England won by 5 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)
5 September 2010 (20-over match)
7.1

Yardy to Fawad Alam, no run, full and speared in on off stump, Alam looks to push the ball into space on the off side but can't get it away

7.2

Yardy to Fawad Alam, no run, beaten outside off! Alam was expecting turn where there was none as he tried to glance to third man

7.3

Yardy to Fawad Alam, 1 run, now there is some turn! Big turn in to the left-hander as Alam tries to make room. If Yardy's turning them there must be something in this pitch for the spinners!

7.4

Yardy to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, much quicker and a touch shorter as well, Shahzaib is beaten on the pull and wears this one in the midriff

7.5

Yardy to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, quick again, a touch fuller this time and again Shahzaib can't do anything with it

7.6

Yardy to Shahzaib Hasan, no run, that's very quick indeed! A medium-pace delivery, really fired in from round the wicket and Shahzaib still can't get him away

Pakistan 51/2   MH Yardy 1-0-1-0
9.1

Yardy to Fawad Alam, no run, speared in, this one doesn't turn but Alam isn't yet looking settled at the crease and doesn't really know where to hit this

9.2

Yardy to Fawad Alam, 2 runs, slapped out to deep cover point for a couple

9.3

Yardy to Fawad Alam, no run, full on middle stump, nothing to be done with it though, another dot ball

9.4

Yardy to Fawad Alam, 2 runs, much quicker through the air! But Yardy's also pulled this down a bit too short, and Alam slashes it away behind square on the off side for two more

9.5

Yardy to Fawad Alam, no run, appeal for lbw as Alam bends into an optimistic slog sweep and is struck on the body! Replays suggest it would have hit the top of middle, but struck him perhaps just outside off

9.6

Yardy to Fawad Alam, 1 run, chopped away for one

Pakistan 61/3   MH Yardy 2-0-6-0
13.1

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 2 runs, slung in quickly towards the legs, turned round the corner neatly by Umar

13.2

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, much slower from Yardy, left Umar waiting and waiting on the back foot and he can't work it away

13.3

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, slightly shorter and Umar can't get enough room to cut

13.4

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 2 runs, top shot and top fielding too, Umar got down on one knee early and flicked it over his head towards fine leg where Stuart Broad ran around, dived full length and pulled off an excellent save

13.5

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 2 runs, this time Umar gets to cut, he's always looking for the shot, and connects well enough to find deep cover

13.6

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 1 run, quicker from Yardy to finish, it's on to Umar in a flash and he dabs towards square leg for a strike-stealing single

Pakistan 84/3   MH Yardy 3-0-13-0
15.1

Yardy to Fawad Alam, OUT, finally the torture is over, it's been a truly awful innings and England may be disappointed to see him go, shortish ball that he ends up chipping back off the leading edge to gift Yardy a wicket. Big roar from the crowd it's BoomBoom time!

Fawad Alam c & b Yardy 20 (29m 29b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.96

15.2

Yardy to Shahid Afridi, 1 run, no bluster from Afridi here, just stands tall and very correctly punches a cover drive through the off side

15.3

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, is this Bishan Bedi!? Yardy has ripped this off a length beating Umar's outside edge

15.4

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 1 run, quicker ball this time that Umar deflects into the leg side for a single

15.5

Yardy to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs, Afridi stands very still and clumps this towards the deep midwicket boundary for a couple

15.6

Yardy to Shahid Afridi, FOUR, shot! Afridi jumps down the leg side to give him room and aims an expansive back-foot cover drive, really launching his arms at the ball but he times it well and the placement is excellent, beating the boundary riders

Pakistan 96/4   MH Yardy 4-0-21-1
