22 September 2010 - day/night match (50-over match)

Abdul Razzaq to Strauss, FOUR, lovely shot, whipped away off middle and leg and it races away through square leg for the first boundary

England 6/0   AJ Strauss 5* (5b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 0.1-0-4-0

Abdul Razzaq to Strauss, FOUR, very nicely done, punches this beautifully straight down the ground past the stumps and it races across a fast outfield

England 10/0   AJ Strauss 9* (10b 2x4)   Abdul Razzaq 1-0-8-0

Shoaib Akhtar to Davies, FOUR, great timing from Davies...flicked away off leg stump and it was to the boundary in a flash. He has looked in fine touch all series and used Shoaib's extra pace well

England 16/0   SM Davies 6* (5b 1x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 1.3-0-8-0

Abdul Razzaq to Davies, FOUR, top shot...perfect from Davies as he leans into a cover drive and threads it through the off-side field. No stopping it.

England 21/0   SM Davies 10* (9b 2x4)   Abdul Razzaq 1.3-0-13-0

Abdul Razzaq to Davies, FOUR, poor line, outside leg stump and flicked away past short fine-leg and deep square has no chance to get around...looks like there's plenty of runs on offer today

England 25/0   SM Davies 14* (11b 3x4)   Abdul Razzaq 1.5-0-17-0

Umar Gul to Bell, FOUR, crisply timed this time! Bell walked down the track to turn a full ball into a half-volley on the pads and clipped sweetly through straight midwicket. A fielder gave chase, but the ball won that race!

England 58/3   IR Bell 7* (14b 1x4)   Umar Gul 1.3-1-4-0

Umar Gul to Bell, FOUR, elegantly driven down the ground! Nothing more than a firm push straight back down the wicket, but such is the timing that a sprinting mid-on can't catch the ball, another top shot from Bell

England 64/3   IR Bell 13* (22b 2x4)   Umar Gul 2.4-1-9-0

Saeed Ajmal to Morgan, FOUR, chipped over cover, calm as you like! Great execution of the chipped drive from Morgan, picking his spot to perfection and picking up four runs for his efforts

England 74/3   EJG Morgan 7* (11b 1x4)   Saeed Ajmal 3.5-0-16-0

Mohammad Hafeez to Morgan, FOUR, nice shot from Morgan, waited for it outside off and chopped away through short third man...but Asad Shafiq makes a great save on the deep point boundary, or does he? Ah, shame, his foot was in contact with the rope at the second attempt

England 100/3   EJG Morgan 24* (31b 2x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 4.1-1-13-1

Mohammad Hafeez to Morgan, FOUR, lovely shot from Morgan, drives inside out through the covers and with placement to beat the deep fielders

England 144/4   EJG Morgan 42* (50b 3x4)   Mohammad Hafeez 8.5-1-40-1

Umar Gul to Morgan, FOUR, valiant effort by Wahab down at third man as Morgan slashes a powerful cut, but he can't stop the ball crossing the rope and that's fifty for Morgan

England 161/4   EJG Morgan 53* (58b 4x4)   Umar Gul 5.2-1-25-0

Umar Gul to Morgan, FOUR, bouncer from Gul, but this wicket doesn't have the pace in it for that sort of bowling and Morgan hooks him to long leg for four more!

England 165/4   EJG Morgan 57* (60b 5x4)   Umar Gul 5.4-1-29-0

Shahid Afridi to Morgan, FOUR, savagely pulled to square leg! That was much too short from Afridi, and Morgan almost sent the ball for six with a powerful shot. Bounced just short

England 195/4   EJG Morgan 72* (79b 6x4)   Shahid Afridi 9.1-0-36-1

Shoaib Akhtar to Morgan, FOUR, good shot Eoin Morgan! Low full toss right on leg stump - and fast - but he just stepped to leg and cracked it straight back to pick up four down the ground

England 207/6   EJG Morgan 78* (86b 7x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 8.4-0-29-3

Umar Gul to Bresnan, FOUR, and it's a good one! That has pinged right out of the middle, powerfully slapped through cover by Bresnan

England 219/6   TT Bresnan 7* (5b 1x4)   Umar Gul 9-1-47-1

Shoaib Akhtar to Bresnan, FOUR, crunched through cover! Shoiab was aiming for the yorker but missed his mark, and Bresnan was waiting to thrash the resultant half-volley through the ring of fielders on the off side

England 224/6   TT Bresnan 11* (6b 2x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 9.2-0-35-3

Saeed Ajmal to Morgan, FOUR, there's the hundred! Morgan, take a bow. He's giving England every chance of victory with a great innings, and he gets to the mark by crashing Ajmal straight down the ground

England 250/6   EJG Morgan 101* (97b 8x4 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 7.2-0-44-0
