Umar Gul9.504814.88334110
38.5 to BW Hilfenhaus, gone! Cleaned him up, straight on middle, he played across the line to work that wide of midwicket, missed it, clipped the pads and crashed into middle and off. 168/10
Shoaib Akhtar603505.83205020
Iftikhar Anjum201809.0032000
Shahid Afridi1003863.80350130
18.4 to BJ Haddin, Haddin goes! Gave it some air, Haddin was drawn forward and he went through with the drive, was not entirely committed to it and hit it straight to Younis who timed his jump to perfection to snap an easy one. Shoaib will be a little relieved there. 95/2
22.1 to A Symonds, Australia in a spot of bother now, the offcutter bowled from the back of the hand, short outside off, spin it, made way for a cut behind point, gloved it straight to the keeper. 107/4
22.6 to SR Watson, He's a legpsinner, but that's actually a classic offspinner's dismissal, threw it up outside off, drawing him forward, he lunges forward to defend, the ball cuts back in sharply to beat him through the gate and the stumps are rattled. 108/5
24.4 to CJ Ferguson, Afridi's on a roll! Flighted outside off, Ferguson was sucked in, came forward to force it through cover, got a thick edge and Misbah snapped it well diving to his left, Australia slide further. 109/6
28.4 to NW Bracken, five-for for Afridi! Done in by the googly again, tossed up outside off and Bracken's eyes lit up, got forward to drive it forcefully through cover, misread the spin and was bowled through the gate. His third five-wicket haul, and his first against Australia. 118/8
30.5 to SR Clark, Afridi gets his best figures in ODIs! He's mastered the googly here, tossed it up outside off, landed on a good length and zipped back in take the off stump as Clarke was beaten through the gate as he came forward to defend. 122/9
Saeed Ajmal1011921.90450000
19.6 to MJ Clarke, the doosra does the trick, short of a length outside off, Clarke tried to open the face to run it down behind point, it spun away to take the outside edge and Akmal made no mistake. 100/3
25.2 to NM Hauritz, bowled'im!! An embarassing dismissal that, spun in sharply from outside off, he shouldered arms to that one, not expecting it to spin as much, and hears the death rattle behind him as it clips off stump. 110/7

Nathan Bracken9.122502.72424000
Ben Hilfenhaus1034224.20487012
1.4 to Salman Butt, he's given him! Australia strike early, landed on a good length on middle and leg and came on quickly to Butt as it swung in to rap him on the pads on the back foot, struck him in line with leg stump and the umpire Nadeem Ghauri raised his finger immediately. 5/1
34.4 to Shahid Afridi, gone! But it may have come a little too late here. Slower one and Afridi failed to pick it, went through with his attempt to clear the in-field, mistimed it and Bracken took a dolly at mid-on. 138/5
James Hopes812222.75363000
10.2 to Younis Khan, tame dismissal, they had quietened them down and one of them just had to snap! Short on the off, Younis walks across to pull it away over midwicket, mistimes it completely and he gifts an easy catch to Bracken at mid-on. 33/2
29.3 to Shoaib Malik, edged and Haddin takes a stunning catch! Tried to flirt with it and paid the price, a legcutter landing short outside off, he tried to run that past the keeper but couldn't get it wide enough, Haddin dived to his right, and dived low, to pluck that with his right hand inches from the ground. 99/4
Stuart Clark813214.00355000
20.6 to Kamran Akmal, gone this time! Took a chance once too often, similar ball to the one that was edged for four earlier in the over, but gets some movement away from the batsman, Akmal goes after it, gets a thick edge and Haddin pouches it well moving to his right. 81/3
Nathan Hauritz602704.50223000
Andrew Symonds301816.00102000
39.4 to Nasir Jamshed, bowled'im! Symonds strikes, drifting into the left hander, went straight on, moved back to chop it wide of cover, got an inside edge straight onto the stumps. 152/6
