    25.4 short, wide, cut hard in the air ... and caught at point by Fawad Alam! Shoaib strikes, and Pakistan are right in this again. Strauss had played so well - albeit with a little luck - and his dismissal at this point will put a lot of pressure on England's middle order 127/3
    19.6 that's the breakthrough! Tossed up outside off stump, Davies chased the drive, but it's the doosra and that sneaks off the inside-edge and back onto the stumps 113/1
    24.2 half-forward, the ball snakes off the inside-edge, pad, and on to the stumps! 125/2
    36.6 gone! Bell falls! Again the catch goes to extra cover but this time Azhar Ali - on as substitute fielder for Yousuf - holds onto a stinging chance. Bell came down the wicket and tried to drive over cover, but didn't get the elevation he wanted. That's given Pakistan a definite lift at a very tense point in the game, and his team surrounds the young man to show their appreciation 171/5
    31.2 cleaned him up! Collingwood played back when he should have been forward, the ball jagging back in to him from a wider angle on the crease to beat the bat and clatter into the stumps. Collingwood's scratchy knock is brought to an end, but with Morgan's cool head and broad bat to replace him, that might not be the worst news for England... 149/4
    43.3 gone! Morgan tries to slam this down the ground, but slices underneath the ball to send a steepling chance ... to Mohammad Yousuf, of all people! Yousuf has not had the best summer in the field but he's held onto a very tough chance. The two oldest men on the field - on most fields these days - combine to give their team a very strong chance of levelling this series. Pakistan immediately form a huddle, they're pumped up now 211/8
    41.2 played on! Shoaib strikes! He came round the wicket from a very wide angle, hurling it down on a length. Yardy was cramped for room, the inside edge ricocheted off the inside edge and cannoned into the stumps. The old veteran has charged in and picked up a wicket to keep his team in the hunt, and isn't he pleased! 197/6
    42.2 bowled him! Full, fast and swinging in and that's too good for Bresnan. That reversed sharply back in to him, Bresnan tried to whip to leg but was cleaned up. Pakistan may be favourites now, but Morgan's is the wicket they really need. 205/7
    44.4 slower ball, offcutter, and Swann is bowled! He's been bowling such fantastic reverse-swinging yorkers, Swann won't have been expecting that and he's cleaned up! Pakistan are almost there now 224/9
    46.1 huge swipe across the line from Broad, and Gul has made a mess of his stumps! Gul seals the game with his fourth wicket 227/10
