Fall of wickets: 1-57 (Ahmed Shehzad, 17.6 ov), 2-96 (Mohammad Hafeez, 34.2 ov), 3-332 (Azhar Ali, 98.1 ov), 4-513 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 150.6 ov), 5-537 (Younis Khan, 155.1 ov), 6-561 (Asad Shafiq, 160.4 ov)
34.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, beauty! That was on a good length in the corridor, with a bit of gentle shape away. Hafeez felt for it with his bat, his feet following after he played the shot, and the thin edge goes through to Haddin. 96/2
98.1 to Azhar Ali, but now he's taken a catch! It's a poor ball, down the leg side, and Azhar only gets a little tickle as he looks to glance, and Warner dives to his left and takes it very well, low, with both hands. 332/3
160.4 to Asad Shafiq, chopped it on! That was short but not wide enough to cut. He went after it, went hard at the ball, and got a bottom edge onto the stumps. 561/6
155.1 to Younis Khan, bowled him! Younis runs down the pitch and looks to slog him across the line, over the leg side, and only gets an inside-edge onto his stumps. The crowd are on their feet to applaud him as he walks back. 537/5
17.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, got him! Shehzad kept playing back to length balls. It was okay as long as he was playing with a straight bat, but this time he looked to work it off the stumps into the leg side and missed. Struck plumb in front of middle, and he didn't review. Good decision.. 57/1
150.6 to Misbah-ul-Haq, wow, what happened there? Smith is convinced he has a caught and bowled. Misbah isn't so sure. It was a full ball on middle, and he either scooped it straight back or it was a bump ball. They're checking with the third umpire... yup, he's gone. It pitched just short of his bat and hit his bat and bounced straight back to the bowler at a nice catching height. 513/4

TOTAL67.2 Ov (RR: 3.87)261
Fall of wickets: 1-21 (Chris Rogers, 4.1 ov), 2-34 (David Warner, 10.2 ov), 3-75 (Glenn Maxwell, 21.1 ov), 4-97 (Nathan Lyon, 28.2 ov), 5-100 (Steven Smith, 29.4 ov), 6-164 (Michael Clarke, 42.5 ov), 7-193 (Brad Haddin, 49.6 ov), 8-199 (Mitchell Johnson, 51.6 ov), 9-261 (Mitchell Marsh, 66.6 ov), 10-261 (Peter Siddle, 67.2 ov)
4.1 to CJL Rogers, gone! That was a beautiful line and length. On off stump, and Rogers was stuck on the crease, walking into the shot, poking at it as it angled away, and Sarfraz takes the edge very well, tumbling low to his left. 21/1
42.5 to MJ Clarke, there's that reverse swing, and the bails go flying! It curved in wickedly from outside off, and zipped through the gate as Clarke pushed at it, looking to punch to mid-off, and knocked back middle stump. 164/6
66.6 to MR Marsh, and the full-toss has ended his innings! It was angling in towards off stump and he pushed at it with his hands and mid-on simply had to lean to his right to catch that at chest height. Unlucky 87 for Marsh, very good innings from him, showed a lot of promise. 261/9
67.2 to PM Siddle, down the track now and that's such a soft dismissal. Hafeez is among the wickets now. He didn't quite get to the pitch and ended up playing a feeble chip, straight down long-on's throat. 261/10
21.1 to GJ Maxwell, bowled him! That was such a low-percentage shot. Came down the track, looked to whip him across the line, against the turn. Closing the face was a mistake. It straightened, beat his bat, and crashed into the top of off stump.. 75/3
29.4 to SPD Smith, plays back to a length ball and it hurries through, straightens a bit, and hits him on the back pad. Another big appeal, not given, but this time they review. He played across the line, looking to hit it leg side, and it hit the top of the pad flap. He's playing right back, and Hawkeye says it's hitting a major chunk of the top of middle. The umpire has to overturn his decision, and Babar is all over Australia.. 100/5
10.2 to DA Warner, gone! And it's the short, wide one that's got him. It deserved to be smashed, but he sort of checked his shot for some reason, and popped it straight into the hands of Yasir at point. 34/2
28.2 to NM Lyon, bowled him! A bit of shape into the right hander, straightened from off stump, and it was the length that got Lyon. He was stuck on the crease and played for the angle, looking to drive down the ground. That opened up a gap between bat and pad and it sneaked through and crashed into the stumps. 97/4
49.6 to BJ Haddin, got him! After ll those big legbreaks, this one didn't turn as much, straightened just a bit, and Haddin came forward to defend, played away from his body, playing for that extra turn, and inside-edged it into his stumps. 193/7
51.6 to MG Johnson, he gets him next ball., Goes for the big slog sweep, the ball bounces and takes his top edge and goes high in the air. Finally, it's Hafeez, the short midwicket fielder, who settles under it to take a simple catch. 199/8

Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Ahmed Shehzad, 0.6 ov), 2-21 (Mohammad Hafeez, 2.4 ov), 3-152 (Younis Khan, 43.4 ov)
0.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, and that's the perfect riposte from Johnson. Speared in from wide of the crease, yorks Shehzad, beating him for pace, and hits the base of off stump. 14/1
2.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, two down. Mitch bangs it in short, Hafeez looks to pull from wide outside off. It's too quick for that and he ends up hitting it uppishly to the right of Starc at wide mid-off and he tumbles low to take it inches from the ground. 21/2
43.4 to Younis Khan, short, keeps low, and Younis doesn't review. He rocked back to pull, it went under his bat and struck him near the knee-roll. Raises his bat to the stands as he walks off, enthusiastic cheers from the small crowd that's gathered today. It was turning away, but Hawkeye reckons it would have clipped off stump. Umpire's call, but umpire said out, so good decision not to review.. 152/3

27.4 to DA Warner, gone! Hafeez dangles this up above the eyeline and Warner goes for the slog-sweep. It turns away off the rough, takes his outside edge, and loops into the hands of Yasir at point. 101/4
70.3 to MR Marsh, gone! That was the offbreak turning down the leg side and Marsh went for the flick around the corner. He almost middled it and Shafiq at leg slip took a superb reflex catch, stretching his arms out to his right. 208/5
7.6 to CJL Rogers, gone, is he? Yup, it's given. It turns from leg stump and Rogers looks to work it around the corner. Mistake. He gets a bit of glove on it, I think, and Shafiq takes a super catch at leg slip, diving to his left. The glove contact wasn't too clear, but there must have been, because Rogers didn't review.. 19/1
11.2 to GJ Maxwell, big lbw appeal, given not out, Pakistan have reviewed. It was the skidder that came in from outside off as Maxwell went back to punch. It cramped him and hit him on the back thigh, which is very close to the stumps... is it hitting or is it clearing the top of the stumps? It's struck him in front of middle stump and it's crashing into the top of leg. Australia are two down.. 31/2
13.6 to MJ Clarke, Bowled him! Australia are sinking here. Sharp turn again, and he's playing back to another length ball. Turns from middle stump, beats the outside edge, and crashes into middle and off. He was going back, not across, and that was down to the angle from wide of the crease. 43/3
82.6 to BJ Haddin, bowled him! He came out of his crease, uncertainly, and Babar shortened his length a touch. It didn't turn as much as he expected it and he pushed hard at it in front of his body. He ended up inside edging it and the ball rolled onto his stumps. 238/7
88.3 to NM Lyon, lbw appeal, becomes a bat-pad appeal as it pops to silly point, and it's been given out caught. It seemed to slide on with the angle as he pressed forward to defend, and that looked like pad onto bat and Azhar takes it after a bit of a juggle. Lyon doesn't review, and Pakistan have wrapped up the most dominant series victory possible. They are now No. 3 in the Test rankings.. 246/10
81.2 to SPD Smith, lbw appeal, and he's been given! That slid on as Smith came forward to defend, and he played outside the line, looking for turn. He's reviewed, but it looked pretty plumb. Pitches on middle and off, and it's hitting leg stump, Hawkeye says. Smith goes for 97. That was brilliantly bowled. 238/6
83.1 to MG Johnson, and he sneaks one through! That turned in sharply from the rough, and Johnson went back and across to defend. Inside-edged it, bounced between his legs, and rolled into the stumps. 238/8
87.6 to MA Starc, got him! this was straighter and tossed up slowly, and Starc went for the big hit over the leg side. He missed, and the ball turned past his inside edge and left his stumps in an awful mess. 245/9
