    14.4 Anderson strikes! Farhat battled hard all morning but this time he pushed fatally outside off stump, it was the inswinger, perhaps that's what drew Farhat into playing, but he could only get a thick edge that flew to Andrew Strauss at first slip who made no mistake 31/4
    3.1 oh dear, poor shot from Butt and he's been very smartly taken by Collingwood at third slip! Short from Broad but not quite wide enough for Butt to cut, he ended up top edging and it flew quickly to Collingwood who made absolutely no mistake. 10/1
    3.3 gone, Broad has two and Pakistan are in real trouble! It was full, straight and burst through Ali's defences to trap him on the pad bang in front of the stumps. Tony Hill had no hesitation... Ali asks for the referral and it shows it just clipping the top of leg stump so the decision stands! 10/2
    4.1 Another one gone! Full and swinging into the left hander, Amin played around his front pad and missed it entirely. It struck him in front of leg stump and was given out. Amin thought long about referring but rightly opted not to. England on fire here! 11/3
    17.4 gone this time! Aamer's vigil ends. Finn went much fuller, inviting a drive and this time Aamer couldn't resist. In the end it flew off a thickish outside edge low to Pietersen in the gully who took the chance easily 41/6
    16.6 ooh! Umar looks in trouble here! Hooping inswinger that came back very late and crashed into the pads as he tried to get forward to defend, it looked in front and he was given out but chose to refer, replays confirm the bad news for him though and he as to go. Pakistan are in all kinds of trouble now. Horrid scorecard 37/5
    26.4 Anderson has 10 for the match! And what a great delivery to bring up that milestone! It's angled in, fullish length and swinging away late - the perfect ball - and Malik tries to turn the ball through leg, only to get a leading edge to Collingwood at third slip 65/9
    19.1 Kamran has gone! He bags a pair. What a miserable Test he's had. It was shortish but didn't bounce at all, Kamran aimed to swing away a pull shot but it burrowed under the bat and struck him close to leg stump. Tony Hill gave him out, Kamran wasn't happy but his brother used up the last referral so he had no choice but to go. 41/7
    20.5 another one goes! And that's a super sharp catch from Collingwood at third slip, Gul drove hard at a fullish outswinger and a thick edge flew hard and high through the cordon, Collingwood snatched the chance above his head 50/8
