Fall of wickets: 1-205 (Imam-ul-Haq, 62.6 ov), 2-222 (Mohammad Hafeez, 69.3 ov), 3-244 (Azhar Ali, 86.5 ov), 4-260 (Mohammad Abbas, 94.4 ov), 5-410 (Asad Shafiq, 143.4 ov), 6-418 (Babar Azam, 146.4 ov), 7-456 (Haris Sohail, 155.3 ov), 8-470 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 160.1 ov), 9-473 (Bilal Asif, 161.2 ov), 10-482 (Yasir Shah, 164.2 ov)
164.2 to Yasir Shah, appeal for caught behind and they review! This was angled in and tailed away, he jammed the bat down and appeared to hit the ground at the same time as the ball passed the bat. Paine was confident. The third umpire is looking at the slow motion replay and ultra edge. He definitely hits the ground with the bat. The third umpire gives it out based on a small spike on ultra edge!. 482/10
69.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, full on middle, and Hafeez looks to push towards the leg side. Hits his front leg, and Siddle appeals for the lbw. Umpire Kettleborough raises his finger, but Hafeez wants to review! Now... let's see: the ball landed on off stump, and went between bat and pad. No bat-touch, so now it's all about the ball tracking. And that's umpire's call on impact. Would've just about clipped leg stump. Hafeez must go, and what a magnificent innings this has been! Hurt by the double-nelson.. 222/2
94.4 to Mohammad Abbas, bowled him! Length ball just outside off, and jagging away right after hitting the deck. Abbas backs away looking to defend from middle, but the ball sneaks past his edge and crashes into off stump. The nightwatchman, though, has done his job.. 260/4
161.2 to Bilal Asif, through the gates! Length ball on off, and the incoming delivery is inside-edged onto the stumps. Tries to slog across the line, and it crashes into middle. Siddle is pumped!. 473/9
62.6 to Imam-ul-Haq, there's the wicket! Length ball just outside off. Went straight through, and Imam top-edges the cut into Paine's gloves. Too close to his body for the cut. Way too close. Finally a smile among the Australians.. 205/1
155.3 to Haris Sohail, feather touch! The centurion must make his way back. Length ball on the fourth-stump line, and it skids right through. Sohail wants to try his favourite cut shot, but it's too close his body. Off the bat's shoulder and into Paine's gloves.. 456/7
86.5 to Azhar Ali, Hole out mid off! This was tossed up outside off, Azhar looked to loft over the man at mid off, it was just a touch slower and held up in the wicket, he mis-hits to mid off and Starc diving forward takes the catch low to the ground! Huge mistake from Azhar near stumps. 244/3
143.4 to Asad Shafiq, He's done it! Nicked him off! Amazing delivery from Labuschagne for his first Test wicket! This was the perfect leg break, lured Shafiq into a forward defence, spun and bounced, brushed the outside edge and Paine takes a good catch! Wow!. 410/5

Fall of wickets: 1-142 (Aaron Finch, 51.4 ov), 2-160 (Shaun Marsh, 59.2 ov), 3-167 (Usman Khawaja, 61.6 ov), 4-171 (Travis Head, 65.3 ov), 5-171 (Marnus Labuschagne, 65.5 ov), 6-183 (Mitchell Marsh, 74.3 ov), 7-183 (Tim Paine, 75.1 ov), 8-191 (Mitchell Starc, 78.4 ov), 9-202 (Peter Siddle, 82.5 ov), 10-202 (Nathan Lyon, 83.3 ov)
51.4 to AJ Finch, Got him! What a catch at short mid on! Brilliant captaincy and tactics. This was another fuller length ball angling in, he tried to drive hard on the up down the ground but hit a low hard catch to the short mid on near the pitch and Shafiq took a superb catch just above the ground. Finch's debut innings ends. 142/1
74.3 to MR Marsh, Plumb LBW! Great bowling and great plans. He has attacked the stumps relentlessly all day, this was a good length angling in, Marsh plays back and it keeps a touch low, shoots through, he misses it and it hits him plumb in front of middle and leg. Not a tough decision. It looked plumb but Hawk eye had it clipping leg. Still umpire's call was out and Marsh walked immediately. 183/6
78.4 to MA Starc, edged and caught behind! Superb low catch from Sarfraz! Good delivery, good length, produced the drive, it just reversed away a fraction, caught the edge, Sarfraz had to dive low to his left to catch it just above the turf. Abbas has been brilliant!. 191/8
82.5 to PM Siddle, bowled him! Straight through the gate! It was a full inswinger that spears in towards off stump, Siddle tries to drive but leaves a gaping hole between bat and pad, he gets a small inside edge but it cannons into the stumps! Four for Abbas. 202/9
59.2 to SE Marsh, first Test wicket for Bilal and it's Marsh who has fallen to a full-blooded drive that he nicks to slip. Saw this tossed up, there was an invitation to drive which Shaun Marsh couldn't resist. Went at it with hard hands but was playing away from the body. Wasn't leaning into the stroke, the bat was also down at an angle and the edge pouched superbly by Shafiq over his head. There was plenty of turn from the rough, something to encourage the spinners.. 160/2
61.6 to UT Khawaja, Khawaja walks and he's out to a very tame shot! Second wicket for Bilal and Pakistan are on fire. This is a premeditated attempt to sweep, the length was much shorter and so there's bounce which gets big on him, Khawaja was through early into the stroke and was nearly through with it as it lobbed off the glove to short leg.. 167/3
65.3 to TM Head, edged and taken at second slip! Brilliant bowling and a debut duck for Head! Tossed up off break, lured into the drive and he's drives way too hard, gets an edge and Sohail takes the sharp chance moving to his left at second slip.. 171/4
65.5 to M Labuschagne, caught at short leg! Another one goes! Inside edge onto pad and taken by Imam at short leg! This was tossed up on middle, he pressed forward trying to smother the spin, it just spins and bounces enough to catch the inside edge, onto front pad, and straight Imam who swallows the simple chance.. 171/5
75.1 to TD Paine, Shout for bat pad and given! Tim Paine has reviewed this. It was tossed up and going down leg, he stretched forward and get his pad in line, it came off the inside edge onto pad and flew to short leg! Ultra edge shows a tiny spike when the ball is next to the bat on the slow-motion replay! Paine is out and they lose a review.. 183/7
83.3 to NM Lyon, caught sweeping at forward square leg! Australia all out! He has been sweeping relentlessly, it was tossed up outside off, he sweeps hard but flat straight to the man placed perfectly for him and it's a simple waist high catch for Azhar!. 202/10

Fall of wickets: 1-37 (Mohammad Hafeez, 12.5 ov), 2-38 (Bilal Asif, 13.6 ov), 3-45 (Azhar Ali, 16.2 ov), 4-110 (Imam-ul-Haq, 38.6 ov), 5-110 (Haris Sohail, 39.4 ov), 6-181 (Asad Shafiq, 57.5 ov)
13.6 to Bilal Asif, sharp catch at backward short leg and he's gone. Turn, fizz and bounce, Bilal plays down the wrong line as this flies off a thick inside edge as backward short leg takes the catch. Excellent reflexes from Travis Head.. 38/2
57.5 to Asad Shafiq, caught at deep midwicket! A mistake from Shafiq. This was tossed up very full outside off, he hung in the crease and tried to launch this high with the spin to deep midwicket but he couldn't clear Mitch Marsh on the rope. Lyon goes past Lance Gibbs on the all-time Test wickets list. He also equals Brett Lee with 310 Test wickets for Australia.. 181/6
12.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, beautiful catch at silly point and Hafeez is gone! There's turn and bounce, perhaps stopped on Hafeez who checked his jab, got the leading edge and Labuschagne stayed nice and low as the ball hit him on the stomach and then got stuck in between his thighs. Unlucky way to go for Hafeez.. 37/1
16.2 to Azhar Ali, big appeal for lbw, not given. The big question is if this one straightened enough? Australia have taken a review.. This one appears to have pitched on leg stump, turned a wee bit away. Azhar plays outside the line and there is no bat involved. So now, it's down to an lbw as a catch to bat-pad can be safely ruled out. All three reds on replay, so the decision has been overturned, Azhar is gone.. 45/3
38.6 to Imam-ul-Haq, beautiful bowling. He saw him chip down the track just before he delivered, so tossed this up just a touch wide outside off, making Imam lunge more than he would. He does just that and ends up chipping it back to Holland. Imam has missed out on a half-century, but has done his job nonetheless. That Australia didn't celebrate much tells you how far behind they are in this Test match.. 110/4
39.4 to Haris Sohail, shapes to pull but is through with the stroke very early. Hit low on the pad as he swivelled and missed. Not given by the on-field umpire, so Australia review. I thought this was misting middle. Yes, that's what the impact looks like. Now the question is if there was a thin inside edge. Doesn't appear so, which means he's a dead duck. Ball tracking confirms this would've crashed into middle and leg, so Haris Sohail is gone. Not sure how he missed the pull shot to a half-tracker, not sure why the umpire didn't give him out. In the end, the correct decision is made.. 110/5

29.4 to AJ Finch, LBW appeal! Given out! Will he review? He does. Finch calls for a review. This was a great length, shaping back hits him pad first, impact is in line and Hawkeye has it hitting the stumps! It just came back enough as he was half forward, not expecting it to shape back. Finch goes for 49. Great bowling from Abbas. Gets him twice in the Test.. 87/1
29.6 to SE Marsh, edged and caught behind! Brilliant delivery from around the wicket! What an over. Good length, angling in, forces Marsh to prod forward and play, it just leaves him a fraction through the air, gets a little outside edge and Sarfraz is shouting even before he pouches it! Brilliant from Abbas!. 87/2
31.4 to MR Marsh, Huge LBW shout! Given not out. But Sarfraz has reviewed. This was very full and swing back in. It's pad first! Out! It was almost a half-volley and he fell over with his head, jammed bat and pad together. The umpire obviously felt it was bat first. The slow motion replay showed pad first. Hawkeye ball tracking showed it hit him inline and was crashing into leg stump! Great review from Sarfraz!. 87/3
80.1 to TM Head, LBW! The new ball does the trick! Around the wicket, he floats up an off break on off stump, the new ball skids on the surface, he's caught on the crease playing for turn, it skids into his back pad, he is as plumb! No review even considered. Travis Head knew straight away he was in trouble and walked off shattered. 219/4
89.1 to M Labuschagne, LBW! Brilliant from Yasir! This was the plan. He pushed through a leg break quicker, he was deceived in the air, he went back onto his stumps to defend, it skidded on and crashed into the pads infront of middle. Trademark scalp from Yasir.. 252/5
125.3 to UT Khawaja, this looks out! Khawaja reviews the lbw decision. He has missed the sweep. Was that a googly though? Yes it was....this will be marginal on impact. It could be umpire's bat on it. He's gone! Impact is in line! That is also Australia's last review. A superb innings comes to an end - and it's been done by some smart field placement. They put in a deep-ish gully fielder that took out the reverse sweep. They had short leg and leg gully, so the forward block was dangerous with the ball ripping in from around the wicket. He had to play the sweep - and he missed it. Yasir delivers when it's most needed. But what a knock for Khawaja. He has finally arrived, beyond doubt, in excruciating conditions. 331/6
127.1 to MA Starc, what a catch! Babar Azam flies to his right at short leg, one-handed, and holds on to a ripper! Like a man who won't accept anything other than a win! Stunning. Yasir pushes Starc back with a flatter one outside off. It's at a length and it lifts up at him. He jabs with hard hands and Babar, who stayed low long enough, springs up and follows it closely as he dives backwards and to his right. 333/7
127.4 to PM Siddle, and another! Did that pitch outside leg though? Looks close! But Yasir has done it again. He's pushed the lower order batsman onto the back foot - they are not good enough to do that against him on the fifth day with an hour to stumps. Siddle goes deep in the crease and closes the face on it. He is struck in front of middle. We'll wait for replays to see if that pitched outside leg...nope, it pitched in line.. 333/8
