England tour of United Arab Emirates, 2009/10 / Commentary

Pakistan v England T20I Series - 1st T20I

England v Pakistan

England won by 7 wickets (with 9 balls remaining)

17.4

Broad to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, cramps the new batsman for room on middle and off, can only defend back down the pitch...excellent stuff from Broad

17.5

Broad to Sarfraz Ahmed, 1 run, opens the face and runs down to third man

Pakistan 107/6   Sarfraz Ahmed 1* (2b)

18.1

Bresnan to Sarfraz Ahmed, FOUR, lovely stuff from Sarfraz, he has the confidence to go down on one knee and sweep the pace bowler - it was 83mph - past short fine-leg...that takes balls, and skill

18.2

Bresnan to Sarfraz Ahmed, no run, he tries it again, but doesn't make contact on this occasion

18.3

Bresnan to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT, a wicket with a short, wide ball that hardly deserved it, but that's Twenty20...Sarfraz saw width and guided it straight to third man as though giving catching practice

Sarfraz Ahmed c Broad b Bresnan 5 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Pakistan 115/7   Sarfraz Ahmed 5 (5b 1x4)
