BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
David Willey1004514.50301210
29.4 to Mohammad Hafeez, top-edged out towards deep square leg... and taken! Hafeez's slow wind down comes to its conclusion with a tame flick into the deep, miscued it high to the fielder. 132/3
Reece Topley1004114.10342110
39.3 to Anwar Ali, this has gone miles in the air and is safely taken! Another bit of pretty brainless cricket from Pakistan as Anwar tries to launch this back towards Dubai, it's a back-of-a-length ball and it gets way underneath it. Moeen does well to settle under a steepler. 156/7
Chris Woakes9.504044.06351210
10.6 to Babar Azam, breakthrough! And it's the short ball which works. Entices a hook from this time, he had to drag it from outside off, took mostly top edge and Rashid steadied himself under the catch at long leg. 45/1
35.4 to Iftikhar Ahmed, and another! Falling in a heap here. Another short-ball wicket for Woakes as Iftikhar goes to pull, gets elevation but not the distance and picks out deep square-leg.. 145/6
46.3 to Zafar Gohar, gone this time, swinging to leg against a back-of-a-length delivery and gets a top edge through to Buttler. Been a short-ball day for Woakes. 187/9
49.5 to Mohammad Irfan, cleaned up! Full, straight, Irfan swung and Woakes hit off stump...he finishes with four wickets, so eight in his last two innings. 208/10
Adil Rashid1015105.10292200
Moeen Ali1003013.00372000
30.3 to Sarfraz Ahmed, comes charging down the pitch, slogs to leg - and picks out the fielder in the deep! Sarfraz has a brain fart and hands his wicket to Moeen! He was going so well but tried to force it, just after losing his partner. 135/4

Mohammad Irfan702914.14243010
2.2 to JJ Roy, extra lift from a length and Roy spoons it to cover! The giant picks up his first victim, he punches the air in delight... Roy was pushing out in front of him, closing the face slightly and a thick leading edge flew towards the edge of the ring. 12/1
Anwar Ali301705.6672000
Zafar Gohar1005425.40346110
5.5 to JE Root, Root slogs a full toss straight to deep square leg! Wicket in his first over for Gohar, he'll bowl better balls for less reward in his international career, for sure, but they don't add descriptions in the scorebook. Root just shovelled it straight to Iftikhar a few yards in, took a good catch above his head. 27/2
20.3 to AD Hales, done him! It was on the cards. Lovely bowling. Floated up full, Hales leans forward and prods in front of his pads, the outside edge carries low to slip. 87/3
Wahab Riaz602303.83202010
Iftikhar Ahmed401804.50151100
Shoaib Malik905616.22212220
21.5 to EJG Morgan, and another! Lovely delivery, but Morgan has missed it by a long way. Playing back, it pitched on middle, turned sharply and struck off stump. Morgan comprehensively defeated. 93/4
