View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez b Panesar 31 93 77 4 0 40.25
23.5 54.6 mph, the drop didn't cost anything for England, Panesar bowls the arm ball and Hafeez stays back at the crease and the ball skids through the gap between bat and pad, Hafeez didn't account for the quicker one 61/2
View dismissal Taufeeq Umar b Swann 16 75 48 2 0 33.33
18.3 52.6 mph, Taufeeq had no idea where his off stump was! Lands on the off stump and goes through with the arm, Taufeeq didn't offer a shot and the ball hammered the off stump and dislodged it. Swann did well to keep him guessing just two balls earlier 51/1
View dismissal Azhar Ali b Broad 24 78 68 1 0 35.29
40.2 82.3 mph, fine delivery and got him! Another beauty from Broady, nipping back just enough to beat the inside edge and the attempted drive for Ali, once more the off stump is sent pinging back towards Prior. Its been great length bowling from Broad, drawing the batsman forward and they've been found wanting against the seaming ball, it's only slight movement but it's enough 103/4
View dismissal Younis Khan b Broad 24 44 38 3 0 63.15
36.2 84.3 mph, full and back goes the off stump! Seemed to play all round a ball angled into the pads. Khan was trying to go leg side but got nowhere near it playing across the line, the ball comes off the pad and cannons into off stump, sending it cartwheeling back. It did nip back a touch, very good from Broad 98/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* lbw b Broad 84 227 173 5 4 48.55
95.4 appeal for an lbw and Misbah is reviewing it, lands just a shade outside the off stump and comes back in slightly, Misbah bends forward to defend, the ball sneaks through the gap between pad and bat and hits him just in line with middle and leg, Hawkeye showed that hitting the top of the stump, umpire Davis gave him out and the third umpire confirmed it 257/8
View dismissal Asad Shafiq lbw b Swann 58 130 126 7 1 46.03
78.6 54.1 mph, big sweep attempted and given out lbw. He's gone upstairs but umpires call on review so Shafiq has to go. It was a horrible heave across the line and hit him on the back leg going on to hit the stumps. Shafiq has thrown it away there, got a bit carried away 203/5
View dismissal Adnan Akmal lbw b Broad 9 36 26 2 0 34.61
85.6 that was given out as an lbw, strangely though. There appeared to be an inside edge onto the pads which lobbed straight to Prior, Adnan got forward to defend, the ball was bang in line with the stumps, I think Hot Spot showed a faint edge, need to see another replay of that, sorry. When Adnan walked back, he appeared rather unsure about the mode of dismissal, he had a chat with Misbah but they decided not to refer it 216/6
View dismissal Abdur Rehman b Swann 0 26 7 0 0 0.00
92.1 53.9 mph, the bowling chance works! Three men around the bat to pile on the pressure on the tail-ender, Swann didn't need their assistance because the ball straightened a touch and just shaved the off stump, Rehman came forward but failed to defend it 243/7
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal lbw b Anderson 0 19 14 0 0 0.00
96.1 78.3 mph, England are running through this, full delivery from Anderson angling on middle and leg, Ajmal tries to play him across the line and misses it completely, adjacent to the stumps and Oxenford is convinced 257/9

96.4 79.4 mph, and finally we have a catch! Short of a length and rising up on the batsman, too go for Junaid who failed to keep it down, lobs of the top of the bat and easily taken at second slip 257/10

View dismissal AJ Strauss* c Asad Shafiq b Mohammad Hafeez 11 53 42 1 0 26.19
13.2 53.9 mph, gone, caught at short leg. Strauss uncommitted in his footwork and gets a big inside edge onto his pad that pops up for a simply catch to short leg. No real movement from the delivery but Strauss' uncertainty has cost him. A firm prod forward provides him another failure and the pressure ramps up once more on England's batting... 27/1
View dismissal AN Cook lbw b Saeed Ajmal 94 296 220 10 0 42.72
74.6 the doosra ends Cook's vigil! Bowled from over the wicket, lands on middle and off and straightens to hit middle, Cook fails to cover the line to defend, he doesn't challenge it because he's convinced himself that was hitting the stumps 198/3
View dismissal IJL Trott b Abdur Rehman 74 199 158 7 0 46.83
63.6 55.9 mph, from nowhere Trott's gone. Didn't get forward as he might and a turning ball goes past the outside edge into the top of off stump. Perfect left arm orthodox delivery but Trott's footwork was certainly at fault there. Has he handed Pakistan a way back into the game here? 166/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen c Mohammad Hafeez b Saeed Ajmal 14 57 39 2 0 35.89
78.1 53.5 mph, excellent judgement by the slip catcher Hafeez! Tossed up on the off stump, Pietersen tries to clip it with the turn and gets an inside edge which lobs off the pad and brushes Adnan's glove and Hafeez watches the ball carefully and takes the catch on the fall to his left 203/4
View dismissal IR Bell lbw b Umar Gul 29 109 78 3 0 37.17
100.4 84.1 mph, nipped back in and trapped him on the pads and Bell is reviewing it, landed on a good length and it hit him fairly high on the back leg but within line of the stumps, Oxenford thought that was hitting but Bell wasn't sure, Hawkeye showed that hitting the top of middle, so the umpire's decision stands, England have used up their reviews 268/7
View dismissal EJG Morgan c Mohammad Hafeez b Saeed Ajmal 3 24 22 0 0 13.63
84.5 52.6 mph, 2 balls to go and Morgan succumbs! After bowling a few flatter deliveries Ajmal decides to toss it up a bit more, lands it outside the off stump and Morgan offers a thin edge through to Hafeez at first slip, that's stumps as well 207/5
View dismissal MJ Prior lbw b Saeed Ajmal 3 20 16 0 0 18.75
90.2 57.5 mph, gone Prior was caught on the back foot again and this time given out. It's referred but replays have that hitting leg stump so Prior goes. He had got a little stuck against Ajmal and eventually the chief destroyer has pinned him, turning one past the inside edge and catching him on the knee roll 227/6

28.6 but now out! On the back foot and given out lbw. Referred by Strauss but both where he got it and the ball to the stumps were both umpire's call so the decision stays on the field and the England captain is out. It turned inside Strauss' attempted push and caught him on the knee roll. That was a very tight call from the umpire and I have no doubt that he wouldn't have given it without DRS looming. 56/5

20.4 to Pietersen, the lbw appeal is being reviewed, the arm ball lands on off and middle and goes through towards the middle stump, KP was forward to defend but the ball just sneaked past the bat and hit his pads near the knee roll, Oxenford was convinced, the third umpire was too, Hawkeye showed it clipping the top of the stumps 33/3
20.6 to Morgan, timber! Rehman lands it just outside off and gets it to skid inwards, Morgan went back at the crease and failed to get any bat on it and the ball felled the leg stump 37/4
28.6 to Strauss, but now out! On the back foot and given out lbw. Referred by Strauss but both where he got it and the ball to the stumps were both umpire's call so the decision stays on the field and the England captain is out. It turned inside Strauss' attempted push and caught him on the knee roll. That was a very tight call from the umpire and I have no doubt that he wouldn't have given it without DRS looming. 56/5
34.3 to Trott, 58.2 mph, plumb in front and given out leg before. Playing back, turn past the outside edge, catches him on the knee roll and that's stone dead 68/6
34.5 to Broad, 57.7 mph, that is absolutely superb flighted delivery draws Broad into the drive and it rips back between bat and pad and clatters the off stump. Brilliant. 68/7
36.1 to Anderson, swept, top edge, caught by Gul! And Pakistan have won a brilliant, fantastic Test match...a famous famous win...Gul didn't have to travel far to come in and take a simple catch. Pakistan win by 72 runs 72/10
