    7.2 length, played across the line, a huge cry for leg before and given out after an age. Deary me did the umpire take his time! But up goes the finger, replays suggest it pitched outside leg, even thought it spun sharply and probably hitting leg stump 48/2
    1.1 length and chipped back to the bowler and taken! Hafeez falls first ball! Simply popping a straight ball back to Dernbach who took the catch easily at shoulder height to his left 8/1
    12.1 worked into the leg side and they try to scramble a second but the dive is short. It was great work from Kieswetter who had to take the ball a long way away from the stumps but got the ball back with quick hands to run Shafiq out 76/3
    19.6 bowled him!! A slower ball out of the back of the hand, Misbah swings and missed and loses his leg stump. England win by five runs, an absolute thriller of a game! 124/6
    18.3 smashed straight up in the air and taken at long off. Another ball outside off, heave into the air and well taken by Swann out of the desert sky 113/4
    19.2 slapped down to long on, the through comes back to the keeper's end, gone!! Afridi is run out trying to come back for the second, a fantastic flat, quick return to Kieswetter who again did brilliantly get the ball back onto the stumps 120/5
