Commentary

Abdul Razzaq was absolutely outstanding in his brutal knock of 75, but England won at a canter with 22 balls left. Fine knocks from Ian Bell and Andrew Strauss, with Kevin Pietersen also showing an improvement upon his scratchy form in this series thus far. We hope you've enjoyed our commentary on today's match - do join us for Sunday's, at Edgbaston, which gets underway at the earlier time of 10.15BST - don't be late!

Well that's a really good effort from England who exploited a tired-looking Pakistan side - and, best of all, it keeps the series alive which is surely good news for all concerned. No one likes a dead-rubber, and England have a chance to level the series 2-2 in the final match at Edgbaston on Sunday.

Mohammad Hafeez to Pietersen, FOUR, on leg stump again and Pietersen simply swats it over the bowler's head for four! Great way to finish the game, one in which England have dominated for much of the day.
