Doug Bollinger7.403554.56304001
0.3 to Salman Butt, gone! Full and wide, moved away, chased it, went for an expansive drive, got a thick edge and Haddin dived well to his left to snap a sharp one. 2/1
35.2 to Shoaib Malik, looked plumb, nipped back in from the off, he got forward to defend but was struck just in line, didn't get across enough and played with bat really close to pad. 140/5
44.1 to Shahid Afridi, gone! Big wicket! Short on middle, gets more bounce and is pacy, bowled at 135 kmph, goes for a mighty pull, gets the top edge as it comes on a little too quickly and North takes an easy catch at mid-on. 174/7
48.2 to Shoaib Akhtar, change of pace, slower outside off, tries to swat it over the bowler's head, gets the top edge and Clarke at point takes an excellent catch running backwards. 196/9
48.4 to Saeed Ajmal, Bollinger gets five!! The legcutter, bowled at around 135 kmph, landed on a good length on middle and cut away to beat the bat and clip off stump. 197/10
Nathan Bracken1013123.10392000
3.1 to Younis Khan, drags it onto the stumps, short of a good length outside off, gets a hint of inward movement, Younis plays at it, away from his body, gets a thin edge to clip the off stump. 12/2
47.5 to Sohail Tanvir, gone this time! Identical shot, gets the top edge again but is unfortunate it's not Watson under it again, got it much straighter and Hauritz at mid-on shows his team-mate how it's done. 190/8
Stuart Clark1013913.90402110
36.4 to Kamran Akmal, kept low and pegged back the offstump, short of a good length bowled at 132 kmph, failed to get his bat down in time and timber!. 145/6
James Hopes30501.66130000
Nathan Hauritz1003413.40320000
31.5 to Ahmed Shehzad, his patience was tested and finally, when offered some flight, failed to resist the temptation. Landed full on the off stump, went for a mighty slog-sweep over midwicket, it spun in, took the top-edge and stuck safely in the palms of Ferguson at long-on. 116/4
Marcus North301605.3371000
Michael Clarke402115.25122000
24.4 to Misbah-ul-Haq, plumb, tossed up on middle, went for the sweep after three dot balls, tried to get it behind square, it straightened, he missed and was struck on the back pad in line with the stumps. Bowden raised his finger immediately. 80/3

Shoaib Akhtar704226.00237001
0.2 to BJ Haddin, edged and gone! Shoaib strikes! Short of a good length and moved away, he pushed at it, away from his body, got a thin edge straight to Akmal. 1/1
2.2 to MJ North, he's given him! Landed on a good length on middle and moved away just a touch, was rapped on the pads playing half-forward, was done in by the pace, couldn't get bat behind ball,was struck in line with off. 3/2
