  England 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal ME Trescothick c & b Mohammad Sami 28 70 59 6 0 47.45
15.6 gone, Sami held on to the return catch at the second time. Trescothick drives on the up, straight back to the bowler and the ball cannons into his chest but he held the rebound. That’s the breakthrough Pakistan needed and Sami flings the ball in the air with aggressive delight - as well he might 67/1
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Younis Khan b Shahid Nazir 36 75 43 5 0 83.72
16.4 a great catch, taken low at second slip, and Pakistan have another breakthrough with the two openers falling in quick succession. Great seam position from Nazir, a pearler and it's all Strauss can do to get the edge on it 67/2
View dismissal AN Cook c & b Umar Gul 23 49 32 4 0 71.87
26.1 gone. A leading edge, trying to work that to square, and Gul takes an easy return catch. A soft dismissal but a jubilant Pakistan deserved that; they have got their man at last. High tens all round.... and that's lunch 110/3
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Shahid Nazir b Mohammad Sami 135 272 169 20 2 79.88
104.4 straight down the ground and straight into the hands of long-off. Pietersen had been getting a bit carried away in that over and finally sends that one high for an easy catch. He just didn't get hold of that one at all, and pays the price. 421/7
View dismissal PD Collingwood c Taufeeq Umar b Umar Gul 31 95 70 2 1 44.28
48.2 slightly quicker bouncer this time, clever bowling and Collingwood fell into the trap. He tried to go aerial with a big hook shot but failed to get hold of it and it flew off the bottom third of his bat and over to the leg-side boundary for a soft, if high, catch 192/4
View dismissal IR Bell b Danish Kaneria 119 267 206 12 0 57.76
111.6 the ball spun in from leg, and Bell hopped backwards, looking to work that one away to the offside but was totally cleaned up by one which stayed low. Kaneria has a wicket at last and he looked to the heavens with relief 445/8
View dismissal CMW Read lbw b Umar Gul 38 92 74 4 1 51.35
87.1 gone, nipped back on him and he stands on the crease, trapped. That would have hit middle-and-off and the batsman can have no complaints about that one. 345/5
View dismissal MJ Hoggard b Umar Gul 0 11 12 0 0 0.00
89.4 cleaned him up with one which pitched full and off stump and the impressive Gul claims a fourth wicket. Hoggard tries to play a forward defence, it took his off stump… and that’s stumps 347/6
View dismissal SI Mahmood b Umar Gul 34 73 45 4 0 75.55
122.6 at last, a yorker, and Mahmood plays all around it. A fine bit of bowling, knocking over Mahmood’s off stump and Gul raises his arms in relief and delight at picking up five wickets 515/10
View dismissal SJ Harmison c Mohammad Sami b Danish Kaneria 36 29 27 4 2 133.33
119.4 outside his leg stump, Harmison takes a huge lunge forward to sweep but can only balloon the ball to short fine-leg to end a really useful and entertaining 36 from Harmison. Another wicket for Kaneria whose luck is finally turning (as are his legbreaks) 501/9

View dismissal Salman Butt run out (Pietersen) 20 66 49 1 0 40.81
14.4 Harmison to Younis Khan, a very risky single and Pietersen flings that one in quickly, underarm, for a direct hit and Salman Butt was well short of his ground running to the striker’s end. A needless dismissal there and Khan must take the blame for calling for that run 36/2
View dismissal Taufeeq Umar c †Read b Hoggard 7 57 38 1 0 18.42
12.6 well well. A straight one from Hoggard inviting the drive and the batsman stretches out to it. The huge edge is snapped up by Read, diving away to his left. 34/1
View dismissal Younis Khan run out (Mahmood) 173 405 285 22 0 60.70
112.2 Collingwood to Inzamam-ul-Haq, silly attempt at a single. A direct hit from Saj Mahmood at midwicket and England think they’ve got their man, celebrating before the third umpire’s decision comes in. And they have, he’s well out, the just the one replay is needed. A sad way for Khan’s glorious innings to come to an end, in the end 447/4
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c †Read b Harmison 192 343 261 25 2 73.56
98.3 GONE! Short, straighter this time and Yousuf fended it off and just got a glove to it. What a brilliant innings from a quite remarkable batsman who receives a standing ovation by all and sundry. Out goes one colossus and in comes the man-mountain and run-machine himself, Inzamam-ul-Haq 399/3
View dismissal Inzamam-ul-Haq* hit wicket b Panesar 26 58 52 5 0 50.00
113.5 fell on to his stumps trying to sweep Panesar. We oughtn’t to laugh but the way Inzamam dived over the stumps and nearly managed to hurdle them was quite comical: his belly took off the stumps as he caved right into them. The crowd immediately began to chant "You fell over! You fell over!" Tell you what, they're right 451/6
View dismissal Faisal Iqbal lbw b Collingwood 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
112.3 England have two in two balls, now, as Collingwood traps Iqbal bang in front. It’s absolutely plumb and that’s Collingwood’s first Test wicket. Iqbal’s bat got trapped in his back pad there, a touch unfortunate for him, but well bowled Collingwood 447/5
View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Trescothick b Mahmood 20 42 38 4 0 52.63
124.4 well bowled Sajid Mahmood, keeping it in the corridor of uncertainty. It bounces on Akmal who flashes at it – a poor stroke – handing Trescothick the simplest of catches at first slip. Finally, Mahmood has a wicket. 481/7
View dismissal Mohammad Sami c Harmison b Panesar 19 50 38 3 0 50.00
127.2 swings lustfully to one just on his leg stump, but he top-edges it to Harmison at fine-leg who took two or three steps back towards the boundary and gobbled the catch in front of his nose. Well deserved, Monty. 489/8
Shahid Nazir not out 13 65 44 0 0 29.54
View dismissal Umar Gul c Panesar b Mahmood 7 14 14 1 0 50.00
130.4 what a catch off a hook which wasn't quite timed properly and sailed high. Great take from Panesar at long leg, tumbling forward and he held it low. That should temporarily silence the critics of Panesar's fielding; he watched that right into his hands, although it must be said he looked mighty relieved when he held it 496/9
View dismissal Danish Kaneria c Trescothick b Panesar 29 39 36 3 1 80.55
141.4 drifted in, turned a touch, beat him in the flight. Kaneria, trying to work that one to leg, got a leading edge and Trescothick takes a sharp chance at first slip, leaning across with his right hand to snatch it bringing the fun to an end. "I should have dropped that!" Trescothick jokes (assuming our resident lipreaders have done their job properly) as England jog off ... because of course he and Strauss will now have to face the odd over at the end of the day, which could prove quite awkward. 538/10

38.4 great catch! Superb, soft-handed take by Salman Butt at second slip as Trescothick, eyeing a juicy short-and-wide gimme for four, cuts it but gets a bottom edge to Butt who takes it low in front of his right foot. Well taken indeed 158/1
View dismissal AJ Strauss* c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 116 250 171 16 0 67.83

View dismissal PD Collingwood b Shahid Nazir 25 82 57 3 0 43.85
72.2 GONE! He’s dragged it on and Pakistan are jubilant. It was a nothing delivery really, hence Pakistan’s delight, outside the off stump and short. But it didn’t rise as much as Collingwood hoped and, off the back foot, he edged it into his stumps 299/6
View dismissal IR Bell c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Sami 4 8 5 1 0 80.00
60.2 Bell is gone too! And it's a great catch from the beleaguered Akmal as well, as he dives low to his left to scoop up an inside-edge – his 100th dismissal in Tests in fact. Bell walks, to his credit, and England are in some disarray as Chris Read comes to the crease. Now then, now then ... here's a pressure situation to test his new batting skills ... 248/5

17.4 the ball pitches just outside off, turns and the batsman bottom edges that one on to his pad where it flies up to Cook short in on the off-side. Panesar deserved that wicket, and he bounds up and down in delight (some may call it a skip): he’d had the batsman in all kinds of bother 52/2

35.2 HE’S BOWLED HIM! It’s a crackerjack rip-snorting jaffa from the Montster! Lands it on middle-and-leg, Younis comes forward, misses, and it turns to hit the top of his off stump, just removing the bail. A remarkable ball, turning out of the rough 112/6

20.3 Mahmood to Younis Khan, what an extraordinary run to be taking there. A disastrous judgement from the batsmen. It was dabbed down behind square so technically it was Yousuf's call and Collingwood with the underarm sling does for Yousuf. Let’s not underestimate what a big blow that is for Pakistan – and, conversely, what a huge boon for England 68/3

24.6 pearler of a delivery, pitches on a good length, rises, and Akmal can only edge that one through to Read as he’s squared up a treat. That’s an easier catch for Read this time, but he still hangs on to it. Pakistan are in tatters here and it’s no wonder Akmal trudges off so slowly. 80/5

47.5 and that’s it, England have won the series with that wicket. That was a sharp stumping by Read to dismiss Inzamam, who was out by some distance, there. Inzamam came charging down the pitch in a final act of defiance. 155/10

36.4 from Harmison, Sami comes forward solidly, pushes out into the covers, Pietersen sprints in from point. Picking it up one-handed and flings it into the stumps to the waiting fielder who whips off the bails, and he’s short.
