11.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, 4 runs, shot, very good positive intent from Trott, getting forward and clipping it wide of mid-on, it sends Yousuf on a long and fruitless chase - the batsmen run four

11.3

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, nicely done by Trott again, very crisply into a forward block

11.4

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, some extra bounce for Asif this time, but it starts too far outside off stump to trouble Trott

11.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, some away movement here for Asif but it starts outside off stump and Trott happily lets it go

11.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, 1 run, Trott keeps the strike by clipping this down to fine leg for a single

England 36/1   IJL Trott 5* (5b)

12.1

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, full and slanting in a touch through the air from over the wicket. Trott leans forward and defends solidly to extra cover

12.2

Mohammad Amir to Trott, 3 runs, caressed past a diving cover fielder! The ball was similar to the last, this time Trott took a step down the wicket and followed through with the shot slightly more to pick up runs as the ball rolled into the outfield

England 39/1   IJL Trott 8* (7b)

13.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, outside off and left alone

13.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, big appeal from Asif as this one nips back at Trott, but it struck high on the back leg and was going well over

13.3

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, back outside off and Trott watches it go through

13.4

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, full and outside off, swings away lavishly as Trott shoulders arms

13.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, good line, a touch closer to off stump but Trott judges this one well and doesn't play

13.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, back of a length outside and Trott defends it square on the off side

England 39/2   IJL Trott 8* (13b)

15.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, runs, we have runs...Trott opens the face and guides this through backward point and despite a slow outfield it reaches the ropes. The first scoring shot of the day

15.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, and another...that's a lovely shot from Trott as he leans into a full delivery outside off and drives it sweetly through the covers. Is it the same game?

15.3

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, straighter this time and Trott goes onto the back foot and works it to midwicket

15.4

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, full and wide of off stump, swings away further as Trott lets it go

15.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, good line on middle and off, but Trott is rock-solid behind it and defends to mid-on

15.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, outside off and another good leave from Trott to end the over

England 47/4   IJL Trott 16* (19b 2x4)

17.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, edged! But it flies between third slip and gully down to third man...loose from Trott who has been very solid this morning but well bowled from Asif who tempted the drive

17.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, now he walks at the bowler but gets beaten on the inside edge as Trott drags his length back

17.3

Mohammad Asif to Trott, 1 run, defended with an open face towards backward point

England 52/5   IJL Trott 21* (22b 3x4)

18.1

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, pushed across Trott who is well down the pitch and leaves alone

18.2

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, that's a good one outside off which climbs past the edge, but Trott just about manages to draw the bat inside the line

18.3

Mohammad Amir to Trott, (no ball) 1 run, ooh, that's a good short ball. The surprise option from Amir and Trott got into a tangle as he fended into the leg side but no short leg in place...however, Amir had overstepped by a long way

18.6

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, good ball, back of a length and Trott is squared up as he defends to cover

England 55/5   IJL Trott 22* (26b 3x4)

20.3

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, jeepers, that's a wild shot from Trott and very out of character as he chases this one outside off when he shouldn't have been anywhere near it

20.4

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, better from Trott as he shoulders arms to this one outside off

20.5

Mohammad Amir to Trott, 2 runs, nicely played by Trott as he works this off the stumps towards deep square and long long scoots around to do the fielding

England 69/5   IJL Trott 25* (34b 3x4)

23.1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, 1 run, and he starts with a short ball that has Trott rushing into a pull down to fine leg

England 70/5   IJL Trott 26* (35b 3x4)

24.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, big appeal as Trott is struck on the pad by a booming inswinger! Are they going to review this? Indeed they do, but that's missing off and Trott was well down the wicket too, so that's not out

24.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, 2 runs, on a length outside off, and he's chopped down to third man

24.3

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, movement through the air and off the pitch for Asif, and the batsman is struck high on the inner thigh as the ball slants back in to him

24.4

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, this one curves away through the air, but Trott is well forward and across to cover the movement and defend into the off side

24.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, nice shape towards the slips once again, and the length - full - is great too. Trott walks down the track and pushes the ball back to the bowler, though he's squared up a touch as he does so

24.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, another outswinger to finish the over, this time it's wide enough of off to be left alone

England 74/5   IJL Trott 28* (41b 3x4)

26.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, full and Asif finds more exaggerated movement away through the air. Trott leaves alone, and Asif ambles down after his follow through to have a word in his ear

26.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, 1 leg bye, this one goes the other way, but Trott is well down the wicket - he's standing outside his crease and walking down the track every other ball - and nudges to fine leg for a single

England 75/5   IJL Trott 28* (43b 3x4)

27.1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, good length from Riaz, and decent pace too, but he spears this well down the leg side - a wasted delivery

27.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, that's the line! Right on off stump and slanting towards the slips. It was full too, but Trott steps forward and across to off in solid defence

27.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, full on off stump, Trott looks to be enterprising as he punches the ball back down the track, but Riaz collects in his follow-through

27.4

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, probing stuff from Riaz after the first ball was sprayed down the leg side. Again this is lands on a good length on or around off stump and Trott defends

27.5

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, just short of a good length, Trott hops back to defend back to the bowler

27.6

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, landing on middle and leg and angled across the right-hander, who defends solidly. That's a maiden for Riaz

29.1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, back of a length and angled across Trott, who leaves well alone

29.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, just short of a good length again. This is straighter, though, and so Trott hops back and across to defend

29.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, 1 run, nudged off the hip down to fine leg for a single. And that takes Trott to 1,000 runs in Test cricket. A ripple of applause from the crowd as that fact is relayed to them via the big screen

England 80/5   IJL Trott 29* (52b 3x4)

30.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, full, swinging away and left alone by Trott. The ball thuds into Kamran's gloves.

30.2

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, straighter from Asif this time, and Trott drives along the ground back to the bowler

30.3

Mohammad Asif to Trott, 1 run, positive batting from Trott, who drops the ball into the leg side and immediately senses the chance for a quick single

England 81/5   IJL Trott 30* (55b 3x4)

31.1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, full on leg stump, Trott tucks crisply to midwicket but there's a man there to cut it off

31.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, good length again, but pushed wide of off and Trott leaves well alone

31.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, 1 run, back of a length, on the hip, and easily worked out to deep square leg for a single

31.4

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, full on off stump, and Trott aims a firm checked drive to extra cover

31.5

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, very full, Riaz aiming for the yorker here but Trott digs it out eagerly

31.6

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, on a length and straight, Trott nudges to midwicket but they've put a man there to cut off that scoring area

England 84/5   IJL Trott 31* (61b 3x4)

32.3

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, FOUR, thick outside edge down to third man - he was looking to get it down there but it's finer than he was aiming. And some comedy courtesy of Yousuf, who races after the ball (in a fashion) and pulls it up short, but then touches it with one leg still over the rope... so that's four

32.4

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, no run, full and straight, the ball grips and turns to strike the pad but that was going well down the leg side and there isn't even an appeal

32.5

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, 1 run, nudged into the gap at midwicket

England 90/5   IJL Trott 36* (64b 4x4)

33.1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, just short of a good length, but the line is right on off stump. Trott hops back to defend right under his eyes

33.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, pushed down the leg side on the angle from round the wicket. Trott aims to leg glance but can't get a touch on it

33.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, FOUR, half-volley, and solidly slapped through cover point! Great exhibition of the cover drive from Trott, he was well forward and across and nicely balanced to punish the bad ball

33.4

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, better from Riaz, who pulls the length back just a touch. But Trott is in now, and comes forward to defend to extra cover with minimum fuss

England 94/5   IJL Trott 40* (70b 5x4)

34.5

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, no run, Ajmal corrects his length, Trott defends to extra cover

34.6

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, no run, pushed slightly wider of off, Trott thinks about the late cut but wisely pulled out of the shot

England 97/5   IJL Trott 41* (73b 5x4)

36.1

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, good start from Amir, throwing the ball up full and wide of Trott's off stump, it's the line that has got Trott in trouble a couple of times this series, but this time it's mistimed to point

36.2

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, here again Amir goes full and pushes across the right hander but Trott watches carefully to leave alone

36.3

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, a touch shorter and a touch closer to off stump, Trott again surveys the ball intently as he leaves alone

36.4

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, Trott shuffles across his stumps, as is his way, but does nothing more than lift the bat out the way

36.5

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, Trott will appreciates these, he gets another chance to leave alone outside off

36.6

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, good finish to the over, straighter and forcing Trott to defend uneasily off the front foot

England 97/5   IJL Trott 41* (79b 5x4)

37.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, good delivery, better length and dragging Trott forward outside off, comes of a thickish outside edge towards point

37.4

Wahab Riaz to Trott, FOUR, lovely shot from Trott, minimum of fuss, stepping forward and stroking a check-drive down the ground the Yousuf wheezes after, following it all the way to the boundary

37.5

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, Wahab pulls back his length after being driven and Trott defends

37.6

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, batting looks a lot easier from Wahab's end, this is very short and Trott has an age to get back to defend

England 102/5   IJL Trott 45* (83b 6x4)

38.6

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, Trott has remained steady through the carnage and leaves this to end another brilliant game-changing over from Amir, who collected his 50th Test scalp when he removed Prior

40.1

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, very solid from Trott, defending resolutely off the back foot

40.2

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, touch shorter from Amir, Trott plays his routine leg-side nudge to midwicket

40.3

Mohammad Amir to Trott, FOUR, ooh, lucky for Trott this time! Pushing at the ball outside off stump but Pakistan only have two slips in place and it goes wide of the second down to the third-man boundary for a precious four runs

40.4

40.5

Mohammad Amir to Trott, no run, good line from Amir, forcing Trott to defend from under his eyes

40.6

Mohammad Amir to Trott, 1 run, fifty for Trott and what a fifty it's been. In the most hostile of situations he's remained remarkably calm and uncluttered, he reaches the landmark by dead-batting into the leg side and stealing a quick single

England 112/7   IJL Trott 50* (90b 7x4)

41.1

41.4

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, plenty of noise from behind the stumps, but it's not affecting Trott who defends quietly

41.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, ooh, very good appeal here as Asif seams one into the pads, beating Trott's forward defence, it was bang in front but Trott's tactic of batting well outside his crease pays dividends again. Asif wanted to call for a review but Salman Butt decided against it, and rightly so - it was going over

41.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, less drama to finish the over, Trott studies the ball carefully and leaves alone outside off

England 112/7   IJL Trott 50* (96b 7x4)

43.1

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, oh dear, horrid delivery first up, slung well down the leg side

46.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, lovely shot, Trott is so strong off his pads, Asif straightens his line to force Trott to play but it's clipped very sweetly past mid-on for a boundary

46.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, no run, good leave, excellent judgement, having been picked-off the ball before, Asif sends it just outside off stump and Trott shoulders arms

England 135/7   IJL Trott 60* (113b 8x4)

47.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, Trott defends quietly here

51.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, (no ball) 1 run, full and fast from Riaz, Trott whips the ball from off stump to deep square leg. And what's more, Riaz has over-stepped yet again. That's actually a tight call from the umpire, but Riaz is pushing the line all the time

51.3

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, another length delivery slanting across the right-hander, another leave from Trott

51.4

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, Riaz just needs to be patient here. Again he lands one on a length around offstump and Trott leaves. But he's just got to keep the ball there and not try too many different things

51.5

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, just short of a good length on off stump. Trott stays deep in the crease and defends back down the track with a hop

59.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, no run, great line! Riaz pushes the ball slightly closer to the stumps and this time Trott simply had to play. The ball seams away on pitching to beat his defensive poke, but Trott manages to just play the line and not push out at it

139.2

Wahab Riaz to Trott, OUT, Now what's happened here? Riaz fired one full and wide, Trott threw bat at ball. There was a definite sound and the ball landed safely in Kamran's gloves. But was it a bump ball? It almost looked as though ball slipped under bat, it was that full. Pakistan have no reviews left, but the umpires are asking the third umpire to check the legitimacy of the catch ... and that's out! A big edge, a simple catch, and the end of a great innings from Trott
