    Even over to over. Couldn't lay a bat on Tait at all. Just beaten for pace. Although appeared to be trying to cut everything.

    Butt liking Nannes, meanwhile. 3 4s; three good cricket shots.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    World record?
    If cricinfo is to be believed, Nannes is tossing them down at 100 clicks.

    My that's ordinary cricket. Butt got nowhere near the attempted pull and just spoons it up.

    Tait giving lie to the "slow tracks" theory. Banging 'em in and they're flying thru.

    Another wicket for Tait @ 135 - he bowls faster than that left-handed

    Probably a good thing if the speed guns are being that erratic.

    Johnson comes on and picks up a wicket straight away. Don't see Pakistan chasing this one down.

    Hafeez picks Hussey out perfectly. 34/3. Pakistan'll be lucky to make 100 at this rate.

    Difference in fielding between the sides is marked too. To 'Strayla's credit and Pakistan's shame.

    Johnson's wicket was timed at 64.8mph. Definitely a good thing we've not got the speed-gun showing on screen.

    Haha, reminds me of the time the New Zealand commentators were talking about how Chris Martin had lost a bit of pace over the winter and suggested everyone keep an eye on the radar, only for Martin's first ball to be recorded at 1km/hr. Lost pace indeed!

    What a catch from the Policeman. So nonchalant, awesome stuff.

    Oz obviously trying to get the rubbish part-time spin out of the way before Boom Boom comes in

    Clarke's great game continuing

    Smith picks one up. Someone fortunate catch for Hussey, almost spilled it. Dire shot from Akmal too; Pakistan relying on a once-in-a-blue-moon Shahid Afridi special here.

    Oz continue to throw Smith to the wolves

    I know the kid has talent but, from a match perspective, now is not the time to bowl him to Afridi

    Leave the "experience" to other matches IMO
