Tim Bresnan301816.0082000
1.2 to Kamran Akmal, Kamran goes early, Bresnan strikes! An ugly swipe across the line from Kamran, trying to slog a pull to a ball that just wasn't short enough for the shot and his nightmare summer with the bat continues. 13/1
Stuart Broad403208.0062000
Graeme Swann401423.50140000
6.5 to Mohammad Yousuf, gone! Yousuf falls! This time he tried to whip the ball away in the air with the turn, but succeeds only in giving Morgan an easy catch running in from the midwicket boundary. A good start from him, especially once he settled against Broad, but he's gone now. 50/2
8.5 to Shahzaib Hasan, Shahzaib goes, paying the price for impatience! He was looking increasingly frenetic at the crease, trying to hit everything too hard. This time he charged down the track, head in the air, and flailed at a flighted delivery from Swann. Unsurprisingly, he got nowhere near it, the ball spinning in sharply, and Davies has the bails off in a flash. 56/3
Michael Yardy402115.25121000
15.1 to Fawad Alam, finally the torture is over, it's been a truly awful innings and England may be disappointed to see him go, shortish ball that he ends up chipping back off the leading edge to gift Yardy a wicket. Big roar from the crowd it's BoomBoom time!. 88/4

Abdul Razzaq2020010.0022000
Shoaib Akhtar412325.75142010
1.4 to C Kieswetter, Shoaib strikes! Three dot balls and the pressure was getting to Kieswetter, he aimed an enormous swipe to leg but succeeded only in getting a thick edge. Kamran holds on to the chance, and Shoaib's trademark airplane celebration comes out! He blows a kiss to Kieswetter as he runs past him too!. 9/1
5.6 to RS Bopara, what an effort! Two men with a combined age of 71 get together to remove Bopara! It was another quick, length delivery from Shoaib just outside off and Bopara tried to heave it to long-on. He got right underneath though, and Yousuf backpeddled as quickly as he could from mid-on, tottering slightly as he went but he managed to cling on. Smiles all round. 42/2
Wahab Riaz201105.5051000
Shahid Afridi402726.7593000
7.6 to PD Collingwood, gone this time! Afridi really held this one back, very slow through the air and it was the legspinner. It was pitched slightly short and Collingwood was waiting to thump a pull over midwicket, but the ball took the inside edge of his bat and cannoned into the stumps. Afridi strikes in his first over!. 55/3
9.6 to LJ Wright, bowled! Wright shuffled across to off and tried to paddle-sweep the ball away, but it was too full for the shot, sneaking past the bat and crashing into the stumps! Afridi has another one, and Pakistan are right in this game. 62/5
Umar Gul2.101717.8453000
8.6 to SM Davies, it doesn't matter, he's got a wicket with his next ball! Gul strikes to remove the set batsman and Davies departs. The ball was back of a length, but not all that short. Davies played a whipped-pull off his hip but hit the ball in the air and straight to Riaz. 57/4
