View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Finn 29 45 28 3 0 103.57
9.1 87.9 mph, another one gone! This has been a harum-scarum opening from Pakistan, making first use of the wicket for the first time in the series. Hafeez got across to one that pitched outside off but nipped back and rapped him in front - it was probably going on to hit leg. Finn is cutting a swathe through the top order again! 49/3
View dismissal Imran Farhat c †Kieswetter b Finn 9 15 10 2 0 90.00
3.4 87.2 mph, and this time too good for him! Farhat played way from his body and feathered a nick through to the wicketkeeper. He needn't have played at the delivery, really, as it was full and a little wider than the one before but he was drawn forward and dangled his bat with disastrous consequences ... 22/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †Kieswetter b Broad 5 22 13 0 0 38.46
8.1 83.2 mph, what a comeback from Broad, inducing a thin edge as Azhar tries to guide the ball down to third man! The delivery was too quick for the batsman, perhaps tucking him up a bit, and the ball scraped the edge of the bat as Azhar attempted a costly dab. After his seven-ball shocker to start with, Broad is smiling again 49/2
View dismissal Asad Shafiq run out (Cook/†Kieswetter) 18 56 39 2 0 46.15
21.5 from Swann, all happening, appeal for lbw, turned down, and now a run out chance and given by the third umpire. It ran off the pad into the leg side, Cook came in and through back to Kieswetter who removed the bails and Shafiq's bat bounced in the air as he slid back in, unfortunate perhaps but he's gone 97/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Swann b Broad 1 6 6 0 0 16.66
10.4 82.8 mph, got him! Misbah's out now and Pakistan really in trouble. He was pushing at a length ball outside off stump, a hint of movement again produces a thick edge to Graeme Swann at slip. Probably could have left it but Farhat decided to push away from his body and nicked off 50/4
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Patel b Broad 50 117 92 1 0 54.34
39.5 81.9 mph, another storming catch from Patel dismisses Umar Akmal! The delivery was full, on the stumps and clipped towards midwicket where Patel scrambled round to grasp the looping ball one handed at full stretch. It was a tumbling effort - and not the most graceful - but he pouched it like good'un and England regain some of the initiative 176/6
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Anderson 51 77 55 3 1 92.72
40.6 83.7 mph, bowled and Afridi's gone and another very important wicket for England. Length ball tried to be whipped into the leg side, Afridi missed, the ball came off the pads and ran onto middle and off stumps. The booming ends to soon for Pakistan 180/7
View dismissal Adnan Akmal b Finn 9 29 22 0 0 40.90
47.3 87.0 mph, cleaned up and ends a very average knock from Adnan Akmal. He really struggled and eventually falls trying to lift a length ball from Finn into the off side, he's beaten for pace and loses his middle stump. Wasted quite a few deliveries there Akmal, in stark contrast to his brother's fine innings 204/8
Umar Gul not out 27 38 27 1 2 100.00
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal b Anderson 4 6 5 0 0 80.00
48.4 82.3 mph, bowled him tried to be swung to leg and missed, again off the pads into the stumps. Inswinger from Anderson does the trick, he cleans up Ajmal who tried to swing from the hip, the job nearly done by England 209/9
View dismissal Aizaz Cheema run out (Finn/†Kieswetter) 5 7 4 0 0 125.00
49.6 Broad to Umar Gul, tucked into the leg side, Gul won't come back for some reason sends Cheema back but he's totally stranded and run out by half the pitch 222/10

View dismissal AN Cook* c †Adnan Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 80 130 98 9 1 81.63
28.2 50.8 mph, oh out! Turn away from Cook takes a faint edge through to Akmal who takes a simple chance. A wicket from nowhere and it's a decent nut that ends Cook's stay 20 from a record third consecutive ODI hundred. He pressed forward to a length ball and nicked it to the keeper. Shame for Cook but can't affect this result 170/1
