    46.2 slider and Cook tries to sweep and misses, losing his leg stump. Pushed through quicker, the sweep has served Cook very well today but this time he got his front pad inside the line and it skidded past the pad into leg stump 230/6
    12.4 he's gone! Afridi skids one straight through Pietersen's defences and the England man's comeback as an opener is over. He was caught half-forward and the ball straightened to clatter into off stump 57/1
    12.5 two in two! This time, from wide on the crease, Afridi angles a quicker delivery past Trott's lazy, attempted cover drive and the bails go flying once again! Looked like the googly, the way it came back at Trott 57/2
    37.2 out charges Ravi and off come the bails! Bit of a Coldplay moment there, but you can hardly expect England to bat through a Powerplay without at least one rush of blood to the head. He skipped out, played around a legside delivery and not even an Akmal couldn't muck that one up 188/3
    39.3 hits the pad as Morgan misses with a reverse sweep and given out. Morgan goes for the review ... maybe on height, maybe because he thought it was going down leg. But it was doing neither and umpire Taufel raises his finger for the second time. Morgan's UAE struggles continue, then. 196/4
    44.5 straight up and caught. Kieswetter tried to give himself room to slog sweep outside leg but can only get a big top edge straight up in the air, easily taken from short third man 221/5

    46.5 caught and bowled a fine take down low. Pushed through quicker again, Broad goes to drive, does so firmly and in the air back to Ajmal who bags the chance with two hands and claims another five-for against England 232/7

    2.1 Finn strikes early, beating Hafeez's chop and thumping into his pads. He was stuck on his crease and though he thought about reviewing, that looked pretty plumb 11/1
    8.5 is that four for Finn? It is! That was unplayable, a silent assassin of a delivery that landed on middlle and screamed across Farhat's tentative push, taking a faint nick on its way through to Kieswetter. That was such a good ball, Farhat was unlucky to get anything on it! 40/4
    2.2 and another one! A similar ball, a touch fuller, seaming back into Shafiq's front pad. The bat was nowhere near the ball and he was rooted right in front of middle and off. Finn has started like a train! 11/2
    6.5 gone - and that could be a crucial dismissal! And what a catch from Kieswetter! Finn perservered on that line outside off and again succeeded in bringing the ball back a wee bit ... Younis played slightly away from his front pad, snicked through and Kieswetter claimed to ball whilst diving full stretch to his left. 27/3
    14.4 oh gone! Patel has slid one past the inside edge, onto the back pad and the Pakistan captain has to go, lbw again! It was a regulation full length ball on middle and off and quite simply, Misbah has missed it completely. A very surreal dismissal. The TV commentators assumed their was some bat involved and Misbah would refer but not to be. He's plumb and gone. 53/5
    25.5 ah, now he'll be a bit chirpier. An arm ball (or maybe one that just doesn't turn) goes past Umar's outside edge and Kieswetter whips off bails. Umpire Ahsan Raza doesn't need a replay, he was that far out of his crease ... Oh, Umar! 96/7
    20.2 that's a shocker! Malik has a yahoo at a full-bunger and completely mistimes it, the ball looping gently to the man standing at mid-on. I think it hit the toe end of the bat - pressure telling there, and Patel has spooked another. 68/6
    26.4 the party's over for Afridi, who slaps a slog straight to long-off. It went flat and hard but was a comfortable enough catch. We all know Afridi has a big sword - and there he died by it. 109/8
    29.1 the end is nigh ... Gul again plays around a delivery turning into him. He goes for the review ... but this time it hit him just in line with off stump and there's no reprieve. England, quite remarkably, are on the brink of a crushing victory. 113/9
    34.6 thank you! Ajmal top edges a pull and captain Cook runs around from mid-on to claim the catch at mid-off, almost colliding with a team-mate in the process. The last-wicket malingering comes to an end after 17 runs in almost six overs and England have won. Hark at that! 130/10
