    OVER 2 AUS 11/0 (WATSON 6 WARNER 5): More spin in the shape of Raza Hasan's slow left-arm. Great start for the kid - four dots - but Watson forces a quicker one through point for four

  •  

    OVER 1 AUS 7/0 (WATSON 2 WARNER 5): Hafeez takes the first over himself and drops horribly short to Warner, who pulls for four. Otherwise respectable, but Pakistan could do with an early wicket or two

  •  

    END OF INNINGS: Mohammad Hafeez wanted at least 150 and he so nearly got it, but it was a stop-start effort from Pakistan. All Group Two permutations still open, but you'd have to think Australia are through and it's two from the other three now. Confirmation coming through that, no matter the result, Australia will qualify if they score 112

  •  

    OVER 20 PAKISTAN 149/6 (U AKMAL 9 MALIK 4): WICKET! Afridi doesn't do sighters at the most circumspect of times, and he wallops Starc for a straight four before losing his leg stump next ball. Hello and goodbye. Great effort from Starc, who finishes with 3-20

  •  

    OVER 19 PAKISTAN 140/5 (U AKMAL 9 AFRIDI 0): WICKET! Razzaq's has been an erratic innings, and now it's over. He makes room to clump Cummins for four over cover but follows up with a complete miscue to Watson running back from point. Umar Akmal's thick edge runs for four to redress the balance a little with one left to bowl

  •  

    OVER 18 PAKISTAN 130/4 (U AKMAL 4 RAZZAQ 17): Watson bowls out, and in decent style too as a couple of dots help restrict Pakistan to six, Umar Akmal surviving a decent run-out chance along the way

  •  

    OVER 17 PAKISTAN 123/4 (U AKMAL 1 RAZZAQ 14): Game comeback from Cummins after the bit of clout he took earlier. Razzaq's ragged and - twice - almost run out, but he times one last ball and sends it over the long-off rope for six

  •  

    OVER 16 PAKISTAN 114/4 (U AKMAL 0 RAZZAQ 6): WICKET! Starc's second spell, like his first, begins with a wicket as Kamran Akmal lashes a wide half-volley straight to cover. Razzaq doesn't muck about, pulling his second ball for four, but it's Australia's over

  •  

    OVER 15 PAKISTAN 108/3 (K AKMAL 32 U AKMAL 0): Doherty, bowling out, opens with a wide and serves up a succession of low full tosses which go unpunished. WICKET! Jamshed (55) then takes aim at a length ball and picks out long-on. Australia needed that

  •  

    OVER 14 PAKISTAN 103/2 (JAMSHED 52 K AKMAL 31): Hogg has bowled decently for little reward, and Jamshed gets away with an uppish skew into the off side. No messing two balls later, though, a flat-batted four over Hogg's head bringing up his 50 from 41. Akmal then slog-sweeps for six and Pakistan are into three figures

  •  

    OVER 13 PAKISTAN 89/2 (JAMSHED 46 K AKMAL 23): Bailey asks Watson to stop the rot but Jamshed's eye is in and he lofts the golden boy for a straight four. Akmal's approach is a bit more primitive, but he's ticking along nicely too

  •  

    OVER 12 PAKISTAN 79/2 (JAMSHED 41 K AKMAL 19): Doherty on, Jamshed on one knee, ball miles over the midwicket fence. the 50 partnership is up off 36 later in the over, and that's 38 off the last four

  •  

    OVER 11 PAKISTAN 70/2 (JAMSHED 32 K AKMAL 19): Jamshed's been ultra-cautious, but he picks up one back of a length from Cummins and pulls a first maximum of the innings. Akmal's bristling now, to boot, Pakistan upping the aggression

  •  

    OVER 10 PAKISTAN 60/2 (JAMSHED 25 K AKMAL 16): That's more like it from Akmal, nimble footwork and a thud to the cover fence bringing up 50. An awful moment then for Maxwell, who follows up his earlier dropped catch by allowing a Jamshed trickler through his grasp for four more. Hogg ain't happy

  •  

    OVER 9 PAKISTAN 49/2 (JAMSHED 20 K AKMAL 10): Spin at both ends as Doherty returns, surely expecting more stick than he gets. Eight milked off the over, in fairness, but it's all lacking a little urgency

  •  

    OVER 8 PAKISTAN 41/2 (JAMSHED 16 K AKMAL 6): Old man Hogg into the attack with his chinamen. Touch of timidity about Pakistan, just now, as Jamshed is happy to clip a waist-high gift for one. Another over drifts by almost unnoticed

  •  

    OVER 7 PAKISTAN 37/2 (JAMSHED 14 K AKMAL 4): Maxwell sends down an over of neither-her-nor-there off-spin, Pakistan trot singles, not much else to add

  •  

    OVER 6 PAKISTAN 31/2 (JAMSHED 11 K AKMAL 1): WICKET! Dearie me, no wonder Watson is stockpiling man-of-the-match baubles if this is the help he gets. Nazir toes a mouth-watering full toss to Bailey at mid-off, and there's just three off the over. Poor powerplay - Pakistan's lowest of the tournament

  •  

    OVER 5 PAKISTAN 28/1 (NAZIR 14 JAMSHED 9): Bailey continues to mix it up, but this is a gamble he doesn't land as Cummins struggles with his line. Nazir clips four off his pads and rocks back, Viv Richards-style, to club another through cover

  •  

    OVER 4 PAKISTAN 15/1 (NAZIR 3 JAMSHED 8): Starc on the money again, and only a thin inside edge saves Nazir from a close lbw call. Pitch looks sluggish and the powerplay's going Australia's way

  •  

    OVER 3 PAKISTAN 12/1 (NAZIR 1 JAMSHED 7): Watson's on for Doherty and gets away with a floaty full toss first ball. The rest is spot on until Jamshed seizes on a bit of width and belts four through cover

  •  

    OVER 2 PAKISTAN 8/1 (NAZIR 1 JAMSHED 3): WICKET! Dream start for Starc, who swings one back into Hafeez's pads first up and raps the Pakistan captain right in front. Easy call for the umpire. DROP! Jamshed should go second ball, too, but a simple slip chance is spilled by Maxwell

  •  

    OVER 1 PAKISTAN 5/0 (HAFEEZ 4 NAZIR 1): Doherty gets thrown the cherry and is pretty much on the button from the first ball. Nazir makes his intentions plain with a big heave - lucky to get away with an ugly miscue

  •  

    ANTHEMS Pakistan's sombre yet stirring number takes it on Duckworth/Lewis from Advance Australia Fair - admittedly belted out with gusto by the Aussie players. Anyway, the pre-match rituals are out of the way and it's on with the show...

  •  

    TOSS George Bailey calls correctly and opts to put Pakistan in after naming an unchanged team. Pakistan bring in Abdul Razzaq for Yasir Arafat, and Mohammad Hafeez reckons anything better than 150 would be a decent target. We'll see...
