View dismissal Imran Nazir c Denly b Broad 2 13 15 0 0 13.33
3.4 well, third time unlucky. Another shortish ball, another ugly swipe, finds the top edge and sails comfortably to Denly at deep square-leg. The bowling change worked and Nazir seemed to get frustrated very quickly. 9/1
View dismissal Imran Farhat run out (Pietersen) 14 18 13 3 0 107.69
4.6 from Bresnan, well, it looked like an easy single, as it was pushed off the back foot to Pietersen, who swiftly fielded and under-armed it on to the stumps at the non-strikers end. Very smart work from Pietersen, seemed to surprise everyone 20/2
View dismissal Khalid Latif c †Prior b Wright 4 11 6 0 0 66.66
6.2 Wright strikes! And the bowling change has worked again. Fullish ball and Latif has a firm-footed swish outside off stump and edges it through to Prior 26/3
View dismissal Umar Akmal c Broad b Swann 13 17 12 1 0 108.33
8.3 oh great catch! Swann strikes and Umar has gone! Just outside off stump, Umar flashes a cut and Broad flies from short-third man to his left and plucks it out of the air at full stretch. Swann the first-over king strikes again in his first over 39/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik* c Collingwood b Swann 33 32 26 3 0 126.92
14.2 another one goes, and Swann strikes in the first over of a spell again, as Malik chips limply to midwicket to bring a soft end to a promising innings 86/5
View dismissal Fawad Alam c †Prior b Broad 23 37 23 0 1 100.00
17.3 gone, Broad gets another wicket with a short ball as Alam gets a thin top edge through to Prior...he'd played a useful hand, but England keep chipping away 106/6
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Broad b Bresnan 22 18 15 1 1 146.66
18.6 well, England's planning is certainly working tonight, another slower-ball short delivery, Razzaq backs away and tries to guide it past third man but Broad dives forward and takes another good catch 119/8
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c Broad b Bresnan 5 3 5 1 0 100.00
18.3 a wicket with a short, wide ball that hardly deserved it, but that's Twenty20...Sarfraz saw width and guided it straight to third man as though giving catching practice 115/7

18.6 to Abdul Razzaq, well, England's planning is certainly working tonight, another slower-ball short delivery, Razzaq backs away and tries to guide it past third man but Broad dives forward and takes another good catch 119/8

View dismissal IJL Trott b Abdul Razzaq 4 13 10 0 0 40.00
2.4 Trott's gone! Razzaq strikes! Good tight line outside off, Trott plays a bit of a nothing shot trying to guide it down to third man, only ends up inside-edging on to off stump 10/2
View dismissal JL Denly c Imran Farhat b Yasir Arafat 1 8 3 0 0 33.33
1.5 ideal for Pakistan as Denly fails again! Tries to force it straight back down the ground but gets an inside edge that shoots straight to the short-midwicket fielder. Almost paid the price for trying to be too technically correct. 7/1

4.2 Abdul Razzaq to Pietersen, Gone! Collingwood departs and Pakistan are on fire! Pietersen clipped it neatly towards the deep midwicket region, Collingwood called for a second but the throw came in to the bowlers end and, despite a dive, he wasn't back in time 18/3
