Well, breathless stuff. This game isn't over yet. It's now an over apiece. Pakistan will bat first. What a bonkers game of cricket this has been. So many mistakes in it, but some good stuff as well. Afridi is one of the batsmen at the crease...Jordan will bowl. Umar Akmal the other

Woakes to Sohail Tanvir, 1 bye
it's a bye! We have a Super Over! They are checking for the run out but think Tanvir made it. Yes, he has! He missed his heave, Buttler gathered - he was standing back - and opted to under-arm (he didn't already have his glove off) to the non-striker's end because Anwar Ali had made such a head start on the run

Ahsan aslam: "I cant watch it ... "

One ball. Two runs. One for a Super Over. Khaqan Khan: "I want to see a super over!" You might well do. Long chat between a huddle of England players. It's been a terrificlly entertaining match

Woakes to Shoaib Malik, OUT
he's found long on! This game isn't over yet. He opts for the glory shot, trying to clear the boundary, but he can't get the leverage and it's a simple catch
Shoaib Malik c Billings b Woakes 75 (89m 54b 8x4 2x6) SR: 138.88

Two balls. Two runs

Woakes to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run
clubbed towards mid-off and they scamper the run which brings Malik back into strike

Scott: "England will never be world champions until they learn how to bowl at the death, two games in a row they have failed to do it." This is part of that learning process. It's a tough job. And they won the first two matches, no?

Woakes to Sohail Tanvir, no run
dot ball! It was length again, wider outside off, Tanvir tried to swing through the leg side and couldn't make contact

Fielders going everywhere. Surely Pakistan's game.

Woakes to Sohail Tanvir, SIX runs
that should just about seal it! Can't get the ball full enough, it's on a length at off stump and Tanvir strikes beautifully through the line over long on

josiah: "Dont we only get super overs in the wt20? otherwise it's a tie" Apparently not. No idea why you can't just a tie in bilateral matches. Anyway

Woakes to Shoaib Malik, 1 run
full at the stumps, he can only heave to long on for a single...over to Tanvir

Ten to win. 9 for a Super Over. Woakes to bowl. omkar: "woakes vs malik.. who will be the MoM" Awais: "Super over On the Cards ;-)"

Jordan to Shoaib Malik, 1 run
big full it a no-ball? Malik swings wildly and it bobbles to the off side. Borderline for waist height and Jordan gets away with it
Jordan to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs
down to third man! Swinging himself off his feet. Throwing the bat at a wide delivery, flies off the top edge fine of third man. Advantage Pakistan again
Jordan to Shoaib Malik, no run
gets the yorker bang on target this time, outside off, Malik swings hard and the ball bounces back to Jordan. Priceless dot ball
Jordan to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run
full and straight, sweetly driven back down the pitch, Jordan flings himself to his right in his follow through and finger-tips it towards mid-off

rahul: "shoaib 2.0 is going to win it for pakistan!"

Jordan to Shoaib Malik, 1 run
full toss outside off, crashed square through the off side and deep cover is able to keep it to a single

Rakesh: "@ Adam; Always happy to oblige the English cricket fans; but no worries for Pakistan fans as a dangerous S.Malik is still at the crease and support in Tanveer. Pakistan will still win it from here."

Jordan to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run
full toss outside off is driven to deep cover...that's fine from Tanvir

Jordan to bowl. What could Woakes defend off the last? 10? 8?

Brilliant placement in those last two shots by Malik

Willey to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs
finds the gap again, those two deliveries swing it back Pakistan's way, Malik pulls a short delivery and slots it between deep midwicket and deep square
Willey to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs
oh, fantastically played, he advanced down the pitch, the delivery was back of a length, he opened the face and bisected backward point and short third man
Willey to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run
full outside off, stays in his crease and clubs it to long on

Sohail Tanvir at No. 8. Adam: "Rakesh with the jinx England needed!"

Willey to Shahid Afridi, OUT
taken leg stump! Silence (relatively speaking) from the crowd. Afridi going to sweep a delivery which was not that full, he had moved a long away across, he missed and leg stump as clipped. Was a touch slower, too, at 71mph
Shahid Afridi b Willey 29 (28m 20b 0x4 3x6) SR: 145.00
Willey to Shoaib Malik, 1 run
goes across the crease and clips a full, straight delivery to deep square
Willey to Shahid Afridi, 1 run
drags a length ball down to long on, lost his shape on that shot

Rakesh: "We are seeing a Calm, Cool, Collected & Calculating Afridi today; (A lot of C's) and he looks more dangerous this way rather than when he is a frenzied assault mode. He is going to win this tonight for Pakistan in this mood."

Jordan to Shahid Afridi, 1 run
another full toss, outside off again, and that's hammered towards deep cover but straight to the man on the boundary
Jordan to Shoaib Malik, 1 run
gets a yorker in outside leg stump, well bowled, jabbed into midwicket
Jordan to Shoaib Malik, 2 runs
another low full toss, this time it's driven straighter and deep cover has to run the other way...has Vince flicked this back? Wonderful effort if so. Oh, that's a brilliant. He was running at full pelt but managed to keep the ball in the field of play
Jordan to Shoaib Malik, FOUR runs
low full toss outside off is driven square through the off side and Vince, coming from deep cover, can't haul it in
Jordan to Shahid Afridi, 1 run
lovely batting, if only for a single, as he walks across the crease to a full toss and flicks it with such good timing that it almost carries to deep square
Jordan to Shahid Afridi, 2 runs
gloves, or bottom edges, a pull down the leg side...terrific attempt by Buttler to pull in the catch, one-handed with his left glove, but he managed to take the pace off the ball

Chris Jordan the man in the firing line next
