Game over! Misbah gets forward to a pitched up delivery and chips him high over mid-on's reach
Sorry for the confusion over the scoring. It's been sorted.
That ends a thoroughly professional chase by Pakistan. They have earned a consolation win and for once, their batsmen have done justice to themselves. Akmal and Misbah added 198 for the fourth wicket and as soon as they came together, set about ticking the runs away. They created opportunities, picked the gaps and constantly picked the singles, ensuring their stand was always above a run a ball.
Subhan, from Pakistan: "Its unbelievable how Pakistan chased today, truly amazing, is it the same team who failed to chase 200 on this pitch?
Whenever there are talks going on for replacing Akmal, he comes up with such an innings.. Its better selectors tell him before every match that it will be his last match.."
We'll cut to the presentation.
There are a million prizes to be won. This will take all night.
Akmal gets his Man of the Match award. " Misbah encouraged me. We clicked at the right time. Misbah talked to me after every over."
Clarke is the Man of the Series.
Younis: "The spinners did the job for us first. It was a team effort. We were talking about rotate the strike before the chase. They finished very well. Kamran has always done the job at the top of the order. I have learnt a lot from the Aussies in this series about handling pressure. This is a young team and they are gelling well."
Clarke: "It was another great. Full credit to Pakistan. With 250 we were still confident, we let ourselves down in the field. Watson deserved his century. I will return home so I will miss the Twenty20. Few of the guys will have a round of golf tomorrow."
The PCB has given a special award of Rs 500,000 for Kamran Akmal. Very generous gesture. This shows how much this win means for them.
Thanks for your company. Do join us for the one-off Twenty20 on May 7 in Dubai. This is Kanishkaa signing off. Cheers!
he bangs in the bouncer and Misbah fails to make contact on the hook
he pushes it hard to mid-off and yells at his partner to stay back
yet another half tracker, he swivels and thumps it high over midwicket, nobody patrolling the area to stop that
drops it fractionally short and Misbah gets into position early for the pull rolls his wrists and thumps him past the fielder who sprints from deep square leg
this time he stays at the crease, comes to the pitch of the ball and drives elegantly through the covers
slides wide down the leg side, wide called
he has a huge swing and a miss, he wants to finish this off now
this time ha backs away and goes squarer, he scoops it over backward point this time, it's the highest score by a wicketkeeper against Australia after Ken Wadsworth and Sangakkara
he makes room to a slower ball and scoops him over extra cover
swings on the pads and he clips it with ease down to deep midwicket
full and swinging inwards, he pushes it to mid-on
Pakistan have taken the 3rd Powerplay
tosses it on middle and leg, he gets on his knee and slog sweeps him just over the reach of deep square leg who leaps up, a few inches more and it would have been a six
gets forward and pushes it to long-on
rocks back and cuts it to point
he sweeps it to fine leg and brings up his fifth ODI hundred! Akmal gets on his knee and does the sajda, Younis is on his feet
kneels down early and sweeps to fine leg
sweeps and places it to short fine leg
chance! Akmal jams out a reverse swinging yorker on the full to the off side and the fielder has a shy at the stumps from cover point, a direct hit by Clarke may have sent Akmal back
