    11.3 gone! England really needed that! Farhat is dismissed trying to smash a sweep shot, he missed it and it thudded into his pad bang in front. He asks for a review but it only confirms the worst 57/2
    0.5 gone! Early strike for England, Hameed pushes hard outside off stump and sends a thick edge to second slip where Graeme Swann holds the chance at the second attempt. Boy, that almost slipped out and he did very well to compose himself and grab the rebound 5/1
    21.2 gone now! Swann is just about keeping England above water. Butt has played very well today for 48 and here he just popped forward to defend but it spun, took the outside edge and Collingwood snaffled it at slip 103/3
    32.1 yorked him! Yousuf's off stump has been knocked out of the ground! Memories of Anderson's dismissal of him in Cape Town at the World Cup in 2003. It was an excellent yorker, searingly full and fast, swinging away. Now this really will set Pakistan's nerves jangling... Just 17 needed... 131/5
    29.3 Azhar is run out! He clipped into the leg side, the ball ricocheting off Cook's ankle at short leg. Yousuf called him through, there was hesitation on both sides and when the throw went to the non-striker's end and Swann helped the ball onto the stumps Azhar was well short. Here come the nerves! 124/4

    33.3 Drama! We're going to have another review here! Kamran padded up to an offspinner from Swann, the ball spun back sharply and Tony Hill raises the finger. Replays suggest that is clipping the top of off, the umpire's decision is upheld! Kamran out for 0, and now Pakistan will be nervous 132/6
