Mohammad Sami26113525.1910119006
15.6 to ME Trescothick, gone, Sami held on to the return catch at the second time. Trescothick drives on the up, straight back to the bowler and the ball cannons into his chest but he held the rebound. That’s the breakthrough Pakistan needed and Sami flings the ball in the air with aggressive delight - as well he might. 67/1
60.6 to KP Pietersen, straight down the ground and straight into the hands of long-off. Pietersen had been getting a bit carried away in that over and finally sends that one high for an easy catch. He just didn't get hold of that one at all, and pays the price.. 259/4
104.4 to KP Pietersen, straight down the ground and straight into the hands of long-off. Pietersen had been getting a bit carried away in that over and finally sends that one high for an easy catch. He just didn't get hold of that one at all, and pays the price.. 421/7
Umar Gul29412354.2412018102
26.1 to AN Cook, gone. A leading edge, trying to work that to square, and Gul takes an easy return catch. A soft dismissal but a jubilant Pakistan deserved that; they have got their man at last. High tens all round.... and that's lunch. 110/3
48.2 to PD Collingwood, slightly quicker bouncer this time, clever bowling and Collingwood fell into the trap. He tried to go aerial with a big hook shot but failed to get hold of it and it flew off the bottom third of his bat and over to the leg-side boundary for a soft, if high, catch. 192/4
87.1 to CMW Read, gone, nipped back on him and he stands on the crease, trapped. That would have hit middle-and-off and the batsman can have no complaints about that one.. 345/5
89.4 to MJ Hoggard, cleaned him up with one which pitched full and off stump and the impressive Gul claims a fourth wicket. Hoggard tries to play a forward defence, it took his off stump… and that’s stumps. 347/6
122.6 to SI Mahmood, at last, a yorker, and Mahmood plays all around it. A fine bit of bowling, knocking over Mahmood’s off stump and Gul raises his arms in relief and delight at picking up five wickets. 515/10
Shahid Nazir28710113.6013112203
16.4 to AJ Strauss, a great catch, taken low at second slip, and Pakistan have another breakthrough with the two openers falling in quick succession. Great seam position from Nazir, a pearler and it's all Strauss can do to get the edge on it. 67/2
Danish Kaneria34411123.2614610300
111.6 to IR Bell, the ball spun in from leg, and Bell hopped backwards, looking to work that one away to the offside but was totally cleaned up by one which stayed low. Kaneria has a wicket at last and he looked to the heavens with relief. 445/8
119.4 to SJ Harmison, outside his leg stump, Harmison takes a huge lunge forward to sweep but can only balloon the ball to short fine-leg to end a really useful and entertaining 36 from Harmison. Another wicket for Kaneria whose luck is finally turning (as are his legbreaks). 501/9

Matthew Hoggard2949313.201338036
12.6 to Taufeeq Umar, well well. A straight one from Hoggard inviting the drive and the batsman stretches out to it. The huge edge is snapped up by Read, diving away to his left.. 34/1
Steve Harmison30114214.7311619120
98.3 to Mohammad Yousuf, GONE! Short, straighter this time and Yousuf fended it off and just got a glove to it. What a brilliant innings from a quite remarkable batsman who receives a standing ovation by all and sundry. Out goes one colossus and in comes the man-mountain and run-machine himself, Inzamam-ul-Haq. 399/3
Sajid Mahmood24410824.509616000
124.4 to Kamran Akmal, well bowled Sajid Mahmood, keeping it in the corridor of uncertainty. It bounces on Akmal who flashes at it – a poor stroke – handing Trescothick the simplest of catches at first slip. Finally, Mahmood has a wicket.. 481/7
130.4 to Umar Gul, what a catch off a hook which wasn't quite timed properly and sailed high. Great take from Panesar at long leg, tumbling forward and he held it low. That should temporarily silence the critics of Panesar's fielding; he watched that right into his hands, although it must be said he looked mighty relieved when he held it. 496/9
Monty Panesar47.41312732.6622215100
113.5 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, fell on to his stumps trying to sweep Panesar. We oughtn’t to laugh but the way Inzamam dived over the stumps and nearly managed to hurdle them was quite comical: his belly took off the stumps as he caved right into them. The crowd immediately began to chant "You fell over! You fell over!" Tell you what, they're right. 451/6
127.2 to Mohammad Sami, swings lustfully to one just on his leg stump, but he top-edges it to Harmison at fine-leg who took two or three steps back towards the boundary and gobbled the catch in front of his nose. Well deserved, Monty.. 489/8
141.4 to Danish Kaneria, drifted in, turned a touch, beat him in the flight. Kaneria, trying to work that one to leg, got a leading edge and Trescothick takes a sharp chance at first slip, leaning across with his right hand to snatch it bringing the fun to an end. "I should have dropped that!" Trescothick jokes (assuming our resident lipreaders have done their job properly) as England jog off ... because of course he and Strauss will now have to face the odd over at the end of the day, which could prove quite awkward.. 538/10
Kevin Pietersen1014014.0011100
Paul Collingwood1013313.30476000
112.3 to Faisal Iqbal, England have two in two balls, now, as Collingwood traps Iqbal bang in front. It’s absolutely plumb and that’s Collingwood’s first Test wicket. Iqbal’s bat got trapped in his back pad there, a touch unfortunate for him, but well bowled Collingwood. 447/5

Mohammad Sami21.3410034.659415007
58.3 to AJ Strauss, a huge wicket before tea. Sami banged that one in and that was a hesitant shot from Strauss who was trying to leave it but the ball just grazed the toe end of the bat. 237/4
60.2 to IR Bell, Bell is gone too! And it's a great catch from the beleaguered Akmal as well, as he dives low to his left to scoop up an inside-edge – his 100th dismissal in Tests in fact. Bell walks, to his credit, and England are in some disarray as Chris Read comes to the crease. Now then, now then ... here's a pressure situation to test his new batting skills .... 248/5
88.3 to CMW Read, inside edge slashed hard and cannons into the sticks, rattling middle stump. Sad way for a great innings to end, but now this makes things really interesting. 345/10
Umar Gul2017623.80888019
38.4 to ME Trescothick, great catch! Superb, soft-handed take by Salman Butt at second slip as Trescothick, eyeing a juicy short-and-wide gimme for four, cuts it but gets a bottom edge to Butt who takes it low in front of his right foot. Well taken indeed. 158/1
83.4 to SJ Harmison, clever captaincy from Khan, there. Mid-off had come up for that one and the move paid off as Harmison sent a tame catch there off a ball which was well pitched up. 332/9
Shahid Nazir1443232.28683001
72.2 to PD Collingwood, GONE! He’s dragged it on and Pakistan are jubilant. It was a nothing delivery really, hence Pakistan’s delight, outside the off stump and short. But it didn’t rise as much as Collingwood hoped and, off the back foot, he edged it into his stumps. 299/6
72.5 to SI Mahmood, soft dismissal. A casual shot from Mahmood, didn’t move his feet as he tried to cut and a big bottom edge flies low to Akmal who pouches that at his right knee. Mahmood didn't give himself time to play himself in, there and that's the second wicket in the over for Nazir. Interesting.... 301/7
80.5 to MJ Hoggard, the ball pops up on Hoggard and he can only fend with the open face to second slipThe new ball has done the job - and Nazir strikes again. 323/8
Danish Kaneria33212623.8114117202
47.5 to AN Cook, gottim! Cook pushes forward at one which spins into him and a big inside edge flies to Faisal Iqbal at short leg, who stays down there to take a sharp chance. Kaneria deserved that wicket; he had been probing away for a while. 190/2
51.4 to KP Pietersen, a beauty. Googly, a quicker delivery, goes through the gate and Pietersen just doesn’t pick that. His off-stump is gone. Corker. Kaneria is so pleased with himself he runs around doing a chicken dance. 214/3

Matthew Hoggard732613.71364002
9.1 to Salman Butt, GOT’IM! The perfect length enticing the drive outside off stump and Butt’s rather crooked and flashing drive edges the ball to Marcus Trescothick at first slip. 23/1
Monty Panesar17.543932.18885000
17.4 to Taufeeq Umar, the ball pitches just outside off, turns and the batsman bottom edges that one on to his pad where it flies up to Cook short in on the off-side. Panesar deserved that wicket, and he bounds up and down in delight (some may call it a skip): he’d had the batsman in all kinds of bother. 52/2
35.2 to Younis Khan, HE’S BOWLED HIM! It’s a crackerjack rip-snorting jaffa from the Montster! Lands it on middle-and-leg, Younis comes forward, misses, and it turns to hit the top of his off stump, just removing the bail. A remarkable ball, turning out of the rough. 112/6
47.5 to Inzamam-ul-Haq, and that’s it, England have won the series with that wicket. That was a sharp stumping by Read to dismiss Inzamam, who was out by some distance, there. Inzamam came charging down the pitch in a final act of defiance.. 155/10
Steve Harmison1536204.13688011
Sajid Mahmood822242.75383000
24.4 to Faisal Iqbal, full ball down the leg side, hit with nearly the full face of the bat and Read pouches the ball, diving low to his left. A sharp take indeed and England will be licking their lips. Pakistan have some rebuilding work to be doing here now. 80/4
24.6 to Kamran Akmal, pearler of a delivery, pitches on a good length, rises, and Akmal can only edge that one through to Read as he’s squared up a treat. That’s an easier catch for Read this time, but he still hangs on to it. Pakistan are in tatters here and it’s no wonder Akmal trudges off so slowly.. 80/5
44.1 to Shahid Nazir, short and on middle stump, rising on Nazir who mistimes a pull, top-edging it miles in the air to Trescothick at slip. Typical tail-end shot. 148/8
44.6 to Umar Gul, gone! Well, that didn’t take long. Gul prods forward and a huge edge just below the handle flies to Collingwood at third slip who snaffles a sharp chance. This game is England's for the taking. 149/9
