TOTAL158.3 Ov (RR: 3.33, 637 Mins)528/9d
Fall of wickets: 1-60 (Marcus Trescothick, 11.5 ov), 2-60 (Andrew Strauss, 12.5 ov), 3-88 (Kevin Pietersen, 18.4 ov), 4-321 (Alastair Cook, 94.5 ov), 5-441 (Paul Collingwood, 131.3 ov), 6-469 (Geraint Jones, 139.5 ov), 7-473 (Liam Plunkett, 141.5 ov), 8-515 (Matthew Hoggard, 152.3 ov), 9-525 (Steve Harmison, 156.2 ov)
94.5 to AN Cook, GONE! Crackerjack from Sami, full, straight and quick, swung back into the left-handed Cook who was too late on it. Cook gone for 105 – terrific start for Pakistan. 321/4
11.5 to ME Trescothick, but he’s gone now, plays away from his body – a willy, wally waft outside off-stump, gets a thin outside edge straight to Akmal. Pakistan strike. 60/1
12.5 to AJ Strauss, GONE! Hello, massive, etc. He was done by the previous ball. This one held its line, clever bit of bowling, traps him in front. Double strike for Pakistan: “one brings two” as so often happens, particularly when Pakistan are playing. 60/2
18.4 to KP Pietersen, the ball came back up the hill and looked to have just shaved off stump - although replays showed it was a good five or six inches too high. Pietersen shouldered arms, while Razzaq tucked into some high-fives. Razzaq had been probing around the off-stump for a while.. 88/3
131.3 to PD Collingwood, GONE! Brilliant from Kaneria, and he fully deserves it too. Drags Collingwood down the wicket – I think he was done in the flight, and the drift that a legspinner gets – and Kamran Akmal stumped him with consummate ease. End of a very fine innings. 441/5
139.5 to GO Jones, tried to sweep, caught on the back leg by one which would have gone on to hit the top of leg-stump. A long appeal and plenty of thought from Steve Bucknor who did his usual “Is he, isn’t he?” guessing game before putting Geraint Jones into his misery. The wrong’un proves the right’un for Kaneria, who has his second wicket.. 469/6
141.5 to LE Plunkett, a big flap results in a big outside edge to Imran Farhat at first (and only) slip who has a wide beam on his face as well he might after finally catching one. He opens his arms and looks Heavenwards. What butter-fingers?No surprises there about that wicket, though, as Kaneria had Plunkett in all sorts of trouble throughout this over.. 473/7
152.3 to MJ Hoggard, got him this time. Quicker ball from Afridi, slight drift into the right-handed Hoggard who was trapped right in front.. 515/8

TOTAL119.3 Ov (RR: 3.72, 513 Mins)445
Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Salman Butt, 9.3 ov), 2-28 (Faisal Iqbal, 9.5 ov), 3-65 (Imran Farhat, 17.5 ov), 4-68 (Mohammad Sami, 20.5 ov), 5-241 (Inzamam-ul-Haq, 62.2 ov), 6-300 (Abdul Razzaq, 83.3 ov), 7-399 (Kamran Akmal, 106.4 ov), 8-435 (Shahid Afridi, 114.3 ov), 9-436 (Umar Gul, 114.6 ov), 10-445 (Mohammad Yousuf, 119.3 ov)
20.5 to Mohammad Sami, got him this time! Straighter and quicker, Hoggard finds one to hold its line which goes up the slope, Sami feathers an edge to the wicketkeeper Jones. Great start by England to remove the nightwatchman in just the second over of the day. 68/4
114.3 to Shahid Afridi, fuller, swings into Afridi who attempts to hit him into the street, mistimes it and Ian Bell runs in from long-off to take a comfortable catch. That’s an absolutely vital wicket. Pakistan still trail by 93. 435/8
114.6 to Umar Gul, super bowling from Hoggard, absolutely on the money. The previous ball probably did it for Gul as Hoggard landed this one straighter, and Gul’s indeterminate poke finds the outside edge and Jones takes the simplest of catches. Double breakthrough for England and just one man left for Pakistan.. 436/9
9.3 to Salman Butt, loose drive results in a thick edge which flies to second slip. Excellent catch by Strauss. Harmison has found his line at last – and got the reward. Faisal Iqbal strides in.. 28/1
9.5 to Faisal Iqbal, screamer of a catch, absolute belter. Harmison found some extra bounce and his fearsome rearing delivery is fended to third slip where Collingwood plucks a stunner out of the air. Brilliant. Harmison is on a roll now. Mohammad Yousuf comes in for the last delivery of the over.. 28/2
83.3 to Abdul Razzaq, squared up horribly by one which was rising over offstump and a big nick flies through to the keeper. Harmison finds the right area at last and bags a wicket with the new ball.. 300/6
119.3 to Mohammad Yousuf, got him, and that’s the end. Yousuf edges this straight to Jones bringing the end to a quite brilliant innings. The crowd are on their feet, every England player applauding him and patting him on the back.. 445/10
17.5 to Imran Farhat, a misjudgement on the backfoot; the ball clipped the off-stump and did him with an absolute jaffer. 65/3
62.2 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, GOT HIM! Well well well, now then now then. Ball kept a little low, jagged back into the right-handed Inzamam and bowled him around his legs. What a breakthrough that is for England, and the end of yet another wonderful fifty from Inzy. 241/5
106.4 to Kamran Akmal, and he’s GOT HIM! More turn, outside the offstump, Akmal feathers it into Jones’ gloves who takes a neat catch. Look at his celebrations, Pietersen is throwing his arms up and roaring his delight – his first Test wicket, and it comes at rather a handy time for England. Fine knock from Akmal.. 399/7

TOTAL84.5 Ov (RR: 3.48, 343 Mins)296/8d
Fall of wickets: 1-38 (Marcus Trescothick, 9.2 ov), 2-64 (Alastair Cook, 15.1 ov), 3-141 (Kevin Pietersen, 36.1 ov), 4-146 (Paul Collingwood, 37.5 ov), 5-203 (Ian Bell, 57.3 ov), 6-250 (Geraint Jones, 74.2 ov), 7-253 (Andrew Strauss, 74.4 ov), 8-296 (Liam Plunkett, 84.5 ov)
9.2 to ME Trescothick, chopped on one which was moving away from him. That was a big inside edge which clattered straight into leg-stump and Trescothick jabs his toe into the turf wistfully. He should have fallen in Gul's last over - thankfully for Pakistan, Akmal's drop hasn't proved too costly. 38/1
15.1 to AN Cook, slightly shorter but not short enough to pull, Cook attempts to hoick it over midwicket but can only spoon it, tamely, to mid-on. Dreadful, injudicious stroke so soon after lunch and just the breakthrough Pakistan needed.. 64/2
37.5 to PD Collingwood, trying to play against the spin, a leading edge lofts to mid-off. Collingwood immediately looks up to follow the ball's trajectory, a look of horror on his face; he knows he’s a gonner - and he winces as he walks off. 146/4
74.2 to GO Jones, a huge appeal and umpire Bucknor raises the finger as Jones chases a fine edge through to a grateful Akmal. So Jones's batting misery continues.. 250/6
74.4 to AJ Strauss, huge, huge wicket. Slightly flatter, ran across Strauss and Imran Farhat takes that at first slip. Two quick wickets have enlivened Pakistan just before the close. But well batted Andrew Strauss. 253/7
84.5 to LE Plunkett, straighter and fuller, edges this behind to Akmal. 296/8
36.1 to KP Pietersen, sleek work from Akmal; no need for the replay. Pietersen’s patience gave way at last as he shimmied and shuffled down the pitch. Afridi saw him coming, and cleverly dragged it down, completely beating him with some big spin. Akmal did the rest – in quick-time. Good tandem bowling from the spinners there results in the wicket of the dangerman. 141/3

0.1 to Salman Butt, swinging into the left-hander, a little dibbly dobbler raps Butt on the pads who gets too far across, a huge and throaty appeal from Hoggard and Simon Taufel gives him. Oooh, very, very tight decision. Replays suggest it just clipped the leg stump. Brilliant start for England. 0/1
12.3 to Imran Farhat, Hoggard angles that at the lefthander who can only fend a tihick edge into Collingwood’s reliable hands at third slip. High fives and hugs all round for England - that's a massive boon for them just before lunch. 33/2
35.5 to Mohammad Yousuf, great ball, Monty has the breakthrough! The change back to the Nursery End has done the trick. Pitches on leg and it spins a touch and would have gone on to hit middle-and-off. Panesar bounces up and down, skipping like it’s the first day of spring. Or something.. 116/3
43.4 to Faisal Iqbal, gone, Monty strikes again! There was big turn off the bat as the batsman presses forward to defend and a thick outside edge flies low to Cook at second slip, who grips on with one hand. 141/4
