Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Awais Zia, 2.3 ov), 2-13 (Umar Amin, 2.6 ov), 3-23 (Sohaib Maqsood, 4.3 ov), 4-33 (Ahmed Shehzad, 6.4 ov), 5-36 (Umar Akmal, 7.5 ov), 6-46 (Shahid Afridi, 9.4 ov), 7-57 (Anwar Ali, 12.3 ov), 8-71 (Saad Nasim, 15.6 ov), 9-86 (Wahab Riaz, 18.2 ov)
2.3 to Awais Zia, he's been trying to force the pace and perishes in the attempt. A swat to mid-off where Richardson picks up a smart catch low to his right. The short ball seemed to hold up on the pitch and he was falling away to the leg side as he sought to bludgeon the ball square on the off side. All he ended up was lobbing it down the ground. 13/1
2.6 to Umar Amin, he's not the only one, Uzair! Runs down the track after just three balls faced. This doesn't seem like the pitch to do that and Maxwell makes him pay. The tossed up delivery grips and turns right across his ugly slog and Haddin does the rest. Amin tries his hardest to stretch his back leg to safety but he has lunged too far down the track. 13/2
4.3 to Sohaib Maqsood, timberrrrr! Again his footwork does not afford him enough balance. This ball was a little too full and he got a little too close to it and then drives outside the line. Almost yorked himself as the ball turned from off stump to hit the target. 23/3
15.6 to Saad Nasim, jumps down the track while making room for himself, Starc saw him coming and slung in the yorker on the base of off stump. Hits his target and Australlia huddle up again. Finch claps in earnest as Nasim departs. He wants to go for the kill. 71/8
6.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, taken at slip! A touch shorter, a touch closer to off stump. Shehzad got back and was trying to cut it away but ends up offering a sharp catch to Finch off an outside edge. 33/4
12.3 to Anwar Ali, oh dear, that's not a wicket-taking delivery. it was short, it had width. It should have been cut and sent screaming away to the boundary. But instead he looks to pull, and he wants to pull so very very hard. Almost went off his feet there and after all that effort and he ends up miscues it to mid-on. 57/7
7.5 to Umar Akmal, why would he play that?! Threw his bat at a length ball like it was the last one he might ever play and skies it. It's a swirlier. Shoots up into the Dubai sky but it's no match for a coolly back-tracking Warner from mid-off. 36/5
9.4 to Shahid Afridi, well, this should help soothe the pain. Fires it in full on off stump, Afridi plans his front leg down and goes for a heave. Misses. Hit in front and the umpire sends him packing. 46/6
18.2 to Wahab Riaz, that's the slower ball off the back of the hand, Wahab gets down on one knee for a big mow over midwicket. The slowness of the pitch though produces a top edge that soars into the air. Mitchell Start from square leg runs to his right, he has enough time considering how long that hung in the air. But this is by no means a simple catch. Judges it extremely well and pulls it off with a full-length dive. 86/9

2.3 to AJ Finch, goes for a sweep, but he hasn't controlled it properly. "Catch it," everyone cries and Mohammad Irfan at short fine leg does not disappoint. Dubai is up and buzzing. A top edge removes the Australia captain. 11/1
6.4 to SPD Smith, ooohh, another one! Pakistan are making a fist of this. Smith is livid at affording them the opportunity. He ran down the track and went for another whip, this time in front of the wicket. Wahab, at mid-on, takes a couple of steps to his left, dives and holds on to an important catch. 42/3
5.2 to GJ Maxwell, Welcome back, Star Man. Although this one isn't quite stationary. This time the quicker ball does the batsman. It came in off the deck to catch Maxi, who was possibly hoping to cut a length ball away, napping. The adjustment to hit down the ground isn't quick enough. Struck on the knee-roll and in front of off stump.. 38/2
8.4 to PJ Hughes, goes for a pull, it's not short enough for the pull and he was dragging it from a shade outside off as well. It sails up into the Dubai sky. Sohaib Maqsood runs to his right from slip and holds on!. 56/4
