  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 1 run, tossed up outside off, Shafiq laps it to the deep fine leg and off come the bails

  , Lyon to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, nicely flighed outside off, defended calmly

  , Lyon to Sarfraz Ahmed, 2 runs, jumps down and Lyon slides in a quicker ball down the leg side. Has to adjust, splay his legs to cover the line of the ball and flick it through the midwicket region
  , Johnson to Asad Shafiq, no run, back of a length and outside off, Shafiq is more confident leaving this
  , Johnson to Asad Shafiq, no run, back of a length and angled in at off stump, Shafiq decides to leave rather late. Good decision

  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 1 run, nips down the track and pushes a flighted ball outside off down to long-on
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 2 runs, backs away and cuts a short ball from off stump, it has enough on it to get him the couple he needs for a fifty. It's been a bright innings, especially this morning. He's been crucial in keeping the spinners at bat
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, stays back and taps a length ball into the midwicket region
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, tossed up outside off, Shafiq defends with bat and pad close
  , Lyon to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, runs at Lyon again, if a little outside the line which is why he gets an inside edge towards mid-on
  , Lyon to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, jumps down the track and hammers a flighted ball to the right of mid-on. He's motoring along, and since the last over he has not looked hurried

  , Johnson to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, full and slanted across Sarfraz, doesn't need to play at it
  , Johnson to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, he's lured into chasing a back of a length delivery outside off, but he has perfect control over it somehow. Chops it on top of its bounce and collects a boundary to third man. Lovely timing
  , Johnson to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, 140kph, rises up with a short ball on off stump and blunts it towards point. That's nicely done. Far more compact
  , Johnson to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, back of a length and a shade outside off, Sarfraz looks to ride it to third man but David Warner does well at gully, diving to his left
  , Johnson to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, 137kph, full and wide outside off, Sarfraz is eager as ever as he swishes and misses. No feet.

  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, tossed up outside off, Shafiq defends into the off side

  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 2 runs, this rips in from outside off, but Shafiq has managed it quite well. Rolls his wrists on top of the chop towards third man
