Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-30 (Shaun Marsh, 6.5 ov), 2-55 (Brad Haddin, 11.3 ov), 3-77 (Michael Clarke, 14.5 ov), 4-110 (Ricky Ponting, 21.4 ov), 5-159 (Cameron White, 34.5 ov), 6-190 (James Hopes, 39.4 ov), 7-270 (Michael Hussey, 48.6 ov), 8-275 (Ryan Harris, 49.4 ov)
6.5 to SE Marsh, Kamran Akmal takes a superb catch to send back Marsh, who hasn't quite looked at his best today, Asif keeps nagging away just outside off, in McGrath-esque fashion, induces the outside edge which was flying to the right of Younis at first slip, Kamran flings himself full length and snaps that one up. 30/1
39.4 to JR Hopes, Asif you beauty! lovely offcutter, the same top-of-off attack, Hopes pushes half-forward, sees it is shorter than that and goes back, but by then the inwards movement has squeezed onto off and middle. 190/6
49.4 to RJ Harris, slower ball, wide of him as he backs away, creating enough distance, and it spoons off the top edge to extra cover where Afridi takes the dolly. 275/8
11.3 to BJ Haddin, bowled him! what a comeback from Rana, full and straight and fast at 142ks, inches short of being a yorker, tailing in, and Haddin for a change looks to slog it to leg and plays all over it. 55/2
21.4 to RT Ponting, oh beautifully bowled, angling in, Ponting is drawn into working it to on, and it turns all the away across him, takes a big leading edge, and Akmal somehow manages to hold on to this one: off the chest, it gets stuck between the thighs, some four attempts in between - funny but true. 110/4
34.5 to CL White, White has perished - never really looked in actually, makes room, goes for the inside-out shot, but lofts it much too straight and Asif at three-quarters long-off moves well, judges well, holds it well behind his body, and is helped by the ball sticking to the tip of his fingers. 159/5
48.6 to MEK Hussey, leading edge and he is gone! looks to work it to leg for a single and the ball turns enough to take the front edge. Smartly, though, they don't cross even as the ball lobs to cover. As a result, Hauritz keeps strike. 270/7

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Salman Butt, 0.4 ov), 2-14 (Younis Khan, 4.1 ov), 3-38 (Kamran Akmal, 9.3 ov), 4-39 (Mohammad Yousuf, 9.5 ov), 5-99 (Fawad Alam, 27.1 ov), 6-125 (Umar Akmal, 29.2 ov), 7-125 (Naved-ul-Hasan, 29.3 ov), 8-131 (Shahid Afridi, 30.6 ov), 9-140 (Saeed Ajmal, 34.4 ov), 10-142 (Iftikhar Anjum, 37.5 ov)
0.4 to Salman Butt, oh what a ripper from White at second slip, smart bowling from Harris, this one doesn't swing in to Butt - three inswingers followed by the angling delivery, takes the healthy edge as Butt is tentative, and White at second slip dives full length to his left and takes it clean as a whistle. 2/1
4.1 to Younis Khan, edged and taken, Harris has taken two wickets without giving a run! And what a beauty to get his second wicket too, pitched just back of a length, just outside off, Younis has to play at it, and the away movement does the rest. 14/2
29.2 to Umar Akmal, No. 3 for Harris! Umar looks to drop it at his feet and get Afridi on strike, even softer than the previous time. Too soft it turns it out, as it bounces in the crease, and hits it bat again and rolls onto ever so gently hit the stumps enough to tickle the bail off its groove. 125/6
29.3 to Naved-ul-Hasan, he is on a hat-trick, what a beauty to get Rana, that's a mean delivery to get first up. Back of a length, around off, making him play, and then holding its line enough to take the edge. 125/7
37.5 to Iftikhar Anjum, Ten wickets in two matches for Harris, and has he worked this one out beautifully or what? Four short deliveries, tucking him up, getting a short leg in, keeping him in the crease, and then sucker punch, full and wide, and the edge flies to right of Haddin who dives and takes it single-handed. No. 5 for Haddin too. I think Waqar Younis holds the record for most back-to-back five-fors in ODIs, he got three. Harris has got two. 142/10
9.3 to Kamran Akmal, soft dismissal, goes for the forceful shot through the covers, but it's not short and wide enough, slightly closer than he thinks and the outside edge settles in Haddin's gloves. 38/3
9.5 to Mohammad Yousuf, he's given him! looks to tuck him up with a short delivery into the ribs, goes down the leg side, and there is a noise as it passes Yousuf who is looking to get his hands out of the way. Big shout and given, it could have clipped the shirt too, let's wait for the replay. Tight, tight call, it did hit the shirt, but the Hot Spot shows a slight, the slightest, brush on the bottom glove too. 39/4
30.6 to Shahid Afridi, Boom Boom goes, another top edge on the pull shot, and this one lobs towards short third, Hauritz takes a few strides back and takes a safe catch. 131/8
34.4 to Saeed Ajmal, bowled him! Ajmal should have known better, he plays the same tricks for a living! tossed up high, over the eye level, draws Ajmal into the big shot, and then it dips, suddenly falling a couple of feet shorter than it looked like, and then breaks in and goes through the gate. 140/9
