Australia survived a probing opening spell by Mohammad Amir to reach 76 without loss off 13 overs after being sent in to bat by Pakistan in a World Cup match at Taunton on Wednesday.
It has been the trend today, batsmen looking to take down the bowlers, they want to clatter them over mid-wicket, but are caught.
The latest casualty is David Warner, he wants to smoke Shaheen somewhere, but miscues the slog and the ball goes across to Imam at deep mid-wicket, who takes the catch!
NDTV adds: Roared in by chants of “Amir, Amir” from the Pakistan fans in the crowd, the left-arm quick was on target right from the first ball of the match, beating Australia captain Aaron Finch's outside edge.
That first over was a maiden and Amir bowled two in a four-over spell in which he conceded a mere 11 runs. Finch should have been out for 26 in the 13th over when he edged Wahab Riaz, one of three left-arm quicks in the Pakistan side, only for first slip Asif Ali to drop a head-high chance that burst through his hands before going for four.
Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed decided to give his bowlers first use of a green-tinged pitch under overcast skies.
