Sidebottom to Imran Farhat, FOUR, fortunate for Farhat, another flat-footed loose drive outside off, finds a thick edge past the second slip for a boundary

Pakistan 5/0   Imran Farhat 4* (3b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 0.5-0-4-0

Bresnan to Imran Farhat, FOUR, lovely shot this, walked inside the line and flicked it past the short fine leg for four

Pakistan 16/1   Imran Farhat 10* (10b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 1.3-0-8-0

Bresnan to Imran Farhat, FOUR, another one! Fuller delivery this time and Farhat flicked handsomely for boundary to deep square

Pakistan 20/1   Imran Farhat 14* (11b 3x4)   TT Bresnan 1.4-0-12-0

Bresnan to Umar Akmal, FOUR, unlucky for Bresnan, pitches a good yorker but it's squeezed out by Akmal down to third man, Sidebottom hurls himself across the turf with no elegance at all, and can't save a much-needed boundary

Pakistan 38/3   Umar Akmal 13* (11b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 3-0-22-0

Swann to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, lovely shot, good use of the feet and chipped away of deep midwicket for a welcome boundary

Pakistan 52/4   Shoaib Malik 13* (11b 1x4)   GP Swann 1.1-0-8-1

Wright to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, that's a wonderful shot, it almost took out the non-striker as Malik drilled a drive straight down the ground and long on had no chance of stopping it...Alam ended up flat on the ground

Pakistan 81/4   Shoaib Malik 29* (24b 2x4)   LJ Wright 3.5-0-23-1

Wright to Shoaib Malik, FOUR, beautiful batting, steps across outside off and flicks this delivery down through short fine-leg...Wright had adjusted his line, but Malik adjusted his shot even better.

Pakistan 85/4   Shoaib Malik 33* (25b 3x4)   LJ Wright 4-0-27-1

Broad to Abdul Razzaq, FOUR, cracking shot, power and placement from Razzaq as he gives himself room outside leg stump to drive this over cover and it easily beats the sweeper

Pakistan 111/6   Abdul Razzaq 18* (12b 1x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 4-0-23-2

Bresnan to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, lovely stuff from Sarfraz, he has the confidence to go down on one knee and sweep the pace bowler - it was 83mph - past short fine-leg...that takes balls, and skill

Pakistan 115/6   Sarfraz Ahmed 5* (3b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 3.1-0-26-0

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

Pakistan 123/8   Yasir Arafat 4* (2b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 3.2-0-15-0

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

Pakistan 129/8   Yasir Arafat 9* (4b 2x4)   RJ Sidebottom 4-0-21-0
