Mohammad Amir1434112.92677000
47.5 to AN Cook, oh, that's a beauty - pings the top of off stump and Cook is a goner! Amir celebrates his first wicket, arms spread in the same fashion as when he clinched victory here two years ago. Cook has to trudge off, head down, but that was a fine knock and it took a brilliant ball to crowbar him from the crease. It's the angle he has struggled with against left-armers... but you don't get much more precise than that delivery. 149/5
Mohammad Abbas1472341.64775000
3.6 to MD Stoneman, bowled him! That is an absolute beauty and due reward for Abbas's diligence this morning. Full, threatening, seaming back through the gate, blasting the timbers with the batsman caught on the crease. Another failure for Stoneman, so here comes the skipper!. 12/1
53.5 to BA Stokes, huge appeal for lbw and he's gone on review! Given not out and Sarfraz has called the review. Looks stone dead if it has pitched in line. Stokes playing back, struck on the knee roll. It's pitched on leg stump and this is gone! Just a fraction more than 50% of the ball inside leg stump and it's hitting the top of middle. Top call from Sarfraz. 168/6
57.3 to DM Bess, another one taken at second slip!. Another England batsman lured into a drive. The ball was full outside off, Bess sends a thick edge to Shafiq. 180/8
57.5 to SCJ Broad, and he's given lbw! So Broad lasts just two balls. Abbas gets this fuller at the stumps and even Broad doesn't consider a review. Struck him low on the front pad.. 180/9
Hasan Ali15.225143.32718011
13.5 to JE Root, full, swinging, gone! That's a terrible miscalcuation from Root, Hasan dangled the bait, as unsubtle as a lump of seal blubber in a pond full of killer whales, and drew a massive wiping drive. A thin nick through to the keeper, and England's skipper departs in single figures!. 33/2
15.2 to DJ Malan, gottim, Malan nicks behind! Hasan has another, he's bounding around Lord's like Tigger in the Hundred Acre Wood... Finds his line to the lefty, lovely angle across and the ball just leaves Malan enough up the slope as he tries to drop his bat in defence. Thin edge, but Malan knew it, and immediately turns for the hutch. 43/3
54.1 to JC Buttler, super catch! Grabbed at second slip. England on the slide. Full outside off, Buttler going for the drive and it's plucked out of the air by Shafiq. Pakistan's slip catching has been dodgy for some time, that was very good. 168/7
58.2 to MA Wood, and it's all over! No mistake from Amir this time. A shorter delivery, Wood goes for the pull and splices it towards mid-on. Amir runs to the left, stretches and dives to take a good one. 184/10
Faheem Ashraf922813.11425000
36.1 to JM Bairstow, wide on the crease and Bairstow is beaten on the outside edge! Completely out of the blue, he had been looking so solid, but seemed to play for the angle rather than the seam movement, and back goes the off stump! Lord's is rather stunned into what was already a relatively post-prandial silence. Just when England were looking settled, they've gifted Pakistan an opening!. 100/4

James Anderson2668233.1512012000
45.5 to Azhar Ali, Anderson fires one in, smacking into the front pad - and given! Azhar lingers, thinks about the review... then turns on his heel. The switch does the trick for Anderson, bringing the ball back up the slope and into the knee roll. Hawk-Eye had it clipping the top of middle, so it wouldn't have been overturned. Huge wicket for England. 119/3
99.4 to Faheem Ashraf, timber! Anderson brings some relief, bit of nip back and Ashraf drags an inside edge into his stumps... Takes the catching out of the equation, which is usually the Pakistan way. Still, a handy knock from Faheem. 318/6
105.5 to Hasan Ali, gottim, spooned to gully! Sharp delivery from Anderson, prancing to hit the shoulder of the bat, well taken above his head by Buttler. 337/8
Stuart Broad2596112.441269001
5.3 to Imam-ul-Haq, huge appeal for lbw! Tucker again says not out Root calls the review. If this has pitched in line it looks out. It's pitched in line and that's smashing middle and off. England have their breakthrough. Imam caught on the crease against a fullish delivery.. 12/1
Mark Wood24.367423.021109010
36.6 to Haris Sohail, edged and gone! There it goes, Wood earns his reward for just mixing things up a bit. Banged it in at first to force Haris into his shell, then snagged his edge with the fuller swinging length. A fine innings, good bowling too, and that will be drinks to end another absorbing hour.... 87/2
114.3 to Mohammad Abbas, turned inside out, and that had been coming! Another bouncer, into the ribs, looping off the gloves, and Bairstow does well to deviate behind the stumps, diving low and forward to scoop up the offering. 363/9
Ben Stokes2257333.3110011000
70.5 to Asad Shafiq, oh, fenced to slip, gottim this time! A much simpler chance, looping to Malan and he plucks it from the sky - no third life for Shafiq! Stokes is the partnership-breaker, a real throat ball, perhaps taking out his frustration after the drop. 203/4
78.6 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, SARFRAZ, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? Another bumper, takes on the hook, a honking great top edge flies to fine leg... and Wood pouches it safely! Micky Arthur is shaking his head on the boundary as the players walk off for tea. That was not a great piece of shot selection, skipper. 227/5
104.5 to Shadab Khan, bouncer, gloved down the leg side, taken! Stokes digs out another, the short ball finally pays off against Shadab, but not before he's notched a valuable half-century. Good tumbling catch from Bairstow, on a tricky day behind the stumps. 332/7

Mohammad Amir18.133641.98904000
35.2 to DJ Malan, edged and taken! Amir provides the breakthrough and it's an excellent catch. In the channel outside off, a touch of reverse away (I think), draws Malan forward and finds the edge. It had to be Sarfraz's catch, wouldn't have reached first slip, and he dived across to pouch it. Dropped a similar one in Ireland. Top work. 91/3
35.4 to JM Bairstow, through him! Two in three balls. A ripper from Amir. On a good length, nips back past Bairstow's inside edge and clatters into off stump. You won't see much better from a left-arm quick. Bowling gold. 91/4
80.6 to MA Wood, he's edged this one! Lovely stuff from Amir. On a good length at off stump, angling across, Wood pressing forward and gets a thin outside edge through to the keeper. 241/8
82.1 to DM Bess, and it's all over! Bess is castled. Amir gets it full at off stump and it shatters the timbers as Bess goes for a drive. Might have kept a touch low.. 242/10
Mohammad Abbas1734142.41772000
1.5 to AN Cook, pinned on the knee roll and that's a huge breakthrough! Fuller length, nips back from a tight off stump line, and Cook doesn't even consider reviewing that! There's the reward for challenging the stumps with every delivery. The slightest deviation off the pitch, and you're in business!. 1/1
41.3 to JE Root, he's been given but has reviewed it! Suspect more out of hope than expectation. Good length, nips back, takes him on the knee roll. There's no bat involved. Clipping at worse, you would think. Never mind that, it's smashing leg stump. 110/6
79.2 to JC Buttler, and he's given lbw! But Buttler has reviewed. It looks good first up. Full, angled in, Buttler misses his drive and is taken on the front pad. No bat involved. That's gone, it's umpire's call on height. But smashing a fair amount of the stumps. 236/7
81.4 to SCJ Broad, edged and gone! England sliding fast this morning. A soft poke outside off, the ball angled across, he followed it and provided a low edge through to Sarfraz. What a game for Abbas.. 242/9
Faheem Ashraf923103.44405000
Hasan Ali1935803.05878020
Shadab Khan1926323.31778000
16.5 to MD Stoneman, that's kept low and taken off stump. Stoneman camped on the back foot, the ball pitches in the rough outside off, spins back and he is nowhere. Off stump pegged back. Though that did keep low, so perhaps he's a touch unfortunate, Stoneman had to be forward. 31/2
38.3 to BA Stokes, oh boy, another one bites the dust! Stokes has just whipped this into the hands of midwicket. Went back to a shorter delivery, eyed up the leg side, but it was a rather half-hearted effort with no placement and neatly taken moving to his right by the sub fielder. 104/5
