Sidebottom to Yasir Arafat, no run, beaten by another slower ball outside off...England have shown how to bowl on this surface

Sidebottom to Yasir Arafat, FOUR, top shot, full and driven straight down the ground with perfect placement to bisect long off and long on...much-needed for Pakistan

19.3

Sidebottom to Yasir Arafat, 1 run, goes short again, a bottom edge rolls past the keeper

19.6

Sidebottom to Yasir Arafat, FOUR, it's a boundary, good away for Pakistan to finish as he backs away and places a short ball between the backward point and short third man
