England won by 27 runs
31 August 2013 (20-over match)

Fawad Ahmed to Lumb, OUT, first international wicket! Lumb goes for a slog sweep, the ball goes straight up in the air then floats behind the stumps on the breeze. Wade turns, trots back and settles under the catch. Ahmed is on the ledger

MJ Lumb c †Wade b Fawad Ahmed 43 (47m 27b 6x4 1x6) SR: 159.25

England 111/1   AD Hales 65* (41b 9x4 2x6)   Fawad Ahmed 2.2-0-12-1

Faulkner to Wright, OUT, well held! Wright tries to get a low full toss over mid-off, but Johnson times his leap to perfection and holds it two hands, ensuring he doesn't let it spill as he thuds into the ground

LJ Wright c Johnson b Faulkner 30 (20m 18b 3x4 1x6) SR: 166.66

England 157/2   AD Hales 81* (53b 10x4 2x6)   JP Faulkner 2.2-0-28-1

Faulkner to Hales, OUT, still no hundred for England...gets another low full toss which he clouts towards the bottom of the bat and is well taken, low at long-on

England 187/3   EJG Morgan 14* (9b 1x6)   JP Faulkner 4-0-37-2

Fawad Ahmed to Buttler, OUT, well bowled! lovely delivery from Ahmed, bravely flighted up. It grips and spins past Buttler's prod as he just tried to dab it into the off side

England 187/4   EJG Morgan 14* (9b 1x6)   Fawad Ahmed 3.1-0-17-2
