  Pakistan innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal Kamran Akmal b Bresnan 5 9 13 1 0 38.46
2.4 86.1 mph, Kamran falls this time! Big breakthrough and Kamran is unlucky to go. Shades of Michael Vaughan's Trent Bridge dismissal against India in 2008 - nothing delivery down the leg side, clips the thigh pad and deflects on to leg stump. 8/2
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c †Davies b Anderson 1 6 3 0 0 33.33
1.6 84.5 mph, Anderson strikes! What a delivery it was too! Fullish, pitching and jagging away sharply to turn Hafeez around, squaring him up, clipping a fine outside edge and Davies holds on! 8/1
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c Morgan b Swann 40 93 59 4 0 67.79
24.2 50.1 mph, gone this time! Tossed up again by Swann but Shafiq couldn't resist going for the big drive. He skipped down the wicket without quite reaching it and ended up lifting it with no great power or timing straight to Eoin Morgan who was in from the long-off boundary. Smart bowling and it brings an end to a very promising innings 95/4
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf lbw b Anderson 16 21 22 1 0 72.72
9.1 83.4 mph, Anderson strikes again! Nip-backer does for Yousuf! The batsman was unhappy but replays show it clipping the bails. He walked across his stumps looking initially to run it down to third man but it jagged back and Yousuf couldn't get his bat down in time. Top bowling from Anderson! 31/3
View dismissal Fawad Alam c Strauss b Yardy 64 115 86 3 0 74.41
38.2 53.0 mph, chipped again, but out this time! Yardy held this one back a bit, Alam tried to drive through the off side but drove it uppishly and straight to Strauss who stuck his hands up above his head to snatch the ball out of the air 181/6
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Swann b Bresnan 14 16 20 0 0 70.00
29.5 84.4 mph, oh dear, awful shot. Banged in short and Umar raced down the wicket and tried to hook this out the ground, got cramped as he tried to play the shot, ended up top-edging straight to fine leg. Good work from Bresnan, that's why he was the one to watch! 121/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* run out (Swann) 34 38 29 3 1 117.24
39.1 Broad to Abdul Razzaq, full on the pads, inside edge onto the front leg and they take a single ... Now what has happened here? A throw was fired in, came off Afridi's bat, which was left raised and this looks out! He's gone, run out. Tragedy for Pakistan. Afridi was actually easily home but he didn't ground his bat. Another wicket falls, and they're struggling now 185/7
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Anderson b Broad 31 37 24 3 1 129.16
46.3 73.8 mph, all over now! Razzaq departs smashing a slower-ball bouncer out to Anderson at cow corner, who dives forward to collect smartly 227/8
View dismissal Umar Gul b Bresnan 14 46 32 1 0 43.75
49.4 65.5 mph, all over now. Slower ball, Gul down on one knee trying to dink a sweep shot, but he misses and it crashes into middle stump. 241/10
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal lbw b Anderson 2 1 3 0 0 66.66
47.3 71.0 mph, this is out though! Very out indeed! Full and straight, Ajmal plays all around it and it struck bang in front. Three wickets for Anderson, he's bowled excellently today 234/9

View dismissal AJ Strauss* b Umar Gul 57 83 54 8 0 105.55
18.2 86.0 mph, gone, Gul strikes and what a strike! Full and nips back, gets the inside edge and clatters into off stump! Strauss departs and England in trouble now! 95/4
View dismissal SM Davies b Abdul Razzaq 18 24 18 3 0 100.00
5.6 80.0 mph, Davies' stumps are shattered! Razzaq nips another one back in off the seam, Davies leaves a huge gap between bat and pad as he swishes, crease-bound, and has his off stump pegged back. First strike for Pakistan! 35/1
View dismissal IJL Trott b Shoaib Akhtar 2 11 10 0 0 20.00
8.6 87.7 mph, what a ball! Unplayable yorker! Shoaib found a hint of inswing earlier in this over, and this has swung and dipped under Trott's bat, clattering into the stumps. Inswinging yorker at round about 90mph, and Trott departs! Shoaib's still got it... 42/2
View dismissal RS Bopara c †Kamran Akmal b Saeed Ajmal 7 23 15 1 0 46.66
13.6 57.7 mph, Bopara departs! Ajmal is a dangerous bowler and Bopara flashed an off drive, but could only get a faint edge through to Kamran Akmal, who held on gleefully! 77/3
View dismissal EJG Morgan c sub (Wahab Riaz) b Umar Gul 61 105 74 6 0 82.43
38.1 82.6 mph, Morgan's gifted his wicket away! Nothing delivery on leg stump and Morgan flicked it straight to deep square leg, great bonus for Pakistan and they are right back in the game now! 201/6
View dismissal MH Yardy lbw b Umar Gul 4 12 9 0 0 44.44
20.5 87.1 mph, that's out! Gul nips one back in to Yardy's pads to strike him dead infront of his stumps. That looked plumb the moment it hit him, and Gul is celebrating again! Pakistan are edging ahead in this contest now, but as has happened so often recently Morgan's wicket is the key 103/5
LJ Wright not out 48 109 66 4 0 72.72
View dismissal TT Bresnan b Umar Gul 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
38.4 85.9 mph, Gul strikes, off stump cartwheeling! What a strike! Pitched and came back in, bursting through the defences to send off stump flying out the ground! 201/7
View dismissal SCJ Broad b Umar Gul 4 10 7 0 0 57.14
40.5 85.8 mph, gone! Gul cleans Broad up to give him a five-for! What a delivery! Full and swinging in and flattening middle stump! Pakistan nearing victory now! 207/8
View dismissal GP Swann c Shahid Afridi b Umar Gul 0 6 8 0 0 0.00
42.6 85.6 mph, gone! Gul strikes with the last ball of his spell to remove Swann! That's a career-best for Gul! Not a great delivery but Pakistan won't care, full half-volley that Swann stroked straight to Afridi at short extra cover. What a sensational spell of bowling and it's gone a long, long way to giving Pakistani fans some much-needed joy! 211/9

45.4 77.5 mph, Razzaq strikes! Stumps flying and Pakistan have won! Fielders jumping around everywhere, what a result! What a performance, Pakistan love it at The Oval!
