Sohail Khan914725.22315000
40.4 to JC Buttler, tip-top yorker! Gets rid of one of the more dangerous lower-order batsmen in the World Cup with a delivery that was just perfect. Beats Buttler for pace, makes him realise it's danger so very late and despite him trying to dig it out, it crashes into the base of off stump. 184/6
48.5 to JE Root, slower ball does him in! It's the back of the hand one again and Root's reverse paddle, as much power as he attempted to get into it, ends up being pouched by short fine leg. End of an innings that England needed rather badly. 244/7
Ehsan Adil712713.85262000
1.2 to MM Ali, oops, that's a bit of a soft way to go for Moeen. Appears he's pulled out the flick a bit too early against a back of a length delivery, which more than deserved the shot considering it was on the pads, but ends up providing a simple catch to cover off the leading edge. 5/1
Wahab Riaz1004614.60312030
49.2 to SCJ Broad, leave it to Misbah to show how it's done! Broad has skewed a slog up and it swirls in the region of mid-on, the fielder had to run from sun and into the shade, all the while looking over his shoulder to track the ball and eventually flings his hands out to his left and behind him to snap up a top catch. 246/8
Shahid Afridi1005915.90304140
15.4 to AD Hales, another soft dismissal! It was a quick, flat delivery on middle and Hales has popped it to short midwicket. Star Man strikes, and Hales throws his head back in disbelief. Poor yield after the time he spent out there. 69/2
Haris Sohail402105.2581010
Yasir Shah1014534.50321110
28.1 to GS Ballance, third softie of the match! How frustrating must that feel for England. Picked a length ball, played a massive slog sweep and has picked out the man at deep midwicket to pin-point precision. End of a decent innings, but he would have wanted to push on a lot further considering how he stayed patient early on against good, consistent seam bowling. 135/3
28.4 to EJG Morgan, hello hello! Morgan is out to a full toss! Looks to be a bit too cute with a lap sweep and the ball shaves off the outside half of the bat to first slip. Now England are just inventing ways to get out. 135/4
34.6 to RS Bopara, right through! Might be a googly and if it was, he's playing all around it. Lazy little drive has just enough gap between bat and pad for the ball to sneak through. 157/5

James Anderson1004224.20344020
4.1 to Ahmed Shehzad, Pakistan find themselves in an early strife at 10-2, Jimmy has his first wicket. This was on a back of a length and curling away outside off, Shehzad pushes at it, gets an outside edge, which is snaffled by Tredwell again at second slip, diving quickly to his left. 10/2
47.4 to Sohaib Maqsood, edged and taken by Buttler, diving to his right. Maqsood's cameo comes to an end. This was on a length and outside off, he wants to drive through the covers with his feet in cement. The ball catches the outside edge, Buttler does the rest. 243/6
Stuart Broad9.505125.18377030
1.1 to Nasir Jamshed, Jamshed has nicked off, he is gone for 1. This was wide outside off, Nasir Jamshed has a loose waft at it with his feet paralysed to the crease and offers a simple catch to Tredwell at second slip. 2/1
44.3 to Umar Akmal, Broad exults and helps England claw their way back. Or is it all too late for England? This was a shortish legcutter outside off, Umar may have been a touch early into his lash through the offside after backing away. The ball grazes the outside edge and carries through to Buttler. The bowler ran his fingers across the ball to dupe Umar. 211/5
Chris Jordan905115.66282231
13.2 to Younis Khan, Younis has holed out, the short ball does the trick for Jordan. This was banged in short and outside off, this meant that the batsman had to drag the pull. He drags it over backward square leg, Ballance dives forward and completes a low catch. Younis was also hurried onto the shot.. 43/3
James Tredwell904314.77230100
22.1 to Haris Sohail, something had to give and Haris perishes. Skips down the wicket and chips one down long-on's throat. Ballance, running around to his right, takes a smart catch. Set batsman gone for Pakistan. 78/4
