Fall of wickets: 1-25 (Phil Salt, 3.1 ov), 2-96 (Will Jacks, 10.1 ov), 3-144 (Jonny Bairstow, 14.6 ov), 4-147 (Harry Brook, 15.4 ov), 5-164 (Jos Buttler, 17.6 ov), 6-165 (Moeen Ali, 18.2 ov), 7-169 (Chris Jordan, 18.6 ov) • DRS
14.6 to JM Bairstow, holes out this time! Looking to muscle it over backward square once more, but Iftikhar is back on the rope to cling on. Back of the hand from Shaheen, so it was on the batter to impart the oomph. He couldn't on this occasion. 144/3
18.2 to MM Ali, low full toss, Moeen holes out to long-on! England's innings is ebbing away a touch now, Moeen can't time it at all as Rizwan tracks round to gather. 165/6
18.6 to CJ Jordan, top-edged on the pull, another one falls! One hand comes off the bat, a big toe-end spirals high to backward square. It's unravelling in the death overs for England. 169/7
3.1 to PD Salt, What a bowling change! Immediate impact for Imad, darting one from around the wicket off a length. Salt tries to get under it but can't find the fence as Shaheen takes the catch at wide long on. 25/1
15.4 to HC Brook, back of a length, Brook makes a mess of it! Rocks back for the cut, doesn't judge the pace or the bounce, thumps middle and off and that's the end of that!. 147/4
10.1 to WG Jacks, Slapped straight to point! Makes room to leg, cuffing through the length, but the pace was a fraction slower, he was through the shot too soon, and Shadab leaps well to gather above his head!. 96/2
17.6 to JC Buttler, pace off, holed out to long-on! Buttler has to go, he aimed for the hills once more, but Shadab swoops in from the deep and clings on low!. 164/5

0.3 to Mohammad Rizwan, hacked across the line, straight to midwicket! Livingstone stoops to gather, barely had to move, and England are up and running! Rizwan has to go without scoring. 0/1
8.1 to Babar Azam, kneels into the sweep, up goes the finger! Big moment this... it looked pretty adjacent to the naked eye, turning back into a planted front foot... any inside-edge? Nope, there is not!. Smashing middle and leg! The skipper has to go!. 67/3
3.3 to Saim Ayub, no question about that one! A launch to leg, looking to get something going, but Topley's extra bounce made the pull a dangerous option. Salt in the deep set himself at square leg. England take command. 14/2
15.6 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Smoked high.... oh so high... and lands safely into the hands of Chris Jordan! Came down with snow on it but Jordan, as ever, keeps his cool. Charged in at first before backtracking to complete the dismissal. Huge wicket. 140/7
19.2 to Shaheen Shah Afridi, Slog sweep, into the wind... and Pakistan are all out! Phil Salt charges in from the fence as it hangs in the air, sets himself and takes a great catch. England win the second T20I by 23 runs, taking a 1-0 lead in the series. A professional performance from England, boosted by the return of Jofra Archer. For Pakistan, they were good in phases but find themselves with some familiar questions to answer.... 160/10
11.1 to Azam Khan, And he starts with a wicket! His first in more than a year as Azam fails to beat Moeen Ali at cover with an attempted lofted cover drive - 90mph, too, which makes it Jofra's fastest ball of the day. 91/5
17.3 to Imad Wasim, Met on the full, timed... and straight to Livingstone at deep cover! Have to feel for Imad, who hits it too sweetly as Jofra overpitches his yorker. A second wicket for the quick on his return. It's been a good day for him and, thus, English cricket. 147/8
18.3 to Mohammad Amir, Slower ball yorker does the trick! Amir tries to ramp but is through the shot because of the lack of pace on an off cutter which goes on to light up the stumps. 154/9
9.3 to Shadab Khan, top-edged on the slog-sweep, Jordan at deep midwicket gathers with a tumble! Not an easy chance, had to sprint in, and it was swirling too, but Rashid strikes and Shadab is gone too soon. 78/4
12.3 to Fakhar Zaman, Livingstone has the last laugh! Slightly straighter, maybe a touch slower and Fakhar throws the kitchen sink but only manages to sky it high into the air. Harry Brook runs in from the fence to take it at about mid on. 100/6
