    9.1 Game on indeed! This one lands outside off and is moving away, Strauss decides to flash at it and gets an edge, and Akmal dives full length to his left and takes a very fine catch to send him packing and Pakistan have hit back hard, England's captain goes 49/3
    2.5 bye bye Joyce! This one lands on a sweet spot on off, Joyce thinks it is going to move away but it swings back into him and shatters the offstump! A poor leave from Joyce, judgment error, really but he's sent packing and Asif has drawn first blood 23/1
    8.6 Got 'em! Outside the off stump, Bell is drawn into the drive but can only get a thick outside edge to gully where Imran Farhat takes a very good catch diving to his right, Bell is gone and Pakistan are making inroads 49/2
    19.3 bowled! tossed up again. Pietersen gets into an awkward position but nevertheless tries to swipe it on the leg side. This time he misses and his off stump is pegged back. 102/4
    20.4 Pakistan are on a roll here. Pitches around off stump, nips back in and keeps a touch low. Collingwood plays back and is hit in front. The umpire has a good look and eventually rules him out. 106/6
    19.6 Afridi has another one! That ball drifted ever so slightly in the air, had Dalrymple playing down the wrong line, pitched on middle and struck him low on the front pad. That was definitely taking off stump. 102/5

    22.4 a rush of blood does Read in. Short ball and Read plays a very inappropriate hook. Rana Naved-ul-Hasan was out in the deep and judged the catch perfectly. 118/7
