the game finishes with a wide. Head fires this down leg and Pakistan complete a sensational win by six wickets at the MCG
10.17pm Pakistan completely outplayed Australia today, absolutely no doubt about that. It began by tying down Australia with spin. Changes in pace, cutters, pace off, change-ups. Australia could only manage 220. Pakistan knew what they were doing all along in that chase. Took their time and put the odd ball away. That's all they needed. A clinical bowling performance followed with a clean, efficient chase. The series is well positioned now, 1-1 after two games, effectively a three-match series now.
Time for the presentation
Steven Smith: "Went a little bit too hard with the bat. Ordinary with the bat in this first two games, aside from Wade's hundred. Need to build partnerships, haven't done that in the past two games. We've been 3 or 4 down when the spinners came on, we haven't been able to play naturally against them. Was always going to be tough, tried as hard as we can. 40 runs short, was a 260 wicket. Outplayed by Pakistan. Chris Lynn's quite sore, someone may come into the squad for him."
Mohammad Hafeez is the Man of the Match: "The boys did a great job, our bowlers did a great job, they got wickets at the right times. We love them, and they love us a lot (the crowd). This is the way to move forward, we have everything to win the series. Missed an opportunity in the last game.
