TOTAL118.5 Ov (RR: 3.18)378
Fall of wickets: 1-51 (Mohammad Hafeez, 15.2 ov), 2-58 (Shoaib Malik, 18.4 ov), 3-85 (Shan Masood, 28.1 ov), 4-178 (Younis Khan, 57.6 ov), 5-282 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 90.5 ov), 6-334 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 106.2 ov), 7-342 (Wahab Riaz, 108.3 ov), 8-370 (Yasir Shah, 113.5 ov), 9-377 (Zulfiqar Babar, 116.6 ov), 10-378 (Asad Shafiq, 118.5 ov)
28.1 to Shan Masood, first ball and gone! A thin nick through to the keeper, a thoroughly limp prod to a nothing delivery outside off stump, but Masood has opted to review. Remember, no Snicko or HotSpot, and the umpire gave him out. It'll be tricky to get this back ... Chris Gaffney, the unofficial hero of the Ashes, upholds the on-field call, and Masood returns to Anderson's pocket after daring to escape it for a session ... replays suggest it was an offcutter from Anderson, but Masood didn't need to follow it. 85/3
90.5 to Misbah-ul-Haq, a beautiful set-up from Broad and Misbah is given out lbw! Short, short, short then full and fuller. Misbah stuck on the crease, hit on the knee-roll, and though he is reviewing it looks very out! No inside-edge ... he's gone!. 282/5
15.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, gottim, caught at short leg! Moeen disturbs a placid session by getting a soupcon of turn, the ball tickles the inside edge as Hafeez presses forward, not quite as tight in defence as he could have been, and it pops up off the knee roll to be taken diving back towards midwicket. 51/1
106.2 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, oh Sarfraz! He's tossed it away with a mistimed hoick to mid-on! He'll have to strut his stuff right back to the changing rooms... Moeen teases out another foolhardy opponent, done in the flight and he picked out Anderson, who took the catch low to his right. 334/6
108.3 to Wahab Riaz, goes for the big shot again and skies it, Anderson again with the pouch! Huge top edge as Wahab swipes across the line, barely went anywhere but up and mid-on trotted to his left to complete the dismissal. 342/7
57.6 to Younis Khan, down the leg side, and Younis has been strangled! Buttler made good ground to gather and Younis's century No. 31 will have to wait after all! It appeared to come off the face of the bat, so a deliberate attempt to work a four through fine leg, but too close to the keeper. 178/4
116.6 to Zulfiqar Babar, inswinging yorker, Babar has no idea what's happening and is pinned in front! Wood has got him, despite a vain review, the ball shown to be clipping leg stump... Not sure if Babar lost track of the ball or was anticipating a bouncer, he seemed to be ducking and was nowhere near laying bat on ball. England are bounding through the lower order!. 377/9
118.5 to Asad Shafiq, instead of looking for one, Shafiq slaps it hard... and straight to short midwicket! He falls short of a century, Pakistan fall short of the mammoth total that looked on the cards and England can be mighty pleased with their hard work this morning. 378/10
18.4 to Shoaib Malik, shortish, nurdled off the hips for a singl- no, taken at short leg! Brilliant from Bairstow, who holds the ball aloft as his team-mates mob him! Malik might not appreciate the effort as he heads off but that was a terrific catch, the ball was clipped firmly at Bairstow, who took it on the chest and then leapt forwards to grab it on the rebound one-handed. 58/2
113.5 to Yasir Shah, spins, takes the edge, and gone! Yasir chances his arm, swishes the bat and presents a straightforward catch to slip... First wicket in the match for Rashid, Pakistan rather undoing some of their hard work. 370/8

Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Moeen Ali, 1.4 ov), 2-14 (Ian Bell, 4.1 ov), 3-127 (Alastair Cook, 35.4 ov), 4-206 (Joe Root, 57.3 ov), 5-212 (Ben Stokes, 61.3 ov), 6-216 (Jos Buttler, 63.6 ov), 7-218 (Adil Rashid, 66.2 ov), 8-223 (Jonny Bairstow, 66.6 ov), 9-233 (Mark Wood, 70.2 ov), 10-242 (James Anderson, 75.2 ov)
4.1 to IR Bell, outstanding delivery, full length, drawing the stroke, nibbling away, taking the edge. Textbook dismissal and Bell screams in anguish as he knows he's a goner!. 14/2
75.2 to JM Anderson, short ball, hits the shoulder of the bat, taken by Sarfraz! That will finish it, England wrapped up neatly with a bow to give Pakistan a hefty lead... Imran gets his second, via a looping catch to the keeper. 242/10
1.4 to MM Ali, on the pads, and jabbed reflexively to Shan Masood at short leg! Brilliant reactions, as that was off the middle of the bat, really soft hands, allowing the ball to nestle in his spread fingers. England have lost their first wicket!. 5/1
57.3 to JE Root, driven, big nick, and Root's eagerness to put bat on ball is his undoing! Sarfraz makes good ground to gather, and that is a priceless early breakthrough as England's star man departs.... 206/4
61.3 to BA Stokes, no arguing about that catch though! This one sizzled through, lifting outside off stump, luring an injudicious poke from a flat-footed Stokes, and Sarfraz takes off to his left to snaffle the chance in both gloves!. 212/5
63.6 to JC Buttler, the change of angle does the trick! Buttler fails to adjust to the ball shaping back into him, hangs his bat in the line of his stumps, and a feathered nick gives Wahab his third of a formidable spell!. 216/6
35.4 to AN Cook, off the face of the bat and straight to leg slip! Massive breakthrough, and Cook was suckered by that field change!. 127/3
66.2 to AU Rashid, tossed up, Rashid slogs across and the line - and spoons a simple catch into the covers! Yasir has his second wicket, donated by his opposite number. That was an awful shot, Rashid left looking gormlessly out towards deep midwicket as Pakistan celebrated. 218/7
66.6 to JM Bairstow, skidding on, flatter to strike Bairstow in front of leg - and up goes the finger! Bairstow reviews but he will need a massive slice of luck for DRS to save him, yep, the ball is shown to have landed on middle and leg, would have clattered the stumps. Yasir has been calibrating his sights for a while and he has finally pinned Bairstow with a perfect slider. 223/8
70.2 to MA Wood, taken at slip, high above his head... Yasir believes he's got another but Reiffel asks the third umpire for some assistance, I think to see if it was a bump ball. The delivery was very full, right up on the crease, there's a big rip and looks like an outside edge before Wood's bat then hit the ground, so Reiffel is happy and up goes the finger... only for Wood to then review it himself! He doesn't think he hit it but Chris Gaffaney, having seen it several times already, quickly disabuses him and the decision stands. Looked fairly clear and certainly no grounds to overturn the on-field call. 233/9

2.4 to Shan Masood, tighter line, simple edge, Buttler makes immediate amends behind the stumps, and Anderson has Masood for the fourth innings in a row!. 1/1
64.2 to Misbah-ul-Haq, driven and caught! Misbah fails to pick Anderson's offspinner, and fails to add to his overnight 87. He's slapped a tame catch to Alastair Cook at mid-off, and England have their breakthrough!. 224/4
7.5 to Shoaib Malik, damn right he can! Fast and furiously full, Shoaib drove flat-footedly once again, he was anchored on the crease, expecting the bouncer, and instead he's splattered his own stumps!. 16/2
21.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, goes for the drive and it's edged to slip! Wood leaps in celebration, he's got his fifth wicket in the match, providing England with a sliver of hope and lots of inspiration... Not a pretty stroke from Hafeez and it was snapped up. 83/3
94.6 to Asad Shafiq, big spin, trapped on the crease, pinned on the front pad, up goes the finger! But Asad has reviewed. Was it doing too much? Nope, it was not. That is the end of that.. 354/6
91.4 to Younis Khan, a massive mow across the line from Younis, who finally runs out of patience. A huge spiralling top-edge flies out to no-man's land behind the bowler's head, where Moeen Ali makes excellent ground, running back from mid-on, and clings on with a sliding sprawl. Well judged. 337/5

Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Moeen Ali, 4.4 ov), 2-19 (Alastair Cook, 9.4 ov), 3-121 (Ian Bell, 44.1 ov), 4-157 (Joe Root, 66.6 ov), 5-163 (Jonny Bairstow, 71.5 ov), 6-178 (Jos Buttler, 80.6 ov), 7-193 (Ben Stokes, 88.3 ov), 8-253 (Stuart Broad, 103.3 ov), 9-308 (Mark Wood, 132.5 ov), 10-312 (Adil Rashid, 137.3 ov)
4.4 to MM Ali, edged, and Moeen departs! A wafty drive, far enough outside off to tempt the stroke, and Younis at second slip gobbles the offering at chest height!. 9/1
88.3 to BA Stokes, tailing away and steered to slip, Stokes raises the white flag with a very tame dismissal and England are seven down! It was short enough to leave, wide enough to leave but, as in the first innings, Stokes wants to feel bat on ball and he chased it straight into Misbah's midriff. 193/7
103.3 to SCJ Broad, play that if you can! Absolutely impeccable inswinging yorker, as full as a full moon, swinging fast and late, and smashing the base of middle stump!. 253/8
9.4 to AN Cook, goes for the sweep, top-edged out towards deep backward square... and taken! Yasir hops around in delight, he's got his man again, getting a bit of extra bounce out of the rough. Cook's sojourn is a brief one this time and if he hasn't got the stomach for the fight then I don't fancy the chances for the rest of them. 19/2
71.5 to JM Bairstow, oh cripes, that's cleaned him up! A pretty awful shot, as Bairstow wafted tamely around his front pad without much conviction or footwork. A well-flighted googly sneaks through the gap and shivers his timbers!. 163/5
80.6 to JC Buttler, beautiful leg-spin bowling! Perfect line and length, turns, bounces, attacks the edge, carries to slip, impeccable and England are six-down!. 178/6
137.3 to AU Rashid, gone! Rashid has driven loosely into the covers, Pakistan have won the Test match! Why did he chase that? The massive rip from Yasir played its part ... he felt he needed to be firm in his shot selection with so many men circling, but he chose the wrong ball to larrup. 312/10
44.1 to IR Bell, Bell attempts to leave and the ball ends up in the hands of slip, Sarfraz comes running down the pitch in celebration... Oxenford doesn't give it but Misbah decides to review the not-out decision. Was there glove involved? Yes! The ball bounced up, past the front pad and just brushed Bell's top hand on its way through to Younis via the keeper's glove! Pakistan have broken through. 121/3
66.6 to JE Root, flighted, there's some turn... and it's snapped up at slip! Root doesn't immediately go anywhere and the umpires are going to check the catch is clean but I think this is curtains. Yes, straight into Younis' paws, altogether much clearer than the one in the first innings. Root wasn't quite as far forward as he has been, it gripped and clipped the edge - Pakistan have broken through and its the wicket they wanted most!. 157/4
132.5 to MA Wood, is this the wicket? The umpires are conferring to make sure the catch is clean, but Pakistan are in no doubt whatsoever! Turn and bounce, brushes the glove and scooped up in the gully to end a magnificent effort from Wood. Hafeez, as if on cue, makes amends!. 308/9
