England v Pakistan

England won by 354 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

8.4

Mohammad Amir to Cook, OUT, 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

AN Cook c Imran Farhat b Mohammad Amir 8 (36m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

England 42/1   AJ Strauss 21* (26b 3x4)   Mohammad Amir 4.4-1-12-1

23.4

Mohammad Amir to Strauss, OUT, 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!

AJ Strauss c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Amir 45 (107m 75b 6x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

England 93/2   IJL Trott 26* (42b 3x4)   Mohammad Amir 6.4-1-15-2

32.3

Mohammad Asif to Pietersen, OUT, 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

KP Pietersen b Mohammad Asif 9 (38m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 31.03

England 116/3   IJL Trott 38* (66b 5x4)   Mohammad Asif 10.3-3-35-1

33.1

Mohammad Amir to Trott, OUT, 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

IJL Trott lbw b Mohammad Amir 38 (114m 67b 5x4 0x6) SR: 56.71

England 118/4   PD Collingwood 2* (3b)   Mohammad Amir 11.1-3-23-3

95.5

Mohammad Asif to Collingwood, OUT, 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!

PD Collingwood lbw b Mohammad Asif 82 (270m 180b 11x4 0x6) SR: 45.55

England 337/5   EJG Morgan 129* (205b 19x4 1x6)   Mohammad Asif 22.5-7-69-2

99.4

Mohammad Asif to Morgan, OUT, 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

EJG Morgan lbw b Mohammad Asif 130 (285m 216b 19x4 1x6) SR: 60.18

England 344/6   MJ Prior 5* (12b)   Mohammad Asif 24.4-7-74-3

102.4

Umar Gul to Swann, 2 runs, OUT, 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!

MJ Prior run out 6 (35m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

England 351/7   GP Swann 2* (10b)   Umar Gul 17.4-5-61-0

103.2

Mohammad Asif to Swann, OUT, 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

GP Swann lbw b Mohammad Asif 2 (21m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 15.38

England 354/8   SCJ Broad 3* (1b)   Mohammad Asif 26.2-9-77-4

103.3

Mohammad Asif to Anderson, OUT, 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

JM Anderson lbw b Mohammad Asif 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 354/9   SCJ Broad 3* (1b)   Mohammad Asif 26.3-9-77-5

104.1

Umar Gul to Broad, OUT, finished! Umar Gul gets in on the action with a good straight ball that Broad plays all around - it crashes into middle and leg

SCJ Broad b Umar Gul 3 (12m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

England 354/10   ST Finn 0* (3b)   Umar Gul 18.1-5-61-1
