    15.2 the breakthrough England needed! It was a tame dismissal, Hafeez mistiming an on drive straight to Jonathan Trott at midwicket. He took a straightforward catch at head height and Jimmy has his first wicket of the series. No need for assistance from the dew if the batsman are going do that ... 61/1
    21.2 slower ball, lbw appeal ... but with Farhat dawdling halfway down the wicket, Broad swoops on the loose ball and underarms into the stumps! It had struck the left-hander outside leg stump but he seemed distracted by the appeal and Broad was quick to seize the chance. Not that we saw a lot of it, as the cameras focused on Dharmasena shaking his head ... 92/2
    32.5 misses a straight one and off stump is pegged back! Azhar played back, trying to give himself room to cut through point but it hurried on to him and rattled into the wicket. Samit strikes again! England seize the advantage once again 142/4
    24.1 on middle and leg, straightens and hits the pad ... out! Is he going to review? No! Patel's golden arm strikes again - as with Misbah and Malik in the first ODI, there was nothing that special about the delivery but it was on target and Younis played around his pad. Samit has tipped the scales (no sniggering) for England ... 104/3
    47.1 oh what a take! Kieswetter takes an absolute pearler running back behind him to remove Misbah and Pakistan's last hope. Misbah tried to swing a full Broad ball to leg, got a big top edge, it whirled behind the keeper who raced back and was nowhere near it but at the last moment, dived full length to his left to make the grab with both hands. An absolutely fantastic bit of work from Kieswetter and that should win England this game 217/8
    38.5 slapped to cover and caught! A very sharp catch low down by Patel. They went upstairs to check but it looked pretty straightforward that it was a clean catch...certainly Patel was totally convinced he'd caught it. It was a length ball on middle, Akmal gave himself room to cut into the off side and he found the fielder 179/5
    44.2 swing and a miss and Anderson strikes middle and off, that's a pretty miserable end for Afridi, looking to heave into the leg side, missed by a long way. There really was no need for that just yet...he's handed the initiative back to England after a great previous over 207/6
    46.6 full, another swing, back goes the off stump and this time Rehman's torturous innings is ended. He tried another heave to leg and is put out of his misery, missing by miles. That has just eaten up deliveries and potentially handed the game to England 217/7
    48.1 full, missed, lbw and this game is all but over. A quick, straight delivery is too good for Gul, a great yorker right up there, Gul missed and that would have cannoned leg stump 222/9
    not out
    48.6 swing and a miss, Cheema bowled and England win by 20 runs. A length ball, a real tailender's swipe across the line and the stumps pinged back 230/10
