12.2 LE Plunkett to Sarfraz Ahmed, 4 runs, nothing half-committed about that one! Picked the length early, pivoted gloriously into the stroke, and dumped it over midwicket for one bounce | Aug 30, 2016
9.6 CR Woakes to Sharjeel Khan, out, belted out to deep midwicket, and if Hales is the shoddiest pair of hands on the England team, then Ben Stokes is Mr Bucket Hands. Straight into his mitts, and a bold innings comes to a fittingly belligerent end | Aug 30, 2016
9.5 CR Woakes to Sharjeel Khan, 6 runs, belted! Just an inch short of a good length, and pounded over the leg side! Give him an inch and he'll take a mile. Exclusively through the leg side, of course. But it is giving England plenty to ponder | Aug 30, 2016
9.2 CR Woakes to Sharjeel Khan, 4 runs, outside off, Sharjeel slaps another four through the covers, and that is a 26-ball fifty, with 12 fours! Forty-eight in fours ... | Aug 30, 2016
9.1 CR Woakes to Sharjeel Khan, 4 runs, that's his shot! On the pads, paddled round the corner and timed to perfection past backward square | Aug 30, 2016
8.6 MA Wood to Sharjeel Khan, 1 run, flipped off the hip ... straight to Hales at backward square ... who drops it! That was an absolute goober! A bit of a top edge from Sharjeel, the trap had been set and down it goes. Just as well he's got runs to fall back on, as Hales' fielding has been a liability of late ... | Aug 30, 2016
8.4 MA Wood to Sharjeel Khan, 4 runs, flipped off the hip yet again, it's like watching Brian Lara! Up comes the front leg as he pivots on the back, and Wood is getting a pasting! | Aug 30, 2016
8.3 MA Wood to Sharjeel Khan, 4 runs, fuller length, outside off, and deposited handsomely over long-on for a one-bounce four! He saw it coming, and sent it flying! | Aug 30, 2016
8.2 MA Wood to Sharjeel Khan, 4 runs, on the pads once again and another flipped four off the hip! He is smoking the pace of this pitch, and Wood's pace for that matter, he's consistently in the 90s | Aug 30, 2016
