England 60/3   PD Collingwood 3* (6b)

16.1

Shoaib Akhtar to Collingwood, (no ball) FOUR, short, Collingwood rocked back and slapped it one-bounce behind square on the leg for four

Shoaib Akhtar to Collingwood, no run, Nice comeback, Collingwood started to play but pulled out of the defensive prod just in time

17.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, on a length and just outside the off stump of Collingwood who comes forward to defend

17.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, pushed off the back foot into the leg side, no run there

17.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, good length again, nice and full from Razzaq and Collingwood can only defend this

17.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood goes back into his crease and plays this with a crooked bat

17.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, a very solid forward defensive from Collingwood, with a resounding "clunk" of the bat

17.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, excellent end to the over as this slightly wider delivery squares Collingwood up who squirts it, quite safely, to point

England 70/3   PD Collingwood 8* (15b 1x4)

19.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, outside the off stump on a good length and Collingwood ignores it, eyeing the ball and pitch very studiously

19.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, a touch straighter on off stump this time, forcing Collingwood who blocks it out

19.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

19.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, he pushes this out into the covers but the length is again perfect, and he takes it nearly on the splice of the bat

19.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, FOUR, fine shot as Collingwood chips this over the infield down to deep midwicket

19.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, defended solidly

England 79/3   PD Collingwood 12* (21b 2x4)

21.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, punched to cover

21.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, batsman tries to push this into the leg side but he is outdone by a bit of away swing, the ball hitting the pad

21.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, and again Collingwood gets into a tangle, but it was too straight to threaten the outside edge

21.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 1 run, too straight this time and Collingwood works him to leg for a single

21.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, crikey that's close! Razzaq cuts this back into Collingwood and it's clearly out but the umpire disagrees. Perhaps going over the stumps but...he's a bit lucky, to say the least

England 84/3   PD Collingwood 13* (26b 2x4)

23.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 1 run, neatly played by Collingwood, intelligent batting as he opens the face and runs this down to third man

24.3

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, outside off and defended on the front foot. Not much turn there

24.4

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, OUT, drifting into Collingwood who comes forward, the ball turns enough and raps him on the pad and Afridi roars an appeal. That's about as plum as a rather large plum from a big plum tree in Plumshire

PD Collingwood lbw b Shahid Afridi 14 (48m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 48.27

England 98/4   PD Collingwood 14 (29b 2x4)
