Harry Brook at deep square leg takes it nicely.

Ben Stokes to Babar Azam, OUT! TAKEN! The finger is raised! Pin-drop silence in this stadium as Babar Azam has been dismissed by the England skiper, Ben Stokes. The short ball ploy works yet again. England well and truly on top now! This is short and on middle, Babar Azam looks to guide it down to third man. There is not enough room to do that. He actually tried making a little bit of room by moving to his the right. This goes off the toe-end and it is taken inches above the ground by the keeper. Two out of the three centurions from the first innings for Pakistan are back in the hut. Do Pakistan have another hero in them?
Ben Stokes to Saud Shakeel, FOUR! Flayed away! Slightly shorter and outside off, Saud cuts it past point for a boundary. He played a similar shot to the one he got out in the first innings but this time the length was shorter and hence, he was able to get it away.

First, it looked like it came off the pads but Imam-ul-Haq showed his back immediately and started walking off. He goes for fine 48.

James Anderson to Mohammad Rizwan, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Anderson gets another one! This guy is an absolute legend, irrespective on the conditions, just manages to find the breakthroughs for his side. It is the big wicket of Mohammad Rizwan who just did not look like getting out. He falls four short of a half ton and England now back on top. This is on a length, it lands and moves away. Rizwan has a poke at it away from the body. He also plays it with an angled bat. It goes off the outside edge and it goes into the hands of the keeper. He maybe could have left that delivery but that is how Rizwan plays, he likes feeling bat on ball and that proves to be his downfall.
Ben Stokes to Saud Shakeel, FOUR! Cut away! Short and outside off, Saud Shakeel slams it through point. A welcome boundary for Pakistan and Shakeel who was bogged down a bit.

Ollie Robinson to Saud Shakeel, OUT! TAKEN! That is a lovely catch! Ollie Robinson comes on and strikes. Stokes can do no wrong with his bowling changes here and England now on top. They are just the one wicket away from entering the bowlers now. Saud Shakeel who looked solid out there falls. England are delighted. This is fuller and outside off, quite wide outside off. Shakeel could have left it but it is the length that makes him play the stroke. It is just behind a driving length. Shakeel stretches for it, it goes uppishly and to the right of a very short cover. Keaton Jennings, the sub, dives to his right and takes it brilliantly. England now 5 wickets away.

Ollie Robinson to Agha Salman, OUT! LBW! A huge appeal for LBW but nothing from the umpire. ENGLAND REVIEW IT. Desperate times for England. This is the stand they want to break. Pad first clearly. THREE REDS! Agha Salman is out. The 61-run stand is broken and England now are into the bowlers. A big moment in the game. This one is on a length and outside off, it lands and nips back in sharply. Salman stays back and tries to dab to third man with an angled bat but puts his front foot across. The ball pings the pad first. UltraEdge confirms it is pad first. Three reds are shown and England are absolute delight.
Ollie Robinson to Azhar Ali, OUT! TAKEN! Straight to the leg slip fielder! Ollie Robinson is on fire, he has two in two overs and England can sense a win now. The last recognized batter, Azhar Ali is out of here and England are just the three wickets away. This is on the pads, Ali flicks but to the man at leg slip. Root takes an excellent low catch. Yet again the reverse swing doing the job, the ploy not to take the second new ball is working. This is going to be really tough for the bowling all-rounders now.
James Anderson to Zahid Mahmood, OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Absolutely brilliant from Pope! James Anderson continues to serves it short, this is on leg. Mahmood tickles it, it goes more off the gloves and to the eft of the keeper. Ollie Pope puts in a full-length dive, stretches his left hand out and takes a stunner. He does well to keep hold onto it as he lands on the ground. Just superb. James Anderson gets his third wicket. England need two wickets now.
James Anderson to Haris Rauf, OUT! LBW! An appeal for LBW and up goes the finger. Haris Rauf will take it upstairs. No bat there. Is it just sliding down though? Umpire's call it is. England won't mind it. They are nearing to the victory. James Anderson is showing his class all over again. What a champion of a bowler. He serves it on a length and tailing on leg. Rauf misses his flick. It looked like it will go down but the on-field decision is with England and it is enough for them to take the 9th wicket.
Ben Stokes to Naseem Shah, FOUR! IT GOES THROUGH! A BIG CHANCE! Short in length and outside off. Shah pokes, gets an outside edge. The ball flies in-between the keeper and first slip. Both Ollie Pope and Joe Root leave for each other and eventually, it goes through to the third man fence. Ben Stokes is not happy.
Jack Leach to Naseem Shah, OUT! SHAH HAS BEEN GIVEN LBW! He reviews it! That looked very close. Will come down to the umpire's call we think so. NO BAT INVOLVED! IT IS THREE REDS! WOW! England have done it. The stubborn final wicket is scalped. This is full and on middle, an arm ball. Shah gets on the front foot as he looks to defend but gets beaten on the inside edge and hits on the pads. An appeal for LBW and up goes the finger. Naseem Shah reviews but to no avail as three reds it shows. ENGLAND WIN BY 74 RUNS.
