    2.6 bowled him! Terrific ball, 61mph fired in on leg stump and Roy, dancing down the pitch, misses it completely 16/1
    5.3 driven straight back to Nabi! Tame and lame from Vince who, dancing down the pitch to a slower ball, dabs a dolly back to the bowler 42/2
    5.6 turned off his toes - Root runs for a single but is sent back, and he's going to be short of his ground here - he is! The stumps are demolished; were they broken too soon? It's complete carnage out there and we'll have to go to a replay. Did he break the stumps too early? No - he's out. Root is out. Root's gone! 42/4
    5.4 gone! Morgan's left a straight one - shouldering arms, waiting for the turn and oh dear, oh dear, oh dear! 42/3
    9.2 he's...he's...bowled him! The googly, short of a length and Stokes went to pull it but is much too quick on it, inside-edging it onto his stumps - and in the process, falling over onto his derriere, which rather sums up England's comical effort this afternoon 57/6
    8.1 what a catch, what a blinder to dismiss Buttler! Driven on the up and short extra cover dives forward and to his left as though scooping fish from the river, plucking a beauty! 50/5

    14.3 gone. Too easy. Rashid can't believe it! Tried to turn it to leg but gets a limp leading edge back to the bowler 85/7

    0.3 gone! Afghanistan's lynchpin is trapped in front to a swinging delivery on middle, bending back onto middle-and-leg 4/1
    8.5 short of a length and it gets stuck in the pitch - he's much too quick onto it, tamely punching it back to Rashid who takes the simplest of catches 39/5
    1.6 gone - sharp, quick ball. 89mph just outside off and the captain fends this straight to Root at first slip who takes it chest-height, smartly 12/2
    2.6 touch shorter and Gulbadin tries to heave this over the top but picks out extra cover 13/3
    7.5 gone! Sharp catch! Driven on the up straight to Morgan at short extra-cover who leaps high to snaffle a smart catch 35/4
    12.5 oh, Nabi's lured into this - well bowled by Rashid. He gave it a touch more air, and Nabi tried to loft him over the top but miscues to Jordan at wide long-on 64/6
    16.4 possibly one of the worst balls ever bowled, miles wide of off, short, slow - complete and utter filth - but Shinwari's attempt to smack it over cover merely skies it straight to Root at extra-cover 94/8
    15.4 oh well bowled, just short of a yorker and it's dug out to the leg side. They run a single - but Najib is sent back and Jordan, such an athlete, is quick to skip across and wing down the stumps. The batsman looks like he's safely home, or has his bat bounced up while he grounded it? It has! Just a glimmer of daylight between bat and grass and Najib is furious with himself 85/7

    18.1 oops. Schoolboy stuff, really - clobbered out to Ali at midwicket, and sends back Hamza who realises his fate and stands mid-pitch! Quite sad really. Hangdog expression on his face as Ali throws to Jordan who whips off the bails 108/9
