20 February 2010 - night match (20-over match)

Yasir Arafat to Denly, OUT, Gone! Arafat strikes! Another failure for Denly, ball nips back in through a massive gap between bat and pad and the stumps are rattled

JL Denly b Yasir Arafat 5 (15m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

England 12/1   IJL Trott 7* (13b)   Yasir Arafat 1.5-0-6-1

Umar Gul to Trott, OUT, heaves into the leg side but it just dribbles away...Trott doesn't want the single, but Pietersen charges up the pitch and Trott is sacrificed which is the right thing for England

IJL Trott run out 39 (65m 51b 3x4 0x6) SR: 76.47

England 110/2   KP Pietersen 60* (37b 4x4 3x6)   Umar Gul 2.1-0-16-0

Saeed Ajmal to Pietersen, OUT, goes for a sweep and is struck on the back leg, the umpire is quick to raise his finger and that ends a fine innings from Pietersen...well, replays suggest that may have gone down leg side

KP Pietersen lbw b Saeed Ajmal 62 (52m 40b 4x4 3x6) SR: 155.00

England 120/3   EJG Morgan 7* (3b 1x6)   Saeed Ajmal 3.1-0-25-1

Umar Gul to Morgan, OUT, another one goes, Morgan tries to loft straight down the ground but instead it goes straight up in the air and long off gets round comfortably

EJG Morgan c Shoaib Malik b Umar Gul 9 (10m 6b 0x4 1x6) SR: 150.00

England 125/4   LJ Wright 2* (3b)   Umar Gul 3.1-0-27-1

Yasir Arafat to Wright, OUT, another one goes miles in the air, but not with the required distance and Afridi steadies himself under the catch...importantly for Pakistan it's a dot ball, the wicket is a bonus

LJ Wright c Shahid Afridi b Yasir Arafat 13 (12m 8b 0x4 1x6) SR: 162.50

England 144/5   PD Collingwood 8* (3b 1x6)   Yasir Arafat 3.3-0-28-2

Yasir Arafat to Bresnan, OUT, low full toss hammered straight down to long off where Imran Nazir takes a good catch...late wickets boosting Pakistan

England 144/6   PD Collingwood 8* (3b 1x6)   Yasir Arafat 3.4-0-28-3
