    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
