TOTAL109.3 Ov (RR: 2.97)326
Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Abid Ali, 15.1 ov), 2-43 (Azhar Ali, 18.1 ov), 3-139 (Babar Azam, 49.6 ov), 4-150 (Asad Shafiq, 56.5 ov), 5-176 (Mohammad Rizwan, 70.1 ov), 6-281 (Shadab Khan, 95.3 ov), 7-291 (Yasir Shah, 102.2 ov), 8-291 (Mohammad Abbas, 102.3 ov), 9-317 (Shan Masood, 107.1 ov), 10-326 (Naseem Shah, 109.3 ov)
49.6 to Babar Azam, caught at first slip! Beautiful bowling. You remember that ball earlier in the over that tempted the drive? And how Babar refused to take the bait? Well this time, he can't help himself. It's fuller. It's outside off. He thinks it's juicy. He thinks he's getting off the mark today with one of those patented cover drives for four. He ends up very very wrong. What a start for England. And guess who made it all happen? A guy whose name is on one of the ends at this ground. 139/3
56.5 to Asad Shafiq, edged and taken at second slip. Stokes dives to his left and snags the catch in front of Root at first slip. This on a length, threatens to angle in but straightens away and bounces, takes the outside edge near the shoulder of the bat and Stokes does the rest. Both Anderson and Broad have struck on the second morning. 150/4
107.1 to Shan Masood, nip-backer from Broad, from round the stumps, and Masood has been given out lbw. He calls for a review. The batsman had played down the wrong line, and is pinned on the back pad and the tracker returns umpire's call on leg stump. Broad produces the breakthrough, and England finally find a way past Masood. Top innings, nonetheless: 156 off 319 balls. Well done, Shan. 317/9
109.3 to Naseem Shah, back of a length and zipping away outside off, Shah hangs his bat out and has he nicked off? Buttler has gathered the ball cleanly this time, and snicko suggests that Shah has gloved it. Brushes the thumb on its way through to the keeper. 326/10
18.1 to Azhar Ali, huge appeal, Azhar's been sent on his way, but he's reviewing! It was so full from Woakes, thumping the pad as Azhar got in a tangle, but it was a swift retort, so did he hit it? Not before it hit the pad! It's smashing the timbers according to HawkEye, and Woakes is in the wickets!. 43/2
70.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, edged and gone! Wider on the crease from Woakes, another probing length, a simple feather through to the keeper. That was a tortured stay, and just reward for the disciplined Woakes. Rizwan was drawn forward, but his feet were stuck, and he paid the price. 176/5
15.1 to Abid Ali, clean through the gate! That's full, straight and aggressive. The short balls in the previous over earn their interest in the next. Abid is fractionally late coming forward, and to a bowler of Archer's wheels, that's fatal! Back goes the off stump, and England have their breakthrough!. 36/1
102.2 to Yasir Shah, pinned on the pads and up goes the finger! Yasir is trapped on the crease, playing across the line, he opts not to review, but it's surely worth a gamble as it's leg-sided... clipping leg as it happens. Another incision..... 291/7
102.3 to Mohammad Abbas, two in two! Archer hammers on the door, outside off, Abbas dangles the bat in defence, and Root completes a simple catch at first slip! Archer's on a hat-trick .... 291/8
95.3 to Shadab Khan, a wild wipe through the line, a massive top-edge, Root steadies himself at mid-on! England's tactics work! Never in doubt! The skipper's a genius! Shadab's desire to get the scoreboard moving proves his undoing, and he's given his innings away after a valiant stand!. 281/6

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Rory Burns, 0.4 ov), 2-12 (Dom Sibley, 3.2 ov), 3-12 (Ben Stokes, 5.3 ov), 4-62 (Joe Root, 19.5 ov), 5-127 (Ollie Pope, 44.3 ov), 6-159 (Jos Buttler, 53.2 ov), 7-161 (Dom Bess, 57.4 ov), 8-170 (Chris Woakes, 61.4 ov), 9-197 (Jofra Archer, 66.4 ov), 10-219 (James Anderson, 70.3 ov)
0.4 to RJ Burns, Afridi threatens to bring another full ball back into Burns, but this has straightened enough. Nice and full, pings the pad. Not given out lbw. Azhar Ali calls for a review. Is there an inside edge involved? Nope The ball hits the front pad, then ricochets onto the back pad. It would've clattered into middle stump. Fantastic start for Pakistan and Afridi. Good review from Azhar too. 4/1
3.2 to DP Sibley, Abbas pings the pad now and wins an lbw appeal. That's an Abbas special. Sibey's time to review. Nice and full, nipping back in sharply to catch him on the crease and hit the front pad. The tracker returns three reds, would've hit leg stump. All action from Pakistan's new-ball bowlers and the umpires. 12/2
5.3 to BA Stokes, Standing outside the crease? Shimming out from there? No problem for Abbas. He hits the top of off stump and wheels away in celebration. Pakistan's new-ball bowlers are on a roll at OT.Abbas pulls his length back seeing Stokes advance, then finds late movement, just enough movement against the angle to beat the outside edge and strike the top of off. What a ripper from Abbas. 12/3
44.3 to OJ Pope, that's outstanding fast bowling! Pope has just reacted as if he's been bitten by a sidewinder! Savage late lift from a full length, crashing off the splice and straight to gully! It all happened so quickly that there was scarcely a reaction. It was going to take a special ball to dislodge a special batsman. It's just been served up! Shadab scooped it well as the ball dropped late on him.. 127/5
19.5 to JE Root, Gottim! The faintest of edges, and Root is done! A fraction short, tempting Root into the cut, but the line was tight and the ball barely turned. He ended up cramping himself on the back foot, and now England are in serious bother once more!. 62/4
53.2 to JC Buttler, timbeeeeeeeeeeeeer! Yasir is off and whooping, Buttler leaving a gap as he props forward! Oh dear, after all that vigilant blocking, and then he plays for rather more turn than materialised, Yasir was on the mark and snuck the ball between bat and pad to rattle off stump. 159/6
57.4 to DM Bess, turn and bounce, balloons off the shoulder of the bat, well taken at slip! Shafiq had to fling himself to his right, but reeled in the chance, and Pakistan have another! Lured him forward and then ripped the legbreak, in contrast to the Buttler dismissal. Yasir going through his repertoire, Bess didn't last long. 161/7
61.4 to CR Woakes, straight through 'im! Quicker and skidding on as Woakes tries to swing to leg, instead gets his stumps rearranged! Don't think it was specifically a slider, but he pushed it through and bagged another. Four for Yasir and England are sinking into another post-prandial funk. 170/8
66.4 to JC Archer, what's he done here?? Caught off the glove trying to leave! Shadab gets amongst 'em, drew Archer forward and although he had kept his bat safely tucked in, the extra Old Trafford bounce meant it just brushed the top hand on its way through! Archer looks quizzical, but then heads for the dressing room. 197/9
70.3 to JM Anderson, another reverse sweep, and this time he doesn't play it so well! Misses as it bites on the line of middle and leg, and this is plumb! Up goes the finger, Anderson reviews as well he might... but that's smashing leg. England are all out!. 219/10

1.6 to Shan Masood, fired down the leg side, and strangled! That was a pretty rank ball, but it's done enough to dislodge the obdurate Masood for a duck! Just the slenderest feather as he closed the face on his hip, Buttler lobs the ball up in celebration, and now then, England have the wicket they needed!. 6/1
39.6 to Shadab Khan, vast appeal! If there's no inside-edge, that's surely stone-dead! Full length, tail back into the pads, thumped on the knee-roll, umpire Illingworth says no ... England review and that's smashing leg! Wow, that's a mighty double-whammy for England, this game is shifting, ever so slightly, back into the balance!. 122/7
45.5 to Yasir Shah, edged and grabbed by Buttler. On a length and outside off, Yasir stays leg-side of the ball and simply throws his bat at it. Thickly edged to the keeper behind the stumps. Yasir's fun is over. 158/9
46.4 to Naseem Shah, Archer knocks 'em over. Full, straight, simple. Naseem swings for the fences, and only connects with a whole lot of thin air. Archer nails the middle stump. 169/10
13.6 to Abid Ali, tries to sweep his way out of a hole... but ends up digging himself into trouble! Top-edged and pouched at deep square leg! Didn't take much to fluster Abid there, one ball spitting at him and he went for the aggressive option, only to miscue limply to the man set back. Buttery biscuit Bess does it for England. 33/2
19.5 to Babar Azam, edged to slip, Stokes snaffles this one! Woakes does it in his opening over, getting the big fish Babar. Shazam! Testing line, drew a loose push outside off, and Stokes went low to his left to scoop up the chance. 48/3
23.5 to Azhar Ali, full, straight and blown away! Ankle-bothering length, maybe a hint of reverse, Azhar was stepping across and closed off trying to work to leg, he won't bother to challenge the decision! Another big moment, as Woakes goes bam-bam. 63/4
38.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, pinned on the pads, and given! Huge moment, Pakistan review, but the on-field decision means a bail-trimmer would do for England. Tight line, full length, playing across the line, and a bail-trimmer it is! His feet went nowhere as Stokes found the nip-backer, and Rizwan's sparky innings is done!. 120/6
43.3 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, banged in short, and caught in a tangle! Afridi tried to get out of harm's way, but he succeeded only in splicing a looping chance to gully! Ben Stokes, what a monster!. 137/8

44.5 to OJ Pope, unplayable! Kangaroo bounce from a length and it smashes into Pope's top hand, Shadab running up from gully to complete the catch! Star Man celebration from Shaheen, no doubt about this one, and Pope can only trudge off his with head down... Another 10-run partnership is successfully dismantled by Pakistan! Gah, Afridi's overstep had made it 117! So close. 117/5
11.1 to RJ Burns, nips back into the pads, Kettleborough gives it! Burns doesn't take long to review though... Looked high to me, but the on-field call is in Abbas' favour here. Only needs to be clipping, and that's what it is! Umpire's call on the top of middle stump and Burns is clawed out! Struck him above the flap on the back leg, curving back in off the seam, Abbas makes the breakthrough for Pakistan. 22/1
38.4 to JE Root, gun-barrel straight, right in the channel, and snags the edge to first slip! That's excellent probing fast bowling from Naseem... fractionally shorter this time, rising into the splice, but it was all about the line. Had to play it, didn't play it well enough!. 96/3
35.6 to DP Sibley, over the wicket, a wild drive, and straight to slip! Sibley was happy to kick it out of the rough, but as soon as the angle changed, and the stumps were threatened, he lashed his hard hands through the line, and paid the price with a fat snick to Shafiq! Pakistan's dry spell reaps its rewards, and changes the tone of this chase!. 86/2
41.6 to BA Stokes, googly, I think, and it bounces BIG outside off, Stokes fenced at it and Pakistan went up in unison... Nothing doing from Kettleborough, but Azhar reviews, and this one looks to be more promising! Brilliantly taken at the second attempt by Rizwan, whether there was anything on it or not... and UltraEdge shows a spike! This kicked up at Stokes, up around the armpit, and tickled the glove on its way through! Huge review, huge wicket, huge moment in this chase. 106/4
77.5 to JC Buttler, He's missed the reverse sweep this time, and up goes the finger! Oh my, this is it... Buttler reviews, but this looks hopeful! A fraction fuller this time from Yasir, his bat was gone by the time the ball hit his boot ... and there's an agonised wait for ball tracker... still waiting! Umpire's call on height! He's gone!. 256/6
81.2 to SCJ Broad, Right up to the toes, thumped on the pads, that's plumb! Broad went for the sweep, Yasir knew it was coming, pushed it fuller, and even Broad doesn't bother to review that one!. 273/7
