    1.4 there's an appeal for caught behind as he goes for the pull, there's a noise as it passes the batsman. Given not out and England review. Close to glove. We'll need Hot Spot and Snicko for this. No mark on Hot Spot. Will be down to RTS now. Well, there is a spike. Is it enough? Third umpire, Simon Fry, having one more look and it's overturned! 2/1
    2.2 what a ball! That's one for the scrapbook from Wood. Not doubt there. Pitches full on middle (maybe even leg stump) moves away late off the seam and knocks back off stump.Blimey, yes, that ball from Wood pitched well outside leg 2/2
    3.1 and another! This going from bad to worse for Pakistan. It's back of a length, nips away down the slope, bounces a touch and takes the edge. Lovely bowling, Azhar did not do much wrong. High-quality from England's quicks 2/3
    13.4 got through him! A full delivery, Azam was aiming to play it through the leg side, gets a thick inside edge into his boot which then rolls back to the stumps 66/4
    42.5 finds deep midwicket! Gets too far underneath his slog-sweep this time, and it doesn't have the legs to clear Hales who is on the boundary 202/6
    26.2 there it is! Wood has earned that wicket. This is just back of a length, kicks sharply off the deck and grazes the edge of a non-committal back-foot push. Tight line, good pace, disarming movement. He's using all his tricks today 125/5

    45.6 oh dear! This could be nasty...the catch has been taken in the deep by Joe Root but he collides with Rashid as both of them were looking at the ball. Root is holding his ankle. He did very well to hold on. Hasan got a big leading edge from a back-of-a-length delivery high into the leg side. Looks as though Root's ankle may have twisted. 223/7
    47.6 what a stunner! Plunkett has pulled off a breathtaking catch at cover. Wahab connected well with a length delivery, came out of the middle, but Plunkett flung himself full-length to his left on the edge of the circle. He was horizontal when he took it. A blinder. 236/8
    48.3 that's a massive slog, goes miles in the air, and gives a simple catch to cover...I know only a few balls left, but not sure that was entirely Yasir's best option. Was a slower ball, so some credit to the bowler as well 238/9
    49.5 gets the yorker in this time, and there's a run out to end the innings...Woakes fielded off his own bowling, Imad had already set off to try and get the strike back. Woakes was about to hurl at the striker's end before realising he could walk up to the non-striker's stumps and take the bails off 251/10

    0.2 inside edge, and Roy has gone for a duck! Perhaps playing for the swing that wasn't there, a loose push forward to a length delivery, and his stumps have been splattered! Well, well, if there was any scalp that Pakistan needed early, that was it! Game most definitely on ... 0/1
    8.5 filfty slog-sweep, and he's through the shot so early he might as well have continued his followthrough and swiped it at the second revolution! Stumps splattered, and another unconvincing innings ends to keep Pakistan in with a sniff ... 35/2
    44.4 a massive mow from a full-length delivery. Root was through his shot early as he sought to close in on his hundred, and emitted a long low groan like a harpooned whale as the ball spiralled into the air and plopped into the hands of cover. The end of another fine match-sealing innings. It looks tight on the scoreline, but it would be remarkable if England lost it from here ... 240/6
    30.2 he's broken through! Imad is pumped! Trying to give himself some room as in the previous over, but this ball was a touch fuller, skids on and goes under Morgan's bat 147/3

    37.5 oops ... well, he was! Aiming in the same direction this time, but carelessly opting for power over placement, and he ended up losing the top of his stumps! The cameraman was deceived, swinging away to the midwicket boundary, but the tell-tale 'plink' of bails was the giveaway... 203/4
    40.1 blow me down, Buttler has been run out by a direct hit from backward point! A tap-and-go from Root, and a sharp pick-up-and-shy from Yasir Shah. He was inches short, but I'm not sure he fully sensed the danger 219/5
