Mitchell Starc403518.75115110
19.1 to Umar Akmal, is that it? No, he hasn't got hold of the full toss outside off. Swings as best he could but this goes more off the bottom of the bat and sits in the hands of long-on. Gets a pat on the back from his partner and he walks off, dribbling a whole load of sweat behind him. 180/5
Doug Bollinger402817.0093000
1.4 to Ahmed Shehzad, goes for the pull with one that is not at all short enough. Top edge lands into Bollinger's waiting hands and Pakistan lose an early wicket. He was cramped as well, with the line being on middle and off. Pakistan wanted to be a lot more aggressive in this game, but that time it went against them. 7/1
Shane Watson403819.5082201
4.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, dragged on! This was full and outside off stump. Hafeez has been in a frenzy for quick runs and this time he wants to lash this through the covers, takes the inside edge and lights up the stumps.. 25/2
Nathan Coulter-Nile403629.0075010
12.5 to Kamran Akmal, short on off stump and he has slapped this to deep point. Warner makes amends for his misfield earlier with a good running catch right on the boundary. Made room for himself to try and power it over the boundary, but the fielder made good ground to his left to help Australia breathe freer. 121/3
15.5 to Sohaib Maqsood, he was never comfortable out there and a yorker on middle eases his misery. Goes for a leg-side slog and has his furniture rearranged. 147/4

Zulfiqar Babar402626.50135000
0.2 to DA Warner, off-stump is flat on the ground! This was flat and quick and Warner's cut is just a bit too slow! This is a huge wicket for Pakistan. Warner's been in outstanding form over the past few months. But Babar has outsmarted him. What a move by Pakistan.. 4/1
0.6 to SR Watson, turn outside off snares Watson's edge and the keeper takes it! That's two in the over for Babar. Pakistan are on a roll. Goes for another smash over the top but this grips and turns to foil him. 8/2
Mohammad Hafeez201809.0040200
Umar Gul402927.2573000
16.3 to BJ Hodge, Ajmal, you beauty! This was hit like a rocket and he flings both hands up over his head at deep point and snares a very good catch! Pakistan are definitely pulling things back here. Full and outside off, Hodge had cleared his frong leg and had nailed this, but could not place it well enough. Ajmal wears a giant smile. 155/5
18.2 to NM Coulter-Nile, cleans him up! Another one nice and full on middle and leg, Coulter-Nile looks to heave it into the leg side and loses his leg stump. 163/7
Saeed Ajmal403318.25103200
17.4 to AJ Finch, yorker uproots leg stump! Finch is gone! What a crucial blow! He was struggling to get the big hits and Ajmal fires in just about the perfect ball. Finch swings but cannot get under it. 162/6
Shahid Afridi403027.50112200
11.4 to GJ Maxwell, slog off the front foot again, but this time he's picked out deep midwicket! He picked it off a length and it looked good for another six, but the man steadied himself on the boundary and clings on. End of a match-changing innings from Maxwell and Pakistan will breathe a giant sigh of relief. Star man does the trick. 126/3
15.1 to GJ Bailey, looks to lash this through extra cover, but Afridi has snuck through his defences and shattered his stumps. Pakistan sniff a chance to reclaim the advantage here. 146/4
Bilawal Bhatti2036218.0023201
19.4 to BJ Haddin, holes out to deep midwicket! Pakistan have all but secured victory! Full and on the stumps, Haddin targets a slog to beat Malik, but he hasn't timed it well at all. The fielder runs forward and holds on to a good, low catch. 173/9
19.6 to GB Hogg, off goes the leg stump! Pakistan have held their nerve and record a much-needed win! They're back in the World T20. This was fullish and outside leg, Hogg makes room and looks for a loft down the ground, gets an outside edge that clatters into the stumps. 175/10
