    1.4 top-edged pull, a steepling chance to mid-on and Kamran falls! Deja vu from his dismissal in the first game, the ball, the shot and the result are all the same! 11/1
    4.2 another bouncer from Broad, and this time he's got the wicket! Shahzaib tried to get across to the off side and hook to fine leg, but the ball was simply too quick for him, kissing the glove on the way through to the keeper 20/3
    3.2 bouncer from Bresnan, and it's pulled ... but straight to Bopara at deep square leg! Again he picked up the length early, deliberately pulled the ball in the air but just couldn't get the connection he was hoping for. Pakistan wobble... 18/2

    10.3 great stuff from Swann, what a response! Cool as you like. Having watched the last disappear over his head Swann throws this up much slower, a touch wider, Umar runs at it and hacks wildly, only for the ball to spin back and crash into the stumps, Swann smiles wryly, knowing he's out-thought the youngster 44/5
    4.6 another one goes, and this is a big blow for Pakistan! Back of a length from Broad, and the ball is met with a wild, baseball-style swipe from Afridi. It's unclear where he was trying to hit that, but the ball takes a thick top edge and goes straight up. Morgan gets easily underneath it and he's not going to drop that! Pakistan in real trouble now 22/4
    14.1 another gone, run out by a distance here, Hafeez looked for a reverse-sweep, failed to connect and it came off his body towards Sidebottom at short fine leg, Razzaq called him through for a single but Hafeez took an age to reach the bowler's end and Sidebottom's throw came in quick enough to Swann to do the rest 55/6
    17.4 another falls, slower ball from Sidebottom who manages a smile now, Razzaq tried to slug this over deep midwicket but could only find a top edge that looped towards slip 85/8
    14.3 Swann may thank Broad after all! Alam gone first ball trying to cut off the back foot, touch of spin, gets a faint outside edge and Davies clings on. Absolute procession here 56/7
    17.5 Two in two! Another wicket for Sidebottom, who's smile is even broader now. Slower-ball bouncer once more, Gul tried to pull it away but could only manage a top edge that looped towards deep square where Bopara ran in and slid on his knees to pouch the catch 85/9
    18.4 that is that. All over. Abject effort from Pakistan ends with Shoaib backing away and missing a full toss that crashes into middle stump. England will need 90 to win 89/10

    2.4 two wickets in two balls, again Umar is involved! Kieswetter is run out at the non-striker's end! Bopara punched his first ball - full, outside off - straight to Umar at backward point and immediately called "no!" but his partner was halfway down the track. The throw was on target and he's a good few inches short! 26/2
    2.3 and the change of angle works straight away! It was a length delivery - nothing that special about it - and Davies tried to nudge him into the leg side. The ball just seemed to stick in the wicket and pop up, he played too early at it and gave Umar the simplest of catches 26/1
    10.6 gone this time! Fair to say Bopara never looked remotely happy out there, another short ball here but much quicker, trapping Bopara on the thigh as he looked to pull and though it looked to be going over, he's given out 63/4
    9.3 edged, and a tumbling Hafeez at slip gratefully accepts the chance! It was the doosra again for sure, landing on the perfect spot as Collingwood pushed forward with no great certainty. A wicket for Ajmal, but is it too late for Pakistan? 57/3
