Pakistan ease to five-wicket win

Pakistan showed they are focused on finishing their tour on a positive as they warmed-up for the one-day series with a comfortable five-wicket win, with 13 balls to spare, in the Twenty20 at Bristol

Scorecard summary
England144/7(20 overs)
Pakistan148/5(17.5 overs)

So that's a fine win for Pakistan who were never really troubled. Their bowlers restricted England excellently and, though their top-order struggled, Shahid Afridi and Mohammad Hafeez took them home with typically aggressive, commanding knocks. We'll be back live for the first one-dayer at Cardiff on Wednesday. Do join us then

Gough to Abdul Razzaq, FOUR runs
smashes this high in the air, long-on sprints back to the boundary and dives...but can't hold on and, as if to rub further salt into his wounds, it goes for four to end the match

Gough to Abdul Razzaq, 1 wide
outside off, Razzaq swings and misses - and it's called a wide! That's a bit tough on Gough who shakes his head and wears the most wry of smiles

Go on, finish it with a six

w
Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT
inswinging yorker once more, but it's wide and chipped to Collingwood at backward point, who mis-fields it and the ball bobbles up. He collects, takes aim and throws down the stumps to leave Hafeez short by several feet. Brilliant fielding
Mohammad Hafeez run out (Collingwood) 46 (70m 40b 5x4 0x6) SR: 115.00
15.5
Gough to Mohammad Hafeez, no run
super inswinging yorker there from Gough - very nearly breaks through Hafeez's defences but he jams his bat down. That's the Gough of old...
15.4
1lb
Gough to Inzamam-ul-Haq, 1 leg bye
too quick for Inzamam who is beaten by pace and hit on the pad. They run a quick single though
15.3
Gough to Inzamam-ul-Haq, no run
well bowled in the corridor of uncertainty, Inzamam flicks and misses
15.2
Gough to Inzamam-ul-Haq, no run
good reply, swinging into Inzamam who clips it to point. No run on offer there
15.1
6
Gough to Inzamam-ul-Haq, SIX runs
Inzamam simply swings through the line, timing it perfectly and smashing it commandingly over long-on. Fabulous shot!
