Mohammad Hafeez402205.5092000
Aizaz Cheema402516.2560100
5.4 to RS Bopara, gone! Cheema deserved that for a probing spell. Bopara drove and got a thick edge which Umar Akmal took sharply diving to his right. He's dropped easier ones than that. 37/2
Umar Gul403909.7572130
Saeed Ajmal402345.75132100
4.3 to C Kieswetter, top catch! That was very well taken at long on. Kieswetter looked to have struck it cleanly but it didn't quite have the legs. Shoaib Malik ran around the boundary then took it sliding on his knees near the rope. 29/1
12.2 to JM Bairstow, this offie gets past the attempted cut and takes out off stump. So no young-gunning from Jonny Boy today, backing away once more, trying to cut and done by one that squirts under the bat and onto off stump. 72/4
15.4 to JC Buttler, fired in full and quicker and Buttler tries to sweep and misses, struck low on the pad and given out leg before as Buttler falls over, another slightly ungainly ending for the young lad. 89/5
17.5 to SR Patel, but gone this time coming down the track and swinging and missing, easy stumping that my mother could have completed, so even a gimmie for Akmal. 109/6

Steven Finn403107.75102110
Jade Dernbach402426.0061020
1.1 to Mohammad Hafeez, length and chipped back to the bowler and taken! Hafeez falls first ball! Simply popping a straight ball back to Dernbach who took the catch easily at shoulder height to his left. 8/1
19.6 to Misbah-ul-Haq, bowled him!! A slower ball out of the back of the hand, Misbah swings and missed and loses his leg stump. England win by five runs, an absolute thriller of a game!. 124/6
Stuart Broad402416.00113000
18.3 to Umar Akmal, smashed straight up in the air and taken at long off. Another ball outside off, heave into the air and well taken by Swann out of the desert sky. 113/4
Samit Patel401804.50101000
Graeme Swann402015.0080010
7.2 to Awais Zia, length, played across the line, a huge cry for leg before and given out after an age. Deary me did the umpire take his time! But up goes the finger, replays suggest it pitched outside leg, even thought it spun sharply and probably hitting leg stump. 48/2
