swing and a miss! England hold on for the series. It was actually a length ball outside off, Anwar had a mighty heave but couldn't make contact.
England win by three runs and clinch the series with a match to spare. They celebrate, but there's no doubt some relief in there, too. It did not look like Pakistan would get anywhere near this close after England's spinners had tried down the middle overs. Then, however, Afridi had an eight-ball blitz and the last two overs were full of mayhem and madness. Wonderful entertainment for the full house. But, in the end, Chris Woakes just managed to hold his nerve having been taken apart from Afridi (but also removing him, it was that sort of day).
david: "What a thriller! Well done, England. Heartfelt commiserations to Pakistan" Well said, David. rakthim: "Sigh of relief for the English. But whattta match..."
Right, I'm off for a lie down. You'll be able to read George Dobell's report of all the fun here. We will be back for the final match in Sharjah on Monday which completes this tour and series. For now, though, from Andrew McGlashan it's goodbye
Last ball of a bonkers match (unless we get a Super Over)
on leg stump, he swings hard but he picks out long leg! Oh, boy, it was there to hit...picked out Plunkett on the boundary
Five to win. Four for a Super Over. Hypocaust: "This has been glorious, ridiculous entertainment. A perfect T20 match."
full outside off, well bowled, Anwar can only drill it down the ground to long off
mohsin: "getting to see everything. now one handed shot. super over is on the way boys"
full outside off, driven to mid-off who is on the edge of the circle
Seven off four needed! Fielders going everywhere
on the pads, poor delivery, it's one-handed swing over square leg and it dribbles into the rope
Sohail Tanvir can hit a long ball...
Hamzah: "My family has gone mad....this game has been epic! Edge of the seat stuff!!"
Woakes is on a hat-trick. What a ridiculous game
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.
Here's the equation: 11 needed off 6 balls. Who has got the nerve? A tie means a Super Over we are told. Woakes to bowl...
full and straight, crunched down to long off so he'll have strike for the final over
another low full toss, driven down the ground to long off...sensible cricket
Calm heads and this is Pakistan's game now
driven very sweetly through the off side
oh boy! Massive bonus for Pakistan. Willey got a good yorker in, was squeezed through the leg side, the throw came in and struck the diving batsman the rebounded away to the boundary. What. A. Moment
goes across the crease at a full toss and swings it behind square on the leg side...Pakistan still have a terrific chance
down the pitch and pings this straight but mid-off is able to get around
Woakes will have to bowl the last over. For now it's Willey
Pakistan needed Afridi to stay there, but he has given them a chance for the final two overs
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
called wide! Full outside off...Afridi will get another ball
Raza Abbas: "Dubai is buzzing with BOOM BOOM in the air!!!"
swing and a miss at the freebie! It was length outside off. Deep breath, everyone
Huge pressure on Woakes...Pakistan with the surge now, 26 needed off 14. This is certainly on
Free hit coming up...game-changing?
that's a huge full toss outside off, Afridi carves it over the off side and clears deep cover...and it's a no-ball!
magnificent! Afridi is turning it on...goes across the crease and flicks a low full toss off the stumps over deep backward square leg. What scenes
full and wide, steered square through the off side to deep cover...more confusion over the second. Afridi wants to stay on strike
straighter this time, heaved through the leg side, Afridi wanted a second to long on but Sarfraz sent him back
Ahsan aslam: "Crowd come aliveeee" Indeed they have
what power! Full outside off and Afridi carves it over wide long-off with a fiercely powerful swing through the line
Chris Woakes has the ball. Majiling: "Will we see BOOM BOOM once in a year magic today"
