40.1 to Kamran Akmal, gone! Bowled on a length on middle, walks across and chips it straight to David Hussey at midwicket, mistimed there, had tried to clear him, six down.. 161/6
42.3 to Shahid Afridi, edged and Haddin flings himself to his right to snap that out of thin air, superb catch! Fraction full on the off, makes room while simultaneously stepping out, tries to launch it over the in-field on the off side, gets a thick edge and the keeper pulls off a beauty. Big blow that!. 176/7
Nathan Hauritz1014134.10354000
19.5 to Shoaib Malik, well caught by Haddin, bowled it a touch flat outside off, Malik charged down the pitch and had a massive swing at it, got the inside edge as it spun in, hit the boot and lobbed up in front of Haddin who dived to pluck it inches from the ground, it's been referred to the third umpire who rightly gives it OUT after taking ages to come up with a decision, though it looked pretty straightforward. It didn't flash on the screen, the buttons don't seem to be working, but the message is out to the players in the middle. 71/3
27.3 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Misbah goes for the reverse-sweep and finds David Husey at short third, quicker on outside off and he tries to help it on its way, went really quickly towards Hussey to dived full length to his right to pluck a sharp one, stayed alert throughout. 103/4
33.3 to Salman Butt, Hauritz takes three, dipped into him and appeared to stop on him a little, chips it, with hardly any conviction, straight to Symonds who dives forward at cover. 122/5
Ben Laughlin905716.33277100
16.1 to Younis Khan, he strikes immediately! A tame dismissal really, short and wide, goes for the cut, swings away as he plays the shot, takes the outside edge and Haddin makes no mistake. 58/2
Andrew Symonds201226.0061000
45.4 to Umar Gul, flighted outside off, bent down, got down on one knee to sweep that over square leg, got the top edge and Hauritz ran well to his left from deep square leg, timed his dive well, and made amends for that drop earlier. 206/8
45.5 to Shoaib Akhtar, superb catch by Clarke! Short on the off, gets back and punches it hard, almost clears cover but Clarke leaps and plucks it with his left hand out of thin air to send Shoaib back. 206/9

Umar Gul1005115.10335001
3.5 to BJ Haddin, atrocious shot! Good length on the off, he made room and tried to heave that over the leg-side field, missed and the offstump was pegged back, deserves to go!. 16/1
Iftikhar Anjum903203.55322000
Shahid Afridi1003823.80352010
21.2 to JR Hopes, looked plumb, dipped into the right hander, landed on leg stump and straightened, he was into the sweep, missed it, was rapped on the pads and Asad Rauf, after a long,hard look, raises his finger. 93/3
39.6 to A Symonds, bowled'im!!! Kept really low, a legspinner, short on leg stump and spun away but he wasn't able to get his bat down in time as he tried to play the pull, it crashes into the stumps. 183/4
Saeed Ajmal703715.28251110
20.6 to SR Watson, gone! Stopped on him, slower through the air, Watson bent low to pull it in front of square, was the doosra, withdrew from the shot at the last moment, got the top edge and Younis ran well to his left from slip to pouch that. 93/2
