9.23pm So that's the end of that. Another remarkable contest, another England victory while chasing a total. They are in a good place heading towards the main event. Join us again at Trent Bridge on Thursday. From Alan, Ranjith and myself, good night!

Jonny Bairstow is Man of the Match: "When you get into positions like that, to make a big hundred, it's frustrating when you drag one on. You want to make 170-180. Jason and I complement each other pretty well. Having a laugh out there, enjoying each other's success."

Eoin Morgan: "Extremely proud, we felt that was on par, and Jonny and Jason were brilliant. With the bowling, we made in-roads in the first ten overs. Pakistan came back and posted a par score. When guys perform like this it builds confidence, for looking ahead, it builds confidence in the group."

Mark Wood should be fit for Trent Bridge, he adds.

Sarfaraz Ahmed "As a captain, 360 is not an easy target to chase. But there are some postiives. Before the World Cup, both openers played very well. And Asif Ali, it's a good sign for us."

9.16pm Right, let's hear from the chief pony himself. It's time for some presentations...

9.13pm Dez: "If England are 1 trick ponies, please explain why they've won virtually every away series recently too - ranging from Sri Lanka to New Zealand??" Because their trick is awesome? Even if they sometimes cock it up...

Harneet Singh: ""One Trick Ponies", "Flat Track Bullies", "One Dimensional". Agreed the bowling is a bit weak - though a lot changes with Wood and Archer but to call the batting one-dimensional? You don't beat Australia 4-1 in Australia if you're one-dimensional. And that's only one of the examples, mind. Also, if the rare collapses make England a so called "One Trick Pony" - and that's a ridiculous term by the way - then you need to not watch the game at all. "

Mark: "Well... that was pretty brutal. Don't whinge about it: imitate it and try to execute it even better than England are. England's style of play has refreshed a tired format in the way that Sri Lanka's careful batting changed ODIs in the 1990s."

9.11pm Hypocaust: "This series currently has the highest run rate (7.15 rpo) of any men's ODI series or tournament of 2+ matches.

9.06pm Well, what are you supposed to make of that then? England were theoretically challenged today, but turned a stiff chase into a cakewalk, thanks to Jonny Bairstow's seventh ODI hundred. Valuable time in the middle for Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali, and another pair of decent knocks from Jason Roy and Joe Root. England's batting is cooking on gas ... now, about their bowling.

For Pakistan, it was a day to remember for Imam-ul-Haq, a massive 151 from 131 balls seemed to have set his side up for a shot at squaring the series. They need some extra oomph in their bowling... perhaps Shadab Khan's return from illness can give them a World Cup lift?

Ghalib: "Now I have seen the most biased side of yours. Had the catches been taken 300 could have been a dream for England today. It's Pakistan that offers such a low level game. Don't expect to do it against Ind, Aus, NZ, SA...." Yes, there is that too ... but England do bat pretty deep. And Jos Buttler was rested today too.

Asif Ali to Morgan, 1 run, pushed into the covers. England have demolished a massive target with 5.1 overs to spare!
Asif Ali to Ali, 1 run, hoicked to the leg side, scores level
