A breathless game that was more one-sided than Pakistan's tail let on. Sam Billings produced a brilliant cameo, Liam Plunkett unleashed fury and hellfire. Stephen Parry's superb spell of slow-mo spin was critical. And Pakistan never recovered from the failings of their top-order.

So, thanks for reading. Have a look at George Dobell's match report, which will be updated here shortly, and have a gander at this factoid as well. In becoming the oldest player from a Test country to make his T20I debut, Rafatullah Mohmand beat a few with more than 20,000 international runs. More in our Top Fives.

Shakeena Samadh: "Mr. Miller make sure to remind people of tomorrows pink ball thriller too :)" Oh yes, indeed. History in the making at Adelaide tonight... tune in, or drop out.

Join us again tomorrow for the second match of three.

Topley to Imran Khan, OUT, nope, he can't! A swing, an edge, all over Red Rover!
