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

W
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

19.4
1
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.

19.2

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

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

Jordan to Shoaib Malik, 1 run, big full toss...is it a no-ball? Malik swings wildly and it bobbles to the off side. Borderline for waist height and Jordan gets away with it
18.5

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

17.3
W
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

16.1
2
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
