    0.1 what a fantastic ball! An inswinging yorker which is far, far too good for Trescothick, swinging right into him. It comes off both pads and crashes right into the stumps. A beauty and Trescothick's walking off already. Thanks for coming 0/1
    14.5 Strauss comes down the track and aims to smack the ball over the top but gets an all-too-obvious edge and even Akmal can't muck that one up 79/2
    24.2 drives a sharp catch to point on the up. Full of length and that was a thick outside edge. Great decision from Inzamam to bring Shoaib back - it's already paid dividends, dismissing Bell just when he was showing real touch there 125/4
    21.3 Pietersen tried to work that one out to the leg side but a thick outside edge flies up for a gentle catch at backward point and that's the dangerman gone. A bit of a waste of a shot, there, it probably goes without saying and Pietersen knows it: he shakes his head as he watches the replay of his demise on the big screen 113/3
    47.5 slower ball, tried to work it round the corner, but got a top edge. Now, that's a smart catch by Shoaib Akhtar, running forward to cling on to that one held over his shoulder at square leg. A useful innings comes to an end and it will be up to the tail to continue the swinging now 249/7
    43.6 inswinging yorker totally cleans up Dalrymple and his leg stump was knocked right back there. Lovely 226/5
    44.3 the batsman came forward and yorked himself there with one which was full and straight and that goes through the gate to take middle stump 229/6

    48.3 worked out to mid-on and the batsmen look for a suicidal two. That's a good throw back in and Shoaib stands calm, at the bowler's end, whipping off the bails to leave the batsman some vital inches short. Mahmood is gone without facing a delivery 255/8
    49.3 much better fielding and takes the catch at long-on, sliced away by Lewis and that's well held after an initial misjudgement, which has Shoaib Malik scrambling backwards to take that over his head 268/9

    0.6 loose drive to another full-length ball wide of off stump which moved away off the pitch and it goes at head height straight to Paul Collingwood at cover who gleefully catches it 2/1
    5.4 strange run given that England were looking rattled after the last few deliveries ... played into the packed off side and Strauss races in and throws while diving, his direct hit leaves Hafeez, who hesitated at the start, inches short. It went to the third umpire and at the time it looked as if Hafeez might have made it, but the replays were clear 29/2
    36.5 Broad has the breakthrough. Khan's really kicking himself there, wincing after sending that one down the throat of the man who just came in from long-off. The batsman didn't intend the ball to quite go there. Well, are England back in it? 196/3
    39.5 done him! That one turned in from outside off and Dalrymple's loving that, whirling his arms round in childlike delight - as well he might, that ripped through and knocked back middle. Hmmm, game on indeed 215/4

    40.4 squared up this time by a beauty which pitches on middle, does a bit and just kisses the outside edge and that's a lovely ball... oh hang on, it definitely hit his sleeve, the replays show, but whether it hit the edge or not is as yet inconclusive. Either way, he's back in the hutch and this game could go right down to the wire now 217/5
    46.1 Razzaq checked on the shot, deceived by a well-disguised slower ball, and only chips it back at perfect catching height to Broad 256/6
    46.2 Akmal slashes his first ball straight to Collingwood at backward point and Broad is on a hat-trick 256/7
    47.6 horrible, ugly heave to a slower one and a hint of an inside edge as the ball clattered into the stumps. He won't want to watch replays of that, nor did he dare to look at a scowling Inzamam as he skulked past him 265/8
