Well I have to say that was a bizarre innings. Pakistan had two centurions in their run chase and yet they couldn't reach the target of 278. There was a real lack of composure from their batsmen which undid all the good work of Abid Ali and Rizwan. Abid Ali fell to a tired looking shot after a century on debut, however he will perhaps learn more about the international game from what happened after he departed than how events unfolded when he was at the crease. Australia continue to impress in this format and are heading towards the World Cup as genuine contenders when you consider the calibre of the players they still have to come back. Glenn Maxwell gets the man of the match award, emphasising the fact that centuries are worth little in a losing cause.

Now it's dead. Stoinis went short again, taking the pace off and bowling it into the middle of the pitch. Shinwari took it on, the ball went up but not far enough and Handscomb took another catch on the legside boundary.

49.5 - M Stoinis to U K Shinwari

Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to backward square leg, by Handscomb.

Hello, that's an almighty blow from Shinwari, a couple more of those will see Pakistan over the line. The game is still alive.

That will be the match. Rizwan struck that well but he's picked out Handscomb in the deep. Mickey Arthur looks furious on the Pakistan balcony, how have Pakistan managed to make such a mess of this?.
