Over 4.4 Mitchell Starc to Sarfraz Ahmed,  out Caught by Watson!! On a short of length, the batsman made the mistake of playing with an open face and just guided that, Watto moved smartly and takes it well. Gets up and celebrates by throwing the ball away. Sarfraz Ahmed c Watson b Starc 10(16)

Over 5.1 J Hazlewood to Ahmed Shehzad,  out Caught by Clarke!! On a good length and outside off, Ahmed Shehzad went for an expansive drive on-the-up, played away from his body and edged it, it went low to Clarke at 2nd slip who took a regulation take. Ahmed Shehzad c Clarke b Hazlewood 5(13)

Over 23.2 GJ Maxwell to Misbah-ul-Haq, out Caught by Finch!! It was outside off, Misbah looked for another biggie, but top-edged the slog sweep and Finch running around from deep mid-wicket has taken a good catch. Misbah c Finch b Maxwell 34(59) 

Over 26.4 MG Johnson to Haris Sohail,  out Caught by Haddin!! It was well outside off and going further away, Sohail's feet went nowhere as he went for a flashy drive, the nick went to Haddin's left who pouched it. Johnson delighted. Sohail c Haddin b Johnson 41(57)

Over 29.1 GJ Maxwell to Umar Akmal,  out Caught by Finch!! Akmal rocked back to pull and couldn't have placed it any better, if he had tried to. Finch hangs on, clutching the ball to his chest. It came in flat and Finch was unsighted for a moment, but takes a good catch. U Akmal c Finch b Maxwell 20(25)

Over 33.6 J Hazlewood to Shahid Afridi, out Caught by Finch!! Hazlewood pumps his fist as Afridi throws it away. Poor cricketing sense from Afridi, he wanted to hit every ball out of the park and Finch takes a good catch above his head at deep square leg. Afridi c Finch b Hazlewood 23(15) 

Over 41.3 J Hazlewood to Sohaib Maqsood, out Caught by Johnson!!  Full delivery just outside off, Maqsood stays leg-side of the ball, spots that there is no one manning the sweeper cover fence, looks to slice it over the infield, can't get it over cover-point, Johnson takes a good juggling catch.. Maqsood c Johnson b Hazlewood 29(44) 

Over 42.2 Mitchell Starc to Wahab Riaz, out Caught by Haddin!! After numerous attempts to nick one, Riaz finally manages to achieve the inevitable. Fullish and just outside off, Riaz backs away to the leg-side, tries to go go big, the outside edge flies to the right of Haddin and he takes it well. Riaz c Haddin b Starc 16(22) 

Over 43.6 J Hazlewood to Sohail Khan, out Caught by Haddin!! A nothing shot from Sohail. Length delivery on off, Sohail swings it wildly, the ball skies towards point, Haddin called for it, moved to his right and completes the catch. Sohail Khan c Haddin b Hazlewood 4(5)

Over 49.5 James Faulkner to Ehsan Adil, out Caught by Starc!! It was short and just outside off, Adil fetches it from there, top-edges the pull towards long leg, Starc runs to his right, goes down quickly to ground and takes a good low catch. Ehsan Adil c Starc b Faulkner 15(22)
