Pakistan tour of England, 1st T20I: England v Pakistan at Cardiff, Sep 5, 2010
England won by 5 wickets (with 17 balls remaining)
5 September 2010 (20-over match)

Sidebottom to Shahzaib Hasan, FOUR, classically square-driven by Shahzaib! Just a checked drive with a high left elbow and the ball races away through cover point

Pakistan 7/0   Shahzaib Hasan 4* (1b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 0.2-0-7-0

Bresnan to Mohammad Yousuf, FOUR, shot! Great innovation from Yousuf, he walked across to the off side but didn't go too far and, importantly, kept his eye on the ball to paddle-pull it past the man at short fine leg. First one he's hit out the middle

Pakistan 29/1   Mohammad Yousuf 13* (9b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 1.4-0-11-1

Broad to Mohammad Yousuf, FOUR, another good shot from Yousuf, and this one wouldn't have been out of place in a Test match! It was a cutter from Broad, but he slipped in to Yousuf's pads and was eased away past a diving Ryan Sidebottom at short fine leg

Pakistan 34/1   Mohammad Yousuf 18* (12b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1.2-0-10-0

Broad to Mohammad Yousuf, FOUR, he didn't know all that much about that one! A short, fast bouncer from Broad that rushes on to Yousuf. He tried to uppercut it but it just followed him, taking a thick top edge to evade a leaping Davies behind the stumps. Broad has a word, Yousuf has a word back

Pakistan 38/1   Mohammad Yousuf 22* (13b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 1.3-0-14-0

Bresnan to Shahzaib Hasan, FOUR, this time he was expecting the short ball, and hammers a pull away to long leg! First boundary for Shahzaib

Pakistan 48/1   Shahzaib Hasan 16* (15b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 2.5-0-17-1

Collingwood to Umar Akmal, FOUR, runs, and four of them! Not a great delivery it must be said, very short and wide and Umar crashes a cut to the third man boundary

Pakistan 67/3   Umar Akmal 5* (3b 1x4)   PD Collingwood 0.1-0-4-0

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   Shahid Afridi 7* (3b 1x4)   MH Yardy 4-0-21-1

Sidebottom to Umar Akmal, FOUR, shot! More conventional from Umar and it's paid dividends, skipping down the wicket and flicking to deep midwicket for a boundary, only the eighth of the innings

Pakistan 116/4   Umar Akmal 28* (25b 2x4)   RJ Sidebottom 3.5-0-30-0
