BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Anwar Ali401914.75121000
2.3 to AD Hales, leading edge, caught at mid-off! Both openers gone now. A back-of-a-length delivery, Hales looking to work into the leg side and the thick leading edge carries at head height to Afridi at mid-off. 18/2
Sohail Tanvir413127.75104010
1.6 to JJ Roy, taken this time! Short of a length and Roy splices his pull to mid-on where a simple catch is taken. Didn't get any power or timing on this occasion. 16/1
3.5 to MM Ali, finds cover! Fantastic start for Pakistan. Moeen comes forward, drives on the up, but picks out cover who just had to move a little to his right and snaffle a simple catch. 19/3
Wahab Riaz403318.25104100
13.6 to JM Vince, you miss, I hit! That over deserved reward, excellent pressure built. Vince has a heave across the line of a slower delivery, superb bowling,and the off stump gets struck.. 95/4

Chris Jordan403709.25106030
Reece Topley402436.00131120
1.3 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, down on one knee, swept powerfully, but straight into the hands of deep backward square! Topley strikes, and Sarfraz is gone. 8/1
19.3 to Wahab Riaz, smashed down the ground! Huge excitement for a split-second as the crowd sense a six, but Moeen at long-on is in position to poop the party .... 145/9
19.6 to Imran Khan, nope, he can't! A swing, an edge, all over Red Rover!. 146/10
Liam Plunkett402135.25132000
3.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, an even better connection on this pull shot, but he's picked out the only man in the deep on the leg-side! A sucker dismissal and England firmly in the mix here. 20/2
5.1 to Rafatullah Mohmand, swished across the line, good sharp pace as Rafatullah has another mow across the line and another thin top-edge that Billings, this time, grabs with no alarms. Reward for aggression, and the end of an unfulfilled debut innings. 25/3
14.6 to Anwar Ali, driven on the up, spirals into the covers, Morgan takes the catch on the edge of the ring. No Sri Lanka-style heroics for Anwar, this game is nearly done. 100/8
Moeen Ali403017.5092110
12 to Sohaib Maqsood, Maqsood advances, Moeen slides one down the leg-side, Billings gathers well. Toodlepip.... 75/7
Stephen Parry403328.25100300
7.4 to Mohammad Rizwan, supreme slow bowling! Absolutely kippered by a ball so paceless it barely had the momentum to stay airborne. But Rizwan was through his shot about six times over before the ball died at his feet, and Billings would have completed a facile stumping if middle stump hadn't got in the way. 42/4
11.4 to Shahid Afridi, driven, hopelessly, to mid-off! No pace whatsoever. Boom Boom splut-spluts. His eyes were as wide as saucers as that ball teased its way towards his yawning blade ... oops. 74/6
