Scorer: M Venkat Raghav | Commentator: Andrew Miller

10.20pm So, England bounce back from their six-wicket drubbing with a 95-run thumping. Performances from every member of the team - Hales hundred, Roy and Root fifties, key new-ball spells from Topley and Willey, four wickets in the middle overs from Woakes, and a fine spell of 10-0-32-1 from Adil Rashid, to name but the main men.

For Pakistan, Wahab Riaz was magnificent with the ball and Sarfraz defiant with the bat, but much like England in the Test series, a handful of outstanding contributions couldn't atone for a whole load of not-a-lot.

aadil140: "DARPOOK (coward) innings? seriously bro? i'd rather say BAHADUR ( brave) innings" For what it's worth, I thought he battered it like a badmash. But what would I know?

Anyhow, that's your lot for this evening. Thanks for dropping by. Have a read of David Hopps' match report before you go, and from myself, Andrew Miller, and Gnasher, good night and see you next week for match No. 3.

Topley to Mohammad Irfan, OUT, yorker! That's the way to bring down skyscrapers, denotate them at the foundations ... Irfan's timbers tumble, and it's 1-1 with two to play!

Mohammad Irfan b Topley 0 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Peter: "Len Hutton? What about Peter May....." Nah, I can never forgive him for his stint as chairman of selectors

Topley to Mohammad Irfan, no run, thumped into the leg side

Irfan calls for another bat. Perhaps he'd prefer to use a stepladder

Osama: "sarfaraz I salute you....such a DARPOOK (Urdu) Innings " I assumed it wasn't Swahili...

Topley to Yasir Shah, SIX runs, there's six of them! Slower ball, too short, Yasir was anchored on the back foot and that has travelled way over midwicket!

Omarr: "104 need off 34 balls? Even Afridi was unable to do that.. He managed 102 off 37"

END OF OVER:
45 | 3 Runs 1 Wkt | PAK: 181/9 (103 runs required from 30 balls, RR: 4.02, RRR: 20.60)

Waqar khairi: "Way too many comments involving misbah and afridi. I guess we will never be over them" I'm still not over Len Hutton

Woakes to Sarfraz Ahmed, OUT, lovely line, a cutter, nipping back in as Sarfraz attempts a back-foot drive but is cramped for room by the grip off the surface, and Buttler tidies up
