    4.3 top catch! That was very well taken at long on. Kieswetter looked to have struck it cleanly but it didn't quite have the legs. Shoaib Malik ran around the boundary then took it sliding on his knees near the rope 29/1
    5.4 gone! Cheema deserved that for a probing spell. Bopara drove and got a thick edge which Umar Akmal took sharply diving to his right. He's dropped easier ones than that 37/2
    9.4 slapped to extra cover, a misfield, and trouble...Morgan run out. Pietersen took three steps down the wicket and then sent Morgan back and he was stranded, no need for the third umpire 62/3
    12.2 this offie gets past the attempted cut and takes out off stump. So no young-gunning from Jonny Boy today, backing away once more, trying to cut and done by one that squirts under the bat and onto off stump 72/4
    15.4 fired in full and quicker and Buttler tries to sweep and misses, struck low on the pad and given out leg before as Buttler falls over, another slightly ungainly ending for the young lad 89/5
    17.5 but gone this time coming down the track and swinging and missing, easy stumping that my mother could have completed, so even a gimmie for Akmal 109/6

    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
