ICC World Twenty20 - 13th match, Group E

England v Pakistan

England won by 6 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)

6.1

Yardy to Salman Butt, 1 run, slung in low and on middle, Butt pushes it down to mid on

6.2

Yardy to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, wow, almost some flight on this, I wasn't expecting that, Hafeez turns his wrists over it and sends it gently down to long on

6.3

Yardy to Salman Butt, 1 run, Butt down on one knee and sweeping, connects well enough for a single

6.4

Yardy to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, quicker ball this time, outside off, Hafeez advanced and strokes it beautifully though the covers for four

6.5

Yardy to Mohammad Hafeez, FOUR, oh dear, Yardy under pressure from the off, this is too short and pulled hard in front of square for another boundary

6.6

Yardy to Mohammad Hafeez, 1 run, better ball this time, but the damage is done and Hafeez is content to push it down the ground for one

Pakistan 56/1   MH Yardy 1-0-12-0

10.1

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, well bowled and missed stumping, it was flighted outside off, Akmal skipped down and missed his leg-side flick but Kieswetter could not hold on

10.2

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 1 run, this time it's calmly clipped away for a single

10.3

Yardy to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, Yardy strikes! Not the smartest of shots that from Hafeez, he walked down the wicket, Yardy saw him coming and slipped it in quicker, Hafeez slashes it to short third man who holds on

Mohammad Hafeez c Broad b Yardy 18 (22m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

10.4

Yardy to Shahid Afridi, OUT, Oh no, suicide from Afridi! Pakistan are always moments away from episodes like this. Afridi pushes the ball straight to cover and sets off for a single that never existed, Akmal sends him back, Afridi stands there, and it's all over. Absolute madness and a crucial wicket for England.

Shahid Afridi run out 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

10.5

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, this time it's worked off the inside edge down to fine leg

10.6

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, lovely finish to the over, and Yardy has done very well here, full and flighted, spinning away past a flashing outside edge

Pakistan 78/4   MH Yardy 2-0-14-1

12.1

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, a fraction short, attempted cut, not timed to point

12.2

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, good ball here, touch more air, Akmal defends

12.3

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 1 run, Akmal on the big sweep here, connects well enough to clear the infield and land one-bounce to deep midwicket

12.4

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, good ball here, nothing Misbah can do, but defend from the crease

12.5

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, arrowed in once more, Misbah sweeps without getting much of it and is rewarded with a single

12.6

Yardy to Umar Akmal, no run, slung in low and fast, Akmal stretches and defends

Pakistan 88/4   MH Yardy 3-0-16-1

14.1

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 1 run, not great from Akmal here, gets into position to sweep very early, so that when the ball lands well outside off all he can do is tap it tamely to short fine leg

14.2

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, good ball again from Yardy, Misbah comes forward and defends into the off side for one

14.3

Yardy to Umar Akmal, 1 run, Akmal looking for something expansive, swishing this away into midwicket but can't time it

14.4

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, top bowling from Yardy, slung in quickly, Misbah tried to give himself room but it was on him too quickly

14.5

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, good again, quick and Misbah can't do anything but defend

14.6

Yardy to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, very smart from Yardy and slightly suicidal from Misbah, he got into a reverse sweep position almost while Yardy was still running up, it left him a sitting duck for a quicker full ball which Yardy duly fired it and bowled him

Misbah-ul-Haq b Yardy 13 (15m 14b 0x4 1x6) SR: 92.85

Pakistan 102/5   MH Yardy 4-0-19-2
