BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc18.255242.83884010
38.3 to Haris Sohail, caught behind! Too easy. 143kph back of a length well wide of off, he doesn't need to play, no footwork, he stands up and plays with the vertical bat away from the body, gets a thin edge and it's an easy catch for Paine!. 77/3
80.4 to Yasir Shah, cleans him up; this is what makes Starc so lethal! Perfect yorker, right in the gap between bat and pad. Yasir tried to sort his feet out but it goes straight through the gate and clatters into middle stump. Will Starc run through the rest now?. 227/7
80.5 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, big appeal for caught behind. There was a huge appeal, and in all honesty there was a sound. Paine belatedly reviews. And there's a clear nick. Shaheen is on his way! Starc is on a hat-trick. 227/8
86.2 to Naseem Shah, and that's it. Naseem's spirited, brief resistance comes to an end. Caught on the crease, Naseem got a top edge that went straight up, allowing Starc to get underneath it and pouch the simplest of catches.Pakistan all out for 240. 240/10
Josh Hazlewood2064622.301016001
33.2 to Azhar Ali, edged and caught at first slip! Brilliant catch from Burns diving forward. Superb bowling. Again that probing length and line, on a fourth stump, Azhar has to play, it nips away this time, catches the edge near the stickers and it flies low to first slip, Burns dives forward and gets his hands underneath it. Great take.. 75/2
39.2 to Babar Azam, disaster! catastrophe for Pakistan! Babar falls in the most un-Babar fashion you could imagine. Full and wide, and Babar launched into an expansive drive fourth ball into his innings. Got a juicy edge that flew to the slips, where Burns completed a comfortable catch. 78/4
Pat Cummins2276032.7211012000
32.6 to Shan Masood, caught at second slip! Got him this time! Back of a length, angled in and climbing, Masood was uncomfortable on the back foot, working across the line, closing the face, it comes off the edge and flies to second slip and Smith pouches the catch comfortably.. 75/1
54.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, caught behind! Oh dear! Almost a mirror image of Haris. 138kph back of a length outside off, he wafted with no footwork and he gets a thin edge to Paine. But replays show Cummins hasn't got any part of his foot behind the line! It's close but it looks like a no ball. No he's given out! What?! I have no idea what part of his boot was behind the line. I must be watching something different. 143/6
81.4 to Asad Shafiq, that's a ripper. Never mind about the tail, Cummins has cleaned Shafiq up. Did the tail mess with his concentration? Just left a huge gap between bat and pad, and the ball jagged back, going right through it to rattle middle stump. Shafiq goes for a well-made 76; you'd think Australia will bat a few overs today. 227/9
Nathan Lyon1734012.35763000
45.1 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Lyon strikes first ball! Pretty careless from the batsman. Steps out to defend in front of his body, gets a thick inside edge onto his pad, and short leg is standing to gleefully pouch the easiest catch. Soft, soft dismissal. Australia insurgent. 94/5

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Shaheen Shah Afridi3479622.821508002
148.5 to TD Paine, caught at second slip! Bottom edge trying to pull, onto thigh pad and it pops up to second slip! From around the wicket, not that short, back of a good length, he tried to pull and got cramped, got a little bottom edge, it hit the thigh pad and ballooned up to Asad Shafiq at second slip. Unfortunate way to go but it wasn't short enough to pull. 545/6
150.2 to M Labuschagne, caught at gully! Soft way to go. Labuschagne lost all concentration there. Full and wide, it tailed away a touch, he reached out to play a nothing shot and just sliced it straight to gully. He remained at the crease for a while, just in disbelief at what he had done. 546/7
Imran Khan2437313.041068000
154.3 to PJ Cummins, caught behind! Superb catch from Rizwan! Very wide half volley, he thrashed at a square drive, got a little edge off the toe of the bat, Rizwan had to dive forward and to his right to pouch it and he got his gloves underneath it. He's been excellent behind the stumps. 567/9
Naseem Shah2016813.40784001
100.5 to DA Warner, Got him! Caught behind off the bottom edge! Sensational bowling from Naseem! He deserved that. A brute of a short ball. Angled in and following him, he couldn't get out of the way, got a bottom edge as he tried to sway inside it, Rizwan dives low to his left and takes a great catch.. 351/2
Iftikhar Ahmed1205304.41476100
Yasir Shah48.4120544.2117923000
60.5 to JA Burns, played on around his legs! Burns gone three runs short of a century! The trap worked. A looping leg break outside leg, he gets down to sweep and drags a bottom edge onto leg stump! Burns is shattered. 222/1
103.5 to SPD Smith, and he's cleaned up Smith's off stump! What happened there? landed on off, didn't even turn much. Smith tried to whip this through the onside, and just missed the ball completely. A sense of disbelief around the Gabba as Smith has a rare failure. 358/3
151.6 to MA Starc, Given lbw! Starc has reviewed. This looked plumb live. he went back to a leg break and got hit below the knee roll. Nothing on hot spot or RTS. No bat involved. Ball tracking has it pitching in line and smashing middle and leg. Australia lose a review. Good bowling from Yasir. 559/8
157.4 to JR Hazlewood, Huge lbw appeal and given! Hazlewood reviews. Good length leg break, spinning back down the line, hit him on the shin but he did get a decent stride in. Nothing on hot spot or RTS. No bat involved. Ball tracking has it hitting the bails. It stays out. It was pitching in line, hitting in line, and hitting the bails. Umpire's call. Good decision. 580/10
Haris Sohail1917523.94697000
131.6 to MS Wade, and Wade nicks off to Rizwan! He looked to open the face and run it down to third man. The edge ended up being a little too fine, and even Rizwan appeared surprised to find the ball in his gloves. Soft dismissal, but Pakistan will take it!. 468/4
139.5 to TM Head, gone! Haris has another one!. Absolutely superb catch, too. Anticipates the shot as Haris throws one outside leg stump. Head was looking to tickle it to fine leg and Rizwan moved across to pouch it sharply. Brilliant stuff from the keeper after 140 overs.. 506/5

Mitchell Starc16.217334.46659001
2.5 to Azhar Ali, brings it back in, clatters into his pads, given!. Azhar was very indecisive about reviewing, but does. Got some swing for the first time, and beat Azhar on the inside edge. Umpire's having a look now. Fair delivery, and no inside edge. It's Umpire's Call for hitting the stumps. That means Australia have their first wicket. Pakistan on the ropes. 13/1
4.4 to Haris Sohail, and gone! Carbon copy of the dismissal in the first innings. Back of a length outside off stump. Haris could have let that go but prodded at it. The ball moved ever so slightly away from him, Taking the bat's outside edge and sending back the number three. 25/2
84.2 to Imran Khan, caught at long on! Australia win by an innings! 147kph, length ball, the field was back after that first shot, he swung hard and miscued it high towards long on, Wade had to wait a long time while underneath it but he takes it safely. 335/10
Pat Cummins2166923.28978010
6.4 to Asad Shafiq, gone! That's irresistible bowling! There's little you can do about that. On off stump, seaming away with a bit of extra bounce. Asad wanted to dead-bat it. It took the outside edge and flew towards Steve Smith at third slip. 25/3
28.3 to Shan Masood, caught behind! A little tickle trying to hook a bouncer! This was a very high bouncer over leg, Shan has been taking the hook shot on, he tried again but it was too high to get on top off, the ball brushed the top edge and flew through to Paine who took it above his head.. 93/4
Josh Hazlewood2136343.00947000
29.3 to Iftikhar Ahmed, caught behind! Superb delivery! 132kph, on the money, perfect length, angled in from wider on the crease, it jags away off the seam, he has to play but he's caught on the crease, squared up, a little edge through to Paine and a simple catch for the skipper. 94/5
79.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, Oh no! Holes out at deep backward point! Just got sucked into a trap. Short and wide outside off, he has played the upper cut well in this innings but there's a man placed at deep backward point and he hit it straight to him! Easy catch for Lyon. 305/7
81.1 to Yasir Shah, leading edge caught at mid off! This was angled down leg, he tried to flick this off the pads over backward square, closed the face too soon, it balloons towards mid off and Wade runs across from a wide position to take the catch sliding on his knees. 324/8
83.4 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, caught at cover! 133kph, short ball, he swipes across the line with a wild heave, catches it high on the bat, it slices up to cover and Cummins moves across to take a simple catch. 331/9
Nathan Lyon2137413.52899000
63.6 to Babar Azam, and the wicket finally comes. Babar rocked back and tried to drive through the covers, , but just played own the wrong line, got a thick outside edge, and Paine did the rest. Australia had been coming close to a wicket, though you would have thought Rizwan was more at threat.. 226/6
