    COMMENTATOR: "And over the head, its going to be safe. Turner can't get to it. He was almost there, they've taken a single, the ball high in the air. Is he out? Yes - caught by Marsh, and Mudassar on his way. Pakistan two for 56. Mudassar is out for 13. The Pakistanis started looking good soon after that and defied the efforts of Lillee and of Thompson to get them out. They slowly but steadily added runs to their total right up until the lunch break. Going away towards the boundary. I don't think it will be four. Turner's giving chase, it will slow up I think and not make the fence. They've got two, coming back for the third run and this will take Mushtaq onto four. Here's the throw coming in from Turner right over the stumps. Beautiful return. Well played. Runs here for Mustaq. It is four? Chasing it is Davis. I think it will beat him into the fence. Four runs to Mustaq. That's another very long boundary heading towards the scoreboard pocket here on this Adelaide oval. The Pakistani Captain, Mustaq Mahammed, was the next to go soon after the lunch break but the euphoria of the Australian side was short lived. Ace fast bowler Jeff Thompson was put our of the match a few minutes later. Thompson's hurt. Turner's down. Someone's hurt. I think Turner hasn't moved at all. Well the collision there between the two players. Now it might have been a catch for either one. Thompson's really hurt with his shoulder, look at him holding his shoulder. After that spin bowler Kerry O'Keefe became the mainspring of the Australian bowling attack and claimed the wicket of young Jeved Mianded, playing his first test match in Australia...took those wickets in the course of only conceding six runs in just four overs. Good stop there by Marsh. Bari wanted a run and there's a run out. He's out. Goodness me he didn't get back in time and that was it. Pakistan are all out for 272."
