    4.2 Ajmal's done it again! Pietersen has been playing like Superman recently but Ajmal, dressed in green, is trickier than Kryptonite. Pietersen tried to sweep on leg stump but could only scoop the ball to short fine leg. He walks off scratching his head 35/1
    9.5 Afridi gets his revenge, Kieswetter caught in the deep! The ball was tossed up outside off and Kieswetter fell victim to a sugar rush, scooping the ball high but not far enough, the catch taken at long-off 79/4
    5.2 and he strikes with his second ball too! The delivery was straight, on a good length and Bopara seemed to misread the line, playing around the ball and being hit on the knee roll. Might have been angling towards leg but there are no reviews in this form of the game so Bopara has to make like a tree and leave 38/2
    6.5 this time he gets the decision! Morgan pushed forward to a length ball, sliding in, played around his pad and although it might have been just outside the line, umpire Raza makes up for his error on the previous delivery 49/3

    15.2 breakthrough for Pakistan, brilliant work from Ajmal and not great from Patel. Was neatly worked to deep square and Patel wanted the second. Ajmal produced a pinpoint throw which hit direct and Patel stretched, but didn't dive, for his crease and ended up a few inches short. 118/5
    17.6 the flip fails again for Buttler. Shapes to flick this over short fine leg but, unlike two days ago, doesn't even make contact. You know the rest 132/6
    18.4 done like kipper. Lovely slower ball and Broad was so early on the shot he was able to turn around and see his stumps broken. 137/7

    0.2 and gone! Fantastic catch at first slip from Pietersen! The delivery pitched on a length outside off, Hafeez swung well away from his body and edged a quick one through to the cordon 0/1
    5.5 holes out to mid-off - that, thankfully, puts Zia out of his misery. That was a shocking innings, really gruelling to watch as Zia tried to force slog after slog. He finally got bat on ball but only succeeded in dolly-ing it to the fielder 32/4
    1.2 Dernbach takes a sharp catch off his own bowling to remove Shafiq! The batsman drove hard through the ball but straight back at the bowler, who clung on. Another slick bit of fielding and England are rampant (well, almost)! 2/2
    4.2 slaps hard through the off side ... what a catch! Umar used his feet again, teeing off with a wristy cut but he picked out Morgan, who's terrific at point, and he snaffled it up for breakfast. The swashbuckling Umar perishes in unfortunate fashion 30/3
    8.4 another one gone! Pakistan's innings is in tatters here. Swann, as ever, gave the ball some air, Malik tried to lift the ball over midwicket but got under it and picked out Bairstow running in from the boundary 50/5
    12.1 what a catch! Bairstow at deep midwicket plucks out a low grab as Misbah tried to match Afridi and go over deep midwicket. He ran in from the boundary and grasped it inches off the turf 74/6
    18.2 gone! Job done by England. Afridi tries to launch a good-length delivery over the leg side and it skews high into the off side where Morgan, running from backward point, holds a good catch. Boy, England have fielded well tonight. 112/10
    15.3 gone! And another stunning catch. Azam sent this miles into the night sky and Buttler has ages to think about things at long-off. These are tough to take, and he almost misjudges it then takes it tumbling backwards. 98/7
    16.4 that's finished that. Finn gambles with another short one, Gul tries to repeat the earlier shot of short fine leg but gets a top edge that flies straight up. Kieswetter trotted around and took it easily. 111/8
    16.6 sharp work from Finn. Started with a good yorker which Afridi struggled to dig out, the ball rolled towards Finn in his follow through and he swooped to thrown down the stumps to leave Ajmal well short. Hmm, did Finn have a little push at Ajmal there after completing the run out? 111/9
