View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Broad b Ali 27 85 57 2 0 47.36
19.5 59.5 mph, gadzooks, Hafeez has only gone and done it again! Aggression proves his downfall, as he takes the long handle to Moeen once again, finds a top edge and picks out Broad at midwicket, who pouches the catch and shakes the ball in his hands like a kid with a Christmas present! 49/2
View dismissal Azhar Ali c †Bairstow b Anderson 0 12 7 0 0 0.00
2.3 83.2 mph, back of a length, maybe nips away a touch - and got him, caught behind! Azhar's return is brief and unsuccessful, feeling for the ball in the channel and he's gone for a duck. That's Bairstow's first catch as a keeper in Tests since Sydney 2014 5/1
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c †Bairstow b Broad 38 115 91 5 0 41.75
32.2 84.9 mph, edged and gone! Massive wicket! A bit of lift on a good line, a loose prod too far away from the body, and Malik pays the price for flat-footedness. He had a let-off in the last over when the ball didn't quite carry, but Broad's got his man this time 88/3
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Anderson 31 74 58 4 0 53.44
40.1 81.4 mph, low full toss, on the pads, massive appeal, that looks very out, and up goes the finger! Younis goes for the review but it seems optimistic ... that's plumb! 103/4
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq* c Root b Anderson 71 212 160 7 2 44.37
83.1 82.4 mph, Smartly taken at second slip. Good length and wide outside off, Misbah bites. He hangs his bat out and nicks it with Root stretching to his left, ensuring that Misbah doesn't have another century 224/9
View dismissal Asad Shafiq c †Bairstow b Patel 5 41 35 0 0 14.28
51.1 54.7 mph, Patel finds the outside edge and success. Turn and bounce outside off, leaving Shafiq prodding feebly. Bairstow pouches it smartly and Pakistan find themselves five down 30 minutes before tea 116/5
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c Root b Ali 39 107 76 3 0 51.31
77.1 55.7 mph, Moeen Ali strikes, having Sarfraz holing out to deep midwicket. Pushed through from round the stumps, Sarfraz throws his wicket away. Brain explosion this. He goes for one strike too many. Dances out and drags it into the lap of Joe Root 196/6
View dismissal Wahab Riaz b Patel 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
78.2 54.0 mph, Patel sends Wahab back for a two-ball duck. Patel roars, two wickets in eight balls for Pakistan. Tossed up on a leg-stump line, spins past the crooked prod to tilt the middle stump back 196/7

82.6 82.8 mph, The new ball brings a wicket. Broad lets rip a well-directed short ball. Yasir is in no position for the pull. Skewed to backward square leg off a thick top edge 224/8

37.2 53.1 mph, plays back on leg stump, short leg takes the catch... is there's some bat on this? Yes, says Gaffaney! Cook wasn't moving but he doesn't review either, looks like a small deflection off the inside edge as he tried to glance, on to the pads and into the pouch. Yasir gets his man again 90/2

8.4 51.6 mph, gives it some air, Moeen slogs across the line... and loops a massive top edge to slip! The opening partnership is once again too brief for England's liking, Moeen was walking off as soon as he hit this, as Younis backpedalled a few yards and steadied himself underneath the catch. That was a very ordinary shot 19/1

62.4 53.3 mph, Bell tries to come down the pitch, the ball turns past his bat - and that's got him, stumped! Bell couldn't get near enough to it, Yasir getting the ball to dip and spin and leave him in no-man's land. Huge wicket for Pakistan 139/4

42.1 85.9 mph, Root fishes outside off again... and Sarfraz takes a brilliant low catch! Does he? The umpires are going to check but the replay quickly confirms it went straight into his right mitt - Root is gone! Rahat hits paydirt with a full ball angled across - Kryptonite to England's Superbatsman at No. 4 - and the edge was snaffled half an inch above the turf 97/3

103.4 53.2 mph, skidding on with the arm - bowled 'im! Brilliant stuff from Babar, he steadily tied Bairstow into a knot and then ran him through with the arm ball, he was trying to cut off the back foot but done for pace. Bairstow's gutsy knock comes to grief and the scales tip again 245/6

121.3 53.8 mph, bowled him, that's an absolute jaffa! That's plenty penetrative, far too good for Patel, whose hopes of a maiden Test fifty end with a crash of ash... Well, more of a tickle, actually, as a delightful legbreak pitches outside leg and then judders the top of off. Patel, understandably, befuddled 287/8

88.5 57.2 mph, oh dear, that wasn't very well thought through by the Prof! He's been caught at long-on! Tried to tack Moeen downtown but didn't quite get hold of this one and picked out the waiting fielder... England are battling to stay in this one 257/6
View dismissal Azhar Ali run out (Bell/Rashid) 34 149 115 0 0 29.56
38.1 from Rashid, run out! What a shambolic calamity! Where to start? A drive into the covers, an instant call, a last-minute refusal. Both batsmen at the same end, but the shy is hopeless, midwicket tidies up, Rashid scampers back to the stumps, gathers at the second attempt, and in all that time, Azhar still hasn't made his ground! 101/1
View dismissal Shoaib Malik lbw b Anderson 0 4 1 0 0 0.00
39.1 massive inswinger from Anderson, and Malik is gone for a duck! Sharp reverse swing, maybe that scuff on the concrete was all the ball needed. Malik's bat is barely in the frame, he is so comprehensively pinned in front of all three! 105/2
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Broad 14 53 39 1 0 35.89
50.4 huge appeal! And Oxenford has given Younis lbw after a massive pause for thought! That nipped back a mile, Younis took a huge stride, well outside the line, but there was no stroke offered. The umpire considered his angles, and got it pretty close to spot on. Younis reviews but the top of off was being pinged out of the ground! 146/3

85.1 80.6 mph, trapped him in front, Misbah falls for the bluff! The field had been set up for the short ball, with catchers on the leg side, instead Broad went full and straight and got Pakistan's captain in very similar fashion to the first innings in Dubai, standing in front of all three 245/5

117.3 84.4 mph, nips back and that's castled him, brilliant delivery from Broad!

Broad punches the air in satisfaction/exhaustion and England are one wicket away from setting off on a run chase 354/9

What a huge wicket in the second over of the day! 48/3
27.6 to Bairstow, 52.1 mph, pushed through, Bairstow sweeps and he's hit on the thigh, bang in front! Up goes the finger but he decides to review, this is the definition of blind hope and Hawk-Eye shows it to be thundering into middle stump! Another for Yasir and England are being ruthlessly shredded here 58/5
56.5 to Broad, 52.2 mph, short, Broad sweeps again but the ball bounces on him and he can't keep it down! Square leg snaffles the offering as England sink ever closer to the exit! 138/8
60.3 to Stokes, 50.4 mph, fired down the leg-side, Stokes goes for a wander, Sarfraz gathers and whips off the bails! That is the end of that! 156/10
