Commentary
  • 45.4 - OUT! Run Out. Kane Richardson to Shaheen Afridi. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover, direct hit by Maxwell. A piece of brilliance from Maxwell finishes the job, an athletic jump and accurate throw catches Sarfaraz short at the non-striker's end.

    Australia have beaten Pakistan by 41 runs in a tense contest in Taunton to leap up the table into second place. The balance of the match shifted back and forth in an absorbing day, in the end the reigning champions did enough to get over the line thanks to a David Warner century and regular wickets from the seamers in the chase. Warner's partnership with Aaron Finch set things up nicely, despite a little wobble at the death, and Pat Cummins was incisive with the ball in hand. Pakistan looked threatening at various stages with Mohammad Amir's maiden ODI five wicket haul the highlight for them, however he really was the lone beacon of hope with the other bowlers not at their best. They will also reflect that their fielding was below par, something which might have ended up costing them the points this Wednesday evening. Attention turns to Trent Bridge tomorrow, where India will take on New Zealand in a mouth-watering encounter.

  • 45.3 - Kane Richardson to Shaheen Afridi. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, Gloved to mid off for no runs, fielded by Finch.

  • 45.2 - Kane Richardson to Shaheen Afridi. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 45.1 - Kane Richardson to Shaheen Afridi. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Richardson.

  • 44.4 - OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to Mohammad Amir. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. Dragged onto the base of middle stump, Starc strikes again to leave Australia on the verge of victory. It's not the greatest delivery the left-armer will ever bowl but he had pushed Amir back in the crease with a couple of fast ones and that caused him to be late on the shot. Heartbreak for Amir after an amazing bowling display earlier in the day.

  • 44.3 - Mitchell Starc to Mohammad Amir. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 44.3 - Wide Mitchell Starc to Mohammad Amir. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Carey.

  • 44.2 - OUT! Caught. Mitchell Starc to Wahab Riaz. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Drama in Taunton, this is a massive moment in the match. It's a tentative appeal from the Aussies, Finch leaves it until the last moment and then eventually signals for a review. He'll be delighted as he sees a little spike on Ultra Edge as the ball passes the bat, he's got it spot on as this tense match continues to amaze. Wahab's brilliant knock comes to an end, Starc is the man for Australia.

  • 41.3 - SIX! Nathan Coulter-Nile to Wahab Riaz. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Audacious batting, the Pakistan fans are starting to believe this will be their day. Wahab is looking more and more confident out there.

  • 41.2 - Nathan Coulter-Nile to Wahab Riaz. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Smith.

  • 41.1 - Nathan Coulter-Nile to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Starc.

  • 40.2 - SIX! Glenn Maxwell to Wahab Riaz. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. No doubt about this one, a full swing of the blade and the ball soars over the helpless Starc at long on. Wahab has carried on where Hassan left off, we are all set for a thrilling finish in Taunton.

  • 40.1 - FOUR! Glenn Maxwell to Wahab Riaz. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, bottom edge past fine leg for 4 runs. That's an almighty hack from Wahab and he gets away with it, Maxwell was an inch away from providing Australia the breakthrough.

  • 39.6 - Pat Cummins to Wahab Riaz. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Finch.

  • 39.5 - Pat Cummins to Wahab Riaz. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Maxwell.

  • 38.6 - SIX! Nathan Coulter-Nile to Wahab Riaz. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Walloped with disdain, Wahab has nailed that right out of the screws. He has showed some ability with the bat in T20 tournaments, can he get his country over the line on the biggest stage of them all?

  • 38.5 - Nathan Coulter-Nile to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, inside edge to silly point for 1 run, fielded by Khawaja.

  • 36.4 - FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Wahab Riaz. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Wahab gets sucked into a booming drive after fending off some short deliveries and even a full length dive from Smith at slip can't get close to it.

  • 36.3 - Mitchell Starc to Wahab Riaz. Short, down leg side on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Maxwell.

  • 36.2 - Mitchell Starc to Wahab Riaz. Short, down leg side on the back foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Starc.

  • 33.6 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Smith.

  • 33.5 - OUT! Caught. Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Khawaja. The fun is over, Khawaja settles under the steepler to send Hassan Ali on his way. Richardson bowled this with some extra fire behind it and the top edge made it simple for the fielder. That was a really entertaining knock, Pakistan will have wanted it to continue much longer than it did.

  • 33.4 - FOUR! Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Richardson is really under pressure now, Hassan Ali has taken a real liking to him and wants to hit every ball to the boundary. This is a shot that a top order batsman would be proud of.

  • 33.3 - FOUR! Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Stand and deliver, the batsman spotted the slower ball and then hammered it into a gap. What a cameo this is turning into.

  • 33.2 - Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 33.1 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to silly mid on for 1 run, shy attempt by Richardson.

  • 32.5 - Glenn Maxwell to Hassan Ali. Off break length ball, to leg down the track driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Coulter-Nile.

  • 32.4 - SIX! Glenn Maxwell to Hassan Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Even Maxwell is left appreciating this shot, a good old fashioned heave that soars over the fence at wide long on. You won't find that stroke in many coaching books.

  • 32.3 - Glenn Maxwell to Hassan Ali. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Finch.

  • 32.2 - Glenn Maxwell to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Smith.

  • 32.1 - Glenn Maxwell to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, inside edge to silly point for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 31.6 - Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 31.5 - SIX! Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Another one, this was a bit more agricultural but just as effective. Hassan Ali is enjoying himself out there.

  • 31.4 - SIX! Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Boom, that's a terrific swat well in front of square for a much needed six runs for Pakistan. They certainly haven't given this up just yet.

  • 31.3 - Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Starc.

  • 31.3 - Wide Kane Richardson to Hassan Ali. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Carey.

  • 31.2 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Cummins.

  • 31.1 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Richardson.

  • 30.6 - Glenn Maxwell to Hassan Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Maxwell.

  • 30.5 - FOUR! Glenn Maxwell to Hassan Ali. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge past third man for 4 runs. Frustration for Maxwell, he's left to regret not having a slip in place to the new batsman.

  • 30.4 - Glenn Maxwell to Hassan Ali. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Smith.

  • 30.3 - Glenn Maxwell to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Marsh.

  • 29.6 - OUT! Caught. Kane Richardson to Asif Ali. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey.

  • 29.5 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Short, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Cummins.

  • 29.4 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, bottom edge to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 29.3 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Cummins.

  • 29.2 - Kane Richardson to Asif Ali. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Coulter-Nile.

  • 29.1 - Kane Richardson to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Cummins.

  • 28.6 - Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Coulter-Nile.

  • 28.5 - Aaron Finch to Asif Ali. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Coulter-Nile.

  • 28.4 - Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock ball back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pushing, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Coulter-Nile.

  • 28.3 - Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock ball back of a length, down leg side backing away cutting, to cover for no runs, fielded by Smith.

  • 27.5 - Pat Cummins to Asif Ali. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Maxwell.

  • 27.4 - Pat Cummins to Asif Ali. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 27.3 - OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Shoaib Malik. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Fantastic bowling, Cummins has his third wicket courtesy of an absolute peach of a delivery. There wasn't much Malik could do about it, especially as he is so new to the crease, it jagged viciously back off the surface to kiss the inside edge. Carey stuck out his left mit to snaffle the ball smartly, Australia are right on top now.

  • 27.2 - Pat Cummins to Shoaib Malik. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot working, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Cummins.

  • 27.1 - Pat Cummins to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Warner. Suicidal running by the captain, Malik was almost gone without facing a ball.

  • 26.6 - OUT! Caught. Aaron Finch to Mohammad Hafeez. Stock ball full toss, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Starc. Oh my word, Hafeez has given his wicket away by hitting a rank full toss straight to the man in the deep. Finch will be calling it inspired captaincy but in reality it's a big slice of luck for the Aussies. That ball deserved to be smashed out of the ground, however Starc was able to steady himself on the edge of the field and accept it coolly with two hands.

  • 26.5 - Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, in the air under control to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Starc.

  • 26.4 - Aaron Finch to Mohammad Hafeez. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Richardson.

  • 26.3 - Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Marsh.

  • 26.2 - Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock length ball, down leg side backing away working, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, stumping missed by Carey. Almost the perfect response from Finch, a bit of grip beats the edge but Carey fumbles the potential stumping opportunity.

  • 26.1 - FOUR! Aaron Finch to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Captain against captain, Sarfaraz unleashes his favourite stroke to send Finch's first delivery to the rope.

  • 25.6 - Pat Cummins to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 1 run.

  • 25.5 - Pat Cummins to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Short, outside off stump ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 25.4 - Pat Cummins to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, for no runs, fielded by Starc.

  • 25.3 - Pat Cummins to Mohammad Hafeez. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run.

  • 25.2 - Pat Cummins to Sarfaraz Ahmed. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Khawaja.

  • 25.1 - OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Imam ul-Haq. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Carey. That's the moment Australia have been searching for, Cummins provides the breakthrough and Imam is left crestfallen. It's a bit of a strange but the bowler doesn't mind, his delight is clear for all to see as he pumps the air with his fists. The batsman will be left wondering why he didn't just leave that delivery well alone, it probably would've been called a wide by the umpire.

  • 17.2 - FOUR! Glenn Maxwell to Mohammad Hafeez. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Hafeez continues to take the attack to Maxwell. He was looking to launch this out of the ground but doesn't quite get it perfectly off the middle so instead it bounces just inside the rope.

Hafeez was treated aggressively by Australia as a fifth bowling option earlier on, now he is going to use the same approach against Maxwell. Fancy footwork and a clean swing of the willow results in a confidence boosting four.

  • 10.5 - OUT! Caught. Nathan Coulter-Nile to Babar Azam. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Richardson. Another catch for Richardson in the deep, Babar can barely believe what has happened. Coulter-Nile got the ball to rise viciously from the surface to take the batsman by surprise, making the stroke very difficult to keep under control. That's an important breakthrough, Australia know it and celebrate noisily.

  • 10.4 - Nathan Coulter-Nile to Babar Azam. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 10.3 - FOUR! Nathan Coulter-Nile to Babar Azam. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. That is a textbook stroke to elicit purrs of delight from the Pakistan faithful. Faultless technique and a pure piece of timing.

  • 7.3 - FOUR! Kane Richardson to Babar Azam. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

  • 6.2 - FOUR! Pat Cummins to Babar Azam. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs.

  • 6.1 - Pat Cummins to Babar Azam. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Coulter-Nile.

  • 5.6 - FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Imam ul-Haq. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Tickled fine, three boundaries in the over and those wearing green in the crowd are starting to find their voices. Starc just strayed onto the pads there and got punished.

  • 5.5 - Mitchell Starc to Imam ul-Haq. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 5.4 - FOUR! Mitchell Starc to Imam ul-Haq. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Whipped away with style, wristy brilliance from the left-hander. Pakistan are starting to grow in confidence.

  • 4.1 - FOUR! Pat Cummins to Babar Azam. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Another imperious drive, Finch has set a very attacking field so there are plenty of gaps for the batsmen to find and Babar is happy to take it on at the moment. This is a thrilling contest.

  • 2.5 - FOUR! Pat Cummins to Babar Azam. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Creamed through point, that's a glorious way to get off the mark. Babar stands tall and sends it rocketing to the rope.

  • 2.3 - Pat Cummins to Babar Azam. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Carey.

  • 2.1 - OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Fakhar Zaman. Seaming away back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Richardson. Slashed straight down the throat of third man, Fakhar couldn't resist throwing his hands at the width but then throws his head back in exasperation as he sees it settle in Richardson's grasp. Extra bounce from Cummins gets Australia a massive early scalp.

  • 1.6 - APPEAL! Mitchell Starc to Imam ul-Haq. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Carey, appeal made for Caught. Unplayable delivery, there is some excitement from behind the stumps but the bowler isn't interested which normally means there was no edge.

  • 48.6 - OUT! Caught. Mohammad Amir to Mitchell Starc. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Malik.

    Mohammad Amir's maiden ODI five wicket haul has lifted Pakistan after a clinical David Warner century had put Australia firmly in control. Warner, combining with his skipper Aaron Finch, helped the current holders of the World Cup to 146 without loss as the Pakistan seamers struggled with their lengths early on. The exception was Amir who found prodigious movement from a fuller length and the left-armer got his rewards later in the innings as the Aussie's crumbled at the death. It is sure to be an interesting chase in Taunton, Australia will be happy with runs on the board but there is plenty of support for Pakistan in the ground and they will be cheering every run with passion.

  • 48.5 - Mohammad Amir to Mitchell Starc. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot glancing, to fine leg for 2 runs, run save by Afridi.

  • 48.4 - Mohammad Amir to Kane Richardson. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 48.3 - OUT! L.B.W. Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Yorker, middle stump no foot movement working, hit pad to. Wonderful bowling, the perfect yorker slides under the bat and strikes Carey on the boot. It is absolutely plumb but the Aussie keeper decides to review it anyway because he is the last recognised batsman.

  • 48.2 - Mohammad Amir to Mitchell Starc. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Afridi.

  • 48.1 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Afridi.

  • 47.6 - Hassan Ali to Mitchell Starc. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 47.5 - Hassan Ali to Mitchell Starc. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved to short leg for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 47.4 - Hassan Ali to Mitchell Starc. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, leading edge to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Hafeez.

  • 47.3 - OUT! Caught. Hassan Ali to Pat Cummins. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Ahmed. Another one, Hassan Ali hasn't been at his best today but at least now he has a wicket to his name. This delivery was always angling back into the right-hander meaning Cummins got a bit cramped for room. A little tickle of the glove and Sarfaraz gobbles it up gleefully.

  • 47.2 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by ul-Haq.

  • 47.1 - Hassan Ali to Pat Cummins. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Malik.

  • 46.6 - Wahab Riaz to Pat Cummins. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Zaman.

  • 46.5 - Wahab Riaz to Pat Cummins. Short, down leg side ducked Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 46.4 - Wahab Riaz to Pat Cummins. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot Late Cut, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 46.3 - Wahab Riaz to Pat Cummins. Length ball, to leg on the back foot defending, to point for no runs, fielded by Azam.

  • 46.2 - OUT! Caught. Wahab Riaz to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Ahmed. Feathered behind, Wahab strikes for the first time today as his skipper safely pouches the edge. Coulter-Nile can be dangerous with the bat, as the West Indies found out recently, however he can't make a big contribution today. Looking to bludgeon it back over the bowler, his feet never really got in a solid position.

  • 46.1 - Wahab Riaz to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 45.6 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 45.5 - Hassan Ali to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Riaz.

  • 45.4 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump moves in front flick, to fine leg for 1 run, run save by Riaz.

  • 45.3 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, inside edge back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 45.2 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Swatted to the fence, you can't bowl that length to Carey because he loves to play the pull shot. Australia are closing in on 300.

  • 45.1 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 44.6 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge to point for 1 run, fielded by Azam.

  • 44.5 - Mohammad Amir to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 44.4 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 44.3 - OUT! Caught. Mohammad Amir to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Malik. Another wicket for Amir, he deserves this success because he beat the bat without reward plenty of times this morning. Marsh was looking to club the ball for six but once again it's the cross-seam delivery which bounces more than expected to cause the poor timing. A simple catch and Australia are starting to lose their way a little bit.

  • 44.2 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Afridi.

  • 44.1 - Mohammad Amir to Shaun Marsh. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to short third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 43.6 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Off cutter half volley, middle stump backing away driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Sublime stroke, picking his spot and manufacturing the ball there by shuffling around the crease. Carey is looking in prime form so far in this World Cup.

  • 43.5 - Hassan Ali to Shaun Marsh. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 43.4 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, shy attempt by Malik.

  • 43.3 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 43.2 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 43.1 - Hassan Ali to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 2 runs, shy attempt by Hafeez, overthrow by Hafeez.

  • 42.6 - Mohammad Amir to Shaun Marsh. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 42.5 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Malik.

  • 42.4 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 42.3 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 42.2 - Mohammad Amir to Alex Carey. Yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Riaz.

  • 42.1 - OUT! Caught. Mohammad Amir to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Riaz. Tamely skewed to mid off, Amir strikes first ball of a spell for the second time in the match. This is just what Pakistan need, wickets will make it harder for Australia to score freely at the death. The ball seemed to stop slightly in the surface and that meant it lobbed up for a simple catch.

  • 41.6 - Hassan Ali to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, hit pad to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Riaz.

  • 41.5 - Hassan Ali to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, to leg down the track pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Hafeez.

  • 41.5 - Wide Hassan Ali to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 41.4 - Hassan Ali to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by ul-Haq.

  • 41.3 - Hassan Ali to Usman Khawaja. Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Zaman.

  • 41.2 - Hassan Ali to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot Steer, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 41.1 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, past fine leg for 4 runs. Nudged fine, runs really flowing again for the Aussies as they look to launch towards a massive total.

  • 40.6 - Wahab Riaz to Shaun Marsh. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 40.5 - FOUR! Wahab Riaz to Shaun Marsh. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Easy pickings, Marsh just had to make sure he threaded the ball between two fielders and the fast outfield did the rest.

  • 40.4 - Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 40.3 - FOUR! Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Really clever batting, Khawaja able to manoeuvre the ball into gaps no matter where Sarfaraz moves his fielders.

  • 40.2 - FOUR! Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control for 4 runs. Fetched with impunity, Khawaja latched onto that in the blink of an eye and made a sweet connection.

  • 40.1 - Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, for no runs, fielded by Azam.

  • 39.6 - Shaheen Afridi to Usman Khawaja. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 39.5 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 39.4 - FOUR! Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Malik. More shoddy fielding, Pakistan have been really poor in that department today. Marsh is the benefactor this time as he gets his first boundary.

  • 39.3 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Zaman.

  • 39.2 - Shaheen Afridi to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 39.1 - Shaheen Afridi to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 38.6 - Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 38.4 - Wahab Riaz to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to gully for no runs.

  • 38.3 - Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by ul-Haq.

  • 38.2 - Wahab Riaz to Usman Khawaja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Riaz.

  • 38.1 - Wahab Riaz to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 37.6 - APPEAL! Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, hit pad to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Zaman, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • 37.5 - OUT! Caught. Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by ul-Haq. This time Pakistan make no mistake, Imam tumbles and clings on to end Warner's classy innings. The centurion was looking to smash this straight down the ground but instead it spooned out square of the wicket. Pakistan are just starting to peg things back but Australia still have plenty of powerful batting to come.

  • 37.4 - Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Afridi.

  • 37.3 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Amir.

  • 37.2 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 36.6 - Wahab Riaz to David Warner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Azam.

  • 36.5 - Wahab Riaz to David Warner. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Malik.

  • 36.4 - Wahab Riaz to Shaun Marsh. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to short mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by Riaz.

  • 36.3 - Wahab Riaz to Shaun Marsh. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 36.2 - Wahab Riaz to David Warner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 36.1 - Wahab Riaz to David Warner. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to third man for 2 runs, dropped catch by Ali, mis-fielded by Ali. Oh dear, this is atrocious from Asif Ali. He's already dropped one dolly today and now he's done it again. It's straight down his throat with Warner making a mistake with his placement but inexplicably put down.

  • 35.6 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Afridi, fielded by Malik.

  • 35.5 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Malik.

  • 35.4 - Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Azam.

  • 35.3 - Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 35.2 - Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Amir.

  • 35.1 - FOUR! Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Edged between keeper and slip, the bowler has his hands on his head but it doesn't stop Warner leaping with joy. You can see that means a lot to him, a massive smile on his face as he removes his helmet and acknowledges his teammates. It's been a superb knock by the left-hander.

  • 34.6 - Mohammad Hafeez to Shaun Marsh. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Malik.

  • 34.5 - Mohammad Hafeez to David Warner. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run.

  • 34.4 - Mohammad Hafeez to Shaun Marsh. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run.

  • 33.5 - Shaheen Afridi to Shaun Marsh. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Amir.

  • 33.4 - OUT! Bowled. Shaheen Afridi to Glenn Maxwell. Length ball, to leg no foot movement driving, missed to. Timber, off stump is flattened and Maxwell is sent on his way back to the dressing room. Shaheen Afridi roars in delight and salutes the large Pakistan contingent in the stands. The full length at high speed has done the trick, Maxwell's feet went nowhere and the bat swished at thin air. A flashy cameo but nothing more.

  • 33.3 - Shaheen Afridi to Glenn Maxwell. Half volley, off stump no foot movement driving, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Hafeez.

  • 33.2 - Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Amir.

  • 33.1 - FOUR! Shaheen Afridi to David Warner. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, bottom edge past third man for 4 runs. Edged fine, Warner won't mind how they come as he approaches three figures. A wry smile from the bowler, he knows that wasn't what the batsman intended but it was a poor delivery all the same.

  • 32.6 - SIX! Mohammad Hafeez to Glenn Maxwell. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Beautiful batting, just a slight extension of the hands through this delivery and the ball soars all the way for six.

    Australia are in a very healthy position as the players take drinks under cloudy skies.

  • 32.5 - FOUR! Mohammad Hafeez to Glenn Maxwell. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Another lusty blow, four more for Maxwell as he finds the boundary with contempt.

  • 32.4 - Mohammad Hafeez to David Warner. Off break length ball, off stump down the track driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Riaz.

  • 32.3 - Mohammad Hafeez to David Warner. Off break half volley, down leg side on the front foot pushing, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Hafeez.

  • 32.2 - Mohammad Hafeez to Glenn Maxwell. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 1 run, fielded by Riaz.

  • 32.1 - FOUR! Mohammad Hafeez to Glenn Maxwell. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Too short, easy pickings for Maxwell to rock back deep in the crease and smoke his first boundary.

  • 31.6 - Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Malik.

  • 31.5 - Shoaib Malik to Glenn Maxwell. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Ali.

  • 27.6 - Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot glancing, to short fine leg for 2 runs, overthrow by Riaz.

  • 27.5 - FREE HIT. SIX! Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Warner makes full use of the free hit with a devastating slap over long on. This is carnage, Australia are ruthless in taking advantage of anything loose.

  • 27.5 - No ball Shoaib Malik to Steven Smith. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Hafeez.

  • 27.4 - Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by ul-Haq.

  • 27.3 - FOUR! Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Shadab Khan is on the field as a sub and is usually excellent at saving runs, however a tame piece of work means Warner picks up his ninth four of the day. Pakistan look very flat.

  • 27.2 - Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, shy attempt by Azam.

  • 27.1 - Shoaib Malik to David Warner. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Malik.

  • 24.6 - Mohammad Amir to David Warner. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 24.5 - APPEAL! Mohammad Amir to David Warner. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump down the track working, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed, appeal made for L.B.W. Hopeful appeal, Sarfaraz doesn't look confident but asks for the review anyway. It's a waste though, impact was a long way outside off stump, something which seemed obvious from the start.

  • 24.4 - Mohammad Amir to Steven Smith. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by ul-Haq.

  • 24.3 - Mohammad Amir to David Warner. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to short mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Amir.

  • 24.2 - Mohammad Amir to David Warner. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Amir.

  • 23.6 - Hassan Ali to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot shoulders arms, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 23.5 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Boundaries are flowing now, Smith joins the party with a flowing drive that zips quickly to the rope. Pakistan really need someone to support Amir, at the moment it's a one man show with the ball making it far too easy for Australia.

  • 23.4 - Hassan Ali to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, for no runs, fielded by Ali.

  • 23.3 - Hassan Ali to David Warner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep square leg for 1 run, fielded by Zaman.

  • 23.3 - Wide Hassan Ali to David Warner. Length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Ahmed.

  • 23.2 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to David Warner. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Another high quality stroke, but the bowler hasn't learned from the error he made previous delivery. It's far too full again and easy pickings for Warner to thread the gap at extra cover.

  • 23.1 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to David Warner. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Fantastic shot, leaning into the full delivery and showing the face of the bat to the ball. All of a sudden the pressure on the batsmen is gone.

  • 22.1 - OUT! Caught. Mohammad Amir to Aaron Finch. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Hafeez. There's the breakthrough, finally some respite for Pakistan as Amir strikes upon his return to the attack. Sarfaraz was getting pretty desperate so turned back to the man who bowled a really impressive opening spell, Amir duly provided the moment his skipper needed. Finch was looking to continue dominating but the cross-seam delivery seemed to stick in the pitch slightly and the experienced Hafeez settled under the high ball calmly.

  • 21.6 - FOUR! Hassan Ali to David Warner. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Creamed square, no chance for the sweeper so Warner moves to fifty. This opening partnership is providing Australia with a fantastic platform.

  • 20.4 - SIX! Mohammad Hafeez to Aaron Finch. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Another maximum, Finch has taken a real liking to Hafeez and Pakistan are under serious pressure now.

  • 20.3 - SIX! Mohammad Hafeez to Aaron Finch. Off break length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

  • 16.3 - FOUR! Mohammad Hafeez to Aaron Finch. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Brutal force, the ball is back past the bowler before he can move a muscle. That is Finch at his destructive best.

  • 16.2 - Mohammad Hafeez to Aaron Finch. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge to short third man for no runs, dropped catch by Ahmed, fielded by Afridi. A sharp chance goes begging, Sarfaraz didn't have time to react to the deflection. Things aren't quite going Pakistan's way at the moment.

  • 15.6 - FOUR! Shaheen Afridi to Aaron Finch. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot pushing, well timed past long on for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Malik. A sloppy piece of fielding spoils the over, that will really annoy the bowler.

  • 15.3 - APPEAL! Shaheen Afridi to Aaron Finch. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, hit pad to second slip for no runs, fielded by Ali, appeal made for L.B.W. Half-hearted appeal, the bowler was the only one really interested there.

  • 14.2 - APPEAL! Wahab Riaz to Aaron Finch. Length ball, to leg on the back foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Azam, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge shout, Sarfaraz takes some convincing and eventually signals for a review. Wahab was the one who really pushed for the review to be taken and you can see why, it pitched in line and was trimming the bails according to ball tracking, however not quite enough to be overturned. Finch survives.

  • 14.1 - Wahab Riaz to Aaron Finch. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Zaman.

  • 12.5 - FOUR! Wahab Riaz to Aaron Finch. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Gloved past fine leg for 4 runs. Finch adds insult to injury by helping the next delivery after being dropped to the fence. Wahab does not look impressed at all, he is starting to work up some serious pace.

  • 12.4 - FOUR! Wahab Riaz to Aaron Finch. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Ali, mis-fielded by Ali. Asif Ali puts down a sitter, that's as easy as they come in the slips. Finch was hanging back looking to flay the ball square and a little bit of nip from the deck caused it to fly off the edge. Luck for Australia.
