View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 45 107 75 6 0 60.00
23.4 85.7 mph, gone! Kamran holds the edge! Aamer landed one just short of a length, the ball swung away and bounced more than Strauss expected, taking a thick top edge as he shaped to cut. Kamran didn't look totally comfortable in taking the catch, but - vitally - he held on and Pakistan break through before lunch! 93/2
View dismissal AN Cook c Imran Farhat b Mohammad Amir 8 36 26 1 0 30.76
8.4 87.8 mph, this time Pakistan make no mistake! Aamer gets his wicket as Cook is square up by a good ball on off stump, a thick edge is snapped up by Imran Farhat at first slip 42/1
View dismissal IJL Trott lbw b Mohammad Amir 38 114 67 5 0 56.71
33.1 84.6 mph, Aamer strikes again! Trott pads up to a ball angled across him and after a good hard think, Tony Hill gives him lbw. Trott asks for a review, though he doesn't look entirely convinced, and HawkEye shows it pitching in line and clipping the top off of stump, so the decision stands 118/4
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Mohammad Asif 9 38 29 2 0 31.03
32.3 81.8 mph, gone! No review needed this time. Asif has been hammering away on that good length just outside off stump and this one kept straight, finding the inside edge from Pietersen and the ball crashed into the top of middle stump 116/3
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Mohammad Asif 82 270 180 11 0 45.55
95.5 79.0 mph, Collingwood is struck on the pad! Big appeal, Tony Hill thinks long and hard and gives Collingwood out! But was there an inside edge there? Collingwood consults Morgan, and they're going to review this. Yep, hits pad first and then bat, and would have gone on to hit the top of middle. Good umpiring from Hill, and Pakistan have finally broken through! 337/5
View dismissal EJG Morgan lbw b Mohammad Asif 130 285 216 19 1 60.18
99.4 79.3 mph, big appeal as Morgan is rapped on the back pad, and Tony Hill raises the finger! And replays suggest that is another good decision, Hill's having a good game. Morgan walks off to warm applause from the large crowd, it's been a fantastic knock from him. Hopefully there's some applause for Asif too, who has bowled very intelligently this morning 344/6
View dismissal MJ Prior run out (Mohammad Amir/Salman Butt) 6 35 20 0 0 30.00
102.4 Umar Gul to Swann, terrible mix-up, and Prior is run out! Swann had aimed a push to cover off another full ball but the ball squirted through midwicket. They were looking for a third run, Prior watching the ball rather than the non-striker. Swann froze at the other end, and by the time he sent Prior back it was too late! 351/7
View dismissal GP Swann lbw b Mohammad Asif 2 21 13 0 0 15.38
103.2 78.7 mph, that's as out as they come, a straight ball hits Swann on the knee roll, the bat was nowhere near it and Tony Hill has no hesitation raising the finger. Absolutely no need for HawkEye to tell us that was hitting middle stump 354/8
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Umar Gul 3 12 2 0 0 150.00
104.1 82.7 mph, finished! Umar Gul gets in on the action with a good straight ball that Broad plays all around - it crashes into middle and leg 354/10
View dismissal JM Anderson lbw b Mohammad Asif 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
103.3 80.7 mph, gone! Asif is on a hat-trick, and he's got five! The left-hander Anderson pads up and offers no shot to a ball that has surprised him by swinging in and again that is a very simple decision for umpire Hill 354/9

16.4 87.7 mph, cracker! Lovely delivery to end Farhat's stay! Round the wicket, angling in full towards the left hander before snaking away late, Farhat was aiming to mid on and the ball bent past his outside edge and crashed into off stump, dreamy stuff from the birthday boy 32/2
View dismissal Salman Butt* c †Prior b Anderson 1 18 13 0 0 7.69
4.4 85.9 mph, and there's the first breakthrough! Anderson makes Butt play with a good-length delivery that moves away from him instead of straightening, and there's a thin edge through to the wicketkeeper 5/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †Prior b Anderson 14 64 48 1 0 29.16
20.1 84.0 mph, gone! Anderson has his third and Pakistan are folding! It was full and swinging away, Ali popped forward to defend but feathered a nick through to Prior. England were not all that confident with their appeal but Ali chose, eventually, not to refer the decision... oh dear.. replays show it came off the pocket. Why didn't Ali refer!? Perhaps it's tricky for the young man to take a team decision like that... 41/4
View dismissal Umar Amin c Swann b Finn 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
17.6 89.2 mph, Finn strikes! Pakistan in trouble now! This is just the right length from Finn, not too full, hitting the pitch and leaving the left hander a touch, Amin was stuck in his crease and got squared up, it came off the outside edge and flew to Swann at second slip 35/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Swann b Finn 4 18 8 1 0 50.00
21.5 88.4 mph, Umar falls now and Pakistan are in disarray. Back of a length, nipping away a fraction and Umar was rooted to the crease, prodding at it with no conviction and only succeeded in outside edging through to Swann at second slip 45/5
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Strauss b Anderson 38 92 53 6 0 71.69
40.2 84.9 mph, Anderson strikes, just! It was a regulation nick, just leaving the right hander off the pitch, Shoaib edged it straight towards Strauss at first slip who fluffed the first attempt but held his nerve and, more importantly, the rebound. Shoaib's vigil ends and Anderson has his fourth 105/7

53.6 Finn to Umar Gul, oh no! What a shame for Pakistan! Gul pushes to cover, desperately searching the single to take the strike, Asif had already set off, but Eoin Morgan picked up, turned, steadied himself and threw the stumps down. Top work from Morgan and it's brought an end to an entertaining partnership 182/10

0.4 85.0 mph, well, well, well! Chaos! It took almost the entire slip cordon to take that! Great delivery from Aamer, leaving Strauss off the pitch, it went to second slip, routine catch, but the fielder could not hold on at first attempt, then parried the second attempt over first slip, only for none other than Kamran Akmal to slide in and take a superb reaction catch! Only Pakistan could do that! 2/1

It was short and kept a little low, Collingwood tried to pull but it crept under the bat and struck him just in front, umpire Tony Hill took an age to give him out but eventually the finger came up. Collingwood thought about referring but decided against it, good call too, as replays showed it just clipping off stump 72/5

Prior drove through point and there was a comfortable two, but the batsmen then started off for a third, only for Prior to send Morgan back, and the relay throw had Morgan short at the bowler's end 98/6
