Pakistan tour of England, 2nd T20I: England v Pakistan at Cardiff, Sep 7, 2010
England won by 6 wickets (with 36 balls remaining)
7 September 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Bresnan to Kamran Akmal, OUT, top-edged pull, a steepling chance to mid-on and Kamran falls! Deja vu from his dismissal in the first game, the ball, the shot and the result are all the same!

Kamran Akmal c Swann b Bresnan 11 (6m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

Pakistan 11/1   Shahzaib Hasan 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 0.4-0-0-1

Bresnan to Mohammad Yousuf, OUT, bouncer from Bresnan, and it's pulled ... but straight to Bopara at deep square leg! Again he picked up the length early, deliberately pulled the ball in the air but just couldn't get the connection he was hoping for. Pakistan wobble...

Mohammad Yousuf c Bopara b Bresnan 4 (4m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Pakistan 18/2   Shahzaib Hasan 3* (4b)   TT Bresnan 1.2-0-4-2

Broad to Shahzaib Hasan, OUT, another bouncer from Broad, and this time he's got the wicket! Shahzaib tried to get across to the off side and hook to fine leg, but the ball was simply too quick for him, kissing the glove on the way through to the keeper

Shahzaib Hasan c †Davies b Broad 3 (19m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Pakistan 20/3   Umar Akmal 2* (2b)   SCJ Broad 1.2-0-4-1

Broad to Shahid Afridi, OUT, another one goes, and this is a big blow for Pakistan! Back of a length from Broad, and the ball is met with a wild, baseball-style swipe from Afridi. It's unclear where he was trying to hit that, but the ball takes a thick top edge and goes straight up. Morgan gets easily underneath it and he's not going to drop that! Pakistan in real trouble now

Shahid Afridi c Morgan b Broad 2 (1m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Pakistan 22/4   Umar Akmal 2* (2b)   SCJ Broad 2-0-6-2

Swann to Umar Akmal, OUT, great stuff from Swann, what a response! Cool as you like. Having watched the last disappear over his head Swann throws this up much slower, a touch wider, Umar runs at it and hacks wildly, only for the ball to spin back and crash into the stumps, Swann smiles wryly, knowing he's out-thought the youngster

Umar Akmal b Swann 17 (25m 13b 0x4 2x6) SR: 130.76

Pakistan 44/5   Mohammad Hafeez 7* (22b)   GP Swann 1.3-0-15-1

Swann to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, another gone, run out by a distance here, Hafeez looked for a reverse-sweep, failed to connect and it came off his body towards Sidebottom at short fine leg, Razzaq called him through for a single but Hafeez took an age to reach the bowler's end and Sidebottom's throw came in quick enough to Swann to do the rest

Mohammad Hafeez run out 14 (30m 32b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

Pakistan 55/6   Abdul Razzaq 4* (12b)   GP Swann 3.1-0-19-1

Swann to Fawad Alam, OUT, Swann may thank Broad after all! Alam gone first ball trying to cut off the back foot, touch of spin, gets a faint outside edge and Davies clings on. Absolute procession here

Fawad Alam c †Davies b Swann 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 56/7   Abdul Razzaq 5* (13b)   GP Swann 3.3-0-20-2

Sidebottom to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, another falls, slower ball from Sidebottom who manages a smile now, Razzaq tried to slug this over deep midwicket but could only find a top edge that looped towards slip

Abdul Razzaq c Yardy b Sidebottom 11 (31m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.00

Pakistan 85/8   Umar Gul 16* (12b 1x4 1x6)   RJ Sidebottom 2.4-0-22-1

Sidebottom to Umar Gul, OUT, Two in two! Another wicket for Sidebottom, who's smile is even broader now. Slower-ball bouncer once more, Gul tried to pull it away but could only manage a top edge that looped towards deep square where Bopara ran in and slid on his knees to pouch the catch

Umar Gul c Bopara b Sidebottom 16 (18m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 123.07

Pakistan 85/9   Shoaib Akhtar 0* (0b)   RJ Sidebottom 2.5-0-22-2

Bresnan to Shoaib Akhtar, OUT, that is that. All over. Abject effort from Pakistan ends with Shoaib backing away and missing a full toss that crashes into middle stump. England will need 90 to win

Shoaib Akhtar b Bresnan 4 (2m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 89/10   Saeed Ajmal 0* (1b)   TT Bresnan 3.4-0-10-3
