BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shoaib Akhtar714316.14204020
8.5 to BJ Haddin, Sharp catch by the captain! Haddin makes room to a full ball and tries to scoop it over mid-off, the ball makes contact with the bottom half of the bat and travels quickly to Younis at short mid-off who leaps and takes the catch over his head. 58/1
Umar Gul804415.50254100
29.1 to MJ Clarke, Gul finally gets a reward, he lands it on a good length on the corridor outside the offstump and Clarke gets a very thin leading edge as he shapes to clip it to the on side, Gul beat the bat on a few occasions in his first spell so it was a matter of time before he claimed a wicket. 140/3
Yasir Arafat503807.60155111
Saeed Ajmal1004014.00312020
14.6 to MJ North, beaten in flight! North chips down the track on seeing the extra flight but Ajmal cleverly gets it to go through straight and foxes him, Akmal effects an easy stumping. North was probably expecting it to turn away. Ajmal set it up the previous ball by bowling the doosra. 83/2
Shahid Afridi1003603.60362000
Shoaib Malik1004614.60272020
36.3 to A Symonds, tossed up outside off, it's a conventional offspinner and Symonds is a little lazy on the cut and he ends up chopping it onto the base of the offstump. 166/4

Ben Laughlin704806.85187010
Nathan Hauritz1004424.40323000
13.2 to Younis Khan, he takes a couple of paces down the pitch and tries to go downtown with the turn, he doesn't go through with the shot and hence fails to get the elevation, Hilfenhaus runs to his right and takes the catch at wide long-on. 46/2
15.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, Hauritz really deserved it! The ball turns very sharply off the rough and Shehzad shapes to cut but the turn foxes him, the ball clips the top flap of his pad bang in front of the stumps, Aleem Dar is convinced, easy decision. 56/3
