    5.4 pulled out into the leg side and caught right on the rope! Straight to the man on the boundary, couldn't have been picked out any better! A yard either side and it was another maximum but Afridi has struck a major blow for Pakistan 48/1
    6.6 bowled him! Kieswetter trying to step away but almost got too far away from the stumps and got bowled, missed an attempted cut, it runs onto the bails and Pakistan strike again 51/2

    15.5 and Gul finds a way through! Bowled him, neck and crop! Bopara moved across his stumps and was defeated by a vicious, leg-stump yorker that may just have shattered England's chances 113/4
    12.2 and this time gottim! A heavy blow for England, who lose the top-ranked batsman in the format to another wily Hafeez delivery. It was maybe a touch quicker, full in length and the ball flew through Morgan as he shaped for an expansive drive 80/3

    17.2 another for Gul! Necessity is the mother of Buttler's downfall here, the Somerset man stepping outside off and angling his bat, attempting to bounce it over the infield using the pace of the ball ... but it was a slow delivery and Buttler couldn't clear short fine leg standing inside the ring 121/5
    17.3 full, swinging in and gone! Patel shuffled across, wafted a bat outside the line and was hit on the full, directly in front of off. That was a wicked delivery, ducking inside Patel's attempted stroke. And Gul's on a hat-trick 121/6
