    10.2 caught behind! Shoaib has been whistling them past the outside edge, and finally Strauss gets a touch to one. Big edge, and Kamran dives to his left to take it infront of first slip. Shoaib gets further reward for an impressive opening spell, and Pakistan are on top now! 47/3
    5.4 gone! The move has worked for Pakistan, Davies advances down the pitch but is beaten by the spin and there's a simple stumping for Kamran Akmal - who actually makes it look simple 31/1
    8.5 gone! That's brilliant from Shoaib and it's late swing again, Trott drives without footwork and his stumps are demolished. Pakistan, and their supporters, go wild 46/2
    26.6 gone! Afridi makes the breakthrough as he finds Bell's inside edge which then rattles the stumps. Was a flatter ball, Bell was trapped on the back foot...well bowled by Afridi, that's a key breakthrough 106/4
    44.1 clatter! Yorker from Gul, ideal bowling for the situation and Collingwood falls. He had come down the track and given himself room, but swung right over the top of the ball and had his stumps broken 199/5
    not out
    45.2 bowled him! That wasn't the yorker, it slipped out as a low, dipping full toss but it swung in sharply - and late - and beat Wright's flashing bat and smashed into the stumps. Wright had made room and was trying to thump it through the covers, but he was beaten by pace and late movement. Shoaib takes his third! 202/6

    18.1 Wright strikes! Kamran falls, lbw. Huge appeal, and he's given! Kamran really isn't happy, he doesn't want to go ... and HotSpot shows an inside edge, so that's very unlucky for him. But he's got to go 80/3
    12.4 vintage Collingwood, migraine or no migraine, great catch at backward point! It was short and rising outside off and Hafeez launched into a cut, but couldn't keep it down. Colly leapt to his right, plucking the ball out of the air, and England make the breakthrough! Hafeez is unhappy as he trudges off, he seems to be suggesting to Kamran that the ridiculous running broke his concentration 63/1
    12.5 gone first ball! Caught behind! What a ball to get first up, Broad has been moving them in through the air but this one hit the seam - off a good length - and moved towards the slips. Shafiq hardly moved his feet, getting a thin edge, and Davies did the rest. Broad is on a hat-trick! 63/2
    27.4 what a beauty! Swann, what a bowler he is, spins this between Yousuf's bat and pad. Another stunner from the finest spinner in the world. Yousuf was looking to push into the off side, but was defeated all ends up 104/5
    19.5 what a ball! Swann strikes with his fifth ball of the match, and what a delivery it was. Tossed up, drifting towards the pad, dipping, gripping and spinning past Alam's uncertain push. Undone in the flight, beaten by the turn 83/4
    32.3 Collingwood strikes with his third ball! Umar was looking to attack, driving hard back at the bowler but the ball just stopped on the surface and he pushed it in the air straight back to Colly. It was hit pretty hard - and Collingwood juggled the catch - but he held on and that's probably the last nail for Pakistan 121/7
    27.5 gone! And another! England on a roll as Afridi lunges forward but gets an inside edge into his stumps...Swann now on a hat-trick 104/6
    not out
    35.2 terrible running! The pressure was building but they really didn't need this. Gul played with the turn to short fine leg, Razzaq wanted the run but Gul hesitated before setting off, the throw came in to Swann and he whipped the bails off at the non-striker's end with Gul well short 130/8
    36.4 there goes another one! Ajmal is run out, Razzaq drove a fullish ball to Morgan in the covers and set off for a single. Hesitation from both batsmen but Ajmal eventually tries to take the run, Morgan hurls in a shy right on target and he's not even in the frame. Just one more needed by England 135/9
    36.6 that's it, all over now! Pakistan fold with a whimper as Shoaib backs to leg, Broad follows him and Shoaib shuts his eyes and fends... a leading edge loops into the covers and fittingly Eoin Morgan takes the catch that wins the match and seals the series for England 135/10
