TOTAL91.2 Ov (RR: 2.58)236
Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Shan Masood, 2.2 ov), 2-78 (Azhar Ali, 30.5 ov), 3-102 (Abid Ali, 37.4 ov), 4-117 (Asad Shafiq, 42.3 ov), 5-120 (Fawad Alam, 43.5 ov), 6-158 (Babar Azam, 63.4 ov), 7-171 (Yasir Shah, 68.3 ov), 8-176 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 74.5 ov), 9-215 (Mohammad Abbas, 85.1 ov), 10-236 (Mohammad Rizwan, 91.2 ov)
2.2 to Shan Masood, this is closer, gone! Pitched in line, and was coming back in. Shan needed to get his bat in the way of that, and the moment he didn't, that was it. Doesn't even consider reviewing. Brilliant start for England. 6/1
30.5 to Azhar Ali, finally, Pakistan's luck runs out! Can't argue England didn't deserve this. Chipping away at the edge all afternoon, and Azhar finally gets a hefty edge that loops up for the slips. For a change, Burns actually holds on to it, and the Pakistan captain's woes continue. 78/2
68.3 to Yasir Shah, pitched up, chewed up, gobbled up! Yasir again throws the kitchen sink at a full ball in the channel, but only manages to gurgle an outside edge through to Buttler! Classic outswinger and Yasir bites, another one on the reel for Anderson. 171/7
42.3 to Asad Shafiq, length ball, holds its line, steered to third slip! Sibley takes a low catch, again making up for his earlier error, and England have another! Bit soft really, from Shafiq, dragged forward by one that was probably wide enough to leave... just a limp push and a thick edge, and Broad is on the board. 117/4
63.4 to Babar Azam, teasing line, Babar nicks one! Broad breaks the resistance after almost 20 overs of toil between wickets... It's the regulation fourth-stump seamer that does it, beautiful line if a fraction short; looked for a second like it might have flicked the pocket of his back leg, but he knew there was bat involved and heads for the exit. 158/6
85.1 to Mohammad Abbas, pinned in front of off, that's plumb! Abbas asks for the review but I think he's hoping for divine intervention here... Yep, nipping back, bat nowhere near ball, would have rattled middle stump! Broad just about remembered to appeal at the last minute, as Kettleborough raised the finger in approval. 215/9
91.2 to Mohammad Rizwan, and we finally see the end of the innings. Rizwan scoops it high into the air and Zak Crawley at cover-point is primely poised to take that. It's been an excellent knock from Rizwan. He's frustrated the hosts and 236 is a more than respectable total, especially given the situation Pakistan were in at 176 for 8. 236/10
37.4 to Abid Ali, edged to slip, taken this time! Excellent line from Curran, maybe got this one to dart away after shaping in, Abid hasn't been watertight in that channel - as the control percentage dictates - and he finally pays with his wicket. Thick edge as the ball skipped up and hit the shoulder of the bat, Burns gobbles up the chance. 102/3
43.5 to Fawad Alam, struck on the pads, Alam tangled up trying to defend.... did it pitch in line? Kettleborough doesn't think so but England review; it was definitely straight, so whether it landed on leg stump is the question. DRS says yes, Alam's long wait ends in a four-ball duck! Smashing the top of middle stump, according to Hawk-Eye. Quacker-jack ball to the crabby Alam, who shuffles off to the dressing room. 120/5

TOTAL43.1 Ov (RR: 2.54)110/4d
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Rory Burns, 0.4 ov), 2-91 (Zak Crawley, 31.1 ov), 3-92 (Dom Sibley, 33.3 ov), 4-105 (Ollie Pope, 38.4 ov)
0.4 to RJ Burns, and this time there's no reprieve for Burns! This is so, so good. Shaping away from off stump, and Burns' defensive prod goes straight to Asad Shafiq at second slip at waist height. England lose one early!. 0/1
31.1 to Z Crawley, big appeal, and he's given him! Crawley reviews straightaway. Pitched on length around middle stump and moved away off the seam, beating his bat and striking the front pad. Is height an issue? It's umpire's call on the wickets, which means it's upheld! Abbas strikes, removing the danger man, if that means anything in this Test. 91/2
33.3 to DP Sibley, given! Sibley goes trying to tickle one down the legside! Sibley has a history of trying to flirt with the one that goes down legside, and that's the one that traps him again!. 92/3
38.4 to OJ Pope, pinned to the crease, up goes the finger... Pope reviews but he does so with sad, puppy dog eyes. He's been done by the slider, playing back and can't get his bat down in time, definitely pad first and that is crashing into off stump, according to Hawk-Eye! Smartly done by Yasir, Pakistan chip out another. 105/4
