At the halfway stage of their innings, Pakistan were just 48-4. Shoaib Malik top scored for his team with 33 runs, but just when he seemed to be settling in with 2 successive boundaries off Wright.
In reply, England were 18-3 in just the 4th over after losing Denly, Jonathan Trott and Collingwood. But Kevin Pietersen (43) and the impressive Eoin Morgan (67 runs) saw their team through with some sensible batting.
