Broad to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, good ball to start, nice and full, wobbling in the air and jagging away off the seam to take the edge of the bat - but it's sped down to third man for four!

22.1

Tredwell to Tamim Iqbal, OUT, Tamim falls! And Tredwell picks up his first wicket in Test cricket. The ball was flighted on middle and Tamim went for the sweep, but was beaten in the flight and the ball appeared to strike the glove and the forearm and loop up gently onto the leg side, where Prior ran round and dived to take the catch. The replays are inconclusive as to whether he actually got a touch on that, but he's been given out, and that'll be a relief for England!

Tamim Iqbal c †Prior b Tredwell 85 (93m 71b 13x4 1x6) SR: 119.71
