    30.3 short ball, Roy pulls - and plops a catch to mid-on! He's furious with himself, and that's because he knows it's a soft way to go...Trying to dominate but the shot if fluffed, comes off the splice and loops to the edge of the ring, simple catch for Imad Wasim. Roy thumps the ground, himself, anything in range, and stalks back to the dressing room 177/2
    18.6 gone, caught in the deep! Not that Fakhar was celebrating, having taken it at the second attempt and then nearly slid into the rope at deep backward square! Shaheen isn't bothered, though, and rolls out the Star Man, the crowd going quiet as they realise Bairstow is out... Didn't quite collar the pull as he'd have liked, in the air all the way and Fakhar did well to parry it diving high to his right and then grab it on the way down 115/1
    35.1 long-hop, thumped to midwicket! That's as filthy as a Sunday friendly, a slow non-turning half-bunger, Root could have chosen anywhere on the field, but pulled to Haris's left, who clings on well! 211/3

    14.2 that's the breakthrough, scooped up low from a leading edge! Moeen opens the door with a tweak off the handle, possibly gripped a touch as Imam worked across the line... Only just carried but Moeen came up smiling and Imam, after a moment's hesitation, turned to head for the changing rooms 92/1
    32.6 very wide line, Fakhar chases it, and England are reviewing for the caught behind! If there's a noise, that has to be out, as there's no bat on ground involved, and there is! Great review from England, but that's the end of a simply brilliant innings. 227/2
    33.5 gottim, plinked back to the bowler! Oh dear, Babar bows his head... heaving across the line, his bottom hand flew off the bat, the ball seemed to hit the cue end and loop gently straight back down the pitch for a comfortable catch. Suddenly a lot of people's seats at the Ageas are feeling a whole lot less sweaty 233/3
    45.4 in the slot, Asif connects... and picks out long-off! Sliced it a touch, was looking to go straighter but it is right at Stokes, who seems to lose sight of it but holds on in front of his chest even as he stumbles back! Is that the game? 323/5
    39.1 bumper outside off, Haris flails at it - and sends a top edge down the throat of deep point! Plunkett strikes with the first ball of this spell, YJB points to the crowd as he runs around to pouch it safely, and Haris shakes his head before trudging off. Is this tipping England's way? 274/4

    47.3 short ball, hacked into the air... Buttler takes it running back towards fine leg! Imad was cramped him for room, the ball went high but pretty much into no-man's land, meaning Buttler had to get his skates on. Taken sprawling forwards, Pakistan six down now! 345/6
    48.5 full outside off, spooned up and taken at mid-off! Plunkett gets another, the pressure rising and Pakistan look like the ones who are going to crack 353/7
