View dismissal Azhar Ali* run out (Taylor/†Buttler) 36 78 54 1 1 66.66
19.3 Rashid to Mohammad Hafeez, calamity! Hafeez has run out his captain...! Steered the ball straight to backward point and then called Azhar through, but he was never in the picture, he turns and stops as if to remonstrate, swipes the air with his bat. To be fair, he didn't respond to the initial call and was then up the creek 92/2
View dismissal Babar Azam c Rashid b Woakes 22 44 30 2 0 73.33
10.6 83.5 mph, breakthrough! And it's the short ball which works. Entices a hook from this time, he had to drag it from outside off, took mostly top edge and Rashid steadied himself under the catch at long leg 45/1
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Root b Willey 45 67 71 2 2 63.38
29.4 69.6 mph, top-edged out towards deep square leg... and taken! Hafeez's slow wind down comes to its conclusion with a tame flick into the deep, miscued it high to the fielder 132/3
View dismissal Sarfraz Ahmed c sub (CJ Jordan) b Ali 26 37 26 3 0 100.00
30.3 52.4 mph, comes charging down the pitch, slogs to leg - and picks out the fielder in the deep! Sarfraz has a brain fart and hands his wicket to Moeen! He was going so well but tried to force it, just after losing his partner 135/4
View dismissal Shoaib Malik run out (sub [CJ Jordan]) 16 50 29 0 0 55.17
41.2 Topley to Wahab Riaz, another run out! Waqar not impressed in the dressing room. It was just nudged into midwicket, Malik came charging up the pitch, it's a swift pick-up by Jordan and a direct hit on the turn. Excellent work, but what has happened to Pakistan? 161/8
View dismissal Mohammad Rizwan run out (Roy/†Buttler) 1 7 3 0 0 33.33
32.2 from Ali, another run-out, Rizwan wandering down the pitch! Either he didn't call or Malik didn't hear it because he wasn't moving, Rizwan realised far too late and Roy was able to scoop the ball up at midwicket, underarm to Buttler, who completed the dismissal 138/5
View dismissal Iftikhar Ahmed c Root b Woakes 3 11 10 0 0 30.00
35.4 84.1 mph, and another! Falling in a heap here. Another short-ball wicket for Woakes as Iftikhar goes to pull, gets elevation but not the distance and picks out deep square-leg. 145/6
View dismissal Anwar Ali c Ali b Topley 7 15 19 0 0 36.84
39.3 this has gone miles in the air and is safely taken! Another bit of pretty brainless cricket from Pakistan as Anwar tries to launch this back towards Dubai, it's a back-of-a-length ball and it gets way underneath it. Moeen does well to settle under a steepler 156/7
Wahab Riaz not out 33 49 35 0 3 94.28
View dismissal Zafar Gohar c †Buttler b Woakes 15 22 15 0 1 100.00
46.3 89.3 mph, gone this time, swinging to leg against a back-of-a-length delivery and gets a top edge through to Buttler. Been a short-ball day for Woakes 187/9
View dismissal Mohammad Irfan b Woakes 0 18 7 0 0 0.00
49.5 87.8 mph, cleaned up! Full, straight, Irfan swung and Woakes hit off stump...he finishes with four wickets, so eight in his last two innings 208/10

View dismissal JJ Roy c Shoaib Malik b Mohammad Irfan 7 9 6 1 0 116.66
2.2 82.4 mph, extra lift from a length and Roy spoons it to cover! The giant picks up his first victim, he punches the air in delight... Roy was pushing out in front of him, closing the face slightly and a thick leading edge flew towards the edge of the ring 12/1
View dismissal AD Hales c Mohammad Rizwan b Zafar Gohar 30 94 49 2 1 61.22
20.3 54.8 mph, done him! It was on the cards. Lovely bowling. Floated up full, Hales leans forward and prods in front of his pads, the outside edge carries low to slip 87/3
View dismissal JE Root c Iftikhar Ahmed b Zafar Gohar 11 15 14 1 0 78.57
5.5 54.9 mph, Root slogs a full toss straight to deep square leg! Wicket in his first over for Gohar, he'll bowl better balls for less reward in his international career, for sure, but they don't add descriptions in the scorebook. Root just shovelled it straight to Iftikhar a few yards in, took a good catch above his head 27/2
View dismissal EJG Morgan* b Shoaib Malik 35 73 58 4 0 60.34
21.5 55.7 mph, and another! Lovely delivery, but Morgan has missed it by a long way. Playing back, it pitched on middle, turned sharply and struck off stump. Morgan comprehensively defeated 93/4
