ICC World Twenty20 - 13th match, Group E
England won by 6 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)
Played at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados (neutral venue)
6 May 2010 (20-over match)

Broad to Kamran Akmal, OUT, gone this time! Broad strikes and England really needed that. Short and Akmal tried to hook it, it climbed too much for him, got a top edge and looped gently behind the stumps to Kieswetter, who held on to a much easier chance

Kamran Akmal c †Kieswetter b Broad 15 (19m 18b 2x4 1x6) SR: 83.33

Pakistan 31/1   Salman Butt 14* (11b 2x4)   SCJ Broad 1.5-0-9-1

Swann to Salman Butt, OUT, gone! Well, that's almost come out of nowhere. Butt danced down the track and lashes it skimming to cover, where Collingwood nonchalantly takes the catch. Crucial breakthrough for England

Salman Butt c Collingwood b Swann 34 (39m 26b 3x4 1x6) SR: 130.76

Pakistan 71/2   Mohammad Hafeez 18* (13b 2x4)   GP Swann 1.2-0-5-1

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

Pakistan 77/3   Umar Akmal 6* (6b 1x4)   MH Yardy 1.3-0-13-1

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

Pakistan 77/4   Umar Akmal 6* (6b 1x4)   MH Yardy 1.4-0-13-1

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   Umar Akmal 17* (19b 1x4)   MH Yardy 4-0-19-2

Sidebottom to Umar Akmal, OUT, what a catch from Pietersen! Brilliant stuff, dug in short from Sidebottom, Akmal smashed it miles in the air down to deep midwicket, Pietersen running back and around from a straightish midwicket, stuck his hands out and snaffled an excellent take

Umar Akmal c Pietersen b Sidebottom 30 (29m 25b 2x4 1x6) SR: 120.00

Pakistan 118/6   Abdul Razzaq 2* (4b)   RJ Sidebottom 1.4-0-17-1

Broad to Fawad Alam, OUT, gone this time, pretty similar to the last ball and Alam tried to cut, but it was too close to him, ended up edging tamely behind

Fawad Alam c †Kieswetter b Broad 1 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Pakistan 120/7   Abdul Razzaq 3* (5b)   SCJ Broad 3.2-0-22-2

Sidebottom to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, gone! Razzaq can't repeat the dose, another pretty gentle full toss, perhaps a bit lower this time, Razzaq tries to smash it away but gets it off the bottom of the bat and it loops out gently to long off, who gleefully takes it

Abdul Razzaq c Bresnan b Sidebottom 10 (20m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

Pakistan 132/8   Mohammad Amir 3* (6b)   RJ Sidebottom 3-0-28-2

Bresnan to Mohammad Amir, OUT, well, Aamer has looked uncomfortable all innings, and this time he's gone, dug in at the body from Bresnan, Aamer skipped leg side to give himself room for a cut, it was too close to him and he ends up sending it looping to point, where Swann and Yardy almost collide taking the catch

Mohammad Amir c Yardy b Bresnan 3 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Pakistan 132/9   Saeed Ajmal 0* (0b)   TT Bresnan 3.1-0-21-1
