England tour of United Arab Emirates, 3rd ODI: England v Pakistan at Dubai (DSC), Feb 18, 2012
England won by 9 wickets (with 76 balls remaining)
Played at Dubai International Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
18 February 2012 - day/night match (50-over match)

Finn to Imran Farhat, OUT, and this time too good for him! Farhat played way from his body and feathered a nick through to the wicketkeeper. He needn't have played at the delivery, really, as it was full and a little wider than the one before but he was drawn forward and dangled his bat with disastrous consequences ...

Imran Farhat c †Kieswetter b Finn 9 (15m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 90.00

Pakistan 22/1   Mohammad Hafeez 9* (12b)   ST Finn 1.4-0-4-1

Broad to Azhar Ali, OUT, what a comeback from Broad, inducing a thin edge as Azhar tries to guide the ball down to third man! The delivery was too quick for the batsman, perhaps tucking him up a bit, and the ball scraped the edge of the bat as Azhar attempted a costly dab. After his seven-ball shocker to start with, Broad is smiling again

Azhar Ali c †Kieswetter b Broad 5 (22m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.46

Pakistan 49/2   Mohammad Hafeez 29* (27b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 1.1-0-16-1

Finn to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, another one gone! This has been a harum-scarum opening from Pakistan, making first use of the wicket for the first time in the series. Hafeez got across to one that pitched outside off but nipped back and rapped him in front - it was probably going on to hit leg. Finn is cutting a swathe through the top order again!

Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Finn 29 (45m 28b 3x4 0x6) SR: 103.57

Pakistan 49/3   Asad Shafiq 0* (5b)   ST Finn 4.1-0-11-2

Broad to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, got him! Misbah's out now and Pakistan really in trouble. He was pushing at a length ball outside off stump, a hint of movement again produces a thick edge to Graeme Swann at slip. Probably could have left it but Farhat decided to push away from his body and nicked off

Misbah-ul-Haq c Swann b Broad 1 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Pakistan 50/4   Asad Shafiq 0* (8b)   SCJ Broad 2.4-1-16-2

Swann to Asad Shafiq, OUT, all happening, appeal for lbw, turned down, and now a run out chance and given by the third umpire. It ran off the pad into the leg side, Cook came in and through back to Kieswetter who removed the bails and Shafiq's bat bounced in the air as he slid back in, unfortunate perhaps but he's gone

Asad Shafiq run out 18 (56m 39b 2x4 0x6) SR: 46.15

Pakistan 97/5   Umar Akmal 22* (36b 1x4)   GP Swann 1.5-0-5-0

Broad to Umar Akmal, OUT, another storming catch from Patel dismisses Umar Akmal! The delivery was full, on the stumps and clipped towards midwicket where Patel scrambled round to grasp the looping ball one handed at full stretch. It was a tumbling effort - and not the most graceful - but he pouched it like good'un and England regain some of the initiative

Umar Akmal c Patel b Broad 50 (117m 92b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.34

Pakistan 176/6   Shahid Afridi 50* (52b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 8.5-2-33-3

Anderson to Shahid Afridi, OUT, bowled and Afridi's gone and another very important wicket for England. Length ball tried to be whipped into the leg side, Afridi missed, the ball came off the pads and ran onto middle and off stumps. The booming ends to soon for Pakistan

Shahid Afridi b Anderson 51 (77m 55b 3x4 1x6) SR: 92.72

Pakistan 180/7   Adnan Akmal 3* (4b)   JM Anderson 8-0-42-1

Finn to Adnan Akmal, OUT, cleaned up and ends a very average knock from Adnan Akmal. He really struggled and eventually falls trying to lift a length ball from Finn into the off side, he's beaten for pace and loses his middle stump. Wasted quite a few deliveries there Akmal, in stark contrast to his brother's fine innings

Adnan Akmal b Finn 9 (29m 22b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.90

Pakistan 204/8   Umar Gul 18* (21b 2x6)   ST Finn 9.3-1-23-3

Anderson to Saeed Ajmal, OUT, bowled him tried to be swung to leg and missed, again off the pads into the stumps. Inswinger from Anderson does the trick, he cleans up Ajmal who tried to swing from the hip, the job nearly done by England

Saeed Ajmal b Anderson 4 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Pakistan 209/9   Umar Gul 19* (23b 2x6)   JM Anderson 9.4-0-47-2

Broad to Umar Gul, 1 run, OUT, tucked into the leg side, Gul won't come back for some reason sends Cheema back but he's totally stranded and run out by half the pitch

Aizaz Cheema run out 5 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

Pakistan 222/10   Umar Gul 27* (27b 1x4 2x6)   SCJ Broad 10-2-42-3
