Pakistan in England T20I Match

England v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 5 wickets (with 13 balls remaining)

4.6

Shoaib Akhtar to Bell, OUT, grabbed at first slip at the second attempt. Bell stands his ground - oh no, not more controversy! - and the umpires have a chat before making a decision... which is to radio for the third umpire who doesn't hesitate in calling that out. That's an excellent catch, with a low dive to his right. Bell was looking to late cut that past the vacant second slip area but Khan was superb in hanging on to that one.

IR Bell c Younis Khan b Shoaib Akhtar 14 (21m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 82.35

England 39/1   ME Trescothick 24* (13b 5x4)   Shoaib Akhtar 3-0-22-1

5.2

Mohammad Asif to Pietersen, OUT, cleaned up first ball. Great, great ball from Asif at 85mph; perfect pitch, nipping back and taking middle stump as Pietersen swishes a would-be cover-drive and that wicket brings up huge cheers from the large Pakistan contingent. Beauty

KP Pietersen b Mohammad Asif 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 40/2   ME Trescothick 24* (14b 5x4)   Mohammad Asif 2.2-0-16-1

5.4

Mohammad Asif to Strauss, OUT, edged and gone! That's three wickets in five balls for Pakistan whose tails are more than up. That ball was another offcutter going across Strauss who chased it, before edging through to Akmal for a fine catch, low to his left.

AJ Strauss c †Kamran Akmal b Mohammad Asif 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 40/3   ME Trescothick 24* (14b 5x4)   Mohammad Asif 2.4-0-16-2

8.1

Naved-ul-Hasan to Collingwood, OUT, gone, a soft dismissal, trying to run that down to third man. A decent delivery but that's a simple edge through to Akmal. Pakistan's bowlers are really running riot here, turning the screw on England

PD Collingwood c †Kamran Akmal b Naved-ul-Hasan 2 (10m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

England 50/4   ME Trescothick 30* (19b 6x4)   Naved-ul-Hasan 1.1-0-4-1

14.2

Abdul Razzaq to Trescothick, OUT, gone this time and that was an excellent delivery, moving a touch away from the lefthander who sent a little nibble through to Akmal. That's an important wicket and England will now need to rebuild

ME Trescothick c †Kamran Akmal b Abdul Razzaq 53 (56m 36b 9x4 0x6) SR: 147.22

England 97/5   JWM Dalrymple 21* (20b 2x4)   Abdul Razzaq 1.2-0-6-1

16.6

Abdul Razzaq to Dalrymple, OUT, slower delivery chipped into the leg-side and that's a good catch from Shoaib Akhtar, making good ground from deep mid-on running forward and taking that low, with a little roll at the end. Good stuff and England are looking deep in trouble here, although there is a glimmer in that they they know they've got a long batting line-up

JWM Dalrymple c Shoaib Akhtar b Abdul Razzaq 27 (29m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 96.42

England 114/6   MH Yardy 10* (8b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 3-0-17-2

19.1

Abdul Razzaq to Read, OUT, a huge heave high into the air and that does straight down the throat of Rana Naved on the square leg boundary who waits for it and takes a good catch in the end

CMW Read c Naved-ul-Hasan b Abdul Razzaq 13 (9m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 118.18

England 130/7   MH Yardy 11* (10b 1x4)   Abdul Razzaq 3.1-0-17-3
