Commentary (Pakistan innings)

So that completes our formalities for this match. The series has become more interesting now and Pakistan have bounced back hard after having a nightmarish tour so far. They would look to repeat the tale of MCG but they would have to deal against a charged up Australian side. The third ODI is set to take place at the WACA, Perth on 19th of January at 0850 IST (0320 GMT). We have a cracker of a contest on our hands, do join us for that. Meanwhile, do tune in for the India and England match that is going on. Till then, adios and take care!

Pakistan skipper and Man of the Match, Mohammad Hafeez feels that the boys did a great job. Adds that their batsmen played well as the ball was not coming on to the bat and the bowlers did the job too. Adds that Malik bowled well and he is an experienced player. He finished it in the end. Mentions that they love the Pakistani crowd and they love them too. Says that they have won this for Pakistan.

Australia skipper, Steven Smith says they were below par with the bat in today's game, just like in the first game as well. Adds that had it not been for Matthew Wade who bailed them out of trouble, they would have been in some serious trouble (In the first game). States that they lost wickets in clumps and they need to give themselves a better chance. Acknowledges that they struggled against the Pakistan spinners to play their natural game and build partnerships, which is something they would like to change in the next match. Admits that they tried their best till the end and never stopped believing, but Pakistan were too good for them on the day. Feels that his side was probably 40 runs short and that put too much pressure on the bowlers. Credits his bowlers for bowling the way they performed and kept the pressure on the opposition. (On Chris Lynn's fitness) Says that they will have to wait and see to assess whether he will travel with the squad to Perth. He ends by saying that he hopes to get a nice, bouncy wicket at Perth and that they can do well there.

Shoaib Malik played a confident knock down the order and settled the nerves after the tourists lost Azam and Hafeez in quick succession. Starc, Faulkner and Hazlewood were great with the ball but is was a too low target to defend. Earlier, Steven Smith was the only one who played a responsible knock and scored a fighting half century for the home side. The Pakistani bowlers were right on the money and strangled the Aussie batsmen to a low total. Junaid Khan and Mohammad Amir were terrific with the ball for the visitors and gave their batters a real shot at victory. In the end, they backed the effort of their bowlers to get to glory.

That's it, the long wait for Pakistan comes to an end. They have broken the drought after almost 12 years and have cruised to a comfortable victory against Australia as they have leveled the series 1-1. The steady and crucial 68-run opening stand between Sharjeel and Hafeez set it up nicely for the visitors and the rest cashed in to see them through at the end. Hafeez played a terrific knock today and led by example to score a patient 72. The hosts would be ruing the fact that they dropped him for a duck and the Professor made them pay big time.

47.5 T Head to U Akmal, Wide! A rather anti-climatic way to win but Pakistan will take it nevertheless. Head from around the wicket darts it down the leg side, Umar Akmal just leaves it alone. So with that, PAKISTAN WIN THIS MATCH BY 6 WICKETS! 221/4

47.4 T Head to U Akmal, FOUR! THEY'RE ALMOST HOME! Full toss on off, Umar Akmal hammers his back down the ground for a boundary. Almost took off his partner's head with that but the two of them are all smiles anyway. Just one run needed to win now. 220/4

45.6 T Head to S Malik, Almost a catch. Would have been a difficult one to take. Shoaib Malik pulls this off his back foot past the diving mid-wicket fielder. David Warner out in the deep does well to comes across and cut it off with a dive. Two runs are taken. 211/4

45.5 T Head to U Akmal, Finds the gap this time. Akmal goes back to this flat and short delivery to whip it in front of square. A single taken. 209/4

44.6 J Faulkner to S Malik, Shoaib Malik has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 208/4

44.4 J Faulkner to U Akmal, FOUR! Just banged that. Went dead straight and executed it extremely well. Overpitched outside off, Umar Akmal drives it aerially back down and sends it one bounce across the long off boundary. 207/4

44.3 J Faulkner to U Akmal, Brings his bat ahead of his pad and plays it back down the track. 203/4

44.2 J Faulkner to U Akmal, Another solid defense. Akmal stands his ground and keeps it out. 203/4

43.6 M Marsh to S Malik, Full on middle and leg, driven to mid on for no run. Pakistan need 18 in 36. 203/4

43.5 M Marsh to S Malik, FOUR! WHAT. A. SHOT. Hit that with absolute disdain, didn't he? Back of a length around off, Malik gets on top of the bounce and thumps the pull over mid-wicket to send it across the fence. 203/4

43.4 M Marsh to S Malik, Full outside off, Malik with that straight blade again. Drives it back down to mid off. 199/4

43.3 M Marsh to U Akmal, Good shot. Gets it in the gap nicely, the placement was fine. Length ball outside off, Umar Akmal cuts it down on the ground on the off side. It pierces the gap in the covers and three runs are taken. 199/4

43.2 M Marsh to U Akmal, Back of a length on off, Akmal hangs back, hops and works it in front of mid-wicket. 196/4

43.1 M Marsh to S Malik, Short of a length angling in, easily tucked down to fine leg by Shoaib Malik. One run taken. 196/4

42.6 M Starc to U Akmal, Comes from around the wicket for the final ball of the over, it's speared full outside off, Umar Akmal looks to push it from inside the line but is beaten past his outside edge. That's the end of Starc's stint with the ball. 195/4

Umar Akmal comes out to bat.

42.5 M Starc to A Shafiq, OUT! That's an edge which is taken! A needless shot from Asad Shafiq, was no need to go after it. Starc fires it full and well outside off, Shafiq goes after it still for some reason and gets a nick on it. Easy take for Matthew Wade behind the stumps who makes no mistake in gobbling it up. Another 26 runs needed from 43 balls. 195/4

42.1 M Starc to A Shafiq, Not out! Full ball aimed at the base of off stump, Shafiq drives it towards mid-wicket and sets off. Hazlewood gets a direct hit at the bowler's end as Shafiq slides his bat in. It goes upstairs and replays show that Asad was well in. Good running. 192/3

We are back for Pakistan's reply with the bat. It will be important for them to get off to a good start. Can they hold their nerves and pull this chase off or will they once again crumble under pressure? The hosts have a penetrative attack and it will surely test them. Mohammad Hafeez and Sharjeel Khan to open the innings. Mitchell Starc with the new ball. Here we go...

A run out appeal against Asad Shafiq is referred upstairs by the umpire.

41.6 M Marsh to S Malik, Shoaib Malik has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 30 more runs needed for Pakistan to win off 48 balls. 191/3

41.6 M Marsh to S Malik, Wide! Short and going down leg, Malik looks to go after it but can't reach it. Wide called. 191/3

41.5 M Marsh to S Malik, Fractionally fuller in length, around the off stump, it's defended off the front foot and into the track. 190/3

41.4 M Marsh to S Malik, Shortish delivery pitched outside off, Malik looks to slash it hard towards third man but cannot make any contact. 190/3

41.4 M Marsh to S Malik, Wide! Mitchell Marsh brings out the short one and pounds the deck hard, but it's too high for the umpire's liking so he signals it as a wide. 190/3

41.3 M Marsh to A Shafiq, Angles it into the body, Shafiq works it round the corner and takes a run. 189/3

41.2 M Marsh to A Shafiq, Stays within his crease and does well to keep it out. 188/3

41.1 M Marsh to S Malik, Back of a length outside off, Malik opens the face and runs it down to third man for an easy single. 188/3

40.6 M Starc to A Shafiq, Yorker outside off, Asad jams it down by sticking his bat out to it. 187/3

40.5 M Starc to A Shafiq, Slants across a length ball outside off, left alone. 187/3

40.4 M Starc to A Shafiq, A bit of a mishap from David Warner and that allows the batsmen to take the extra run. Shafiq pushes this towards mid off and the ball goes off Warner's hand as he dives to stop it. Two runs taken. 187/3

40.3 M Starc to S Malik, Fuller on the stumps, it's worked in front of mid-wicket for a quick single. 185/3

40.2 M Starc to S Malik, Fuller length ball from Mitchell Starc, Malik defends it off the front foot. 184/3

40.1 M Starc to A Shafiq, Back of a length on the hips, it's glanced down to fine leg for a single. 184/3

Powerplay 3 has been signalled by the umpire. Meanwhile, Mitchell Starc comes back to bowl.

39.6 M Marsh to S Malik, Fullish on off, dropped in front of covers off the front foot. 38 needed off 60. 183/3

39.5 M Marsh to S Malik, FOUR! That has been hit beautifully. Shots don't get any better than that. Marsh overpitches it on middle and off, Shoaib Malik leans into the drive and hits it right back down the ground. That will race away to the boundary line. 183/3

39.4 M Marsh to S Malik, Walks a step across to this length delivery and meets it with a straight blade. 179/3

39.3 M Marsh to S Malik, Similar delivery, Malik pushes it back out on the off side. 179/3

39.2 M Marsh to S Malik, Fuller around off, defended off the front foot. 179/3

39.1 M Marsh to S Malik, FOUR! Very good shot! That should relieve some pressure. Short and wide outside off, enough room for Malik to free his arms and he does so. Slashes it over point and sends it across the ropes for a boundary. 179/3

Mitchell Marsh is back on.

38.6 J Hazlewood to S Malik, Comfortably done. Malik runs this down to third man rather easily and will retain strike. Pakistan need 46 more from 66 balls. 175/3

38.5 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Streaky runs. Asad Shafiq leans ahead and reaches out to play at it. Gets a thick edge which runs down to third man. A run taken. 174/3

38.4 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Fuller length ball around off, punched straight to David Warner at wide mid off. 173/3

38.3 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Jags back in a touch after hitting the deck, catches the inside edge of Shafiq's bat and hits him on the thigh pad. 173/3

38.2 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Stays right behind the line of the delivery and keeps it out rather solidly. 173/3

38.1 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Loud shout for a leg before but that's turned down. Rightly so, it was always going down leg. Angles back in and catches Asad Shafiq on the front pad. 173/3

37.6 Pat Cummins to A Shafiq, Full and coming in on the pads, Shafiq flicks it through backward square leg. Will get three runs for it. 48 needed off 72 to win. 173/3

37.5 Pat Cummins to S Malik, ALMOST DRAGGED IT BACK ON! Length ball around off, Shoaib Malik looks to cut it on the off side but is cramped for room and gets an inside edge which goes just past the leg stump. It goes down to fine leg and a single is taken. 170/3

37.4 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Works this away on the leg side for a couple of good runs. 169/3

37.3 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Big swing and a big miss! Length ball outside off, Malik flashes his bat hard at this but fails to make any connection. 167/3

37.2 Pat Cummins to S Malik, NOT OUT! A waste of a review in hindsight, really. It was always missing the stumps. Although, it's understandable, the desperation for a wicket. Angles in a back of a length delivery from around off, it catches Malik on the pads and the Aussies go up for a leg before appeal. The decision goes upstairs as Steven Smith decides to review it. Replays show that height was an issue. Tough luck, Steven. 167/3

Australia have taken a review against Malik. It is regarding an LBW decision. Looked like height was a factor there.

37.1 Pat Cummins to A Shafiq, Taps this length delivery to covers and takes a quick single. 167/3

36.6 J Hazlewood to S Malik, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 166/3

36.5 J Hazlewood to S Malik, Bit fuller in length around off, kept out off the front foot and into the track. 166/3

36.4 J Hazlewood to S Malik, SIX! OH SHOAIB MALIK, YOU BEAUTY! What a shot to hit under pressure. He was waiting a long time for that from Josh Hazlewood and he's made full use of it. Full on the stumps, Malik with perfect balance and an excellent straight bat, lofts this back down the ground. Clears the rope easily and that will be a biggie. 166/3

36.3 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, CHANCE OF A RUN OUT! Risky, risky stuff from the Pakistan duo here. Shafiq closes the face early and gets a leading edge towards extra cover. Warner comes charging towards the ball and fires a throw at the striker's end. Misses by just that much. Had he hit, Shoaib Malik would have been gone. Single completed. 160/3

36.2 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, It was in the air but it fell just short! Asad Shafiq rocks back to this back of a length delivery and miscues his pull shot horribly. It lobs over towards Khawaja at short mid-wicket but it falls short of him as he dives forward to take it. 159/3

36.1 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Full on the stumps, Shafiq drives it to mid on. 159/3

35.6 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Fuller length ball coming in, Malik picks it off his pads and works it to mid-wicket. Pakistan need 62 to win off 84 deliveries. 159/3

35.5 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Cummins brings out the short one and hits the deck hard, Shoaib Malik ducks and evades. 159/3

35.4 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Length delivery outside off, driven through the cover region for a couple of runs. 159/3

35.3 Pat Cummins to S Malik, NOT OUT! SHOAIB MALIK SURVIVES! This could be the potential game changer for Pakistan. Pat Cummins however, what a ripper of a delivery. He bowls this on a back of a length just around off, Malik hangs his bat out to this and the ball goes behind into the keeper's gloves. There's some noise though and Australia are immediately up. The umpire raises his finger but Malik asks for the decision to be reviewed. And nicely done, though. Replays show that the noise came from the bat hitting the pad. He lives to fight on. 157/3

Shoaib Malik has been caught behind and given out. The Pakistan veteran however feels he hasn't got any bat on that. Let's see what the replays show. Big moment in the game...

35.3 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Wide! Banged in short but it's too short, wide called by the umpire. 157/3

35.2 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Back of a length outside off, kept out off the back foot on the off side. 156/3

35.1 Pat Cummins to S Malik, FOUR! Think Shoaib Malik has had enough. He goes at this and goes hard. It's a bit too wide and it's enough for him to slash it through cover-point for a boundary. 156/3

34.6 J Hazlewood to A Shafiq, Angling in on a back of a length, kept out from deep within his crease off the back foot. 152/3

34.5 J Hazlewood to S Malik, Gets a run this time. Pushes it back down the track and scurries to the other end. 152/3

34.4 J Hazlewood to S Malik, On the fuller side once more, on middle and off, it's once again driven back to Hazlewood. 151/3

34.3 J Hazlewood to S Malik, Full delivery attacking the stumps, driven to Mitchell Starc at mid on. He gets a direct hit at the bowler's end but Shafiq was inside his crease. 151/3

34.2 J Hazlewood to S Malik, Another full ball from Hazlewood, it's driven straight back to him. 151/3

34.1 J Hazlewood to S Malik, Spears it full around off, Malik leans ahead and keeps it out. 151/3

Josh Hazlewood is back on.

33.6 Pat Cummins to A Shafiq, Full on the stumps, it's flicked to the mid-wicket region. Another dot ball and that brings an end to an electrifying over from Pat Cummins. 151/3

33.5 Pat Cummins to A Shafiq, Rock Solid from Asad Shafiq. He stands firm, leans ahead and meets it with a solid, straight blade. 151/3

33.4 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Another edge. But this one is much safer. On a length around off, takes the edge and goes down to third man for a single. 151/3

33.3 Pat Cummins to S Malik, FOUR! And edge which hasn't carried! How unfortunate is that for Pat Cummins? Length delivery angling in from around off, Malik hangs his bat out to this and he gets a healthy edge. It flies behind but falls short of Mitchell Marsh at first slip. It goes through him and that will be a boundary. 150/3

33.2 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Moving away from the batsman, it's tapped in front of covers off the back foot. 146/3

33.1 Pat Cummins to S Malik, Angling in on middle and leg, there's some extra bounce off the deck as the ball raps Shoaib Malik on the thigh pad after taking the inside edge. 146/3

Pat Cummins comes back into the attack.

32.6 M Starc to S Malik, Length ball on leg, goes off Malik's pads as he attempts to flick. It goes towards backward square leg and the batsmen are playing it risky here. They run for the second as there is a shy at the striker's end. That misses and so, the Pakistan batsmen take one more. Three leg byes in total. 75 more needed to win from 102 balls. 146/3

32.5 M Starc to S Malik, Shaping away a shade after pitching on middle and leg, at 142 kph, it's kept out from deep within the crease by Shoaib Malik. 143/3

32.4 M Starc to S Malik, Length delivery angled across, Malik drives it straight to cover-point. 143/3

32.3 M Starc to S Malik, Another play and a miss! Mitchell Starc using that angle well and he's bowling brilliantly. Slants it across outside off, Shoaib Malik looks to play this inside the line but misses. 143/3

32.2 M Starc to A Shafiq, Another full one outside off, Asad Shafiq drives it towards extra cover and sets off for the run. David Warner gets to the ball, positions himself to fire the throw but then pulls up right at the last second. Not sure what exactly but the batsmen are able to take a single. 143/3

32.1 M Starc to A Shafiq, Hurls in a fuller ball wide outside off, Shafiq looks to put bat on ball but is unable to do so. 142/3

31.6 J Faulkner to S Malik, Fires it full outside off, Shoaib Malik leans across and blocks it off the front foot. 142/3

Shoaib Malik strides out to bat. The Pakistanis are still in a comfortable position but you never know with them. They might be cruising through but may collapse down like a pack of cards suddenly.

31.5 J Faulkner to M Hafeez, OUT! The change of angle has done the trick and James Faulkner has struck gold. Comes from around the wicket and angles in a fuller ball from around off, Hafeez leans across and lofts it off the toe end towards mid on. The ball stops on the track a bit and that does him in. Hazlewood settles himself under it and takes the easiest of catches. 142/3

31.4 J Faulkner to A Shafiq, Angles across a length delivery, Shafiq opens the face and guides it down to third man for a run. 142/2

31.3 J Faulkner to A Shafiq, Good length delivery on off, Asad Shafiq stands his ground and keeps it down on the track right under his nose. 141/2

31.2 J Faulkner to A Shafiq, Slants across a fuller length ball, well outside off, Shafiq reaches out to it to cut it away but fails to make connection. 141/2

31.1 J Faulkner to M Hafeez, Fuller length ball outside off, Hafeez leans across and pushes it square through backward point for a single. 141/2

30.6 M Starc to A Shafiq, Full delivery wide outside off, Asad lets it go through. A wicket and 5 runs off that over. 140/2

30.5 M Starc to A Shafiq, Starc is on the charge. Bowls almost a yorker length ball outside off, Shafiq jams it out. 140/2

30.4 M Starc to A Shafiq, Well bowled! Hurls in a yorker on the stumps, Shafiq is alert to it and digs it out nicely. 140/2

Asad Shafiq is the next man in to bat.

30.3 M Starc to B Azam, OUT! Azam departs! The brilliant 72-run stand comes to an end. He tried this shot a few times earlier too but this time it brings his downfall. Bowls a shortish delivery outside off, Azam looks to ramp it over the third man fence but fails to get the desired elevation. It flies towards Hazlewood at third man. He moves to his left and takes a good catch. The visitors are still in the driver's seat and need 81 off 117 balls with 8 wickets still in the tank. 140/2

30.2 M Starc to M Hafeez, Short of a length delivery outside off, Mohammad slashes at it but gets a thick edge towards third man for a run. 140/1

30.1 M Starc to M Hafeez, FOUR! Hafeez is on the charge! Fullish delivery outside off, Hafeez drives it uppishly with an open face through cover-point and the ball whistles away to the fence. 139/1

29.6 J Faulkner to B Azam, FOUR! Sheer class! Fractionally overpitched outside off, Azam leans forward and creams it elegantly through the covers for a terrific boundary. 135/1

29.5 J Faulkner to M Hafeez, The batsman opens the face of the bat and helps it to third man. They pick up a single. 131/1

29.1 J Faulkner to M Hafeez, Slower ball at 122.3 clicks outside off, defended towards mid off of the front foot. 130/1

28.6 M Starc to B Azam, FOUR! Streaky but handy! Bowls a shortish delivery wide outside off, Azam slashes at it but gets an outside edge over the slip region and the ball races to the third man fence. 130/1

28.5 M Starc to M Hafeez, Full and straight this time, Mohammad clips it uppishly over square leg and gets three runs for it. 126/1

28.4 M Starc to M Hafeez, FOUR! Uppish but in the gap! Bowls a fuller length ball outside off, Hafeez drives it with an open face and in between the fielders at cover-point and backward point. Gets another boundary to his name. 123/1

27.3 J Faulkner to M Hafeez, Dropped but what an effort from Cummins! He almost converted that into a catch! Hurls in a fuller length ball outside off, Hafeez drives it on the up over the covers. Cummins who is standing just outside the circle leaps full length and gets his fingertips to it but fails to grab it. Couple taken! 114/1

27.2 J Faulkner to B Azam, Leg bye! Straying on the pads, Azam looks to tuck it but misses and is struck on the thigh pad. The ball rolls towards short fine leg and the batsmen take a leg bye. 112/1

27.1 J Faulkner to B Azam, Full length ball on the stumps, Azam closes his bat face early and looks to play it across but gets a leading edge back down the track. 111/1

James Faulkner returns.

26.6 M Starc to M Hafeez, Bowls a very full delivery well outside off, Hafeez looks to jam it out but misses. Smith goes up in an appeal but there was no edge on that one. The sound was of the bat hitting the ground. 111/1
