    14.2 length ball, Aslam heaves across the line... and sends a swirling top edge to Stokes running in from deep backward square leg! The end of a fairly tortured innings 61/2
    3.6 oh dear, Sharjeel's tossed it away! Full outside off, he tries to launch Jordan over the covers, makes a proper Horlicks of it and manages to spoon the ball high into the air but only a few metres beyond the ring, where Stokes make certain running back 24/1
    37.6 comes down the track... and holes out to long-off! No debate about this one, Azhar looking to muscle down the ground, poor connection and it gave a simple catch to Willey standing on the boundary rope. The captain falls and the good ship Pakistan is listing badly 169/6
    22.4 cut, in the air, Plunkett at backward point hops with both hands and pounces on a looping top-edge. A bit of extra bounce and it's bye-bye Babar 110/3
    29.5 down the track, and Plunkett snaffles another blinder at mid-on! Sarfraz's frustration had been mounting, he galloped out to meet the ball but never quite got to the pitch, and his attempted mow over long-on scudded fast and flat, high to the fielder's left, who grabbed it in mid-air with both hands! 136/4
    33.4 big appeal and gone! Rizwan never looked convinced about what he was facing. And this one just drifts into his half-cocked front pad. Ended up playing across the line and he doesn't bother reviewing it 152/5
    40.5 turn and bounce, Nawaz is a lonely island in the middle of the pitch and YJB completes the stumping! Moeen improves his analysis with the wicket of Nawaz, he fired this into the pitch as the batsman advanced, appreciably rip away from the left-hander and a simple job for the keeper 180/7

    48.5 the full toss does the job, Hasan slicing to backward point! The batsman was backing away to leg, swinging from the hip, flipped it high to Root's right for a running catch 236/8

    2.5 gets it right this time! Perfect line outside off, climbs and leaves Roy, and Rizwan at second slip grabs an outstanding low chance, diving to his left! 15/1
    6.4 edged and gone this time! Another perfect example of line and length, angled in, nipping away, grazing the blade and this time it carries to the keeper! 36/2
    11.2 stays in the crease this time, and Root has picked the wrong ball to pull! Not desperately short, and Root gets a fat steepling top-edge, straight to Irfan at deep fine leg! The six in a row goes begging, and England are officially in a contest here! 59/3
    14.3 edged, and gone! Catching practice from Morgan, a similar sort of shot that was getting him into trouble during the World T20, flat feet and a flinch/glide in the direction of third man, and it's a simple edge to slip! 72/4
    34.1 slog-swept ... straight down the throat of deep midwicket! Stokes can't believe what he's done, a bit of pressure was building, he attempted to break the shackles, but picked the longest part of the ground to do so, and didn't wrap enough bat around the shot 175/5
    44.2 sharp work at mid-off, and Bairstow has run himself out! He backed his lightning speed between the wickets, but he didn't count on a bullet arm from Azhar! Now then, England putting themselves back under a hint of pressure 225/6
