OUT! Run Out. Josh Hazlewood to Muhammad Musa. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to mid on, direct hit by Cummins. Where is Abbas going? He must not have seen Cummins at mid on and sets off for the single even though his partner has not moved. Picked up by the big quick and he has plenty of time to take aim and fire.Australia win by a huge margin of an innings and 48 runs. Brilliant display of cricket even though they were made to work hard with the ball once again. Plenty of overs on the bounce for the quicks and Nathan Lyon and to take 20 scalps on a flat deck is phenomenal. They would not have got this opportunity though without the record breaking knock of 335 from David Warner to go along with 162 by Marnus Labuschagne. From there they held all the cards and Pakistan were always fighting to try and get back in the game. A memorable knock from Yasir Shah as he scored his maiden ton but unfortunately it wasn't enough.Nice 2-0 victory for Australia to start off their Test summer and a good warm-up for when New Zealand come to their shores. For Pakistan they can look forward to going back home and playing in front of their home fans when they host Sri Lanka.

OUT! Bowled. Josh Hazlewood to Mohammad Rizwan. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to. Bang, through the gate. Pitched up hoping for some movement with the new ball and Hazlewood gets exactly that. Sharp nip off the deck and smashes into off stump. Australia are one away.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Shaheen Afridi. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Hazlewood. Catching practice down at long off. Exactly how you bowl to a tailender, toss it up and invite the big shot. Look of despair from Rizwan at the other end after taking the single first ball. Five for Lyon so he goes up on the honours board.As the players walk off for the dinner break, Australia go in needing two more wickets for victory. They have been much more clinical with the ball than yesterday and got the job done. Only Rizwan has provided some sort of resistance and now he will have to come out and bat with the tail under lights, with the new ball available after this over. This might not go long into the night session.

FOUR! Mohammad Abbas to David Warner. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. History has been made at the Adelaide Oval. Warner reaches the magical 300 mark and becomes the first ever player to score that many on this ground. Huge roar of delight by the Aussie as the crowd, and players, stand to applaud.

OUT! Caught. Shaheen Afridi to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. And out of the blue comes the wicket. Wild hoick into the leg side with Smith nowhere near making decent connection. Thin inside edge through to Rizwan who does the rest. Is this a sign of Australia looking to kick on and set up a declaration?

A huge laugh goes up around the ground and in the commentary box. Afridi can smile about it too.

Plenty of overs on the bounce for the quicks and Nathan Lyon and to take 20 scalps on a flat deck is phenomenal. They would not have got this opportunity though without the record breaking knock of 335 from David Warner to go along with 162 by Marnus Labuschagne.

OUT! L.B.W. Nathan Lyon to Yasir Shah. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. Nathan Lyon at his best. Pushing the ball across the right-hander from around the wicket before ripping it back into the pads. Yasir was deep in the crease and once he missed it he was always going to be in trouble. DRS confirms the on-field decision of out.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Iftikhar Ahmed. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, Gloved to short leg, by Labuschagne. Taken at the second attempt. It hasn't been the easiest couple of days for Labuschagne in the field but he hangs on this time. Nathan Lyon drawing the batsman forward and there is enough turn and bounce to find the glove.

FOUR! Nathan Lyon to Mohammad Rizwan. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Wicket keepers are usually good at sweeping and Rizwan is no different. Very low to the ground on impact which enabled him to roll his wrists and keep the ball down.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Asad Shafiq. Off break length ball, down leg side on the back foot glancing, to leg slip, by Warner. Perfect placement by the keeper and bowler. Warner is hiding around the corner waiting for Shafiq to tuck it off his hip and he does exactly that. Straight off the face of the bat as the ball bounces a little extra and he struggles to keep it down.

OUT! Caught. Nathan Lyon to Shan Masood. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Starc. Big wicket which Australia have been searching for. Nothing much has happened for them all morning so this is a bit of a bonus. Masood looked for the positive shot over the top but he went a fraction too early which meant Lyon could change his length at the last moment. Down the throat of Starc and the big quick gobbles up the chance.

The trouble spot for Masood when the ball goes over his left shoulder. He's got himself into bother a couple of times by getting inside the line and chasing with the hands.

FOUR! Nathan Lyon to Asad Shafiq. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Pakistan have been very aggressive towards Lyon this morning and it's paid off so far. Using the feet and hitting against the turn. Over the fielders who are in close.

FOUR! Nathan Lyon to Shan Masood. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Started on the wrong line with the turn taking it further away from the stumps. Easy enough for Masood to rock back and play the horizontal bat shot.

FOUR! Josh Hazlewood to Shan Masood. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. The pull shot is getting better and better. Picking the length much quicker which is enabling him to get into position on the back foot and find his scoring zone.

Much more confident on this occasion. Gets the arms out in front of him which allows the bat to meet the ball and smack it past the square leg umpire.

OUT! Caught. Josh Hazlewood to Babar Azam. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Paine. The big scalp Australia wanted tonight. Babar Azam has been a thorn in their side in the last two matches but he can only add eight runs. Feeling for a delivery outside the off stump. Strengths can also be your weaknesses and Babar is finding that out.

Playing with hard hands while not getting his feet moving towards the pitch of the ball. A stunning grab by Smith diving to his right.And as the celebrations begin the rain starts to howl around the ground. Players run off while groundstaff run on with the covers.

OUT! L.B.W. Josh Hazlewood to Imam ul-Haq. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad to. The change to around the wicket worked perfectly. Attacking the pads of Imam with enough movement off the deck. All three red lights were shown on ball-tracker so a good decision from the umpire.The start Australia were hoping for after enforcing the follow-on. Early wicket and now when they come out after the break the lights will be in full effect. Still a relatively new ball as well so this will be very tricky for the batsmen.
