View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez b Mahmood 18 72 43 3 0 41.86
14.6 short and outside off stump. Hafeez tries to pull but only manages to drag it back onto his stumps. Pakistan three down 51/3
View dismissal Imran Farhat run out (†Read) 15 58 40 0 0 37.50
12.3 from Mahmood, Farhat tries to cut but gets an inside edge that trickles past the stumps. He sets o for a single but gets sent back by Hafeez. But before he makes his ground Chris Read flicks the ball on to the stumps. The umpire takes his time calling for the third umpire but when he does replays show Farhat's bat to be on the line when the bail is dislodged. 43/1
View dismissal Shahid Afridi b Lewis 2 6 7 0 0 28.57
13.6 bowled! Read came up for that delivery to stop Afridi giving Lewis the charge. Afridi has a wild heave at one on off stump. He misses Lewis hits, Pakistan are two down 47/2
View dismissal Younis Khan c Joyce b Dalrymple 47 116 80 4 0 58.75
43.4 and that's the huge wicket England wanted. That ball was fired down legside. Younis attempts the reverse sweep but top-edges straight to Ed Joyce at short third man. Joyce hardly had to move to take that catch 135/9
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Strauss b Mahmood 11 24 17 0 1 64.70
20.3 and he gets his man! Good length ball on and around off stump, Yousuf is cramped for room and he drives tamely, was taken by surprise by the rise on that one, ball takes the outer edge and flies low to the lone slip, Strauss, who dives to his left and takes a sweet catch, well held and thats a big wicket for England, Yousuf signs off his successful England tour with a low score 68/4
View dismissal Inzamam-ul-Haq* lbw b Collingwood 2 11 6 0 0 33.33
23.1 and Collingwood gets a wicket in his 100th ODI! He strikes with onethat lands on middle and off and moves in a fair bit to rap Inzamam on the pads, looks in front, could be high but umpire Harper says that's out, Inzamam looked to have been pretty much plumb in front of the stumps and he has to go 72/5
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq b Collingwood 5 22 25 0 0 20.00
29.4 Wicket No.50 for him! Good-length ball on off stump, Razzaq plays all over it and the looks back in horror as it nips in and disturbs the furniture, the bowler raises his arms in triumph and gets the hugs from his team-mates, while the batsman hangs his head, tucks his bat under his arm, and begins the long walk back, England make further inroads 91/6
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c †Read b Yardy 4 8 7 0 0 57.14
32.5 fine, fine catch from Read! Amazing! 60mph on that left-arm tweaker, lands on and around offstump, some room there, he makes room to cut and does so very hard, but the ball gets the top-edge and Read takes a smart catch, into the gloves, pops out and onto the arm and he takes in on the rebound, that was a reflex catch and Yardy gets a wicket, Pakistan slip further 102/7
View dismissal Naved-ul-Hasan b Dalrymple 8 22 25 0 0 32.00
39.4 played on! Full outside off stump. Naved-ul-Hasan first thinks about driving it and then tries to cut. The ball turns sharply and takes the bottom edge of the bat on to the stumps 124/8

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Kamran Akmal b Iftikhar Anjum 35 41 41 8 0 85.36
9.1 Game on indeed! This one lands outside off and is moving away, Strauss decides to flash at it and gets an edge, and Akmal dives full length to his left and takes a very fine catch to send him packing and Pakistan have hit back hard, England's captain goes 49/3
View dismissal EC Joyce b Mohammad Asif 8 11 6 2 0 133.33
2.5 bye bye Joyce! This one lands on a sweet spot on off, Joyce thinks it is going to move away but it swings back into him and shatters the offstump! A poor leave from Joyce, judgment error, really but he's sent packing and Asif has drawn first blood 23/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Imran Farhat b Mohammad Asif 2 25 10 0 0 20.00
8.6 Got 'em! Outside the off stump, Bell is drawn into the drive but can only get a thick outside edge to gully where Imran Farhat takes a very good catch diving to his right, Bell is gone and Pakistan are making inroads 49/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Shahid Afridi 34 47 33 6 0 103.03
19.3 bowled! tossed up again. Pietersen gets into an awkward position but nevertheless tries to swipe it on the leg side. This time he misses and his off stump is pegged back. 102/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood lbw b Abdul Razzaq 22 54 33 3 0 66.66
20.4 Pakistan are on a roll here. Pitches around off stump, nips back in and keeps a touch low. Collingwood plays back and is hit in front. The umpire has a good look and eventually rules him out. 106/6
View dismissal JWM Dalrymple lbw b Shahid Afridi 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
19.6 Afridi has another one! That ball drifted ever so slightly in the air, had Dalrymple playing down the wrong line, pitched on middle and struck him low on the front pad. That was definitely taking off stump. 102/5

View dismissal CMW Read c Naved-ul-Hasan b Abdul Razzaq 4 7 6 1 0 66.66
22.4 a rush of blood does Read in. Short ball and Read plays a very inappropriate hook. Rana Naved-ul-Hasan was out in the deep and judged the catch perfectly. 118/7
