    2.4 Kamran falls this time! Big breakthrough and Kamran is unlucky to go. Shades of Michael Vaughan's Trent Bridge dismissal against India in 2008 - nothing delivery down the leg side, clips the thigh pad and deflects on to leg stump. 8/2
    1.6 Anderson strikes! What a delivery it was too! Fullish, pitching and jagging away sharply to turn Hafeez around, squaring him up, clipping a fine outside edge and Davies holds on! 8/1
    24.2 gone this time! Tossed up again by Swann but Shafiq couldn't resist going for the big drive. He skipped down the wicket without quite reaching it and ended up lifting it with no great power or timing straight to Eoin Morgan who was in from the long-off boundary. Smart bowling and it brings an end to a very promising innings 95/4
    9.1 Anderson strikes again! Nip-backer does for Yousuf! The batsman was unhappy but replays show it clipping the bails. He walked across his stumps looking initially to run it down to third man but it jagged back and Yousuf couldn't get his bat down in time. Top bowling from Anderson! 31/3
    38.2 chipped again, but out this time! Yardy held this one back a bit, Alam tried to drive through the off side but drove it uppishly and straight to Strauss who stuck his hands up above his head to snatch the ball out of the air 181/6
    29.5 oh dear, awful shot. Banged in short and Umar raced down the wicket and tried to hook this out the ground, got cramped as he tried to play the shot, ended up top-edging straight to fine leg. Good work from Bresnan, that's why he was the one to watch! 121/5

    46.3 all over now! Razzaq departs smashing a slower-ball bouncer out to Anderson at cow corner, who dives forward to collect smartly 227/8
    49.4 all over now. Slower ball, Gul down on one knee trying to dink a sweep shot, but he misses and it crashes into middle stump. 241/10
    47.3 this is out though! Very out indeed! Full and straight, Ajmal plays all around it and it struck bang in front. Three wickets for Anderson, he's bowled excellently today 234/9

    18.2 gone, Gul strikes and what a strike! Full and nips back, gets the inside edge and clatters into off stump! Strauss departs and England in trouble now! 95/4
    5.6 Davies' stumps are shattered! Razzaq nips another one back in off the seam, Davies leaves a huge gap between bat and pad as he swishes, crease-bound, and has his off stump pegged back. First strike for Pakistan! 35/1
    8.6 what a ball! Unplayable yorker! Shoaib found a hint of inswing earlier in this over, and this has swung and dipped under Trott's bat, clattering into the stumps. Inswinging yorker at round about 90mph, and Trott departs! Shoaib's still got it... 42/2
    13.6 Bopara departs! Ajmal is a dangerous bowler and Bopara flashed an off drive, but could only get a faint edge through to Kamran Akmal, who held on gleefully! 77/3
    38.1 Morgan's gifted his wicket away! Nothing delivery on leg stump and Morgan flicked it straight to deep square leg, great bonus for Pakistan and they are right back in the game now! 201/6
    20.5 that's out! Gul nips one back in to Yardy's pads to strike him dead infront of his stumps. That looked plumb the moment it hit him, and Gul is celebrating again! Pakistan are edging ahead in this contest now, but as has happened so often recently Morgan's wicket is the key 103/5

    38.4 Gul strikes, off stump cartwheeling! What a strike! Pitched and came back in, bursting through the defences to send off stump flying out the ground! 201/7
    40.5 gone! Gul cleans Broad up to give him a five-for! What a delivery! Full and swinging in and flattening middle stump! Pakistan nearing victory now! 207/8
    42.6 gone! Gul strikes with the last ball of his spell to remove Swann! That's a career-best for Gul! Not a great delivery but Pakistan won't care, full half-volley that Swann stroked straight to Afridi at short extra cover. What a sensational spell of bowling and it's gone a long, long way to giving Pakistani fans some much-needed joy! 211/9
    45.4 Razzaq strikes! Stumps flying and Pakistan have won! Fielders jumping around everywhere, what a result! What a performance, Pakistan love it at The Oval! England looked as good as home while Morgan and Wright were together but then Umar Gul was gifted Morgan's wicket and flattened England's lower order. 218/10
