Dirk Nannes413218.00113120
16.6 to Khalid Latif, Warner again. Simple catch this time. It was the short delivery around off stump, Latif tried to pull but was in no position for it. The ball lobbed of the edge to mid-off. 145/4
Shaun Tait402506.25123020
Mitchell Johnson403719.25112310
9.4 to Kamran Akmal, What a catch from Warner! Stunning! Kamran falls after an awesome knock. He drove this one uppishly towards deep cover where Warner rushed forward and threw himself forward to take the catch. 82/1
Shane Watson2026013.0012110
Steven Smith2023111.5022100
11.1 to Salman Butt, Warner again. The openers are gone now. Salman went down on his knee to swing it over square-leg but found the man in the deep. Warner moved to his left to take a running catch. Australia trying their best to get back. 89/2
David Hussey302418.0040120
14.2 to Shahid Afridi, Big moment this. Afridi is gone. IT was a full delivery outside off and Afridi tried to heave it away but ended up slicing it towards point. WAtson came in, Haddin rushed out and both collided but Haddin takes it. He was the man with the gloves and it was his catch.. 114/3

Mohammad Amir403538.75105020
0.2 to DA Warner, Warner is gone for a duck. They are dancing in the aisles. It was the full length delivery going away from Warner who cuts it straight to backward point. That boy Umar again! What a start for Pakistan. What a tame dismissal. A very soft shot.. 1/1
2.3 to SR Watson, What a moment this. The openers are back in the hutch. Pressure. Watson has hit a full delivery straight to long-on! The Pakistan dug-out is celebrating. The fans are screaming in joy. Enter Pup. The Australian captain is in the middle. What can he do now?. 26/2
16.3 to CL White, Is this the moment of the chase? And would you believe it, it was a full toss that did the trick for Pakistan. A full toss on the off stump line. White's eyes opens up and he tries to smash it through the line to long-off. Perhaps that was the mistake. He couldn't find enough power behind it and couldn't clear long-off. But what an innings this has been from White. Great to watch. Superb under pressure. But he is gone now.. 139/6
Abdul Razzaq2022011.0053100
Abdur Rehman403328.25100301
7.2 to BJ Haddin, Stumped! Haddin went dancing down the track but the ball curved past him. It dipped rapidly on the advancing Haddin, gripped the surface and broke away to Kamran who does the rest. Third wicket down and Australia are wobbling here in St Lucia.. 58/3
12.3 to DJ Hussey, Another twist. Another wicket. Pakistan keep the heat on. This one was flighted on the leg and middle and Hussey thought .. I will push it to midwicket and get a single and give the strike to White. Mistake. The ball was slower in pace, it grips and straightens and perhaps stops a touch on Hussey who gets a leading edge back to the bowler. Gone! Michael Hussey walks in.. 105/5
Saeed Ajmal3.5046112.00113410
17.1 to SPD Smith, Ajmal can be such a difficult bowler to get away in these circumstances. Those tantalizing doosras. It landed on the middle stump line, Smith was down the track and actually tried to loft it over the off-side which perhaps indicates that he thought it might be the doosra. But no wood on leather. The ball goes past the flashing blade and to Kamran Akmal who very calmly takes off the bails. Ajmal celebrates. What a lovely delivery. 144/7
Shahid Afridi403418.50110400
8.2 to MJ Clarke, The Pakistan captain knocks out his counterpart. Stumped! What a strike. Clarke went down the track for the big hit but met thin air: Afridi hurled it quicker, dragged back the length, kept it flatter and Clarke tried to swipe it across the line but missed. Very good work from Kamran. The bails were off in a flash.. 62/4
