View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †Kieswetter b Dernbach 1 7 3 0 0 33.33
1.2 83.0 mph, gone! Excellent start to Dernbach's comeback. A good length outside off and a tentative poke from Hafeez which sent a regulation catch to the keeper. No footwork to speak of from Hafeez, which has been a problem for a number of Pakistan's batsmen 1/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali c Morgan b Dernbach 58 128 89 5 0 65.16
33.1 81.9 mph, length, an outside egde and caught at point. A fine, diving take from Morgan to his right, bagging the chance with both hands. It was a length ball which he tried to turn to leg but got a leading edge that looped low to point 144/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Bresnan 65 85 78 6 0 83.33
22.5 79.9 mph, chopped it on trying to cut a ball that was angled in to the right-hander and the shot that had served Shafiq rather well becomes his downfall. It was on a length and Shafiq tried to stand in the crease and chop it down to third man but it just came back in a touch to take the bottom edge onto the stumps 112/2
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Dernbach b Briggs 12 22 21 1 0 57.14
29.6 55.5 mph, down the pitch, in the air, he hasn't caught this properly and holed out to long off. Didn't get to the pitch, still tried to lift the ball over the fence and paid the penalty, a simple chance for Dernbach coming in a couple of yards from the fence 135/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik lbw b Briggs 23 57 33 0 0 69.69
43.3 54.8 mph, another scalp for the debutant! He gave this one a little more air and Malik missed with a full-blooded sweep, the ball thumping into his back leg right in front of off stump. Classic left-arm spinner's wicket to cap a tidy performance from the new boy 202/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Trott b Dernbach 46 79 52 1 1 88.46
49.4 82.3 mph, no more lives for Misbah - this time he slogs a length ball to deep midwicket and Trott, the man underneath, makes no mistake 237/9
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c Bresnan b Finn 9 13 10 1 0 90.00
46.2 84.3 mph, fantastic catch from Bresnan! It was slightly short of a length and Afridi pulled hard but flat through the air, the ball dying on Bresnan as he came in from the deep midwicket boundary but he flung himself forward to take a catch Samit Patel Jonty Rhodes would have been proud of! 215/6
View dismissal Adnan Akmal run out (Patel/†Kieswetter) 2 4 2 0 0 100.00
47.1 Bresnan to Misbah-ul-Haq, at last, a comedy run-out! Adnan was far to quick for his own good, scurrying through for one after Misbah's flick to midwicket and then getting halfway down the wicket before realising his partner had declined to take on Samit Patel's arm in pursuit of a second. Adnan is then given a scolding by his captain as he walks off forlornly 220/7
View dismissal Abdur Rehman c Trott b Finn 12 7 7 2 0 171.42
48.3 86.8 mph, and that's the result! He dropped shorted, targetting Rehman's body, and the batsman could only scoop it to the backward square-leg fielder inside the circle 233/8
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal b Dernbach 1 8 5 0 0 20.00
49.6 81.4 mph, that'll do it, full and straight and Ajmal has his stumps rearranged. Dernbach finishes with four wickets and it's been something of a comeback for England in the second half of the innings 237/10

View dismissal AN Cook* lbw b Junaid Khan 4 2 2 1 0 200.00
0.2 84.8 mph, but this is better, fired into leg stump, crashed against the pad, huge cry for lbw, turned down, it was full and looked pretty straight, hitting Cook low on the pad, they review and three reds, Cook's amazing run of form comes to an end courtesy of a fabulous delivery that's done the England captain for pace 4/1
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Abdur Rehman b Saeed Ajmal 130 197 153 12 2 84.96
48.6 55.3 mph, down the track, edged and caught at point! So not quite to the end but that was inevitable that Pietersen would try something like that but he's outfoxed Ajmal today. He tried to go into the leg side but it's off a whirl of an edge straight to point 236/6
View dismissal IJL Trott c Mohammad Hafeez b Abdur Rehman 15 50 32 2 0 46.87
12.1 57.9 mph, gone top-edging a pull to midwicket where Hafeez comes round a takes a simple catch. It wasn't short enough to pull and Trott tried to short-arm jab it round the corner but got a top edge straight up in the air 50/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan lbw b Saeed Ajmal 15 14 16 1 0 93.75
15.4 53.9 mph, hit on the front pad, big stride but that won't save him! And Morgan has decided against the review. It looked like he might just have got outside the line of off stump but these marginal calls are just as likely to stay with the umpire's call in the Post DRS era. Ajmal tossed it up, Morgan missed with a crossed bat and umpire Haider raised the finger 68/3
View dismissal JC Buttler c Azhar Ali b Saeed Ajmal 0 3 2 0 0 0.00
15.6 56.4 mph, and no sooner has he arrived in international cricket than he's gone! Buttler pushed tentatively at one turned towards leg, rubbed the gloves/shoulder of the bat, hit his thigh and looped high and into the hands of short leg. After just two balls, the Buttler has been served 68/4
View dismissal C Kieswetter run out (Azhar Ali/†Adnan Akmal) 43 83 62 4 0 69.35
39.5 from Saeed Ajmal, dropped into the off side, Kiewsetter sent back, and excellent work from Azhar Ali runs him out, despite the full length dive, there was never a run there and Pakistan have seized their chance 177/5
