Shaheen Shah Afridi33.4512123.5915317013
4.3 to RJ Burns, caught at third slip! or is it? Soft signal is out but Burns is waiting. And that looks like it might be a safe catch. Fingers nicely under the ball by Shan Masood and Burns will have to go. Afridi has made the first breakthrough. Got it to pitch on a length and move away enough to take the edge as he was coming forward to defend. The ball was dying on Masood but he did well to take it cleanly.. 12/1
154.4 to SCJ Broad, bowled 'im neck and crop! Shaheen blasts out Broad with an inswinger, full enough and rattling middle as he stepped away... and that's it, England have declared. 583/8
Mohammad Abbas3388202.481588000
Yasir Shah39317324.4314014400
18.2 to DP Sibley, hit on the pads as he skips down, umpire Gough thinks about it... and up goes the finger! Sibley consults with his partner and then reviews, but looks like he is going to pay for playing across a straight one. Couldn't quite get to the pitch and it straightened a touch then skidded into the pad. Hitting middle stump three-quarters of the way up, that's plumb!. 73/2
38.6 to OJ Pope, cleaned him up! Pinned to the back foot, and he was in no position to play that. It burst through the gate to knock the stumps back. Quicker one by Yasir and Pope was caught cemented to the crease. He wasn't expecting the quicker one and probably thought it'll turn more than it did, consequently leaving a gap through which the ball fizzed. 127/4
Naseem Shah27610914.0311517000
35.2 to JE Root, peach gets him. Not much Root could have done about that. Pitches on back of a length and jags away sharply. The line meant Root had to play at it, the movement meant it took a healthy outside edge leaving him squared up. Rizwan flings himself to his right to ensure a beautiful ball gets a deserved wicket. 114/3
Fawad Alam1204623.83411100
144.2 to JC Buttler, chipped back, Fawad has a Test wicket! Maybe a tired shot, Buttler's never batted this long, after all... was looking to steer one down the ground and just offered up a simple return chance, gleefully celebrated as Fawad sprung across to his right. But he'll get a warm ovation from his team-mates as he walks off after a career-shaping innings. 530/6
148.3 to CR Woakes, comes down, picks out cover! Another for Fawad Alam, but it's barely celebrated on the field... Looking to go over the off side but sliced it for a simple catch. Woakes mooches off, but it looks like everyone else will stay on. 547/7
Shan Masood311103.66111000
Asad Shafiq702413.42281101
132.2 to Z Crawley, and he's stumped down leg side. No triple century for Zak Crawley but what a fabulous innings. Was skipping down the track, Asad fired it down leg side. Crawley missed, partly due to tiredness too maybe. Rizwan completed the rest. He's applauded all the way back to the dressing room and the Pakistan players too go up and congratulate him, good to see.. 486/5

James Anderson2335652.431076000
2.3 to Shan Masood, that looks plumb and is given. Masood has gone for the review. This was beautifully done by Anderson, gently swerving away from him in the air, pitching on middle and leg and straightening to hit him on the knee roll when he was half forward. And it's three reds on the DRS, so Masood has to be on his way. Dismissed by Anderson for the 8th time in Tests. 6/1
4.1 to Abid Ali, caught in the slips and this is disastrous for Pakistan. Anderson hit the seam and got it to move away, took the shoulder of the bat as he was pushing forward in defence, good low catch at second slip. Anderson five away from 600 Test wickets. 11/2
10.5 to Babar Azam, rapped him in front and Babar is not going to review. That was plumb as plumb. After keeping it going away, he darts this one in at a sharp angle, catches Babar on the knee-roll in line with the off stump. Anderson has broken the back of Pakistan you'd think with that wicket. 24/3
12.5 to Asad Shafiq, gottim, catching practice for slip! Tame way to go for Shafiq, hanging his bat out in the corridor and flinching a thick outside edge straight to England's captain, who accepts it gleefully... as does Anderson, who's now up to 597 Test wickets!. 30/4
92.6 to Naseem Shah, edged to slip, SIBLEY HOLDS THIS ONE! Fenced off the back foot, thick edge and it flies low to third slip, this time it's taken, Test wicket No598 for Anderson, and his 29th five-wicket haul!. 273/10
Stuart Broad2054022.001004000
81.2 to Yasir Shah, edged and taken The new ball does the trick. Bounces up off a length higher than the old ball would, Yasir is on the front foot and looking to defend into the offside but it bounces up to catch the shoulder of his bat. Flying fairly fast but Root does well at first slip to hold it above his head with both hands. 241/7
85.1 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, superman catch from Buttler flying to his right. Broad banged it in short but mis-directed a bit I thought. Did the job though as Afridi tries to play it down fine from his rib-cage. Only gets a tickle. Buttler launches to his right and comes up with ball in his outstretched glove. Brilliantly done.. 247/8
Jofra Archer1735803.418210010
Chris Woakes1524212.80693002
75.1 to Mohammad Rizwan, caught down the legside. That's an unlikely dismissal for a set batsman and Rizwan will be unhappy to get out that way but he's done really well. Length ball on leg stump, seaming inwards ends up down the pads and he tries to tickle it fine. Too fine as it turns out and a diving Buttler completes a good take to his left. 213/6
Dom Bess1826813.77777100
36.2 to Fawad Alam, lures him out, takes the edge - Bess gets his man! Clear edge, spin and bounce as Alam played a long way outside his eyeline. Success for Bess, found the right length and it spat to clip the shoulder of the bat, Buttler snaffling the chance cleanly going up and to his left. 75/5

James Anderson1934522.36902000
49.5 to Abid Ali, coming back in, pinned on the stumps, umpire Gough gives it! Abid is going to review, but this only needs to be clipping... and clipping it is, that's Test wicket 599 for Anderson! Hanging back, wary of the ball reversing away from him, couldn't get the bat down and Abid's dogged knock is over. Another tight lbw, luck with Anderson on this one. 88/2
61.2 to Azhar Ali, wicket No.600 has arrived! And poetically enough after all those drops, it's a catch to the lone slip. Generous applause from those at the ground. And he's got the first-innings centurion too, the captain. This was the perfect line, millimetres outside off, pitched a fraction short of a length and moved away. I think Azhar wasn't expecting it to bounce as much as it did, takes the shoulder of the bat as he's looking to prod - slightly away from the body - and flies at good pace to Root. The captain ain't dropping that one. You'd think it's about the perfect Anderson ball to get a landmark wicket.. 109/3
Stuart Broad14.152711.90754000
23.4 to Shan Masood, nipping back, Masood offers no shot... up goes the finger! Masood asks for the review but we know how that usually goes against Michael Gough. Pitched in line, straightening juuuusssst enough to clip off, umpire's call! Unlucky for the batsman? Perhaps, although bowlers will say clipping the stumps usually does the job. England strike in the 24th over of the innings. 49/1

79.4 to Asad Shafiq, Root's got a wicket! Taken smartly at bat-pad! Shafiq props forward tamely and gets a thin edge on to the front pad, Bracey stayed low to hold on... That'll keep England interested a bit longer. 172/4
