    4.1 Big Billy has bounced out Fakhar. The plan has worked. Banged in short and angling away outside off at 148.4ks - pace like fire - the opener is hurried into a hook against the angle. He skies it to short cover off a top edge 32/1
    not out
    13.5 dragged short, Hafeez goes for the pull but ends up mistiming it towards long-on, a bit of top edge too and McDermott takes a comfortable catch 105/2
    14.4 plumb. Length ball, pitched around middle, Asif went back to work it on the leg side, misses and gets rapped on the pads right in front of the stumps 110/3
    16.4 down the track this time and looks to go over long-on. It was a slower ball which meant Hussain didn't get the required distance and Finch leapt at the long-on to take a good catch 130/4
    16.5 and gone! Two in two for Tye. Sharp catch by Maxwell at extra cover. It was a length ball and Faheem ended up hitting it in the air, straight to Maxwell 130/5
    17.2 lbw but reviewed straightaway by Sarfraz. It was a length ball, Sarfraz moved across to work it on the leg side, misses and gets hit just over the knee-roll. There is no bat involved and it's just clipping the leg-stump bail. The original call stays as is it as Pakistan lose their sixth wicket 131/6
    17.5 short of length and Shadab goes for a pull, but ends up skying it towards fine leg where McDermott settles under it take his second catch of the innings 133/7
    18.1 and fetches a first-ball duck. It was floated outside off, Imad looked to hit it over extra cover but couldn't clear Finch. Eight down Pakistan now 133/8

    0.3 Finch steps away outside leg again, Imad hits the stumps and marks his return to international cricket. The length was short enough for the cut, but the ball drifts back in and finishes on middle. Can't chop it away from there. Finch does not touch it and Imad brings out his CR7 celebration. Welcome back, Imad 0/1
    0.6 Another wicket for Imad. Another CR7 celebration. Pushed through outside off and angling away from around the wicket, catches Short in the crease. He looks to force it away but loses his shape this time and drags it back onto the stumps via a thick inside edge. What a return for Imad 5/2
    5.2 Ashraf rattles the off stump and Abu Dhabi raises itself to a big roar. Full and angling in at off, Lynn plays for the angle but the ball straightens away late to knock back the off stump 22/6
    3.3 What have you done, Maxwell? No show from the Big Show. He jumps away outside leg, exposes all his stumps. Faheem angles a full ball in and pegs back the middle stump as the batsman does not lay bat onto it. Australia three down inside four overs 16/3
    3.5 just short of a good length and outside off, punched up to mid-off. Fakhar swoops down on the ball and under-arms it onto the stumps at the non-striker's end. McDermott chanced the single, dived full length, but is short when the bail is off the groove. Make it four down inside four overs. The TV umpires takes his time before ruling the batsman out. McDermott throws his head back in despair 16/4
    4.6 Australia's procession continues. Fuller than a good length and angling away outside off from around the wicket, Carey is pinned to the crease as feathers it behind. Time for the Cristiano Ronaldo celebration again 22/5
    12.4 Hasan gets his man! Another off-cutter, pitching around off stump. Agar was looking to force it away, gets an outside edge and Sarfraz does the rest 60/7
    16.5 googly eventually does the trick. Coulter-Nile cleared his front leg and looked to smashed it hard over long-on, so hard that the bat comes off his hands, he ends up missing the ball and the sound of timber seals the game for Pakistan 89/10
    14.3 slower one, Zampa looks to go aerial, gets more height than distance but Hasan Ali almost made a mess of it there. Misjudged it completely at long-on as he came in charging, had to undo his steps in the ends and pedal back, eventually he takes it overhead, tumbling backwards 72/8
    14.6 length ball, angling in from around the wicket, the batsman fails to get his bat on it and the middle stumps is lying flat on the ground. Pakistan one wicket away 78/9
