21.1

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run

21.4

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run

23.1

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

23.2

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

23.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, nipping back but umpire Bukcnor is unmoved. Would have missed offstump by two or three inches.

23.4

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 2 runs, launched, a tad unconvincingly, over mid-on. Doesn’t quite get hold of it, but clears the fielder easily.

23.5

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, asking the question, there, with wone which darted in, but Collingwood smothers any threat.

23.6

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, all kinds of things going here. Did Collingwood edge it through to a clasping Akmal? (It looked like it hit his thigh) Was he stumped? (No, his foot was still in the crease) Either way he’s still here as Bucknor is uninterested.

27.1

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, good start, drifting in the air and spun back, hits Collingwood’s pad

27.2

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, (no ball) FOUR, Kaneria over-steps and Collingwood pumps it down the ground, without any great power. Inzamam, at mid-on, runs after it but fumbles it on the boundary

27.2

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, good line, slightly too full, solid forward defence

27.3

28.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, outside his off-stump, no swing, left well alone

28.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, shorter and a touch quicker, batsman defends up on his toes. Not much swing on offer, yet, after lunch

28.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, poor delivery; short, wide and cut hard by Collingwood past gully down to the third-man boundary. Confident stroke

28.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, fuller and a smidgen straighter, forces Collingwood forward who finds a thickish outside edge, down for another four to third man. Runs coming in a hurry here

England 141/3   PD Collingwood 28* (36b 4x4)
29.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, defended on the front foot

29.4

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

35.6

England 162/3   PD Collingwood 37* (50b 5x4)
36.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 run, whips it from middle through midwicket for an easy single. A “nothing” sort of delivery, still no consistency from Gul

36.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, outside off and left well alone by Collingwood, rightly so. Gul struggling with the left/right-handed combination at the crease

36.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, beauty! Absolute jaffer, Gul’s first of the match. Swings into Collingwood, squares him up, cuts away and beats him all ends up. Super ball, that.

37.2

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, on the back foot, Collingwood chops it into the covers

37.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, 1 run, short and wide (again), Collingwood misses out here and crunches it hard into the ground but just for a single

England 178/3   PD Collingwood 48* (62b 6x4)
41.5

41.6

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, no need to play at these, Kaneria around the wicket to the right-handed Collingwood who simply gets his pad in the way

England 181/3   PD Collingwood 48* (64b 6x4)
42.2

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, FOUR, stunning, shot of the day/match, rides the bounce and punches it off the back foot - timed to perfection. Brings up a characteristically pugnacious, gutsy fifty. Well done that man

42.3

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run, eye on the ball, defends careully

42.4

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, 1 run, shorter and quicker, too, Collingwood drops it to the off side and Cook calls him through

England 188/3   PD Collingwood 54* (72b 7x4)

51.1

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run

51.2

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, pitched on off, forced a forward defensive.

51.3

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, a touch more room on the off, but Collingwood can’t get enough purchse on his cut shot.

51.4

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, better from Afridi who darts that one in; no spin, but a bit of drift.

51.5

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, again Afridi gets the ball to pitch in an uncomfortable area and Collingwood jams his bat down

51.6

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, 1 run, forced through midwicket.

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

54.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

54.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, FOUR, Ugly but controlled hoick square, but Collingwood won’t care about how it looked; that's four

54.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, FOUR, slightly shorter, slightly quicker but more elegant from Collingwood, who was quickly on to that.

54.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, huge appeal for an inside edge. A big noise, which turns out to be the pad – great decision from umpire Taufel; the Pakistan team were understandably appealing loudly for that one.

England 230/3   PD Collingwood 70* (96b 9x4)
56.1

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, FOUR, another boundary from Collingwood, another pull. Kaneria dropped that short and got the treament

England 237/3   PD Collingwood 75* (98b 10x4)

57.3

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run

57.4

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, 1 run, glided to square and the pressure England are exerting is building. An MCC member makes himself useful by moving the sightscreen for Cook. Good man.

59.4

59.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, wider still, although not “officially” an umpire’s wide

59.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, fuller and straighter, a touch nippier too, and Collingwood jams his bat down on it

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

England 248/3   PD Collingwood 77* (112b 10x4)

62.2

62.5

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 1 run, 5 cuts hard into the deep, a quick single scampered as is Collingwood’s wont

England 251/3   PD Collingwood 79* (115b 10x4)
63.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run

63.2

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, gone, out, no! Dropped! Leg-cutter, outside edge straight to Kamran Akmal – dreadful shot from Collingwood I might add – and, somehow, Akmal shelled it. Deafening silence from the captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, and not much more being said from the slips. Ooh, that’s a shocker

63.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, that’s better, a solid forward defence

63.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, dropped to the off-side

63.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 no ball, well timed by Collingwood, a no-ball too, but straight to the man at cover

63.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, kept a bit low, very low actually, almost trapped him between the knees

63.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 3 runs, intelligent cricket from Collingwood, waiting for the bad ball – which has been the story of the day, really, as far as Pakistan’s bowling goes – and he whips it through midwicket

England 255/3   PD Collingwood 82* (122b 10x4)
64.1

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, batsman comes forward, meets the ball and dampens the spin well

64.2

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, straighter this time, perhaps the top-spinner, Collingwood again meets the ball with a solid bat

64.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, big appeal from Kaneria and Akmal as Collingwood inside-edges onto his pad

64.4

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

64.5

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, on middle-and-off stump, turning away a touch, defended solidly. Five dot balls so far

64.6

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 1 run, bah, again the maiden over is spoilt as Collingwood squirts one to the leg-side and Cook is quick to react and run through for a single

England 256/3   PD Collingwood 83* (128b 10x4)
65.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, outside off-stump, left well alone - no need to play at those

65.2

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, wider still, left alone

65.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, Gul straightens his line, forcing the batsman to defend

65.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, wider still, this is far from inspiring from Gul – but he did at least induce Collingwood, no doubt now fed up with the wide bowling, to flail at it

65.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, classically driven along the ground but straight to the cover fielder

65.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, and it’s a maiden. Gul’s clearly trying to get the ball to reverse but it’s not quite working for him yet

England 256/3   PD Collingwood 83* (134b 10x4)
66.6

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood hammers it back to Kaneria who, this time, stops it

England 257/3   PD Collingwood 83* (135b 10x4)
67.2

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 run, wide, again, and Collingwood times it to backward point who fumbles it ungraciously. Collingwood not moving his feet, though, to the short ball

England 259/3   PD Collingwood 84* (136b 10x4)
68.1

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 1 run, neat clip off his legs to long-on

England 260/3   PD Collingwood 85* (137b 10x4)
69.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, moved away slightly from the batsman, Collingwood still refusing to move his feet – perhaps wary of the nip-backer from Gul

69.2

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, Gul drops it short and Collingwood was remarkably quick to pounce on it, pulling it well in front of square with tremendous power for a fine four

69.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, fuller and quicker ball by Gul, one which just – at the last second – threatened to move away from Collingwood who jams his bat down effectively, albeit ungainly

69.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, an ugly jammer-downer again from Collingwood, but he kept it out and that’s all that matters

69.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, full toss, smeared straight to extra cover

69.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 2 runs, yet again it’s simply too short from Gul and Collingwood, who is so well set now, simply rocks back and cuts it past extra cover for two

England 268/3   PD Collingwood 91* (143b 11x4)
71.3

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run, that’s better from Sami, straighter and quicker forcing Collingwood into playing a shot

74.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 2 runs, leg-side drifter flicked, unsurprisingly, down to fine-leg

74.4

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, pumped back to Kaneria for a crowd catch. Or rather, it fell short, but it looked an impressive dive&

74.5

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

74.6

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, absolute ripper, a classical legbreak dipping into Collingwood and fizzing away. Beautiful bowling

76.1

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

76.2

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood shimmies down the pitch to defend a non-turner

76.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, FOUR, down the pitch and he lofts it over mid-off, very confident shot indeed. Takes him onto 99

76.4

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 1 run, nudged on the on-side, and that’s his hundred! A gutsy, belligerent innings from 157 balls. Superb knock, digging England out of a potential cavernous hole. He raises his arms and punches the air, as well he should

76.6

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run

England 281/3   PD Collingwood 100* (158b 12x4)

81.6

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run, sharp bouncer, but Collingwood ducked under that without issue.

England 293/3   PD Collingwood 104* (168b 12x4)
83.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, finds a hint of swing

83.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, ooh. Collingwood plays away from his body and nearly bottom edges on to the off-stump. Razzaq runs his hands through his hair; a near miss.

83.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

83.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, huge shout, but Bucknor not interested as it was going over the top of middle. Razzaq got that one to move right back in to Collingwood who was beaten.

83.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, forces another defensive shot.

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, attempted drive slapped straight into his left thigh. Ouch.

86.1

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, 1 run, lashed through point to bring Cook onto strike

87.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

87.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 1 run, strayed down leg and Collingwood takes the single. Could this be Cook’s moment, now? Pakistan strengthen the off-side and the slip cordon, just to make Cook wait and try to shake him.

England 306/3   PD Collingwood 108* (183b 12x4)
88.1

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, Afridi spears that one in but Collingwood digs it out.

91.2

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, fuller and straighter from Gul, Collingwood comes forward and defends solidly

91.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, batsman flirts with the idea of cutting this wide delivery before shouldering arms. A useful sighter. No swing or seam movement for Gul yet

91.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood gets on top of this and, with a high left elbow, punches it straight to cover without any timing

91.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, useful delivery, the leg-cutter, passing by Collingwood’s outside edge shaping away

91.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, straight, on middle-and-off, Collingwood jams down on it and defends

93.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, ah, good one from Gul, holds its line and Collingwood doesn’t quite move his feet. Bit of a wishy washy waft there, passes his outside edge

93.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, big shout from Gul, less so from Akmal, as the ball jags back sharply at Collingwood to rap him on his pads. Umpire Steve Bucknor shakes his head

93.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, and Gul lets himself down here, overpitching and drifting down the leg-side, Collingwood flicks it confidently past long-on for an easy boundary. Super shot, that.

England 321/3   PD Collingwood 117* (201b 14x4)
95.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, oh super shot from Collingwood, outstanding cut shot right on top of the bounce, hammered through point

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run

95.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, rubbish from Gul, too full and drifting down leg-side. You can’t bowl there. Collingwood’s bread-and-butter, milking it through midwicket and timing it superbly. Lovely shot that.

95.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run

95.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, yikes, moves down the slope and almost cuts Collingwood in half, raps him on the pads

95.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, FOUR, too easy for Collingwood, short and wide and he pounces on it to send it rocketing to the extra-cover fence

England 337/4   PD Collingwood 129* (207b 17x4)
97.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, defended off the front foot

97.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, left alone

97.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 run, attempted yorker and a good one, but Collingwood digs it out and calls Bell through for a well-run single

England 348/4   PD Collingwood 130* (210b 17x4)
98.6

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run

England 356/4   PD Collingwood 130* (211b 17x4)
99.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, banana-movement, swings back into Collingwood before moving away from Kamran Akmal, the wicketkeeper. Breezy day, perhaps the wind is affecting their lines.

99.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, now then, pitches this one well up to the batsman and drifts it down leg, before it straightens right at the last minute. Touch of reverse swing? Far too early for that, surely.

99.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 run, punches this down to third man

England 358/4   PD Collingwood 131* (214b 17x4)
100.1

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run, how’s that? Gone surely, no – huge appeal from Sami and the wicketkeeper. Collingwood edges it behind and, for some reason, Simon Taufel turns it down. That, frankly, was a dreadful decision and Collingwood survives. Inzamam-ul-Haq is currently chewing on his fingernails, and who can blame him?

100.2

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run

100.3

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, 3 runs, nudged through midwicket

England 361/4   PD Collingwood 134* (217b 17x4)
101.1

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, 1 run, short and wide and cut powerfully but straight to the deep extra-cover fielder. Bit of a loosener from Afridi

101.3

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, poked without power to mid-off

101.4

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, FOUR, miles too short and he climbs into it, walloping it off the toe-end of the bat over midwicket for a crunching boundary

101.5

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, FOUR, same again from Collingwood, almost a mirror of the previous ball, but hit with greater timing. Why isn’t Kaneria bowling?

101.6

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, oh hello! That’s a bit close, no, turned down by Bucknor. Quicker ball from Afridi, raps Collingwood on the pads, perhaps going down leg. Lucky

England 371/4   PD Collingwood 143* (222b 19x4)
102.2

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, 1 run, driven off the back foot

102.5

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, no run, too wide, oh come on attack the stumps

102.6

Mohammad Sami to Collingwood, FOUR, better ball, fuller, but this time it’s too full and Collingwood punches it down the ground for four. Really well timed

England 378/4   PD Collingwood 148* (225b 20x4)
103.3

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run

103.4

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run

103.5

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, wrists whirling, Afridi puts that on a good length

103.6

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, Collingwood hits that back to the bowler and Afridi takes a casual mock-shy at the stumps without actually releasing the ball. There’s the odd ironic cheer in the crowd for it, but maybe they’re just bored. Time for them, and everyone else, to tuck into their first, or second, beverage of the day anyway – because that’s drinks.

England 379/4   PD Collingwood 148* (229b 20x4)
104.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, probing around off-stump again, but Collingwood removes his bat early for the leave

104.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, a touch of the Trescothicks there as Collingwood’s leaden feet stay rooted to the crease as he attempts, and fails to time, a backfoot drive

England 380/4   PD Collingwood 148* (231b 20x4)
105.5

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, Afridi racing through his over here

105.6

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, 1 run, worked to leg and they scamper a quick run.

England 382/4   PD Collingwood 149* (233b 20x4)
106.1

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, nipped back but pitched outside the line. Big shout, but will get nothing for that.

106.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, Razzaq keeping Collingwood quiet here, as the batsman searches for his 150

106.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 1 run, an inside edge tumbles to fine leg and helps Collingwood to his 150.

England 383/4   PD Collingwood 150* (236b 20x4)
107.1

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, on the button, defensive shot results

107.2

108.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

108.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

108.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 3 runs, another one drifted in, but it’s picked up and straight-driven towards the boundary where a sleek one-two on the boundary gets the ball back sharpish.

England 389/4   PD Collingwood 154* (242b 20x4)
109.1

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run

109.2

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, the batsmen think about a single as the ball drops into the midwicket area, but a big call of “No” soon puts paid to that idea

109.3

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run, well beaten by the height, and the ball drifts past the outside edge. Totally misread there by Collingwood, who tried to work it to leg.

109.4

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, 1 run, squirted to leg

109.6

Shahid Afridi to Collingwood, no run

England 391/4   PD Collingwood 155* (247b 20x4)
110.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, ball shoots through at shoulder height, but down the channel outside off; Collingwood isn’t tempted

110.3

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, FOUR, huge outside edge flies through the vacant second slip area and on for four.

110.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

110.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run, steps forward, and out of his crease, to defend. Razzaq pretends to shy at the stumps, by which time the batsman was well back

110.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 1 run, steer to cover

England 397/4   PD Collingwood 160* (252b 21x4)
111.1

112.2

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

112.3

England 403/4   PD Collingwood 166* (260b 22x4)

116.4

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, no run

116.5

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, FOUR, good luck there for Collingwood, who got a huge inside edge which flew through fine leg. Razzaq holds his head, exasperated, as well he might; he’s been bowling well under a cloudless sky with scant reward

116.6

Abdul Razzaq to Collingwood, 1 run, hit on the on-side

England 417/4   PD Collingwood 175* (271b 23x4)

England 426/4   PD Collingwood 179* (285b 23x4)
120.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 wide, and he starts with a wide. Far from chuntering to himself, he’s chuckling away with the man at mid-on in a “what’s going on?” manner

120.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, a foot straighter than the previous ball, but wide enough not to trouble Collingwood

120.2

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 wide, and another wide, down the slope. Gul is bowling from the nursery end, which I ought to have mentioned

120.2

120.3

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, a touch straighter and Collingwood attempts to cut it but he’s nowhere near the ball, which continues to swing away from him

120.4

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, ouch, that’s much better from Gul, finding one to spit disconcertingly on Collingwood who drops his left hand, wisely shielding his face with the bat. Snorter, that was

120.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run

120.6

Umar Gul to Collingwood, 1 no ball, frustrating start for Gul and Pakistan, Gul now scratching at the crease, as it were, ensuring his foot can land securely

120.6

121.4

England 431/4   PD Collingwood 180* (295b 23x4)

124.5

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, through to the wicketkeeper, a rather subdued Kamran Akmal. Touch of swing into the right-hander again

England 435/4   PD Collingwood 183* (306b 23x4)
125.4

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, 1 run, ugly toe-ender from Collingwood there, ball kept low and actually he did rather well to make anything of it, nudging it down to mid-on who somehow fumbled it

126.1

Umar Gul to Collingwood, no run, punched off the back foot

126.2

129.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, no run, well flighted, Collingwood unsure for once whether to go forward or back, punches it away

131.3

Danish Kaneria to Collingwood, OUT, GONE! Brilliant from Kaneria, and he fully deserves it too. Drags Collingwood down the wicket – I think he was done in the flight, and the drift that a legspinner gets – and Kamran Akmal stumped him with consummate ease. End of a very fine innings

PD Collingwood st †Kamran Akmal b Danish Kaneria 186 (440m 327b 23x4 0x6) SR: 56.88
