View dismissal AJ Strauss* b Saeed Ajmal 41 53 45 3 2 91.11
11.5 61.2 mph, Ajmal strikes! Pakistan really needed that and Strauss has gone! Slightly quicker from Ajmal, Strauss was trying to maul a sweep shot over deep square but missed and the ball clipped leg stump. Big wicket that, Strauss was playing beautifully 78/1
View dismissal SM Davies c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 87 96 67 13 0 129.85
24.3 56.6 mph, edged, and gone! Davies falls three ball after the drinks break for 87. More bounce than turn for Ajmal, but he's got the ball to do enough to take the top edge of Davies' cut and land safely in Kamran's gloves. That's just what Pakistan needed. They should attack now that the partnership's been broken 153/2
View dismissal IJL Trott b Saeed Ajmal 69 106 78 4 0 88.46
39.3 55.3 mph, gone! Ajmal strikes again and Trott departs for another excellent innings, not glamorous but mighty effective. In the end he tried to hack a sweep shot away but got an inside-edge that cannoned into his stumps 253/5
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Fawad Alam b Saeed Ajmal 14 22 15 1 1 93.33
29.5 63.4 mph, slog-swept again, but this time it's straight into the hands of Fawad Alam at long leg! The Powerplay brings a wicket, and Collingwood's gone for a quickfire 14. Ajmal strikes again! 179/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c †Kamran Akmal b Shahid Afridi 13 14 11 2 0 118.18
33.1 56.2 mph, gone this time! Good change from Afridi, bringing himself back on. Morgan aimed an expansive cut at a length ball, got a faint edge and Kamran Akmal held on again! 205/4
RS Bopara not out 35 33 27 0 3 129.62
View dismissal TT Bresnan run out (Umar Akmal) 1 1 1 0 0 100.00
39.5 Saeed Ajmal to Bopara, another goes! Run out this time, top work from Umar! Bopara fiddled it into the leg side and set off for a couple, but Umar's direct hit in from the midwicket boundary had Bresnan just short! 255/6
MH Yardy not out 1 5 2 0 0 50.00

View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Broad b Swann 53 88 61 7 0 86.88
22.5 51.5 mph, gone this time! What a waste! Having got himself in and well set, Kamran skips down the wicket and mistimes a lofted drive straight to long-off! That will cheer Swann up 123/3
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Bresnan b Swann 30 51 42 4 0 71.42
12.5 51.2 mph, Swann strikes in his first over ... again! This owes everything to a brilliant diving catch from Bresnan at deep square leg. A top-edged sweep, good ground from a big lad, and a fingertip take diving forward 62/1
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf lbw b Yardy 8 11 13 1 0 61.53
17.1 56.1 mph, huge wicket for England, and a timely one. A nothing ball from Yardy, on a good length and holding its line. Yousuf stepped across his wicket to clip through the leg side, but planted his pad and Doctrove had a simple decision 82/2
View dismissal Fawad Alam c sub (LJ Wright) b Bresnan 39 42 39 2 0 100.00
28.1 82.4 mph, oh dear, horrible miscue from Alam. Nothing more than a length ball from Bresnan, Alam ran down the wicket and had an ugly, awful mow at it, ended up spooning a catch gently to Luke Wright, the substitute fielder at mid-on, dreadful end to a bright innings 158/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal c †Davies b Broad 43 44 33 6 0 130.30
32.6 tragedy for Pakistan! Where did this shot come from? Umar went right across to the off side, getting into position to paddle-scoop to fine leg, but the ball took a thick leading edge and looped ever so gently to Davies. 191/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Swann b Anderson 19 44 25 1 0 76.00
37.6 Afridi goes, and with him - probably - go Pakistan's chances of winning this game. It was a slower ball, an offcutter, and he tried to launch it down the ground but sliced at the ball and got underneath it. Swann circles underneath the chance and holds on, bye bye BoomBoom! 233/7
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Yardy 19 11 10 4 0 190.00
35.6 full, straight and bowled! Shafiq went for the slog-sweep to an off stump delivery, missed the ball and looked back to see his stumps in a mess. Another one goes, is this curtains for Pakistan? 218/6
View dismissal Umar Gul c Morgan b Anderson 18 16 12 1 1 150.00
39.2 finally one reaches Morgan! Another slower ball from Anderson, a length delivery on middle. Gul swung it high into the leg side, but couldn't beat Morgan on the boundary. Nine down now 244/9
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar b Bresnan 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
38.3 clatter! Bresnan has made a mess of Shoaib's stumps first ball. Full and straight, Shoaib didn't really have any choice but to swing at it but his head was in the air and he swiped right across the line at it 238/8
