    13.4 short, top-edged and a simple catch at square leg! That's not the first time Kamran has fallen in this fashion on this tour - it was similar to both his dismissals in the Cardiff Twenty20s. The ball rose up more sharply than he expected, and though it looked as though he was trying to hook in the air, he's undone by the quick, short ball 62/1
    31.5 there's the breakthrough, and you have to say that was coming. Round the wicket, Hafeez went to mow over midwicket, a big top-edge to Trott at gully. The end of a good innings, but Pakistan wanted more from their set batsman 137/4

    19.5 bowled, and Shafiq didn't have a clue! Classic offspinner's dismissal, drifting full and wide of off to invite the drive, dipping and spinning in sharply to clatter into the stumps. Shafiq has been outclassed here, but he didn't give himself the best chance either - that was a very loose drive. Swann's first over penchant continues! 86/2
    21.5 Swann strikes again! Yousuf is caught behind, great piece of bowling from Swann. The two balls previously both spun in sharply, but this was the arm ball and rushed straight on. Yousuf may well have picked that, and was shaping to dab to third man, but a touch of extra bounce meant the ball kissed the outside edge and nestled safely in Davies' gloves 94/3

    37.1 first ball after the resumption, and Swann has nailed Alam's middle stump! Beautiful delivery, tossed up, pitching perfectly and spinning just enough. Alam was anchored on the back foot, and in no position to attack that 155/5
    45.1 Broad strikes with the bouncer once again! Short and fast on off stump, Umar tried to hook but was in no position to play the shot. A steepling top-edge went straight up, and Davies held a good catch. The end of a very scratchy innings from Umar, he never looked at ease 210/7
    44.4 Afridi falls! One over away from the Powerplay, he tries to launch a slower ball over long-on, but gets underneath it and Strauss runs in from wide long-on to hold a regulation catch 209/6

    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
