    4.2 castled! Curran goes straight through Pakistan's captain and talisman! Perfect length, Azam a little flat-footed as he aimed a wafty drive, and the ball hit the seam before coming back and properly jiggering his stumps! *Powerplay wicket klaxon* England have a second for the night 32/2
    1.1 bowled 'im through the gate! Moeen finds his line from round the wicket straight away, and he topples Zaman with his first ball! Nicely flighted but this didn't turn, as the batsman was expecting, simply scuttled on with the arm and into the top of middle stump. Good night! 2/1

    14.3 bowled full pint! Off stump is flattened by a fizzing yorker, and Haider's fun on debut is over! Jordan hits the target with one that tails back in at pace with Haider looking to clear the front leg... Still, he's announced himself to the world in fine style, has Haider Ali 132/3

    7.5 so full and thuds the pad! Oh my, that is excruciatingly close, and Pakistan review! It was coming in with the arm, had to be hitting on or around off stump... I reckon it'll be at least umpire's call on line... maybe even smashing off. Smashing it is! A fine review to end a fine innings. Banton can't atone for running out his captain, and now Pakistan are right in the hunt! 69/4
    0.4 snorter! Outswing, outswing, inswing ... timber! An exceptional yorker, Bairstow blinks in bafflement as he trudges off with his stumps rattled. He hardly saw that, but he heard it alright! Shaheen is gleeful, and Pakistan are in the game! 1/1
    3.5 Imad comes round the wicket, and ... that's a fine catch on the edge of the rope! It's the shorter leg-side boundary, Malan was cramped on the slog-sweep but rightly felt the shot was on, and a few more inches would have sufficed! Instead it's a well-timed leap, and another precious breakthrough! 26/2
    6.6 run out! A terrible mix-up! Morgan wanted the run, Banton turned it down late. The skipper is utterly stranded and Pakistan are cockahoop! They needed that! A slap into the covers, Babar gathered quickly and spooked the non-striker. Oops 65/3
    18.5 round the wicket, Moeen is cramped on the pull and Wahab snaffles the top-edge in his followthrough! A sharp bouncer ends a superb innings. Is it enough to keep England in the hunt though? England need to get busy off this final ball of the over! 174/8
    14.2 much quicker, and a wild swipe steeples to third man! Billings had no say over the destiny of that ball, a keen mow to hack out the full length, and a well-judged take. The needle moves once more, as Lewis Gregory enters for a big test of his mettle 126/5
    17.5 bowled him! Gregory gives himself room for an unsubtle thwack through the line, but he can't pick the legcutter. He's through the shot too soon, and back goes his middle stump. Still, a lively hand in the circumstances... 170/6
    18.1 very full length, poked to the off side, and though Jordan is quick, Wahab is every bit as rapid! A rapid gather in his followthrough, a turn and shy, and he nails the stumps with the batsman two inches short! A huge wicket. Moeen is back on strike, but Jordan can clear the ropes when he needs to... 172/7
