England won by 5 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)
5 September 2010 (20-over match)

Swann to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, a touch of turn straight away, it's slightly short though and Shahzaib works easily into the leg side


Swann to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, quicker, straighter one from Swann and Shahzaib is slightly squared up as he tries to work it away


Swann to Shahzaib Hasan, 1 run, desperate swish from Shahzaib, and the ball drops safely between two fielders!


Swann to Mohammad Yousuf, no run, attempted reverse-sweep from Yousuf, but Swann held this one back and the ball gripped and turned quite sharply to beat the bat


Swann to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, gone! Yousuf falls! This time he tried to whip the ball away in the air with the turn, but succeeds only in giving Morgan an easy catch running in from the midwicket boundary. A good start from him, especially once he settled against Broad, but he's gone now

Mohammad Yousuf c Morgan b Swann 26 (21m 18b 3x4 0x6) SR: 144.44


Swann to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, Shahzaib tries to nudge this round the corner, but the ball spins in and beats the bat to strike him on the pad. No lbw shout though, that was going well down leg

Pakistan 50/2   GP Swann 1-0-1-1

Swann to Fawad Alam, 1 run, full on off stump from round the wicket, Alam pushes into the covers and they set off straight away


Swann to Shahzaib Hasan, 3 runs, cover drive, smashed just over a leaping fielder at extra cover. Bopara charges round on the ropes and cuts that off, good fielding


Swann to Fawad Alam, no run, held back a touch by Swann, this really bites into the turf and spins away from Alam's bat sharply to beat the outside edge. It's definitely spinning people!


Swann to Fawad Alam, 1 run, this time Alam stays deep in the crease and chops down behind square on the off side for one


Swann to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, Shahzaib goes, paying the price for impatience! He was looking increasingly frenetic at the crease, trying to hit everything too hard. This time he charged down the track, head in the air, and flailed at a flighted delivery from Swann. Unsurprisingly, he got nowhere near it, the ball spinning in sharply, and Davies has the bails off in a flash

Shahzaib Hasan st †Davies b Swann 21 (35m 25b 2x4 0x6) SR: 84.00


Swann to Umar Akmal, no run, that has ripped square! Pitching well wide of off, this would have spun far down the leg side had it not crashed into Umar's pad

Pakistan 56/3   GP Swann 2-0-6-2

Swann to Fawad Alam, no run, big spin again, looped up before ripping past the outside edge


Swann to Fawad Alam, no run, edged, Alam closes the face and it skews off the outside edge to short third man


Swann to Fawad Alam, 1 run, Alam has had an almighty fling at this and has lost his bat in the process. Really throwing the bat against it as it slides out of his hands


Swann to Umar Akmal, 1 run, the time the sweep is completed with the bat still firmly in hands and a single is taken to deep backwards square


Swann to Fawad Alam, no run, Alam getting very twitchy here, he pokes another to point and is desperate to get off strike but can't


Swann to Fawad Alam, no run, swing and a miss! Alam is clueless poor fellow, huge mow from outside off stump but the ball bounces and spins well past the bat

Pakistan 63/3   GP Swann 3-0-8-2

Swann to Fawad Alam, 2 runs, decent shot this time from Alam, upper-cutting to point crisply for a couple


Swann to Fawad Alam, 2 runs, this is probably his best shot yet, waiting on the ball nicely before cutting to point


Swann to Fawad Alam, no run, fuller from Swann, lovely bowling, Alam had committed to play off the back foot and could't connect because of the change of length


Swann to Fawad Alam, 1 run, full once more, chipped down the ground for a single


Swann to Umar Akmal, no run, wow, this spins a huge distance as well and Umar is completely cramped for room as he tries to cut


Swann to Umar Akmal, 1 run, slightly quicker ball to finish, deflected into the leg side for a single to end a brilliant spell from Swann

Pakistan 77/3   GP Swann 4-0-14-2
