    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
    not out
    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
