  England innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JJ Roy b Mohammad Irfan 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 bowled him, straight through the defences! Irfan strikes second ball, sending Roy back to the hutch... Played with a slightly crooked bat, looking to force a length ball towards mid-on, there was a touch of seam movement back in and it burst the stumps after flicking the front pad 0/1
View dismissal AD Hales c Younis Khan b Anwar Ali 10 19 7 1 0 142.85
3.1 79.8 mph, swishes outside off, nicked and taken at slip! Younis juggles the chance but holds on, to then be mobbed by his team-mates. The old magic hasn't quite faded and England are three down for spit 14/3
View dismissal JE Root lbw b Anwar Ali 0 8 7 0 0 0.00
1.5 77.6 mph, rapped on the pads, the ball nipping back past inside edge... and given! Root decides to review after a brief word with Hales but this looked pretty adjacent, he was stuck on the crease and hit around the knee roll, looked like it would have juddered leg stump. Here comes Hawk-Eye... Yes, hitting the top of leg on umpire's call and Root heads off for a seven-ball duck having wasted England's one review 7/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan* c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Shoaib Malik 76 122 96 11 0 79.16
30.3 54.5 mph, a wicket this time! Full length, a firm drive, a hint of spin, a thin edge, an easy take. A fine innings comes to an end 147/4
View dismissal JWA Taylor c Azhar Ali b Shoaib Malik 60 131 82 3 2 73.17
34.1 54.1 mph, skips out and chips the ball to midwicket! Taylor is gone now, England getting back to basics with a collapse against spin... He was playing with the turn, didn't get to the pitch and it looped in front of Azhar, who threw himself forward low to his left and held on smartly 157/6
View dismissal JC Buttler run out (Azhar Ali/†Sarfraz Ahmed) 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
30.6 Shoaib Malik to Taylor, round the wicket, tip and run, it's a suicide single to midwicket and even without a direct hit, there's plenty time for the keeper to whip off the bails! Dreadful cock-up in the calling and Buttler's desperate tour takes another nosedive 148/5
View dismissal MM Ali c Babar Azam b Yasir Shah 7 17 12 0 0 58.33
35.4 46.3 mph, plucked out of thin air, Moeen is gone! Brilliant from Babar Azam, leaping to his left with Velcro (TM) fingers and holding a screamer one-handed! Moeen rocked back to pull a short delivery, hit it out of the screws but somehow it has brought Yasir his first wicket 161/7
View dismissal CR Woakes run out (†Sarfraz Ahmed) 33 72 49 1 0 67.34
49.4 Wahab Riaz to Topley, Topley misses again, they run to the keeper... and Sarfraz's direct hit removes Woakes! Superbly done, underarming the ball straight back where it came from and leaving Woakes short of his ground by a frame. So England are dismissed for 216 with two balls left unbowled 216/10
View dismissal AU Rashid c sub (Zafar Gohar) b Mohammad Irfan 7 18 13 0 0 53.84
40.3 full on the stumps, Rashid brings out his helicopter shot... and plinks it straight to mid-on! More like Budgie the Little Helicopter, that, whipped wristily back down the ground, a la MS Dhoni but without quite the same effect 180/8
View dismissal DJ Willey b Mohammad Irfan 13 39 24 0 0 54.16
48.3 84.7 mph, he swings, he misses... Irfan hits! Off stump rattled and England lose their ninth wicket after a steady Eddy 33-run stand. Third wicket for Irfan 213/9
RJW Topley not out 0 5 4 0 0 0.00

View dismissal Azhar Ali* lbw b Topley 8 10 10 2 0 80.00
1.5 81.2 mph, bending back in, very full, very straight, and that is plumb! Remarkable scenes. Three wides, an edge, an inside-edge, and now a wicket! 12/1
View dismissal Bilal Asif lbw b Topley 2 19 7 0 0 28.57
3.2 79.7 mph, massive appeal as Topley straightens another one into the pads! And England will review. Looks mighty straight, but it was a big stride, might be a height issue? Nope, he's a goner! 15/2

View dismissal Younis Khan c Rashid b Topley 9 28 18 2 0 50.00
9.5 81.8 mph, pulled, straight to mid-on, and Younis Khan's ODI career is over! Adil Rashid completes a low catch with a tumble and England have an opening 41/3
View dismissal Shoaib Malik c Roy b Ali 26 54 35 3 0 74.28
24.2 48.6 mph, drops back and flips into the leg side... taken! Silence around the ground as Malik begins to wander off, realising he has tossed away his wicket there. Might have just stopped in the surface a touch, hit it in the air and Roy walked in to accept the gift 111/4
