Pakistan won by 4 wickets
18,19,20,21 August 2010 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Mohammad Asif to Cook, OUT, Cook's misery continues! He's undone by some regulation swing bowling from Asif, and Kamran's pouched the edge easily. Asif had swung the last few back in to the left-handed batsman but got this one to just hold its line on off stump. A little nick, a regulation catch, and first blood to Pakistan!

AN Cook c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 6 (8m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

England 9/1   AJ Strauss 0* (6b)   Mohammad Asif 1-0-7-1

Wahab Riaz to Strauss, OUT, huge appeal for a catch behind! Is that a maiden Test wicket for Wahab Riaz? Umpire Hill says no... but they think about it and refer it. Well, he's got a huge edge on that so the decision's over-turned and that's out! Great moment for the young bowler. And despite the fairly lifeless wicket England have lost both openers

AJ Strauss c †Kamran Akmal b Wahab Riaz 15 (50m 34b 3x4 0x6) SR: 44.11

England 35/2   IJL Trott 11* (23b 2x4)   Wahab Riaz 1.3-0-8-1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, OUT, what a good catch! Wahab Riaz gets his second wicket and Trott is gone. A thick edge flew quickly to the cordon and Yasir Hameed at second slip has dived to his right to take a sharp chance

IJL Trott c Yasir Hameed b Wahab Riaz 12 (61m 34b 2x4 0x6) SR: 35.29

England 40/3   KP Pietersen 0* (11b)   Wahab Riaz 3.1-2-8-2

Mohammad Amir to Collingwood, OUT, oh, Collingwood has played on! He's chopped down on a ball angled across him and it's bounced into the off stump, removing just the one bail

PD Collingwood b Mohammad Amir 5 (7m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

England 47/4   KP Pietersen 2* (14b)   Mohammad Amir 5.5-2-14-1

Wahab Riaz to Pietersen, OUT, Riaz gets another one on debut! That ball was on off stump and just nipping away a touch, Pietersen got a thin edge through to Kamran and KP was walking before the umpire gave his decision

KP Pietersen c †Kamran Akmal b Wahab Riaz 6 (59m 29b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.68

England 67/5   EJG Morgan 14* (21b 2x4)   Wahab Riaz 5.5-2-16-3

Wahab Riaz to Morgan, OUT, great bowling! Got him this time! The line was closer to off stump, just a fraction of movement away off the pitch and Morgan could only fence an edge through to Akmal! England in huge trouble and Calamity Kamran has caught everything on offer today!

EJG Morgan c †Kamran Akmal b Wahab Riaz 17 (54m 43b 2x4 0x6) SR: 39.53

England 74/6   MJ Prior 4* (13b 1x4)   Wahab Riaz 8.4-4-16-4

Mohammad Asif to Swann, OUT, gone this time! Swann departs and Asif has a second wicket! Lovely bowling, so simple, touch of away movement, finds a thickish outside edge and there is nothing as solid as Pakistan's slip catching at the moment!

GP Swann c Umar Akmal b Mohammad Asif 8 (17m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

England 94/7   MJ Prior 9* (22b 2x4)   Mohammad Asif 13-3-39-2

Wahab Riaz to Broad, OUT, slower ball from Riaz, the ball strikes Broad on the front pad to elicit a huge appeal... The Umpire agrees, and that looked really adjacent. But Broad's asked for the review here... Nope, that's stone dead and Riaz has five on debut!

SCJ Broad lbw b Wahab Riaz 48 (124m 77b 7x4 0x6) SR: 62.33

England 213/8   MJ Prior 67* (112b 11x4)   Wahab Riaz 16.4-5-54-5

Mohammad Asif to Anderson, OUT, Asif snakes one back in the other way, Anderson played for the outswinger and tried to defend at the last moment, but ball beats bat and that looked out straight away. Anderson asks for a review, but that's very optimistic indeed - that would've snapped leg stump in half

JM Anderson lbw b Mohammad Asif 0 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 214/9   MJ Prior 68* (113b 11x4)   Mohammad Asif 18.3-5-60-3

Saeed Ajmal to Finn, OUT, haha, Yousuf will be celebrating this! The drop catch costs just a run. Finn pops forward to defend and it spins past the bat and thuds into the pad in front of off. So, England end all out for 233.

ST Finn lbw b Saeed Ajmal 0 (20m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 233/10   MJ Prior 84* (127b 14x4)   Saeed Ajmal 9.3-1-32-1
