View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Stokes 98 232 170 13 0 57.64
54.2 84.2 mph, targeting the stumps, Hafeez walks across and misses with a flick... Stokes bellows an appeal and up goes the finger! Hafeez, two short of a hundred, asks for the review but his best hope may be another no-ball. No, this time Stokes is behind the line and Hawk-Eye says the delivery was clipping leg stump (umpire's call), so the Prof will have to go back to the drawing board/dressing room having spent ten balls on 98. England, on the stroke of tea, have crow-barred one out 173/2
View dismissal Shan Masood b Anderson 2 13 6 0 0 33.33
2.5 79.6 mph, bowled him! Shan Masood was completely stunned by the surprise short ball from Anderson, he swung his head out of the way at the last second, and somehow deflected the ball off his grille and straight onto his middle stump! For an opening batsman in Test cricket that is an utter sucker punch. And England have their incision! 5/1
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Bell b Stokes 245 639 420 24 4 58.33
149.3 79.2 mph, slapped, and straight to Ian Ronald Bell at short midwicket! Shoaib's body was in bits as he stood flatfooted and wafted across the line, and Bell has two catches to atone for ... oh never mind ... 521/7
View dismissal Younis Khan c Cook b Broad 38 72 57 3 1 66.66
70.2 79.8 mph, Younis' aggression gets the better of him! Full length, attempted smear down the ground, and Cook at short straight mid-on plucks it out of the air! 247/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c †Buttler b Anderson 3 20 17 0 0 17.64
74.3 84.4 mph, massive appeal, and England are convinced as they go for the review. Definitely a noise as the ball passes Misbah's edge, through to Buttler, and there's no daylight between ball and bat, no snicko either ... no feed from the third umpire either as he "rock n' rolls" it. He's given it! 251/4
View dismissal Asad Shafiq lbw b Wood 107 291 218 10 0 49.08
144.3 80.3 mph, swing and a miss from Shafiq and he's hit in front! Up goes the finger and England have a wicket at long long last! Well, at least if the review doesn't succeed... Wood stands in the Messiah pose, looks to the sky. It didn't need divine intervention after all. S Ravi checks everything available to him and Hawk-Eye shows the ball dipping under Shafiq's cross-batted swipe to hit leg - possibly a slower ball. Shafiq heads off and, for the first time in 70 overs, England will have a new man to bowl at 499/5
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c Bell b Stokes 2 19 7 0 0 28.57
147.6 83.7 mph, another one, England are running amok (relatively speaking)! Sarfraz was meant to start the party but instead he was late to it... He looks at the pitch after trying to turn a short ball to leg and getting a leading edge to mid-off 514/6

190.1 50.7 mph, he's gone! Cook falls for 263, gently spooning a sweep to backward square leg! Cook looks weary to his bones as he takes off his helmet and heads for the dressing room... The triple will have to wait for another day, just a run-of-the-mill epic on this occasion 549/7
View dismissal MM Ali c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Imran Khan 35 179 131 2 0 26.71
40.2 81.4 mph, an edge, and it carries - Imran has broken through! He looks fit to burst, charging off in celebration as Moeen tickles through to the diving Sarfraz... The opening stand is curtailed, possibly a ball Moeen could have left but it seamed fractionally away and his diligent innings comes to an end 116/1

105.3 87.3 mph, Bell flashes a drive and is caught at point! Restart all the clocks that stopped several hours ago, a wicket has fallen! Still not to a spinner, though... Bell tosses away the chance of a hundred with an airy stroke, curses briefly and then toddles off 281/2
View dismissal MA Wood b Wahab Riaz 4 8 7 1 0 57.14
107.4 86.1 mph, chopped on, another wicket falls - two in two overs for Wahab! Dug in short outside off and Wood couldn't resist having a dip, but he only managed to bottom-edge a cut down on to off stump 285/3
View dismissal JE Root c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Rahat Ali 85 199 143 7 0 59.44
152.2 83.1 mph, edged and gone! Width on offer, but it was swinging away, Root chased it with a loose cut and that's a fine take from Sarfraz, diving fully to his right. Root is furious with himself as he leaves the crease. A century was at his mercy 426/4

161.3 89.3 mph, thumps into the pads, Bairstow is stuck on the crease... and given! Another for Wahab, looked pretty good, as it was so full but Bairstow decides to review anyway - he might as well, given the opportunity he will otherwise miss out on. But Hawk-Eye shows it pitching just in line with leg stump, umpire's call on the rest and he has to go, cruelly 92 short of his maiden Test hundred! 443/5
View dismissal BA Stokes b Shoaib Malik 57 89 87 7 0 65.51
184.1 49.9 mph, bowled! Stokes gallops down the track, and a spin bowler has taken a wicket! Sharp turn from Malik from outside off stump, and he almost looks embarrassed as probably my favourite stat of the match is scratched from the record books 534/6

193.5 47.7 mph, goes after him again, chipped into the off side... AND BABAR HAS A WICKET! His quest is over, after 68.5 overs of blood, sweat and tears. Didn't get hold of this and lobbed it to the catcher running from cover 563/8

17.2 from Rashid, prodded to point, and what on earth?! It's a run out! Why would they even think of a run to Ben Stokes in the covers? Hafeez hesitated but was called through anyway, and the shy pinged down the non-striker's stumps with him miles from the frame! 47/3
View dismissal Shan Masood b Anderson 1 11 4 0 0 25.00
2.1 80.6 mph, bowled him, Masood has played on again! Oh dearie dear, this Test has been a bit of a shocker for Masood, though at least this time it didn't come off his helmet... He dropped back and defended towards his toes, right off the bottom of the bat and the ball spun into the stumps as he tried to flick it away, in vain 3/1
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Bairstow b Anderson 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
2.5 84.3 mph, another one, taken at short leg! England sense there might yet be some life in this game! Brilliant bouncer from Anderson, right at Malik's left earhole and all he can do is pop it straight up in the air, both feet off the floor as the ball just kept coming and it loops gently to Bairstow 3/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c Stokes b Rashid 45 175 114 6 0 39.47
41.1 47.8 mph, slapped, into the covers. He's DONE IT! ADIL RASHID HAS A TEST WICKET! Sharp spin, a loose stroke, and finally, after [quick mental calculation ... (34x6) + (10x6) + 1 = 265] deliveries, he has his breakthrough! 113/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* b Ali 51 165 111 6 0 45.94
52.5 55.8 mph, Misbah skips out and is bowled aiming a slog down the ground! Well, either Misbah has lost his marbles, too, or he knows that the handshake is shortly forthcoming... Bit of turn again for Moeen but he was nowhere near making contact 159/6
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c †Buttler b Rashid 6 27 11 0 0 54.54
47.2 48.4 mph, wide-ish legbreak, Shafiq follows it... and he's given out caught behind! This time the feather is picked up by the umpire, though the batsman isn't sure himself and asks for a review. What's going to become of this one? Shafiq's bat hit the ground around the same time but it sounds like there was a little scratch of outside edge, too - and the decision is upheld! Rashid has another! 139/5

55.5 53.0 mph, edged and taken, a brilliant one-handed catch from Anderson at slip! Babar played down the wrong line and Anderson instinctively snatched it up with his left hand from beside his bootstraps... Well, it seemed he had but we are going to have a delay while the third umpire satisfies himself that the ball didn't brush the grass before the catch was taken. Yes, it's good (or bad, depending on your perspective)! 168/8
