16.4

Mohammad Amir to Prior, no run, pushed across the right hander and left alone

16.5

16.6

Mohammad Amir to Prior, no run, GONE?! Is this another one...Prior has driven it to gully but the fielder, Umar Amin on as sub, isn't sure and asks for the replay. More drama. This is conventional use of the third umpire, not a review. The pictures aren't great quality and it's not out

England 47/5   MJ Prior 0* (5b)

17.4

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, on off stump and Prior defends towards cover

17.5

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, full outside off and it swings away as Prior leaves alone

17.6

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, wow! That really was an unplayable ball, it pitched middle and swung late past Prior's outside edge...very few players would have nicked that

England 52/5   MJ Prior 0* (8b)

18.3

Mohammad Amir to Prior, no run, my goodness, another cracker outside off which started to come into Prior before holding its line...just too good

19.3

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, full outside off trying to tempt the drive but Prior shoulders arms

19.4

Mohammad Asif to Prior, FOUR, edged! But this one doesn't carry to first slip, that's Asif's lack of pace not helping this time...it was a proper edge from Prior and the slip, Salman Butt, couldn't even stop it

19.5

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, comes across the crease and defends this late, square into the off side

19.6

Mohammad Asif to Prior, 1 run, uses his feet this time and then works it into midwicket to keep the strike

20.1

Mohammad Amir to Prior, 2 runs, tucked neatly off the pads through square leg

20.2

Mohammad Amir to Prior, 3 runs, well played by Prior, comes forward and guides it through backward point all along the ground but it pulls up short of the boundary

England 65/5   MJ Prior 11* (19b 1x4)

21.1

Mohammad Asif to Prior, 1 no ball, full on off stump, Prior leans forward and defends towards the bowler who had overstepped

21.1

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, short outside off and it gives Prior plenty of time to judge his leave

21.2

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, very wide on the crease this time from Asif, angling into Prior who defends on the back foot

21.3

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, wide on the crease again, and this one then shapes away from Prior's bat as he plays forward...excellent variation from Asif

21.4

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, back of a length outside off and left alone

21.5

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

21.6

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, ooh, another good one outside off that beats the edge as Prior plays forward

England 68/5   MJ Prior 11* (26b 1x4)

22.5

Mohammad Amir to Prior, no run, pushed across very wide outside but it went through with some pace to the keeper

22.6

Mohammad Amir to Prior, no run, ooh, there's a good one that beats the outside edge with Prior playing from the crease

England 69/5   MJ Prior 11* (28b 1x4)

23.2

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, that's better, much fuller from Riaz and he's already found some life off the pitch as the ball lifts off a length and Prior whips the bat inside the line

23.3

Wahab Riaz to Prior, 2 runs, full again, but a touch straight this time and he's worked neatly through midwicket

23.4

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, that has jagged away off the seam! It was just short of a good length and so Prior could drop the hands on the shot as the ball rushed up at him, but a cracking delivery all the same

23.5

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, back of a length again from Riaz, this time Prior is back and across into a solid defensive stroke

23.6

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, airy drive outside off! The first really full ball of the over from Riaz, and it was quite wide too. Prior flashed at it without too much foot movement and is lucky not to get a touch on that

England 72/5   MJ Prior 13* (33b 1x4)

25.1

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, another lifter from Riaz as he bangs this down back of a length. The ball seams away after pitching and Prior pokes nervously at it. Again, he's lucky not to edge that

25.2

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, fuller, and slanted across the right-hander, who leaves alone

25.3

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, back of a length once again, Prior defends back down the track

25.4

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, a good length on middle and leg, Prior taps back to the bowler

25.5

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, banged in very short by Riaz, this looked like a slower-ball bouncer that went wrong. It was certainly slower, but sprayed well down the leg side. Good work by Kamran to cut that off

25.6

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, full on middle and leg again, Riaz gets this one to just shape back in to the batsman through the air. Solid defence from Prior though

England 74/5   MJ Prior 13* (39b 1x4)

26.3

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, floated down full on off stump, Prior leans forward in defence

26.4

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, beaten outside off! Prior also comes down the track and is beaten on the outside edge as the ball shapes away from him. To his credit, he didn't push out at the ball and just played the line

26.5

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, moving away towards the slips, but wide of off and left alone by Prior

26.6

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, there's the variation from Asif, as this one comes back in off the seam. It's slightly misdirected outside off though, and so easily left alone once again

England 75/5   MJ Prior 13* (43b 1x4)

28.1

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, on a length and seaming in after pitching, Prior is back and across in defence

28.2

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, cracking delivery, and Prior is beaten outside off! Asif went wider on the crease to get the batsman playing, but jagged the ball away off the seam to beat the outside edge. Close!

28.3

Mohammad Asif to Prior, FOUR, great riposte from Prior! He steps right across to the off side and whips a full ball through midwicket for four. The batsmen are starting to settle now

28.4

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, good ball, angled in and swinging away through the air. Prior punches firmly back down the track

28.5

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, Asif pushes the line slightly wider of off but Prior gets forward and across and defends confidently to cover

28.6

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, another outswinger to finish the over, but Prior decides not to play at this one, raising his bat over his head to shoulder arms

England 79/5   MJ Prior 17* (49b 2x4)

29.4

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, on a length, slanted across Prior and going further off the seam. Left alone

29.5

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, similar ball to the last, but this time Prior hangs his bat out and guides the ball down to gully - looking for the run to third man there

29.6

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, very full but well wide of off stump, and Prior won't be tempted

England 80/5   MJ Prior 17* (52b 2x4)

30.4

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, nice and full but much too wide from Asif, and Prior isn't interested in playing a shot

30.5

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, full, pushed firmly back to the bowler

30.6

Mohammad Asif to Prior, no run, and another leave to finish the over, as Asif pushes this one slightly wide of off and the movement takes it further

England 81/5   MJ Prior 17* (55b 2x4)

31.4

Wahab Riaz to Prior, (no ball) 1 run, that's just short of a diving gully! Prior looked to run the ball down to third man but it just rose on him and he couldn't keep the shot down. Well, it's a no-ball so wouldn't have been out anyway

England 84/5   MJ Prior 18* (56b 2x4)

32.1

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, no run, speared in first ball by Ajmal, and Prior defends from the crease

32.2

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, 1 run, premeditated paddle-sweep from Prior to get the ball down to short fine leg

32.6

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, no run, pushed back to the bowler to finish the over

England 90/5   MJ Prior 19* (59b 2x4)

34.1

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, 1 run, there's the paddle-sweep again from Prior, as he laps the ball down to fine leg

34.3

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, no run, full and straight, nudged defensively into the leg side

34.4

Saeed Ajmal to Prior, 1 run, too short again, and flicked through square off the back foot by Prior to take the partnership to fifty

England 97/5   MJ Prior 21* (62b 2x4)

35.3

Yasir Hameed to Prior, no run, on a length, more defence from Prior

35.4

Yasir Hameed to Prior, no run, full on off stump this time, Prior aims a speculative drive at mid-off

35.5

Yasir Hameed to Prior, no run, this jags in after pitching, but at no great pace at all and so Prior defends easily

35.6

Yasir Hameed to Prior, no run, off the edge! This one moved away off the seam to take a thick outside edge, but fell well short of second slip

England 97/5   MJ Prior 21* (68b 2x4)

37.1

Wahab Riaz to Prior, no run, Wahab Riaz is given the job of sharing Pakistan's post-lunch attack and he begins with a shortish ball on off stump that Prior defends sweetly to point

37.2

Wahab Riaz to Prior, 1 run, back of a length again from Wahab, Prior stands tall and nudges into the leg side for a single

England 98/5   MJ Prior 22* (70b 2x4)

Mohammad Amir to Prior, no run, good delivery from Amir again, Prior defends around off stump quietly

38.2

Mohammad Amir to Prior, OUT, Amir strikes again! Prior gone now and England's slide continues! Pushed up full and going across Prior, he got half-forward and could only nibble at the ball, getting a faint outside edge to Kamran Akmal
