Umar Gul to Swann, no run, shapes away from the right-hander and Swann leaves it


Umar Gul to Swann, no run, away movement again and Swann opts to leave it alone

England 268/7   GP Swann 0* (2b)

Umar Gul to Swann, 1 run, punched towards cover and the fielder does well to fall to his right and save it but can't prevent the single though


Umar Gul to Swann, FOUR, that's well played by Swann, bangs it in short but it sits up nicely for Swann to club it in front of square on the on side, the fielder in the deep had no chance


Umar Gul to Swann, 1 run, clips it off his pads down to deep square leg

England 277/7   GP Swann 6* (5b 1x4)

Junaid Khan to Swann, FOUR, stands tall and he punches it elegantly through the off side wide of cover point, he makes good use of the width


Junaid Khan to Swann, FOUR, Swann's started his own little party here, Junaid grants him even more width this time and Swann forces it off the back foot down to deep extra cover


Junaid Khan to Swann, 1 run, too late on the pull, he mistimes it to the on side, Atherton on commentary : "spin, spin, spin. Where are the spinners?"

England 288/7   GP Swann 15* (8b 3x4)

Saeed Ajmal to Swann, no run, goes back and softly tucks it to short leg


Saeed Ajmal to Swann, 1 bye, Swann decides to pull off the reverse sweep and misses it completely! He was lucky the extra turn took it past the leg stump, it's one of those shots which can make you want to dig a hole and fall into it if it doesn't come off

England 291/7   GP Swann 15* (10b 3x4)

Abdur Rehman to Swann, no run, this one fizzes and bounces and nearly dashes the off stump! How close was that?


Abdur Rehman to Swann, no run, hits his pads outside the line of leg and rolls away


Abdur Rehman to Swann, no run, turns and grips the surface again, Swann nearly edged this one too


Abdur Rehman to Swann, no run, he chips it in the air and it just drops short of Younis who dives forward at short midwicket


Abdur Rehman to Swann, OUT, pretty straightforward, Rehman bowls the straighter one and lands it bang in line of middle stump, straightens and thuds his pads as he gets forward to defend, easy for Steve Davis, Rehman being rewarded for a fine, testing over

GP Swann lbw b Abdur Rehman 15 (26m 15b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
