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.
Imran on strike ... can he score?
So Imran Khan, Test cricket's runless wonder, is at the crease. EDIT: Apparently it's a different Imran Khan. Of course it is. They are legion!
Aftab.Dawn: "@Miller: for you what was the turning point of this match?" Billings' Billscoops ...
Ryan: "If England win and Plunkett does not get Man of the Match then it is confirmed that Cricket is a Batsmen game. I am a batsmen by the way."
Fine leg comes up, but a deep square leg also in place
suleman: "Aah Lords 2009, I think Pakistan have a real chance again for T20 WC, if Amir and Umer Gul gets back into the team and also their batsman starts playing responsibly."
So, 30 runs from 12 balls. And Jordan back in the attack. A big over now is a must for Pakistan
