Ryan Harris1014434.40363110
0.5 to Salman Butt, oh what a soft dismissal, four deliveries wide of him and left alone, Harris bowls in the same area again, and Butt chases it. No feet involved, just a tentative push away from the body, and the edge settles comfortably in Haddin's gloves. 0/1
41.4 to Shahid Afridi, Boom Boom goes Bust - another bouncer, Afridi pulls off the front foot, gets it high on the bat, and it lobs towards mid-off, where Hauritz takes a smart catch running forward. 162/6
46.6 to Naved-ul-Hasan, that's No. 3 for Harris, the third five-for is still on! Rana is expecting a yorker and stays in the crease, Harris doesn't go for the yorker, instead a fast and straight length delivery, aimed for the off stump, Rana pushes at it away from his body, and loses his off stump. 189/8
Mitchell Johnson1014224.20363010
1.5 to Khalid Latif, and just like that, another one goes, stays back to a fullish delivery, plays in front of his body, and it goes in the air to the left of Johnson, whose left hand pushes Pakistan down to 2 for 0! It wasn't even a slower one - 146ks. If somebody's slower ball comes at 146ks, though, devil save us from the faster one. There was a puff of dust when the ball pitched, so it could just have stopped at Latif. 0/2
45.5 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, makes room and toe-ends straight to extra cover, White wouldn't miss this one. 180/7
Clint McKay9.333543.68383100
8.5 to Younis Khan, another Aussie bowler gets a wicket in his first over - actually all three have struck with their fifth deliveries! And another soft dismissal here, this is a length delivery fairly wide of off, Younis gets half a move forward and pushes at it away from his body, the edge is snapped by Haddin. 16/3
40.4 to Umar Akmal, slower ball again, but the drop in pace is not as big, 132ks, and it's full and straight, and Akmal is too early into the slog shot over midwicket, and ends up playing all around it. 158/5
49.2 to Iftikhar Anjum, Ponting picks this one late, and then virtually flies across to hold onto this one. McKay goes fast and follows a backing-away Rao, and gets out a limp shot, lobbed towards midwicket where Ponting does the rest. 212/9
49.3 to Fawad Alam, Yes he can! Alam gets too much under this length delivery and can't clear mid-on. 212/10

Mohammad Asif1004014.00353010
11.4 to SE Marsh, again a cut shot goes to hand, but this time not on the bounce, has to be at least a fifth cut for no runs from Marsh, a touch too full perhaps for the shot and he hits neck high to Alam at backward point - not all the way back at the edge of the circle, a sort of short backward point. 54/2
5.1 to BJ Haddin, Haddin is gone! goes for one forceful shot too many, looking to go over covers but the ball isn't full enough for that, and Shoaib Malik takes a comfortable catch at cover. 21/1
44.3 to MG Johnson, and what a time for Rana to strike, loose shot really, shortish, angled across him, Johnson cuts without getting close to it, the edge is snapped by Sarfraz, and Pakistan are in a huddle, they can feel it, they can sense a win around the corner. 178/7
Iftikhar Anjum9.213914.17354011
49.1 to NM Hauritz, oh is there another twist in here? Hauritz looks to work it to leg, moves too far across, the ball seams in, catches him on the crease, in front of middle, Rao you beauty. 210/8
Shahid Afridi1003123.10360110
16.5 to CL White, he has literally worked it onto his stumps, a weird short really, starts off wide, turns away, and he is looking to flick it from way outside off, and plays it on to his middle stump. 73/3
38.6 to JR Hopes, good catch! Afridi pushes it a bit quicker through the air on the off stump, Hopes gets forward to defend but gets a thick outside edge, travels low to Younis at first slip who takes it inches off the ground. 150/6
Shoaib Malik1004824.80263010
31.3 to RT Ponting, Ponting has holed out at long-on, flighted around middle, Ponting steps out, goes for it, doesn't get enough elevation, and Umar Akmal is cool a couple of feet inside the rope. Big wicket for Pakistan. 122/4
35.1 to AC Voges, a much better delivery, flighted, the overspin makes it dip, Voges has been suckered out of his crease, and the ball is not quite as full as it first seemed to be, and the result is a tame chip to midwicket. Game on. 139/5
