    28.6 but now out! On the back foot and given out lbw. Referred by Strauss but both where he got it and the ball to the stumps were both umpire's call so the decision stays on the field and the England captain is out. It turned inside Strauss' attempted push and caught him on the knee roll. That was a very tight call from the umpire and I have no doubt that he wouldn't have given it without DRS looming. 56/5
    14.6 soft dismissal! Hafeez tosses it up on middle and leg, Cook tries to turn it to the on side and gets an leading edge which lobs towards the bowler, he dives forward and takes the catch inches off the ground 21/1
    17.1 it rolls onto his stumps would you believe it! Bell stays back to a delivery which straightened, he tried defending it with very soft hands and the ball spun backwards, rolled between his legs and hit the base of the stumps 26/2
    20.4 the lbw appeal is being reviewed, the arm ball lands on off and middle and goes through towards the middle stump, KP was forward to defend but the ball just sneaked past the bat and hit his pads near the knee roll, Oxenford was convinced, the third umpire was too, Hawkeye showed it clipping the top of the stumps 33/3
    20.6 timber! Rehman lands it just outside off and gets it to skid inwards, Morgan went back at the crease and failed to get any bat on it and the ball felled the leg stump 37/4
    35.6 Prior goes now, trying to have a go. Pushing away from his body and just chipped a catch to cover. 100 Test match wickets for Ajmal...thoroughly deserved 72/9
    34.3 plumb in front and given out leg before. Playing back, turn past the outside edge, catches him on the knee roll and that's stone dead 68/6
    34.5 that is absolutely superb flighted delivery draws Broad into the drive and it rips back between bat and pad and clatters the off stump. Brilliant. 68/7
    35.4 another one. Playing back, playing back, playing back. That's all you need to know really. Off spinner past the inside edge, caught on the crease, plumb once more... 71/8
    36.1 swept, top edge, caught by Gul! And Pakistan have won a brilliant, fantastic Test match...a famous famous win...Gul didn't have to travel far to come in and take a simple catch. Pakistan win by 72 runs 72/10
