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

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

32.3

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

32.6

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

England 90/5   Saeed Ajmal 1-0-6-0

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

34.2

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, 1 run, gripping and spinning in to the right-hander, but it's a touch too short and so Trott can easily whip the ball out to the man on the deep midwicket boundary

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

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

48.2

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, no run, good length here, drawing Trott well forward to defend

48.3

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, 1 leg bye, this again spins a long way from middle stump down the leg side, clipping the pads and running away for a single

48.4

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, 1 run, I'm not sure how well Broad reads Ajmal which makes the sweep a good option and Broad plays the shot nicely from outside off to collect a single to deep square

48.5

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, no run, Trott plays this carefully off the back foot, studying the spin off the wicket

48.6

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, tossed up once again by Ajmal, hoping to get the ball to grip and spin down the slope, but solidly defended into the off side

50.5

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, 2 runs, tapped into space on the off side, Amir charges round and fires in a throw but it's not a good one, effectively yorking Kamran at the stumps and giving away an extra run

50.6

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, arrowed down the leg side, Broad aims to glance but can't get a touch on it

England 143/7   Saeed Ajmal 4-0-12-0

58.3

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, similar ball, and same shot from England's No. 9

58.4

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, 2 runs, lofted out to deep cover. Again, it was chipped rather than slogged, and so doesn't quite reach the boundary

58.5

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, slightly shorter from Ajmal, Broad initially comes forward but then hops back in defence

58.6

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, inside edge! The ball was tossed up temptingly wide of off, Broad leaned into a full-blooded drive but played for the turn. The ball went straight on to take the inside edge and go to fine leg. Cries of anguish from Ajmal!

England 164/7   Saeed Ajmal 8-0-26-0

60.1

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, Broad telegraphs his intentions to sweep and Ajmal pushes the ball up fuller to strike him on the pad. An optimistic appeal is launched, but he's outside the line and it was missing off

60.2

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, quicker through the air, defended to gully

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, big appeal this time! This looks very close but Pakistan don't opt for the review. It was the doosra that beat Broad and rapped him on the pad in front, perhaps it was heading over, Broad did get a very big stride

65.5

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, no alarm this time, Broad carefully defends

65.6

England 187/7   Saeed Ajmal 12-1-32-0

75.4

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, 5 runs, magnificent hundred for Trott, an innings of the highest class in the toughest circumstances, he's rescued England here. He reached the landmark by dinking to mid-on to scamper one and then gets a bonus as the attempted run out goes for four overthrows

75.5

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, haha, this is amusing, a doosra thuds into the pads and loops up to short leg who drops it, drawing all kinds of laughter from the crowd, but it didn't take an inside edge

97.2

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, no run, Broad is struck on the front pad, big appeal from Ajmal and the fielders behind the wicket, but not out is the umpire's decision. They're going to review this... But he's struck outside the line, and that's also bouncing too much. Good decision by Tony Hill
