Pakistan v England T20I Series - 1st T20I

England v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 8 runs

2.5

Finn to Awais Zia, OUT, ah, done him - Finn's slower ball deceives Zia, who is too quickly through his drive and only succeeds in looping it to mid-off. And Finn doesn't half give the batsman a send off too!

Awais Zia c Broad b Finn 18 (15m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

Pakistan 32/1   Mohammad Hafeez 9* (5b 2x4)   ST Finn 1.5-0-19-1

8.1

Swann to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, on off, turning to hit the pad ... and they turn down a run, with Shafiq scrambling to make his ground. The umpires call for a review. This could be close ... Kieswetter fielded the ball at short square leg and fired a throw to Swann, who took the ball in front of the stumps and then had to swing his arm round behind him to break the wicket. And because his elbow disturbed the bails - with the ball in his hand - he managed to beat Shafiq's dive!

Asad Shafiq run out 19 (27m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 111.76

Pakistan 65/2   Mohammad Hafeez 23* (20b 3x4)   GP Swann 1.1-0-8-0

8.3

Swann to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, flighted, slog-swept but not enough on it ... this time Bairstow makes no mistake with the catch, coming round from deep midwicket. Apologies, I think I might have jinxed Hafeez a few balls back. But, in my defence, that was a stupid time to play such a shot, with Shafiq just out

Mohammad Hafeez c Bairstow b Swann 23 (44m 22b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.54

Pakistan 65/3   Shahid Afridi 0* (0b)   GP Swann 1.3-0-8-1

10.1

Swann to Shahid Afridi, OUT, and he's got the danger man! Afridi chips a full ball from leg stump to midwicket. A very simple chance to Eoin Morgan who didn't have to move to take it with two hands at head height. Afridi tried to use his feet, Swann fired it into leg stump and it just popped up to the fielder

Shahid Afridi c Morgan b Swann 7 (9m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 73/4   Misbah-ul-Haq 1* (3b)   GP Swann 2.1-0-9-2

10.4

Swann to Umar Akmal, OUT, another for Swann! This has been some impact. Akmal with a very poor shot, not catching a big heave down the ground and Dernbach races in from long off to tumble forward and take a fine catch down low, he nearly fumbled it. Akmal didn't learn from the previous game

Umar Akmal c Dernbach b Swann 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Pakistan 73/5   Misbah-ul-Haq 1* (3b)   GP Swann 2.4-0-9-3

19.6

Dernbach to Shoaib Malik, OUT, smashed into the off side off a bit of an edge and Bairstow takes a blinder, screaming off the long off boundary and diving to take the catch coming forward. That is fine work going to his left with two hands

Shoaib Malik c Bairstow b Dernbach 39 (37m 33b 4x4 1x6) SR: 118.18

Pakistan 144/6   Misbah-ul-Haq 26* (26b 1x4 1x6)   JW Dernbach 4-0-31-1
