    27.3 Amir comes back and hoodwinks Roy! Slower-ball bouncer cuts away from the batsman outside off, 129ks, Roy was early into the shot. He pulls and sends a top edge to Hasan Ali at deep square leg 164/4
    4.5 picks out mid-on! Amir gives Hales a few words. A full ball, Hales goes for another drive, the bat twists a little in his hand and he mistimes a simple catch to Malik. Amir cut his fingers across the ball, so credit to him as well 37/1
    9.1 big wicket! Root going for a drive, gets an inside edge which demolishes leg stump...Root indicates the ball just nipped back a touch. 64/2
    14.3 well, my goodness! Morgan has come down the pitch and driven a full toss straight back to Imad. Off the bottom of the bat. Soft dismissal 92/3
    41.4 picks out short fine leg! No century for Stokes. Moves across outside off stump, trying to scoop this, doesn't get it high enough to clear the fielder 258/6
    37.4 good response by Gul, bangs this in short again, cramps Bairstow for room as he looks to ramp it down to third man and ends up splicing it up to backward point. May have taken some glove first. Yes, went off glove then onto the face of the bat 219/5
    44.3 and another one goes...Amir takes his third. A short ball, hurries Dawson as he goes for the pull, it goes straight up the air and midwicket just has to take a few steps to his right to take the catch 274/8
    43.2 dragged on! Pakistan keep chipping away. A slower ball outside off, Woakes early on his drive and gets an inside edge into the timber 270/7
    48.1 and strikes again...a short ball, another slower one, Willey connects quite cleanly but doesn't get the distance and picks out deep square leg 283/9

    13.5 an appeal for caught behind, not given by umpire Fry. YJB almost immediately signals for a review. Suggests there was some bat there.There was a noise as the ball ran past the bat, and snicko detects a spike. Azhar has to exit. Two wickets in three balls for Wood! Banged in short and outside off, Azhar was caught between pulling and leaving. He does a bit of this and a bit of that. Looks highly ungainly. Grazes the top edge (a very thin one) and settles into the gloves of YJB 77/3
    4.5 this is just shovelled into the lap of mid-on! Woakes lands it full and just outside off, Sharjeel stays back and aims to clear mid-on. No dice. He just scoops it up and spoons it to Wood 22/1

    13.3 cleaned 'em up! Wood revvs up his car and rides it through the gate of Azam. Tactful use of the crease, he went wide of it and unleashed an inducker at 142ks. Beats the batsman, who aimed a drive, on the inside, and splatters the middle stump 76/2
    39.6 Dawson strikes again as Malik's encore fails. Malik steps away outside leg, Dawson gives it some air on the leg stump. Malik looks to loft again. This time he can only skew it off the toe end to long-off 256/5
    37.4 Dawson holds his nerve and strikes on ODI debut. Mid-on was in the circle. Sarfraz does not shy away from a challenge. He charges at the left-arm spinning allrounder and goes against the spin. Quicker than the previous delivery, instead of lofting it, he ends up dragging it in the air. Hales judges it superbly. He runs back and takes it over his head. Sarfraz signs off as the leading run-getter in the series. Well done 240/4

    42.2 Bairstow nails a direct hit at the striker's end to catch Nawaz short. This is getting tighter in Cardiff. Heading down leg, deflected off the thigh. The pair chance a leg bye. Bairstow fumbled on the first attempt but recovers. Removes his right glove and hits the stumps with an over-arm throw. This game is slipping out of Pakistan's grasp 266/6
