View dismissal Kamran Akmal c Swann b Bresnan 11 6 10 2 0 110.00
1.4 83.9 mph, top-edged pull, a steepling chance to mid-on and Kamran falls! Deja vu from his dismissal in the first game, the ball, the shot and the result are all the same! 11/1
View dismissal Shahzaib Hasan c †Davies b Broad 3 19 8 0 0 37.50
4.2 88.3 mph, another bouncer from Broad, and this time he's got the wicket! Shahzaib tried to get across to the off side and hook to fine leg, but the ball was simply too quick for him, kissing the glove on the way through to the keeper 20/3
View dismissal Mohammad Yousuf c Bopara b Bresnan 4 4 6 0 0 66.66
3.2 85.9 mph, bouncer from Bresnan, and it's pulled ... but straight to Bopara at deep square leg! Again he picked up the length early, deliberately pulled the ball in the air but just couldn't get the connection he was hoping for. Pakistan wobble... 18/2
View dismissal Umar Akmal b Swann 17 25 13 0 2 130.76
10.3 46.7 mph, great stuff from Swann, what a response! Cool as you like. Having watched the last disappear over his head Swann throws this up much slower, a touch wider, Umar runs at it and hacks wildly, only for the ball to spin back and crash into the stumps, Swann smiles wryly, knowing he's out-thought the youngster 44/5
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Morgan b Broad 2 1 4 0 0 50.00
4.6 90.8 mph, another one goes, and this is a big blow for Pakistan! Back of a length from Broad, and the ball is met with a wild, baseball-style swipe from Afridi. It's unclear where he was trying to hit that, but the ball takes a thick top edge and goes straight up. Morgan gets easily underneath it and he's not going to drop that! Pakistan in real trouble now 22/4
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez run out (Sidebottom/Swann) 14 30 32 1 0 43.75
14.1 from Swann, another gone, run out by a distance here, Hafeez looked for a reverse-sweep, failed to connect and it came off his body towards Sidebottom at short fine leg, Razzaq called him through for a single but Hafeez took an age to reach the bowler's end and Sidebottom's throw came in quick enough to Swann to do the rest 55/6
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c Yardy b Sidebottom 11 31 20 1 0 55.00
17.4 72.5 mph, another falls, slower ball from Sidebottom who manages a smile now, Razzaq tried to slug this over deep midwicket but could only find a top edge that looped towards slip 85/8
View dismissal Fawad Alam c †Davies b Swann 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
14.3 52.0 mph, Swann may thank Broad after all! Alam gone first ball trying to cut off the back foot, touch of spin, gets a faint outside edge and Davies clings on. Absolute procession here 56/7
View dismissal Umar Gul c Bopara b Sidebottom 16 18 13 1 1 123.07
17.5 71.6 mph, Two in two! Another wicket for Sidebottom, who's smile is even broader now. Slower-ball bouncer once more, Gul tried to pull it away but could only manage a top edge that looped towards deep square where Bopara ran in and slid on his knees to pouch the catch 85/9
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar b Bresnan 4 2 4 1 0 100.00
18.4 86.9 mph, that is that. All over. Abject effort from Pakistan ends with Shoaib backing away and missing a full toss that crashes into middle stump. England will need 90 to win 89/10

View dismissal C Kieswetter run out (Umar Akmal) 16 14 10 2 1 160.00
2.4 Shoaib Akhtar to Bopara, two wickets in two balls, again Umar is involved! Kieswetter is run out at the non-striker's end! Bopara punched his first ball - full, outside off - straight to Umar at backward point and immediately called "no!" but his partner was halfway down the track. The throw was on target and he's a good few inches short! 26/2
View dismissal SM Davies c Umar Akmal b Shoaib Akhtar 9 12 6 1 0 150.00
2.3 89.7 mph, and the change of angle works straight away! It was a length delivery - nothing that special about it - and Davies tried to nudge him into the leg side. The ball just seemed to stick in the wicket and pop up, he played too early at it and gave Umar the simplest of catches 26/1
View dismissal RS Bopara lbw b Shahid Afridi 12 33 24 1 0 50.00
10.6 61.1 mph, gone this time! Fair to say Bopara never looked remotely happy out there, another short ball here but much quicker, trapping Bopara on the thigh as he looked to pull and though it looked to be going over, he's given out 63/4
View dismissal PD Collingwood* c Mohammad Hafeez b Saeed Ajmal 21 24 25 0 1 84.00
9.3 54.1 mph, edged, and a tumbling Hafeez at slip gratefully accepts the chance! It was the doosra again for sure, landing on the perfect spot as Collingwood pushed forward with no great certainty. A wicket for Ajmal, but is it too late for Pakistan? 57/3
