Fall of wickets: 1-32 (Alex Hales, 4.1 ov), 2-47 (Jason Roy, 6.4 ov), 3-74 (Joe Root, 10.3 ov), 4-109 (James Vince, 13.4 ov), 5-136 (Sam Billings, 16.3 ov), 6-150 (Jos Buttler, 17.5 ov), 7-151 (Liam Plunkett, 18.1 ov), 8-154 (David Willey, 18.4 ov)
18.1 to LE Plunkett, edged and gone! Pakistan hitting back. Full outside off, it was there for the shot but Plunkett just got a thick outside edge to Sarfraz. 151/7
18.4 to DJ Willey, caught this time! Picks out deep square leg. Short ball, clever bowling, Willey connected cleanly but placed it perfectly to the man. 154/8
17.5 to JC Buttler, he strikes back! Buttler halted in his tracks as he tries another of those reverse scoops to third man. It was a slower ball and he just got a very thin graze through to the keeper. Muted celebration from Tanvir. 150/6
16.3 to SW Billings, wonderful catch! Super stuff from Umar Akmal at long on...it's one of the boundary parries we see fairly often these days. Billings dragged the delivery from outside off down the ground. Akmal takes the catch very close to the rope, his momentum makes it hard to balance, he knows he's about to topple over the boundary but manages to flick it up, then steps over the boundary and is able to return to the field of play to hold the catch a second time. Great effort.. 136/5
4.1 to AD Hales, strikes first ball! Boom Boom is at the party. Hales trying to flick a shortish delivery through the leg side, the ball skidding on straight and takes Hales around the knee roll. 32/1
6.4 to JJ Roy, he's held it with a juggle! Two, maybe three grabs for Sarfraz. Roy went for a slog sweep, thin bottom edge I think, Sarfraz couldn't glove it cleanly, the ball bounced between his gloves, pads, a bit of leg perhaps as well before he does very well to grab it inches above the ground. 47/2
13.4 to JM Vince, third for Afridi! Big blow, too. Vince goes for the sweep, gets a meaty top edge which settles comfortably into the hands of deep backward square leg. 109/4
10.3 to JE Root, finds midwicket this time! He looked to have connected well again - another slog sweep, although the ball was a touch wider on off stump - but Afridi times his leap to perfection to pluck it out of the air. Afridi everywhere tonight. 74/3

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-51 (Ahmed Shehzad, 4.6 ov), 2-60 (Rafatullah Mohmand, 8.1 ov), 3-90 (Mohammad Hafeez, 11.2 ov), 4-93 (Sohaib Maqsood, 12.3 ov), 5-107 (Umar Akmal, 14.3 ov), 6-120 (Shoaib Malik, 16.4 ov), 7-148 (Shahid Afridi, 17.6 ov), 8-162 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 19.1 ov)
17.6 to Shahid Afridi, and now he's got him! What an over. Full outside off, another mighty swing from Afridi, slices off the thick outside edge and is held at short third man. 148/7
19.1 to Sarfaraz Ahmed, first strike to Woakes! Sarfraz trying his favourite sweep, it was full outside off, he's right across the crease and basically hits it straight into his stumps.. 162/8
11.2 to Mohammad Hafeez, gone now! Plunkett goes fuller, Hafeez aims to work it into the leg side, it was on the pads, but he gets a leading edge which loops gently to mid-off. The change has worked. 90/3
14.3 to Umar Akmal, what a catch! Brilliant from Buttler down the leg side, but did it come off the pad? Akmal isn't happy at all. Regardless, though, the take was outstanding as Buttler dive full-length to his left to take it one-handed. First replay seems to show it was just pad. No reviews in the T20s.. 107/5
16.4 to Shoaib Malik, finds deep midwicket! England closing in on the series. A shorter delivery, Malik went for the pull, it came from high off the bat - near the splice - and it's a simple catch for Billings. 120/6
4.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, lovely bowling! Terrific flight, dropped the length a bit shorter, then it turned beautifully past the outside edge of the advancing Shehzad which gives Buttler a comfortable stumping. 51/1
8.1 to Rafatullah Mohmand, another stumping! The pressure tells. He comes out of his crease and then drives over the top of a full delivery. Neat take and swift work from Buttler. 60/2
12.3 to Sohaib Maqsood, lovely from Rashid! Super bowling. He gave this a lot more air, very full, it was another googly and Maqsood plays all over the top of it...not a very clever innings. 93/4
