Fall of wickets - England 1 INN
       Shahid Afridi to Hales       32/1

Shahid Afridi to Hales,OUT,strikes first ball! Boom Boom is at the party. Hales trying to flick a shortish delivery through the leg side, the ball skidding on straight and takes Hales around the knee roll

       Shahid Afridi to Roy       47/2

Shahid Afridi to Roy,OUT,he's held it with a juggle! Two, maybe three grabs for Sarfraz. Roy went for a slog sweep, thin bottom edge I think, Sarfraz couldn't glove it cleanly, the ball bounced between his gloves, pads, a bit of leg perhaps as well before he does very well to grab it inches above the ground

       Shoaib Malik to Root       74/3

Shoaib Malik to Root,OUT,finds midwicket this time! He looked to have connected well again - another slog sweep, although the ball was a touch wider on off stump - but Afridi times his leap to perfection to pluck it out of the air. Afridi everywhere tonight

       Shahid Afridi to Vince       109/4

Shahid Afridi to Vince,OUT,third for Afridi! Big blow, too. Vince goes for the sweep, gets a meaty top edge which settles comfortably into the hands of deep backward square leg

       Wahab Riaz to Billings       136/5

Wahab Riaz to Billings,OUT,wonderful catch! Super stuff from Umar Akmal at long's one of the boundary parries we see fairly often these days. Billings dragged the delivery from outside off down the ground. Akmal takes the catch very close to the rope, his momentum makes it hard to balance, he knows he's about to topple over the boundary but manages to flick it up, then steps over the boundary and is able to return to the field of play to hold the catch a second time. Great effort.

       Sohail Tanvir to Buttler       150/6

Sohail Tanvir to Buttler,OUT,he strikes back! Buttler halted in his tracks as he tries another of those reverse scoops to third man. It was a slower ball and he just got a very thin graze through to the keeper. Muted celebration from Tanvir

       Anwar Ali to Plunkett       151/7

Anwar Ali to Plunkett,OUT,edged and gone! Pakistan hitting back. Full outside off, it was there for the shot but Plunkett just got a thick outside edge to Sarfraz

       Anwar Ali to Willey       154/8

Anwar Ali to Willey,OUT,caught this time! Picks out deep square leg. Short ball, clever bowling, Willey connected cleanly but placed it perfectly to the man

Fall of wickets - Pakistan 1 INN
       Parry to Ahmed Shehzad       51/1

Parry to Ahmed Shehzad,OUT,lovely bowling! Terrific flight, dropped the length a bit shorter, then it turned beautifully past the outside edge of the advancing Shehzad which gives Buttler a comfortable stumping

       Rashid to Rafatullah Mohmand       60/2

Rashid to Rafatullah Mohmand,OUT,another stumping! The pressure tells. He comes out of his crease and then drives over the top of a full delivery. Neat take and swift work from Buttler

       Plunkett to Mohammad Hafeez       90/3

Plunkett to Mohammad Hafeez,OUT,gone now! Plunkett goes fuller, Hafeez aims to work it into the leg side, it was on the pads, but he gets a leading edge which loops gently to mid-off. The change has worked

       Rashid to Sohaib Maqsood       93/4

Rashid to Sohaib Maqsood,OUT,lovely from Rashid! Super bowling. He gave this a lot more air, very full, it was another googly and Maqsood plays all over the top of it...not a very clever innings

       Plunkett to Umar Akmal       107/5

Plunkett to Umar Akmal,OUT,what a catch! Brilliant from Buttler down the leg side, but did it come off the pad? Akmal isn't happy at all. Regardless, though, the take was outstanding as Buttler dive full-length to his left to take it one-handed. First replay seems to show it was just pad. No reviews in the T20s.

       Plunkett to Shoaib Malik       120/6

Plunkett to Shoaib Malik,OUT,finds deep midwicket! England closing in on the series. A shorter delivery, Malik went for the pull, it came from high off the bat - near the splice - and it's a simple catch for Billings

       Woakes to Shahid Afridi       148/7

Woakes to Shahid Afridi,OUT,and now he's got him! What an over. Full outside off, another mighty swing from Afridi, slices off the thick outside edge and is held at short third man

       Woakes to Sarfraz Ahmed       162/8

Woakes to Sarfraz Ahmed,OUT,first strike to Woakes! Sarfraz trying his favourite sweep, it was full outside off, he's right across the crease and basically hits it straight into his stumps.
