Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Alex Hales, 6.6 ov), 2-210 (Alastair Cook, 55.4 ov), 3-238 (James Vince, 63.6 ov), 4-311 (Gary Ballance, 85.1 ov), 5-414 (Chris Woakes, 113.4 ov), 6-471 (Ben Stokes, 130.1 ov), 7-577 (Joe Root, 150.2 ov), 8-589 (Jonny Bairstow, 152.2 ov)
6.6 to AD Hales, tim-ber! Amir blows through Hales and Pakistan have their first! What a cracking delivery this was, full and swooping back on Hales to shatter his stumps and send Amir off on that familiar arms-spread celebratory gallop. Bit of a Khyber Pass between Hales' bat and pad but it was still pretty scintillating stuff. 25/1
55.4 to AN Cook, bowled him! Much fuller from Amir, keeps a fraction low as it takes the under-side of Cook's defensive push and somehow torpedoes through to his off stump! What a timely wicket for Pakistan, but the end of a tremendous innings from England's captain .... 210/2
63.6 to JM Vince, goes full, entices the drive... and this time Sarfraz bags the catch! Up goes the finger from Rod Tucker and although Vince looks a bit bemused and goes to have a chat with his partner, he eventually decides not to bother with a review. His bat hit the floor as it came through but Snicko suggests there was a thin feather of bat, too. Vince again fails to convince and England are three down. 238/3
85.1 to GS Ballance, bowled him! Ballance looked to have done the hard work and bedded into his innings, but out comes a flimsy cross-batted waft at a short ball, angled in from over the wicket. A decent delivery that moved late and cramped him for room on the cut, but why change what had been serving him so well? A disappointing end to a doughty knock. 311/4
130.1 to BA Stokes, round the wicket, down the leg side, an avid appeal from Sarfraz for a gloved catch, and well, we've not looked at DRS yet in this match, so why not? Let's review it. There is definitely a small mark on Hot Spot, and there's a spike on Snicko too ... but the umpire is not entirely sure they match up. Lots of deliberation and different angles, but it's going to come down to gut instinct for the third umpire, Joel Wilson, and eventually he's seen enough to be convinced!. 471/6
150.2 to JE Root, full-length offcutter, Root has a big wind-up and a slog across the line. It skies up in the air off the toe, and who wants this? Hafeez gallops in from the deep, clings on well with a dive, and that is the end of a brilliant career-best innings!. 577/7
152.2 to JM Bairstow, another offcutter, swiped high in the air, a simple catch to long-off, and that will be the declaration!. 589/8
113.4 to CR Woakes, and he has a wicket! Woakes just punches one back to the Yasir. Did it stop in the pitch? Was back of a length, Woakes looking to play through the leg side but just offered a simple return catch. 414/5

TOTAL63.4 Ov (RR: 3.10)198
Fall of wickets: 1-27 (Mohammad Hafeez, 12.6 ov), 2-43 (Azhar Ali, 18.6 ov), 3-48 (Younis Khan, 21.3 ov), 4-53 (Rahat Ali, 22.5 ov), 5-71 (Shan Masood, 28.5 ov), 6-76 (Asad Shafiq, 35.2 ov), 7-112 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 41.2 ov), 8-119 (Yasir Shah, 44.5 ov), 9-179 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 59.6 ov), 10-198 (Wahab Riaz, 63.4 ov)
28.5 to Shan Masood, edged, and that's the end of that! Climbs on Masood outside off, draws an involuntary stab, and Root at second slip pouches a simple waist-high chance to his right. 71/5
35.2 to Asad Shafiq, finds the man this time! Picks out backward point, a pretty poor shot really. England's plan works perfectly, the man placed behind point, Broad offers up the full delivery outside off and Shafiq can't resist the drive which offers a simple catch. 76/6
59.6 to Misbah-ul-Haq, he's got Misbah! Top edge sweep to short fine leg, where his opposite number takes the catch. Couldn't quite get over the ball, and a simple, loopy catch. Can't bowl at Misbah? Moeen's got him twice now in consecutive innings. 179/9
63.4 to Wahab Riaz, picks out deep midwicket...Hales picks out the catch and then runs off the field. 198/10
12.6 to Mohammad Hafeez, there's the breakthrough, Woakes in his first over! Hafeez feeling for a length ball outside off, could have left it, bat hanging away from the body. Root snaffles the chance at second slip. 27/1
18.6 to Azhar Ali, and another! He can do no wrong...odd dismissal, Azhar jabbing hard at a length delivery and pops the ball high(ish) Woakes' right and he grabs it with one hand. Azhar's bat came across the line, not playing straight. 43/2
22.5 to Rahat Ali, and there you go! Short ball, on target around the neck area, Rahat fending away with any real idea what to do and it loops up to short leg. Suspect he may not get the gig again. 53/4
44.5 to Yasir Shah, and another catch for Root! Back of a length outside off, Yasir sparring at it and this flies into the bucket hands of Root at second slip. Four in the innings for him now. 119/8
21.3 to Younis Khan, caught down the leg side! Stokes has could hear the nick, off the face of the bat as he tried to work away a short-of-a-length delivery which was angling towards the leg side. 48/3
41.2 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, gone now! Edged to second slip. Stokes drags the length back, Sarfraz still keen to get forward, pushes hard outside off and gets a thick edge which flies at chest height to the cordon. Root snaffling them well. It was fun while it lasted. 112/7

Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Shan Masood, 4.3 ov), 2-25 (Azhar Ali, 10.2 ov), 3-83 (Mohammad Hafeez, 25.3 ov), 4-102 (Younis Khan, 31.3 ov), 5-145 (Misbah-ul-Haq, 45.5 ov), 6-163 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 49.3 ov), 7-167 (Asad Shafiq, 50.2 ov), 8-190 (Yasir Shah, 58.4 ov), 9-208 (Wahab Riaz, 63.2 ov), 10-234 (Mohammad Amir, 70.3 ov)
4.3 to Shan Masood, edged, lobs to Cook at first slip who slips his fingers under a looping chance and there is the breakthrough! Too simple in the end, hanging out there in the channel, drawing the uncertain push, and that is six innings in a row for Anderson against Masood. 7/1
10.2 to Azhar Ali, inswinger, and that's out! Anderson gets tighter to the stumps, slides in his variation, and Azhar had shuffled right across his stumps to play to leg. Strikes the knee-roll, probably hitting leg, and Azhar chooses not to review. 25/2
50.2 to Asad Shafiq, huge appeal for lbw! A full ball that nips back and takes Shafiq on the back leg. Given not out and Cook reviews. Was there an edge? Don't think so, took the front pad first then the back pad so that was the two noises. Angling down leg side? No, it's smashing leg stump. This will be overturned, and it's seven down. 167/7
25.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, the breakthrough for Moeen! He chips in again. Good spin on this, turns enough to take the inside edge as Hafeez comes forward, goes into the pad and loops nicely to short leg. 83/3
31.3 to Younis Khan, he's found long-on! What a dismissal in the circumstances. Moeen has done it again. Younis down the pitch with a huge swipe, comes off the bottom of the bat, hasn't got the distance, and Hales steadies under the catch at long-on. Was he defeated a touch in the flight? He wasn't completely to the pitch. 102/4
58.4 to Yasir Shah, that's stone dead! He goes back to a shorter ball, shapes for a pull, it perhaps keeps a little low and strikes him in front of middle on the back leg. 190/8
45.5 to Misbah-ul-Haq, Golden Arm strikes! Outside off, full and floaty and a whole load of not a lot, really. Technically a yorker, but so wide that Misbah had no business getting his bat involved. But he did, and the upshot was a fat inside-edge into his own timbers!. 145/5
49.3 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, given caught down the leg side! Sarfraz has called for the review although he didn't seem convinced. Was it glove onto jumper? We'll need Hot Spot, I think. Given out on the field. Yes, it has whacked the bottom glove. He's gone. 163/6
70.3 to Mohammad Amir, that's it, all over! Woakes finishes it off. Amir drives on the up and picks out Broad at mid-off who suggests he didn't really pick up the ball. But he held on anyway. Another first-over-of-a-spell wicket for Woakes!. 234/10
63.2 to Wahab Riaz, what a game he's having! Takes Root two balls. Tosses it wide outside off, Wahab goes for the slog-sweep and gets a big top edge that Cook pouches as he runs round from short fine leg. 208/9
