We have a decider to end the tour in Abu Dhabi on Monday. It should be a cracker. England were excellent today. They judged a good total, bowled with fire (as they have all tour) and fielded with zeal. Pakistan had one of their bad evenings, especially with the bat. Stay with us for the presentation news.

A few of you asking for more information about what happened when Finn ran out Ajmal. We only saw one replay, but there was certainly a bit of contact. Didn't escalate, though.

Well, don't think we'll get much of a presentation but I can confirm that Jonny Bairstow is Man of the Match. Fully deserved for the innings and his fielding. You can read all about it in David Hopps' report. With that, I'm going to sign off for the night. From Andrew McGlashan and Alan Gardner thanks for joining us and catch you Monday for the winner takes all clash from Abu Dhabi.

Broad to Shahid Afridi, OUT, gone! Job done by England. Afridi tries to launch a good-length delivery over the leg side and it skews high into the off side where Morgan, running from backward point, holds a good catch. Boy, England have fielded well tonight.

  • England can bounce back - Swann

    A sense of frustration pervaded the England camp on Friday as they reflected on the one that got away. England feel they should have won the first T20I of the three-match series against Pakistan in the UAE, rather than stumble to an eight-run defeat
