    9.1 full and seaming in, sticks one on the front pad, that's plumb! Beats the inside edge, up goes Rod Tucker's finger... and there'll be no review this time! Azhar has been worked over, the ball going this way and that, now Broad sneaks one back past his forward prod. Impact was in line, middle stump in the crosshairs 17/2
    1.6 got him this time, slashed to third slip! Root is back in the cordon and holds a sharp chance above his head... England have the early breakthrough they craved, Broad is the man; fed him what looked a juicy half-volley, but it was going away from him, there's some pace in this deck and it shot through 0/1
    20.6 teasing line, Haris goes fishing - nicked to slip! And just like that, Haris departs. He had a torrid start but it looked like he was just finding his groove. Decent line from Woakes, induced some uncertainty, regulation low catch to second slip... and that's his first first-class wicket of 2018 49/3
    24.3 super line, Cook juggles the catch at slip! Woakes amongst 'em again! What a big wicket before lunch, the nuggety Shafiq ripped out by one that bounced and left him, a flying edge from high up the bat and Cook managed to hold on. Pakistan teetering 62/4
    29.2 that's stone dead! Broad doesn't even look around as he appeals...but Salahuddin opts to review. The no-ball is quite tight, but he's fine. Salahuddin playing around a delivery that swings in from a good length. It's giving leg stump a good whack. 78/6
    28.1 that's cleaned him up! Full and straight, no doubt about that one hitting the stumps. Sarfraz basically played all around it, aiming through midwicket, as it ducked in late then deflects off the pads 78/5
    48.1 full, angled in from round the wicket, Shadab swings it to leg... but picks out the man at deep midwicket! Curran has his maiden Test pole! A fine, fighting knock from Shadab ends with a bit of a hoick, but he's given the scorecard some respectability 174/10
    30.2 and another, full and straight! Ashraf is caught on the crease, Anderson gets it up at middle and off with a hint of shape back in at the left hander and he's taken just below the knee roll 79/7
    38.5 and finally Anderson gets him! He's worked over Amir and this time he edges through to Bairstow. Probably one of the poorer deliveries in the spell, short and wide, but Amir went after it and gets a thin top edge 113/8

    43.6 full, chipped back, Woakes snaffles the caught-and-bowled! The fun is over for Hasan, stuck on his heels and closing the face, the leading edge popped up for a head-height take, Woakes gets his third 156/9

    34.5 lummy, he's gone, gloved through the keeper on the pull! Hasan pulls the pin on another of his celebrations, he's made the breakthrough late in the day... Cook looks mildly peeved, that's a shot he can normally bank on; looked to be through it a bit early, and he knew he'd got a touch on the ball through to Sarfraz 104/2
    16.6 and there's the breakthrough! Ashraf finds the outside edge, a back of a length delivery outside off stump, this time Jennings can't pull the bat inside the line and it's a feather through to Sarfraz. He could have left it 53/1
    43.3 and he's got him now! Big wicket. The captain has gone before fifty this time. Another full delivery outside off, Root can't resist having a drive and gets a thin edge through to Sarfraz. Once again, an unfulfilled innings from the England skipper 138/3
    68.4 no fifty this time! Extra bounce from Shadab, Bess playing back and trying to dab it away on the off side, takes the outside edge, sharp catch at slip 212/5
    65.1 strikes first ball! Back of a length outside off, touch of extra bounce, takes the shoulder of the bat and loops to first slip. Might have been glove as well, flew at a gentle pace into the cordon 200/4
    79.6 gone this time! Last delivery before the new ball is available...good length at off stump, Bairstow has a nibble and it's regulation outside edge. Bit of a soft dismissal, really 260/6

    88.6 lovely line, draws the prod, grazes the outside edge and Sarfraz swallows it! That's what Abbas does, wrings you out with a proud seam and a hard ball... Just held its line on off stump, Woakes had to play 285/7
    100.1 tempting the drive, finds the outside edge, Shafiq scoops up a low catch... but did it carry? He seems unsure, the umpires are going to check, and the soft signal is not out; what will the replays tell us? Looks to me like it's hit the fingertips and then been taken, but what will Paul Reiffel think? He gives it! Sam Curran doesn't look terribly pleased, and you might say it was hardly conclusive evidence that the on-field call was wrong. But I think that probably was the right decision, all things considered 319/8
    105.1 brilliantly caught on the hook! The short ball does for Broad, though it took an excellent bit of fielding from Abbas as a hoicked top edge flew flat towards fine leg, he plunged forward and held on 344/9
    106.2 gottim, steered straight to first slip! A tame end to the innings, Anderson standing almost front on and nicking off... So there'll be no brazen hundred for Buttler, but England have a sizeable lead 363/10

    4.3 that's out! - castled Anderson bellows at the skies, Azhar looks to the heaves and chastises himself. The stumps are a mess, and he's basically played around a full straight one. Pakistan's good start grabbed by the neck and put into a headlock 20/1

    22.6 first Test wicket, given lbw! Imam goes for the review but it won't save him. Slides on past the inside edge, no bat. This looks very good. Struck in front of off stump. Hit the pad below the knee roll. It's hitting the top of middle stump 84/4
    6.6 pitched up, invites the drive and tha- INTERCEPTED ONE-HANDED BY BESS! Brilliant diving catch at extra cover and Anderson has his second, another skittish innings from Haris is brought to an end. Nonchalant from Bess, with his left hand, and the ball was travelling 30/2
    9.2 down the leg side, they go up for a catch... this time Root does review. Were there two sounds? Did it flick the pad? Looks like it; but hang on, Snicko says it also grazed the glove! Yes, it looks like he got a touch on it before deflecting off the hip through to Bairstow, who was again easily convinced. Instinct pays off, Shafiq has to go thanks to DRS 42/3
    40.2 oh dear, Usman...! Goes for the big shot, but instead lumps it straight to mid-on! Salahuddin departs, he finally snapped and Pakistan are properly falling down now 115/8
    27.5 pinned him, smack on the knee roll in front of off! Bruce Oxenford didn't have to think too long about that, and there won't be a review... Woakes knocks over Sarfraz, 92 runs short of his hundred. Decent ball, that, jagging in, would have crashed into middle and leg 97/5
    30.2 rising in the channel, Shadab flirst outside off - nicked straight to slip! Curran leaps for joy, a birthday gift for the new boy! Good bowling in the channel, could probably have been left but it slid on with the arm, took the edge and Cook pouched it safely 102/6
    37.1 flighted, Ashraf's eyes light up... but his farmhand hack ends up lollipopping to backward point! Awful shot, aiming for cow corner with the ball spinning away, the top edge spoons up and Bess has another. England three wickets away now 111/7

    43.1 edged, that's a super grab at slip! Hasan is snuffed out, Broad has the wicket, Cook swooping to his left to take the catch. That ball was travelling, extra bounce from a length for Broad and Hasan could only fence at it like the tailender he is 124/9
    45.6 short of a length, Broad's legcutter and it takes the shoulder of the bat, steered to third slip - that's job done for England! Root grabs it in front of his face, the crowd gurgles in delight, and England have won by an innings and 55 runs 134/10
