  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook* c & b Shahid Afridi 102 168 121 10 0 84.29
40.4 gone! Afridi held that one back a bit and Cook was a little early on the shot, lobbing the ball off the face straight back to the bowler. Still, that's another captain's knock and he's left England very well set 194/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen lbw b Saeed Ajmal 26 66 46 4 0 56.52
15.3 he's gone! Half forward, playing around a straight one - it was the offspinner, but there wasn't much turn and Pietersen went down the Bakerloo (translation: the wrong line). Even he can't bring himself to review that ... Actually, I tell a lie, there was quite a bit of turn there. 67/1
View dismissal IJL Trott c †Umar Akmal b Aizaz Cheema 23 36 38 1 0 60.52
26.3 got him, poor dismissal. Trott trying to square drive a short ball outside off, he didn't particularly move his feet and got a feather-edge behind to Akmal. None of the family could have shelled that simple chance. 116/2
View dismissal RS Bopara c †Umar Akmal b Aizaz Cheema 58 95 66 4 0 87.87
49.6 an almighty skier, which went pretty much straight up and down, with Umar coming in to take the catch above the stumps. Good comeback from Cheema, who started abysmally today but pulled Pakistan back into it with some excellent death bowling 250/4

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Trott b Anderson 26 61 43 3 0 60.46
15.2 the breakthrough England needed! It was a tame dismissal, Hafeez mistiming an on drive straight to Jonathan Trott at midwicket. He took a straightforward catch at head height and Jimmy has his first wicket of the series. No need for assistance from the dew if the batsman are going do that ... 61/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat run out (Broad) 47 88 71 5 0 66.19
21.2 from Broad, slower ball, lbw appeal ... but with Farhat dawdling halfway down the wicket, Broad swoops on the loose ball and underarms into the stumps! It had struck the left-hander outside leg stump but he seemed distracted by the appeal and Broad was quick to seize the chance. Not that we saw a lot of it, as the cameras focused on Dharmasena shaking his head ... 92/2
View dismissal Azhar Ali b Patel 31 69 50 3 0 62.00
32.5 misses a straight one and off stump is pegged back! Azhar played back, trying to give himself room to cut through point but it hurried on to him and rattled into the wicket. Samit strikes again! England seize the advantage once again 142/4
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Patel 5 11 8 0 0 62.50
24.1 on middle and leg, straightens and hits the pad ... out! Is he going to review? No! Patel's golden arm strikes again - as with Misbah and Malik in the first ODI, there was nothing that special about the delivery but it was on target and Younis played around his pad. Samit has tipped the scales (no sniggering) for England ... 104/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c †Kieswetter b Broad 47 110 59 2 0 79.66
47.1 oh what a take! Kieswetter takes an absolute pearler running back behind him to remove Misbah and Pakistan's last hope. Misbah tried to swing a full Broad ball to leg, got a big top edge, it whirled behind the keeper who raced back and was nowhere near it but at the last moment, dived full length to his left to make the grab with both hands. An absolutely fantastic bit of work from Kieswetter and that should win England this game 217/8
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Patel b Finn 21 33 23 3 0 91.30
38.5 slapped to cover and caught! A very sharp catch low down by Patel. They went upstairs to check but it looked pretty straightforward that it was a clean catch...certainly Patel was totally convinced he'd caught it. It was a length ball on middle, Akmal gave himself room to cut into the off side and he found the fielder 179/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Anderson 18 18 1 1 100.00
44.2 swing and a miss and Anderson strikes middle and off, that's a pretty miserable end for Afridi, looking to heave into the leg side, missed by a long way. There really was no need for that just yet...he's handed the initiative back to England after a great previous over 207/6
View dismissal Abdur Rehman b Finn 1 23 12 0 0 8.33
46.6 full, another swing, back goes the off stump and this time Rehman's torturous innings is ended. He tried another heave to leg and is put out of his misery, missing by miles. That has just eaten up deliveries and potentially handed the game to England 217/7
View dismissal Umar Gul lbw b Finn 5 7 5 1 0 100.00
48.1 full, missed, lbw and this game is all but over. A quick, straight delivery is too good for Gul, a great yorker right up there, Gul missed and that would have cannoned leg stump 222/9
Saeed Ajmal not out 7 11 4 1 0 175.00
View dismissal Aizaz Cheema b Finn 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
48.6 swing and a miss, Cheema bowled and England win by 20 runs. A length ball, a real tailender's swipe across the line and the stumps pinged back 230/10
