Pakistan have completed a crushing win to level the series. Afridi applauds his team-mates' efforts before shaking hands with the opposition. What a fiery knock it was from Afridi. Please hang on for quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Taylor: "The last ten overs .. they got the runs and in the end we couldn't keep up with the rate. We got a few starts but didn't go on. All credit to them; Umar Gul bowled well. The pitch broke up a bit in the end; it was dry and abrasive, Gul and Wahab Riaz got some reverse swing. You got to give credit to Afridi who hit some massive sixes."

Afridi: "The way Hafeez started; he played like an experienced player. Misbah and Hafeez took the responsibility to ensure that we played 50 overs. We played mature cricket. In the end, we and Razzaq go like playing Twenty20 cricket. Nothing happenned with the ball in the first 20 overs. Hafeez and Misbah took time; we had wickets in hand and we could play the big shots. Umar Gul is bowling well, in Tests and ODIs. Tanveer, Wahab are doing perfect jobs. "

Man of the match is Hafeez: "We were all looking forward to win this game and I am happy. I was just concentrating and thinking of spending more time out there. The team was looking to level the series; it was a good team effort."

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Good bye and Good luck.
