Commentary

  , Lyon to Azhar Ali, no run, tossed up on middle and leg, defended
  , Lyon to Azhar Ali, 2 runs, a little shortish and Azhar takes advantage of it by getting back and across and letting it run off his horizontal blade towards third man. Neat stroke to bring up Pakistan's fifty
  , Lyon to Azhar Ali, no run, gets back in front of all three stumps and blocks a flatter ball on off
  , Lyon to Azhar Ali, no run, a little turn, a little bounce and Azhar tries to get inside the line and work it away behind square leg. Misses but Haddin does well behind the stumps
  , Lyon to Azhar Ali, no run, flighted on and around off stump, defended
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, 1 run, tossed up on leg stump, tucked away past short leg
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, did that carry? Yes! Rogers was the man at cover point and he had to dive to his left to try and get under this one. Doesn't work out though. This was another fuller ball luring Azhar outside his off stump. He was quite tight all this while, but can't help himself this time. Goes for a lazy drive and almost succumbs
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, good ol double bluff as he fires a fuller ball outside off, Azhar steps forward and crunches it into the covers
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, 146kph, full and wide of off stump again, Azhar won't play at it
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, fuller and slanted across the right-hander at 144 kph, isn't sucked in. Marais Erasmus steps in to keep Johnson's chirping in check
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, an encore of the short ball, on middle and leg this time. Azhar refuses to be lured into this battle
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, 148 kph. banged in short on middle and off, Azhar sinks beneath it. Big, burly fast bowler chirps. Azhar doesn't pay any mind
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, loopy delivery outside off and Younis lunges forward to defend it. That's three maidens in a row
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, slower through the air and on off stump, blocked off the back foot
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, strays a little too straight but short leg helps him out by preventing a flick from going past him
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, lovely flight from Lyon as he targets off stump this time, defended well though
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, tossed up on middle and leg stump, Younis turns it away past short leg
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, strays on the pads and Younis tries to flick it away, doesn't succeed in timing his shot
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, 145kph shortish on off stump, Azhar gets behind it confidently
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, good length ball at 144 kph, but it was slanted away from the right-hander and is easily left alone
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, oooh, that's the yorker again. Wide of off stump and Azhar gets his bat down in time. But he wasn't out of trouble yet. The ball ricochets back and almost finds his stumps
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, 140kph, back of a length and a shade outside off, Azhar covers it well. Wonder if Johnson is having a problem with his front-foot landing area. Keeps tending to it every time he comes back
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, 140kph, fullish on leg stump, Azhar blocks with bat in front of pad
  , Johnson to Azhar Ali, no run, 141kph, good length ball just outside off, Azhar shoulders arms
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, tossed up outside off to invite the drive, Younis' footwork is strong again as he reaches the pitch and pushes to cover
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, capably keeps out a good length ball on off stump
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, presents his bat in front of pad to a good length ball on leg stump
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, goes back to a slightly shorter ball and blocks under his eyes
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, gets forward to block a flighted ball outside off
  , Lyon to Younis Khan, no run, a little turn from Lyon as he loops the ball up on off stump, Younis goes back and taps it to short leg
