  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MM Ali c Coleman b Haq 128 142 107 12 5 119.62
34.3 40.1 mph, no 200 for Moeen! He has slogged this straight into the hands of the lone fielder at deep midwicket. That slow pace from Majid, it did play some part there because Moeen wasn't able to swing is bat on the cue. Had to wait an extra moment and that meant he didn't get the power behind it. Excellent innings though. 201/2
View dismissal IR Bell c Coetzer b Berrington 54 123 85 2 0 63.52
30.1 79.4 mph, he is gone, he has given it away really! Goes for the big booming drive off this fuller delivery but fails to keep it down.. Straight into the hands of Coetzer at cover. He may have thrown away the chance to improve his strike rate but this opening stand has set up the perfect platform for his team. 172/1
View dismissal GS Ballance b Evans 10 23 18 0 0 55.55
35.1 76.4 mph, And there is another wicket! Ballance's poor run continues as he chops this down on to his stumps. He wanted to run it down to third man but the lack of pace messed up his timing. Reward for Evans 203/3
View dismissal JE Root c †Cross b Davey 1 8 3 0 0 33.33
36.1 74.5 mph, and another one! Root follows the rest. This is an excellent delivery at this juncture of the innings. Pitches on a length just outside off and straightens just a touch to kiss the outside edge. Not much Root could have done about that really. Excellent stuff. 203/4
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c Mommsen b Davey 46 68 42 4 2 109.52
49.1 captain takes out the captain! Morgan looked to slog across the line but got a big top edge. Mommsen, at midwicket, had to backpedal to get under it. He keeps his eyes on the swirler and gets under it comfortably 300/7
View dismissal JWA Taylor st †Cross b Davey 17 38 26 0 0 65.38
44.5 76.7 mph, superb work by Cross behind the stumps! Taylor jumped out of the crease and probably the bowler pushed it full and wide. It's an excellent take - a half-volley just inside the wide marker - then he follows it up with some quick glovework to take the bails off. England continue to struggle for late momentum. That could have been called a wide but the umpire probably felt generous. 252/5
View dismissal JC Buttler c Davey b Wardlaw 24 19 14 4 0 171.42
48.4 72.9 mph, smashed straight into the hands of long off! He moved away to the leg side, the bowler pushes it wide outside off, which means Buttler doesn't get it off the meat of the bat. He could have gone over cover with that but chose to go straight 297/6
View dismissal CR Woakes c Mommsen b Davey 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
49.2 67.0 mph, another ball, another top edge, another catch by Mommsen! He runs to his right from extra cover towards mid-off and takes another steepler. Same finish too. Falling backwards as he completed that 300/8
