Commentary

  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, huge, relentless appeal as Shafiq shoulders arms! Clarke and Haddin are in conversation, wondering about the review. This was tossed up quite nicely and rips in quite handsomely too. Shafiq had lunged forward and was hit low enough too. He was padding up and this looks mighty close. Hawk Eye says it would clip off stump, and so will be umpire's call
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, runs down the track and pushes the ball back down the pitch
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, another big appeal as Shafiq gets forward to try and block, well that was what he was feigning to do. This was flighted outside off and rips in quite smartly. Australia appeal thinking he was pulling out if his stroke. That is why Clarke goes for a review. The third umpire decides he was playing a shot, and it did seem like that too, he was pulling the bat back after the fact. Trying to protect himself from getting beaten
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 2 runs, rocks back to a shortish ball and cracks it through the covers and returns for two
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, tossed up outside off and this time he lunges forward and pushes through the covers
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, again, this off stump has been so resilient today! Lyon gets it to pitch miles outside off and Shafiq was loaded up to leave it quite comfortably. But then it jags back in alarmingly and misses the stumps by a whisker. David Warner is nearly eating his baggy green in disbelief
  , Marsh to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, good length ball on off stump, Misbah is across to it and turns it to midwicket
  , Marsh to Misbah-ul-Haq, 2 runs, full and tailing in, Misbah flicks it away through to deep square leg for a couple
  , Marsh to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, banged in short, but it's outside off and it;s Misbah. No way is he going to play at those
  , Marsh to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, good length ball on and around off stump, defended into the leg side
  , Marsh to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, back of a length and outside off, doesn't need to play
  , Marsh to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, gets this good length ball to straighten on middle and off, soldily defended
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, goes back and works it with the turn behind square leg
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, lovely flighted delivery on and around off stump, Misbah lunges forward to block
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 1 run, waits on the turn off a good length ball and picks it away to the left of leg slip
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, FOUR, same, quick shortish ball on middle and leg. But Shafiq puts a little more behind the shot and cracks it through midwicket. Forces it away with lovely wristwork
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, goes back to a flatter, good length ball and Misbah tucks it away to the left of leg slip
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, tossed up outside off, Misbah has lunged forward to nudge it towards midwicket. Turns a little too much for it and is struck on the front pad. Impact was outside off though and ruins the appeal
  , Marsh to Asad Shafiq, no run, full on middle, Shafiq blocks with authority
  , Marsh to Asad Shafiq, no run, shortish on off stump, defended off the back foot
  , Marsh to Asad Shafiq, no run, length ball outside off, doesn't need to play
  , Marsh to Asad Shafiq, no run, full on off stump, pushed back at the bowler
  , Marsh to Asad Shafiq, no run, back of a length and outside off, Shafiq lets it go and walks across to square leg to compose himself
  , Marsh to Asad Shafiq, no run, full on middle, Shafiq is nicely behind it
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, 2 byes, looped up around off stump, he goes for a sweep but mistimes it. So much that he misses the shot. Couple of byes though
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, 1 run, nips down the track and gets himself in trouble as he tries to turn this good length ball behind square leg and it falls just short of the man there
  , Lyon to Asad Shafiq, no run, good length ball ducks in off a good length and strikes him on the front pad. Some dust popping up off the turf from this delivery. Too much turn though
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, 3 leg byes, no leg slip, and Misbah has tickled the ball around the corner for three runs. No need for Australia to have their hands on their heads though, no bat involved
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, 2 runs, tossed up outside off, Misbah sweeps along the ground to deep square leg
  , Lyon to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, it does and he cramps Misbah for room even as he was backing away to try and cut. Pushed into the covers.
