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

2.2

Mohammad Amir to Cook, FOUR, how often do you see this!? The drop catch is followed by a boundary. Amir finding a thicker edge this time that flies into the gap between third slip and gully for four

England 11/0   AN Cook 5* (8b 1x4)   Mohammad Amir 1.2-0-10-0

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

England 43/4   IJL Trott 12* (14b 1x4)   Mohammad Asif 7.1-2-21-1

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?

England 47/4   IJL Trott 16* (15b 2x4)   Mohammad Asif 7.2-2-25-1

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

England 51/5   IJL Trott 20* (20b 3x4)   Mohammad Asif 8.1-2-29-1

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

England 59/5   MJ Prior 5* (15b 1x4)   Mohammad Asif 9.4-2-34-1

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

England 79/5   MJ Prior 17* (46b 2x4)   Mohammad Asif 13.3-3-42-1

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

England 89/5   IJL Trott 35* (62b 4x4)   Saeed Ajmal 0.3-0-5-0

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

England 94/5   IJL Trott 40* (67b 5x4)   Wahab Riaz 6.3-2-15-0

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

England 102/5   IJL Trott 45* (81b 6x4)   Wahab Riaz 7.4-2-20-0

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

England 111/7   IJL Trott 49* (87b 7x4)   Mohammad Amir 13.3-5-34-6

45.4

Wahab Riaz to Broad, FOUR, finally he gets one through, piercing the off side with a back-foot drive, real panache and style in Broad's strokeplay and it races to the point boundary

England 126/7   SCJ Broad 14* (18b 1x4)   Wahab Riaz 9.4-2-31-0

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

England 135/7   IJL Trott 60* (112b 8x4)   Mohammad Asif 18.5-4-54-1

54.5

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, FOUR, dragged down by Ajmal, and Trott cashes in, slapping the ball hard through cover point off the back foot

England 157/7   IJL Trott 66* (135b 9x4)   Saeed Ajmal 5.5-0-23-0

59.6

Wahab Riaz to Trott, FOUR, caressed to long-off! Classical off-drive from Trott, just pressing forward and leading with his left elbow. He hardly seemed to hit it, but it's evaded the fielders and rolled to the boundary!

England 170/7   IJL Trott 73* (146b 10x4)   Wahab Riaz 17-3-51-0

60.6

Saeed Ajmal to Broad, FOUR, top-edged on the sweep! The ball lobs up and over the keeper and slip, who both leap at it, and rolls away for four!

England 174/7   SCJ Broad 39* (75b 2x4)   Saeed Ajmal 9-0-30-0

68.1

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, classy shot this, very well timed indeed. Asif drifts a fraction into the legs and Trott flicks it away firmly to the deep-square boundary

England 191/7   IJL Trott 83* (175b 11x4)   Mohammad Asif 21.1-5-59-1

68.5

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, oh lovely shot again, this one is even better, Trott shuffled across his stumps and whipped this from off stump in front of midwicket for another boundary

England 195/7   IJL Trott 87* (179b 12x4)   Mohammad Asif 21.5-5-63-1

70.6

Mohammad Asif to Trott, FOUR, that is the effect of all those leaves, Asif is forced to try and attack the stumps and Trott punishes him, clipping neatly and stylishly through midwicket for a boundary

England 205/7   IJL Trott 94* (184b 13x4)   Mohammad Asif 23-5-71-1

74.3

Mohammad Amir to Broad, FOUR, shot! Lovely shot from Broad, read the slower ball and eased his arms through the line, sending it well over mid-off for a boundary. Hugely valuable runs these

England 222/7   SCJ Broad 59* (110b 4x4 1x6)   Mohammad Amir 18.3-5-57-6

England 234/7   SCJ Broad 66* (118b 5x4 1x6)   Wahab Riaz 18.1-4-55-0

78.3

Wahab Riaz to Broad, FOUR, too full this time and Broad has languidly driven it past the bowler for another boundary, this is officially a really, really good innings now

England 238/7   SCJ Broad 70* (120b 6x4 1x6)   Wahab Riaz 18.3-4-59-0

England 258/7   IJL Trott 111* (211b 14x4)   Mohammad Asif 23.5-5-78-1

86.1

Mohammad Amir to Broad, FOUR, Amir's turned Broad inside out with this one! What a ball, coming in with the angle and moving away late through the air. Broad was looking to clip through midwicket but the ball took the outside edge and flew through the vacant third slip area

England 276/7   SCJ Broad 88* (144b 9x4 1x6)   Mohammad Amir 21.1-5-68-6

91.4

Saeed Ajmal to Trott, FOUR, again width offered outside off, Trott slices a cut out towards the boundary, where Riaz makes a shoddy attempt at cutting it off and lets the ball over the rope

England 297/7   IJL Trott 124* (244b 15x4)   Saeed Ajmal 20.4-1-65-0

92.3

Wahab Riaz to Broad, FOUR, leg-stump half-volley, clipped right of the middle out to the deep midwicket boundary. Top shot, and that takes the partnership between these two past 200, what a fightback

100.4

Imran Farhat to Broad, FOUR, edged past a diving Yasir Hameed at slip! He doesn't get a hand to it, but that was certainly catchable. Again, Broad was playing for legspin but the ball just went straight on

England 331/7   SCJ Broad 121* (194b 11x4 1x6)   Imran Farhat 3.4-0-12-0

England 392/7   IJL Trott 167* (343b 17x4)   Saeed Ajmal 38-5-109-0

126.3

Mohammad Asif to Broad, FOUR, and another...this is top quality batting from Broad as he drives between cover and mid-off with the elegance of a No.4. Takes England to 400.
