Fall of wickets: 1-82 (Dawid Malan, 13.3 ov), 2-108 (Jonny Bairstow, 18.2 ov), 3-240 (Ben Stokes, 40.1 ov), 4-257 (Joe Root, 42.2 ov), 5-302 (Harry Brook, 46.4 ov), 6-308 (Jos Buttler, 47.2 ov), 7-317 (Moeen Ali, 48.4 ov), 8-336 (David Willey, 49.4 ov), 9-336 (Gus Atkinson, 49.5 ov) • DRS
40.1 to BA Stokes, yorker! Off stump blasted from the ground! That's superb from Afridi, right on the mark first-up, late movement on the reverse swing, and Stokes can't get his bat down in time as he wipes to leg. Shades of Starc at Lord's in 2019, then as now to end a formidable innings. 240/3
42.2 to JE Root, slower ball, leading edge to point! 120kph, as Afridi rolls his fingers down the side of the ball, Root lined up the clip to leg, was through the shot too soon, and Shadab at point rushed back to gather the looping chance over his shoulder, reaching it well with a dive. The end of a doughty knock, but openings at both ends now. 257/4
18.2 to JM Bairstow, drives aerially, but sends it straight into cover's lap! It was well connected, right out of the middle, but he had guided it to Salman Ali Agha, who made no mistake. Wry smile on Haris' face, frustration on Bairstow's. 108/2
46.4 to HC Brook, excellent catch on the edge of the circle! Brook looks to unleash over the covers, but he drags the slower ball as he makes room to leg... too close to mid-off where Shaheen moves smartly to his left and clings on with a stretch of the arms. 302/5
48.4 to MM Ali, splat! Round the wicket, another slower ball, Moeen drags across the line, mistimes his stroke against the 122kph delivery, and out comes the off stump. 317/7
13.3 to DJ Malan, reverse-sweep, and Malan is gone! Rizwan did well there, he got his body in the way initially as the ball bobbled off a top-edge/glove, and reacted quickly as the ball deflected up off his gauntlets and away to the off side. Smothered the chance with a full dive and the opening stand is done. 82/1
49.4 to DJ Willey, leading edge, and well grabbed at mid-on! Willey was through his launch to leg too soon, a high spiralling chance flies down the ground, where Iftikhar sprawls well on the edge of the circle to complete a fine catch. Pakistan have been sharp in the field today. 336/8
49.5 to AAP Atkinson, splat again! Fast, slingy, straight, whacks the off stump half-way up and Wasim is on a hat-trick... which would also bowl England out. 336/9

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Abdullah Shafique, 0.2 ov), 2-10 (Fakhar Zaman, 2.4 ov), 3-61 (Babar Azam, 13.6 ov), 4-100 (Mohammad Rizwan, 22.3 ov), 5-126 (Saud Shakeel, 27.5 ov), 6-145 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 30.1 ov), 7-150 (Shadab Khan, 31.4 ov), 8-186 (Agha Salman, 36.4 ov), 9-191 (Shaheen Shah Afridi, 37.4 ov), 10-244 (Haris Rauf, 43.3 ov) • DRS
0.2 to Abdullah Shafique, rapped on the pads, and the umpire raises the finger! Lovely shape on the ball, classic left arm fast bowler's new-ball dismissal. Shaping back in, beating the pad, hitting the pad. Shafique is advised not to review, and England get off to the perfect start. 0/1
2.4 to Fakhar Zaman, he's going all right! Straight to the pavilion! Couldn't find his touch today, and he forces the issue, running down the wicket only to smear it straight to mid-off. Willey gives him a little salute as he now touches 99 ODI wickets. 10/2
36.4 to Agha Salman, scooped up to Ben Stokes at mid-on, and David Willey has 100 ODI wickets!. Miscued the slap over long-on, and it's old man Ben Stokes who clings on. It's a nice little way to finish for Willey as Pakistan lose their eighth. 186/8
43.3 to Haris Rauf, this one's higher than it is long, and this entertaining partnership comes to an end. Stokes takes a comfortable catch as the curtain comes down on both England and Pakistan's World Cup campaigns. On the day, England were much too good as Pakistan turned out an indifferent performance with both ball and bat. 244/10
27.5 to Saud Shakeel, bowled round his legs! Tossed up outside leg stump, Saud lines up a paddle off his pads, but he hasn't picked the googly. Big rip into his middle stump. Pakistan are all but sunk now. 126/5
31.4 to Shadab Khan, lovely, lovely bowling. A googly that Shadab had a lazy swing at. Shadab fell for it hook line and sinker, and it goes through the huge gap between bat and pad. Shadab goes away grumbling as his truly World Cup campaign comes to an end. 150/7
13.6 to Babar Azam, and Babar, perhaps fittingly, ends the World Cup as he started it, with a pull to midwicket! In a tournament where Pakistan have repeated old mistakes, Babar does the same, pulling to short midwicket, where a fielder is stationed for that exact shot. The Pakistan captain walks into that trap, and pays the price. 61/3
37.4 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, full and straight, hits Shaheen low on the pad and the umpire gives him out. Unless he's got bat on it, this is as plumb as it could possibly get. Yep, it's three reds, and England are one wicket away from a big win. 191/9
22.3 to Mohammad Rizwan, massive wipe across the line, and bowled! Rizwan has a gallop, over-runs the ball after being deceived by the angle from round the wicket, and big turn through the gate adds the final indignity. He collapses with cramp in his followthrough to compound a sorry sight. 100/4
30.1 to Iftikhar Ahmed, has a wipe down the track, skewed into the covers, and Malan does brilliantly to gather That was tricky, he had to weave to track the flight of the leading edge, but pocketed it well to leave Pakistan in the soup. 145/6
