View dismissal AN Cook* lbw b Rahat Ali 45 88 52 8 0 86.53
18.2 83.5 mph, nipping back and striking the front pad, up goes the finger! Cook doesn't look confident but eventually decides to review, knowing how big a wicket this could be for Pakistan... it's tight on line, umpire's call but that's good enough for Rahat, ball-tracker predicting a headache for off stump and Cook is a goner! He played slightly the wrong line, decent ball, though 75/3
View dismissal AD Hales c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Sohail Khan 17 42 31 3 0 54.83
9.3 83.8 mph, got him this time! Reward for tightening up the lines. Just shot of a good length, shaping away from Hales, in the air then off the seam, takes the outside edge 36/1
View dismissal JE Root c Mohammad Hafeez b Sohail Khan 3 11 6 0 0 50.00
11.5 81.2 mph, huge moment! Sohail having a major impact. Root forcing off the back foot, gets a thick outside edge which is safely (yes safely) held by Hafeez at first slip. Now then, now then 48/2
View dismissal JM Vince c Younis Khan b Sohail Khan 39 115 65 6 0 60.00
36.5 85.2 mph, edged to second slip! Younis celebrates then says he isn't sure. Was a back of a length ball, Vince defending rather than driving, it was certainly dying on its way to slip. Soft signal is 'not out'. Looks like it has carried, fingers under the ball. He's done very well here. Vince should be gone here. Another big breakthrough for Sohail. Very clear stuff from the third umpire, Dharmasena, as well 144/4
View dismissal GS Ballance c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Yasir Shah 70 200 150 11 0 46.66
67.2 51.6 mph, he's done him with the big turner from outside off again! At Lord's it rattled his stumps, this time it leaps into the inside edge, for Sarfraz to move swiftly to his right and snaffle an impressive leg-side take. That's the big breakthrough, and Yasir has his first of the day! 224/6
View dismissal JM Bairstow c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Sohail Khan 12 19 16 1 0 75.00
40.2 81.6 mph, short and wide, bit of extra bounce... and it kisses the top edge on its way through! Vapid cut shot from Bairstow and he can regret at leisure, a rather daft waft, given the match situation, and Sohail has four-for 158/5
View dismissal MM Ali c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Mohammad Amir 63 171 118 7 0 53.38
82.1 gottim, nicked to the keeper! Moeen tries to up the tempo with No. 10 for company, forcing a shot off the back foot and there's a thin but discernible edge as the ball straightens just enough. Amir on the money and England have almost cashed their chips 278/9
View dismissal CR Woakes c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Rahat Ali 9 24 24 2 0 37.50
72.3 83.1 mph, snorter! Woakes is one of England's form men, but that was unplayable. Tight line, demanded a stroke, nipped half a bat's width and grazed through to the keeper. You can't do much about those, and England's lengthy tail has its work cut out all of a sudden! 244/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Azhar Ali b Mohammad Amir 13 37 24 2 0 54.16
80.2 good length, bit of shape, Broad swishes away from his body - and Azhar clings on to a sharp catch above his head! That flew off the edge, high towards third slip and it was all instinct, thrust the hands up and the ball stuck! So, the new ball does it, Amir gets among the wickets at last, England eight down 276/8
ST Finn not out 15 31 25 3 0 60.00
View dismissal JM Anderson lbw b Sohail Khan 5 21 9 1 0 55.55
85.6 bit of inswing, Anderson is trapped in front, up goes the finger - Sohail has his five-for! That looked a straightforward decision but Anderson reviews anyway, hoping for a lucky break. It came back a good distance, hit the back leg, and is clipping leg stump according to Hawk-Eye. Sohail threw his hands up and then prostrated himself in thanks, it's been a hugely successful comeback for him, a wicket for each year he has been out of the Test side 297/10

View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Ballance b Anderson 0 4 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 78.9 mph, gone! Early blow for England. Not Anderson's best ball at all, a bit short and wide, Hafeez goes for a cut and doesn't keep it down and it's a sharp, low chance at point 0/1
View dismissal Sami Aslam run out (Vince) 82 270 176 9 1 46.59
62.2 Woakes to Azhar Ali, good grief, what a way to go! A dab to point, a suicidal call, a smart pick-up from Vince and he had time to steady himself before splatting out the stumps with a perfect shy from ten yards! Poor Aslam, that is such a cruel end to a fantastic innings. Eighteen runs shy of becoming the youngest Test opener to score a hundred in England ... 181/2
View dismissal Azhar Ali c Cook b Woakes 139 381 293 15 1 47.44
89.6 83.8 mph, gottim, steered to slip from the final ball of the day! Azhar falls at the last, drawn into playing away from his body, it flew towards Cook, who took a really smart catch right in front of his face, ended up on his backside but he held on... Azhar throws his head back and then walks off to generous applause. A top innings but he would have dearly loved to still be there in the morning 257/3
View dismissal Younis Khan c †Bairstow b Woakes 31 149 90 4 0 34.44
97.4 83.8 mph, and he's struck! A thin edge down the leg side. The ball was there for the stroke, Younis trying to flick it away and just gets a tickle to Baristow. Probably not quite bowled-for-and-got, but Woakes won't be bothered. An edge is an edge 274/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* b Anderson 56 145 107 6 0 52.33
120.1 79.9 mph, dragged on! Something goes Anderson's way. Misbah just defending a length ball and it takes an inside edge, down into his pad/boot and ricochets back into the stumps 358/6
View dismissal Asad Shafiq b Broad 0 40 18 0 0 0.00
105.6 82.7 mph, splat! That was unexpected! The angle does for Shafiq, who seemed to have done everything right as he got into position to block the ball, but somehow missed a straight one - did his bat clip his pad as he came through the shot? - and pop goes the weasel! 296/5
Sarfraz Ahmed not out 46 160 91 5 0 50.54
View dismissal Yasir Shah run out (Woakes/†Bairstow) 7 16 10 1 0 70.00
122.4 from Anderson, plays a one-legged whip-pull through square and England have pulled off a run-out! It was Woakes who was the fielder. Excellent return to Bairstow, and this looks out as Yasir tries to dive back for the second. YJB gathered the ball, then broken the stumps with his elbow having got ball in hand. Bonus for England! 367/7
View dismissal Mohammad Amir lbw b Woakes 1 8 8 0 0 12.50
123.6 84.8 mph, big appeal for lbw, a full ball which shapes in at Amir, think he got an inside edge but Cook has gone for the review. Actually, this looks like pad first. Could be close. And that's out! Very good review from bowler and captain. That's hitting middle and leg 368/8
View dismissal Sohail Khan lbw b Broad 7 24 8 1 0 87.50
127.6 85.1 mph, wide on the crease, strikes the pad as Sohail attempts a clip to leg, and Broad is instantly off on his celebr-appeal ... and sure enough up goes the finger! It is going to review though, but that is smashing the middle of middle! 386/9

51.3 86.3 mph, knocks him over! Finn, you beauty. He's mobbed by his team-mates, he's punching the air like it's kissed his sister under the bleachers. This a a peach of a ball - pitching on a full length and darting back towards the off stump because of reverse swing. Aslam leaves not accounting for it and is cleaned up 125/7

30.3 53.4 mph, done it! Excellent from Moeen and excellent from Cook. Tossed up outside off, drifts away a touch, draws him into the drive and the thick edge is well held by Cook at second slip. Beautiful piece of offspin bowling 79/2

48.6 appeal for lbw! given! But Shafiq goes for a review. Does so after talking to his partner, which possibly means he did not nick it. It's full, nips back and beats the inside edge to rap him low enough on the pads. Poor shot, played across it. This is probably umpire's call. It is, but there's plenty of the ball hitting leg stump. Bowling change works for England. Woakes' dream summer keeps getting dreamier 125/5

50.5 86.2 mph, it's not like they're hooping it around corners. Just a smidge of movement - and they make the most of it by plugging away on off stump. At a full length.

30.3 to Azhar Ali, 53.4 mph, done it! Excellent from Moeen and excellent from Cook. Tossed up outside off, drifts away a touch, draws him into the drive and the thick edge is well held by Cook at second slip. Beautiful piece of offspin bowling 79/2
70.5 to Sohail Khan, 54.7 mph, done him! Moeen Ali takes the wicket that gives England at 2-1 lead! He tossed the ball up, Sohail races down the pitch to meet it. Hits it back to the bowler and he takes a good low catch. 201/10
