  • So 374 to get from the 50 overs. Pakistan have a huge task in hand and they will need to be at their brilliant best. England batters have done their job and the onus will now be on their bowlers now. Second innings begins in a while. So join us for that one.
  • As for Pakistan's bowling, there was not much to tell. When a team scores in excess of 350 it is an obvious thing that bowler's would be taken to the cleaners. Ali, Afridi and Yasir Shah were amongst the wickets column but they all went in excess of 6 runs in an over and there was not much to talk about.
  • The innings started off positively for England with both the opener's Roy and Bairstow getting to their respective fifties. The opener's added a mammoth 115-run stand for the opening wicket. Bairstow then departed however Root and Roy continued the good work. There was a slight break due to rain. Pakistan though benefited from it and got rid of Jason Roy and Joe Root. Pakistan though could not capitalize on it. Buttler along with his skipper added 162-run stand off just 89 balls. The right-hander was the man in charge. Though Morgan got his fifty quickly but it was Buttler who stole the show. He started from ball one and got to his 100 off just 51 balls.
  • Jos Buttler walks of to a standing ovation from the crowd and he is being congratulated from the Pakistan players. His carnage of 110 off just 55 balls has seen England post 373.
  • 49.6 Just a single to end! Top, top last over. Just the 5 from it. Full and on off, Morgan shuffles across and works it through mid-wicket for one. ENGLAND FINISH WITH 373!

  • 49.3 Another one on the body of the batsman, Buttler works it through square leg for only a single. The first half of the over has belonged to Pakistan.

  • 34.4 The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.
  • 34.3 In the air but in no man's land. Floated on middle, Morgan comes down the track and chips it towards long on. He does not time it well and it work's in his favour as it falls short of the man in deep there. They take two.

  • 32.4 On off, Root pushes it to the man at cover.
  • 32.3 NOT OUT! Umpire's call it is. A low full toss on middle and leg. The ball was going away with the angle. Root looks to play it across but misses. Hasan Ali and Sarfaraz have a discussion and then the latter signals T. Replays roll in and the Hawk Eye shows the impact was in line but it was going to just about hit the leg stump. Umpire's call it is and hence Root survives. Pakistan though retain their review.

Fakhar Zaman runs to his left and puts in a dive to stop the ball. He gets there but seems to have touched the rope as he does not get up and go after the ball after pulling it back.

  • 30.4 Shorter on off, Root pulls it away for a single.

  • 28.5 Full ball on off, Root drives it through covers for a run.
  • 1323 Local. Good news. The covers are coming off and it should not be long before we resume play. We are hearing that it is a 1330 Local start. So we are very close from resumption.

  • Joe Root is the new man in.
  • 18.6 OUT! In the air... and that is a brilliant, brilliant catch. Bairstow can't believe it and nor can we as Pakistan have been extremely poor in the field today. The change of angle for Afridi and the change of bowling for Pakistan has worked wonders. A much-needed wicket for Pakistan. Shaheen comes around the wicket and bowls it short and on the body. Bairstow pulls it hard but hits it a little too flat. Zaman at deep square leg, runs to his right, then leaps, tries to take it reverse cup but the ball pops out but he keeps his eyes on it and hangs on in the second attempt. 50 and out for JB and Shaheen is delighted. Pakistan now need to build on this. 115/1
  • 18.5 FOUR! Poor, poor bowling! A freebie for Bairstow to get to his half ton. 9th in ODIs! He would love to make it a big one here. This is short and down the leg side, JB helps it on its way to the fine leg boundary.
  • 18.4 Another two! On the leg side again, JB works it fine on the leg side, it is a little wide from the fielder there and two results.
  • 18.3 Excellent running! Bairstow flicks it with soft hands towards mid-wicket. They run the first one quickly, then go for the second and complete it with ease.
  • 18.2 The slower one and it is on the shorter side, Bairstow looks to pull but it does not bounce as much as he expected it to. Hits him on the elbow.
  • 18.1 A little too straight to begin with, Roy works it through backward square leg. He almost slips after playing the shot but keeps his balance and then completes a run.
  • Shaheen Afridi is back!
  • 17.6 A single to end! So a good comeback after going for a boundary early on in the over. Just 5 from it. This is eased down to long off for a single. 106/0
  • 17.5 Well bowled! This is bowled flatter and just outside off, it is the slider again. Roy gets beaten as he is a touch late in his shot. He tried to hit it through the off side again.
  • 17.4 Drags his length back and it is quicker outside off, Roy looks to cut but misses. It zipped through.
  • 17.3 Another one of those very full deliveries, Roy once agan jams it out but this time to covers.
  • 17.2 FOUR! In the air... catch it is the call but it is away from the fielder! Lovely shot. Roy stays leg side of this floated delivery on the off stump, he hits it wide of long off for a boundary.
  • 17.1 Very full, almost a yorker on off, Roy jams it out back to the bowler.
  • 16.6 The batsman has punched that ball through the off side. 101/0
  • 16.5 Around middle and off, Bairstow works it through mid-wicket for a couple. A couple taken to bring the 100-RUN STAND.
  • 16.4 Steps back to the leg side and hammers this down to long off for a run.
  • 16.3 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. One run added to the total.
  • 16.2 Full on middle, pushed back to the bowler.
  • 16.1 Outside off, punched through mid off for a single.
  • DRINKS BREAK. Business as usual for England. Bat first, score quick, keep scoring quicker and pile on pressure on the opposition. In form, both Roy and Bairstow are devastating. Pakistan would want a wicket soon, though they might rue the run out chance missed of Bairstow.
  • 15.6 FOUR! Cracking shot to end the over! Long hop, around middle, Bairstow rocks back and pulls it through mid-wicket for a boundary! 13 from the over. 96/0
  • 15.5 HALF CENTURY FOR JASON ROY! His 13th in ODIs. Always has the penchant for scoring big in the first game of a series. Outside off, punched off the back foot through mid on for a run.
  • 15.4 FOUR! Nicely played. Full and outside off, Roy brings out his reverse sweep and gets it past a diving short third man!
  • 15.3 Around middle and off, worked through mid-wicket for a single.
  • 15.2 The batsman rocks onto the back foot and punches the ball. Two runs added to the total.
  • 15.1 Outside off, punched off the back foot for a single.
  • Yasir Shah into the attack.
  • 14.6 Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. 83/0
  • 14.5 Driven through mid on by the batsman. One run added to the total.
  • 14.4 NOT OUT. Umpire's call stays! Fired in down the leg side Bairstow misses his flick and is hit on the pads. Sarfaraz screams his lungs out but the umpire stays unperturbed. The ball goes to short fine leg and the batsmen take a leg bye. The keeper and bowler have a chat and decide to take the review. Hawk Eye shows the ball to be clipping leg stump.
  • Huge LBW shout! Not given! Is Bairstow in trouble? Pakistan review. Looks to be missing leg...
  • 14.3 Punched off the back foot by the batsman. They pick up a single.
  • 14.2 Punched off the back foot by the batsman.
  • 14.1 SAFE! Imad has made a mess of a simple run out chance. Full and around middle, Roy comes down the track and looks to flick but misses. The ball goes off his pads towards backward point and Roy takes a couple of steps but is not sure where the ball has gone. Bairstow jogs right down the track and is almost within handshaking distance to Jason. He has to turn back and a run out is on offer. The throw comes in a good pace to Imad and the bails are off but the first thing we hear from Sarfaraz is 'KYA YAAR!' Replays show why as Imad appeals and celebrates. Before the throw comes in, Wasim disturbs the bails with his left hand. What a reprieve for Jonny. He was not even in the frame before he dived after the throw came in.
  • Run out? Or missed out? Looks like Imad has broken the stumps with his hand.
  • 13.6 A length ball outside off, Bairstow looks to work it to the leg side but is beaten by the slowness of the pitch. He is early into the shot and misses his tuck, getting hit on the thigh pads. 80/0
  • 13.5 Another short ball, extra bounce, Jason adjusts nicely by arching back and guiding it towards third man for a single.
  • 13.5 WIDE. A bouncer way too high, outside off, Roy lets it go and Sarfaraz has to leap to collect.
  • 13.4 Works this through mid-wicket for a run.
  • 13.3 Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman.
  • 13.2 That is a run stolen. Full and outside off, Roy slashes hard and there is a noise as the ball goes past. Seemed like an inside edge but the ball does not carry to Sarfaraz. He gets a bad bounce and fumbles and the batsmen pinch a run. Bye signalled from the umpire though.
  • 13.1 A length ball around off and middle, Bairstow turns this around the corner towards fine leg for a single.
  • 12.6 Full and around off, worked straight to short mid-wicket. 75/0
  • 12.5 Outside off, Roy looks to cut but the ball skids through and goes off the outside edge towards short third man.
  • 12.4 Backs away and works this through mid on but short mid-wicket intercepts with a dive to his left.
  • 12.3 Short and outside off, punched straight to point.
  • 12.2 Down the leg side, helped towards fine leg. 'ONLY ONE!' yells Sarfaraz to his fielder.
  • 12.1 Full and outside off, punched wide of mid off for a single.
  • 11.6 The batsman has punched that ball through the off side. One run added to the total. 12 from the over. 73/0
  • 11.5 FOUR! Streaky! That is unlucky for Hasan Ali. Outside off, on a length, Roy looks to punch it through the off side but the ball nips back in, takes the inside edge and scurries over the stumps to the fine leg fence!
  • 11.4 FOUR! That is too good a shot. A short ball outside off, Roy comes forward and plays a flick-pull. More of a flick, less of a pull but the ball races in front of deep mid-wicket and beats him!
  • 11.3 Pushes this wide of mid on for three runs.
  • 11.2 Full and outside off, driven straight to mid off.
  • 11.1 A short ball outside off, Bairstow lets that pass him.
  • 10.6 Goes back and nudges it through square leg for one more. 61/0
  • 10.5 The batsman has punched the ball off the back foot.
  • 10.4 Down the leg side, Bairstow just milks it through mid-wicket, sees the empty space and jogs back for the second. This is a big ground.
  • 10.3 Outside off, punched off the back foot for a quick single.
  • 10.2 Backs away to the leg side and has a hack, is nowhere near the pitch of the ball and gets a thick inside edge onto his pads.
  • 10.1 Close call. Fired down the leg side, Roy looks to sweep but misses. The ball hits Sarfaraz' gloves and hits the stumps. There is a stumping appeal but no one is going anywhere.
  • POWERPLAY 2 time! Four fielders allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over.
  • 9.6 Excellent from both batsmen. Full and outside off, Roy taps it towards point, looks at Bairstow and then both are off. 57/0
  • 9.5 The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot.
  • 9.4 Full and around off, driven straight back down the ground.
  • 9.3 A short ball, pulled straight to deep mid-wicket for a single.
  • 9.2 Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
  • 9.1 A length ball, outside off, Roy swings hard but the slow pitch induces an inside edge. The ball goes wide of mid-wicket and the batsmen return for the second. Sarfaraz has his yelling going on...
  • Hasan Ali is the new bowler.
  • 8.6 The batsman has played it towards mid-wicket. One run added to the total. 52/0
  • 8.5 On middle, pushed through mid on for a run.
  • 8.4 50-RUN STAND IS UP! Terrific start from England. A player who has just come off a terrific season in the Indian T20 League joining forces who has been missing cricket due to injury woes. Together, they have eased out all fears of rustiness. Roy comes down the track and works it wide of mid on for a quick single. The fielder has a shy at the non-striker's end but misses. Roy has now skipper past Bairstow.
  • 8.3 Follows the batsman down the leg side, Roy can only push it back to Imad.
  • 8.2 On middle and leg, punched back to the bowler.
  • 8.1 Full and around off, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 7.6 Around off, short in length, worked wide of mid on for a run. 10 from the over. 49/0
  • 7.5 Full and outside off, driven straight to mid off.
  • 7.4 SIX! Wow. Is hitting a biggie over cover a fashion these days or what? We saw a couple in the last 2-3 days in the Indian T20 League and now Roy plays one. A length ball, outside off, Roy stands tall and lofts it cleanly over cover! Back spasm? Who, Roy?
  • 7.3 A bumper, hardly comes at pace, Bairstow calmly pulls this through the mid-wicket region for a single.
  • 7.3 Wide down the leg side, the batsman leaves it alone. The umpire has signalled a wide.
  • 7.2 Loose from JR. Full and outside off, Roy looks to leather this through the off side but the ball comes on slowly and goes off the inner half of the bat towards mid on. A single taken.
  • 7.1 Good bowling from Faheem. Sees Roy jump out and digs it in short. Jason bails out of the shot and sways away.
  • 6.6 Full and outside off, driven towards long off for one more. 39/0
  • 6.5 Works it through the leg side for a run.
  • 6.4 Tea pots from the captain. Sarfaraz is furious with his fielders. Full and around middle, Bairstow flicks it through mid-wicket and tests the fitness of the Pakistan fielders by running two. Sarfaraz is not happy with the effort and is about to say something but keeps mum.
  • 6.3 Arrowed in on middle and leg, flicked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 6.3 WIDE. Down the leg side, flick shot missed.
  • 6.2 Around middle, worked straight to short mid-wicket.
  • 6.1 EDGED, BUT NOT SLIP! Why, oh Sarfaraz, why? Quicker one outside off, Roy looks to cut but gets a thick outside edge. There is no soul in the slip region and the ball races away. Faheem Ashraf gives it a good chase from short third man and pulls the ball back, parrying it to Afridi from short fine leg. Three runs taken.
  • Spin time. Imad Wasim into the attack.
  • 5.6 Flicks this wide of mid on for a single. 31/0
  • 5.5 Full and straight, watchfully pushed towards mid on.
  • 5.4 Fuller, around off, pushed through the covers for a run.
  • 5.3 The batsman flicks it away with a wristy shot for a single.
  • 5.2 No wide signalled. Did that hit the thigh pad? Faheem telegraphed that he is going to be bowling this cross-seam. But he directs this down the leg side. Roy looks to pull but misses.
  • 5.1 Full and outside off, Roy is slowly getting his timing, as he drives it confidently towards mid off.
  • 4.6 FOUR! Probably the easiest ball of the over for YJB to hit. A half-tracker, right in the middle of the pitch. Bairstow picks the length up in a trice and pulls it powerfully to the right of the man at deep mid-wicket. 12 from the over, England are up and running now. 28/0
  • 4.5 Fullish, outside off, thumped powerfully but straight to mid off.
  • 4.4 FOUR! Second one of the over. But not a bad ball. Dug in short, outside leg, a bit of a tester from Bairstow but he reacts well. He gets back and across to pull, is cramped for room but manages it to get it off the glove through the vacant fine leg region.
  • 4.3 Outside off, a length ball again, punched straight to cover.
  • 4.2 FOUR! Very strong there, is this Yorkshire lad. A length ball, around middle, Bairstow uses his bottom hand, gets his wrists into play and flicks it through mid-wicket for a boundary!
  • 4.1 That is a lovely nut. Afridi comes in from over the wicket and lands it on a good length around off. Bairstow looks to defend but the ball moves away and then bounces a tad low. Jonny boy is beaten.
  • 3.6 Lands this on a length outside off, Roy quietly pushes it towards cover. Nice comeback after the six by Faheem. 16/0
  • Mid on goes back. Fine leg and third man come up.
  • 3.5 Full and around off, watchfully pushed back again.
  • 3.4 Now he watchfully defends this like an obedient kid.
  • 3.3 SIX! Gets out of jail! The release shot from Roy comes out at last and one won't die wondering. He is not a block-all-balls batsman and eventually connects one. Steps down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and bang. Swings it cleanly over long on. First maximum of the day. That is the case with Bairstow and Roy. 3 overs 9, can quickly become 6 overs 50.
  • 3.2 Play and a miss! No freebies from Pakistan. On a length outside off, Roy looks to play that to the off side but the ball swings away late and beats the outside edge.
  • 3.1 Angling in from outside off, Bairstow confidently strides forward and works it wide of mid on for a single.
  • 2.6 IN THE AIR... JUST WIDE! This is a good battle between Afridi and Roy. Full and around off, Roy walks into the shot again and looks for a flick. Again, he is early into the shot and another leading edge is induced. It is uppish and goes back to the bowler and Afridi sticks out his left hand. But the ball is just wide. Escapes past him and goes down the ground. Two runs taken. Roy is searching for some time in the middle. The bowling has been very good. Nothing loose so far. 9/0
  • Another change in the field. Fine leg comes up, square leg goes back.
  • 2.5 Nicely played, with a full face of the bat, but there is an obstruction in the form of cover.
  • 2.4 Yorker around off, watchfully dug out towards cover.
  • 2.3 Leading edge, but safe. Full and around leg, Roy looks to flick but is early into his shot. The bat turns in his hands and the ball goes off the leading edge towards cover.
  • 2.2 Walks into the shot, the ball comes in, goes off the inner half and rolls towards mid on.
  • 2.1 Full and around off, watchfully defended.
  • 1.6 Around off, pushed towards mid on for a quick run. 7/0

  • 1.4 Walks down the track and pushes it towards point.
  • 1.3 Outside off, driven straight to cover.
  • 1.2 That nips back in, from outside off, Roy looks to tuck but misses. The ball comes in long way and hits him on the body.
  • 1.1 Full and around off, watchfully pushed back.
  • Faheem Ashraf to bowl with the second new ball.
  • 0.6 FOUR! Lovely shot to get underway! Full and around off, Bairstow drives this straight back past the bowler. Mid off tries to get across to his right but cannot do so. 6/0
  • 0.5 On a length around middle, angling away, solidly defended.
  • 0.4 The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground.
  • 0.4 WIDE. Down the leg side, Jonny gets across and lets it go.
  • 0.3 Nice shot, driven straight down the ground but Afridi sticks out his left hand to parry it towards mid off.
  • 0.2 Full and straight, hint of shape in, worked towards mid on.
  • 0.1 Around middle and leg, Roy works it through mid-wicket for a single.
  • Out come the players for the home side and the visiting one. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy are the openers for England. Shaheen Afridi to start off proceedings to Roy. Here we go...
  • TEAM NEWS - The big news is that there is no Jofra Archer for England. Roy, Bairstow and Moeen Ali - all return to the English unit. For Pakistan, no Shoaib Malik, in spite of him being available.
  • TOSS - Pakistan have won the toss and elected to bowl first.

England Vs Pakistan Live Score (ODI) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • So that is it from this game! There are still three more matches to go though. The next one will be played on the 14th of May at 1300 local (1200 GMT). Will Pakistan level the series or will England take an unassailable lead? We'll have to wait to find out. Till then take care and goodbye!
  • Jos Buttler has been awarded the Man of the Match for his scintillating 110* off just 55 balls.
  • So just like we mentioned in the first innings, not a lot can be said about a team which concedes above 350. However, there is a stand out for the hosts and it was David Willey. It was probably his spell towards the end which won the game for them. On a day where most of the bowlers went for more than 6 per over, he went at under it and got two crucial wickets.
  • After Buttler's magnificent ton and handful contributions from the English top order, the hosts managed to get to a total which all thought England would defend quite easily. That was not the case though. The Pakistan openers got their team off to a brilliant start. Imam fell but Babar Azam then continued with Zaman. The right-hander got to yet another fifty and Zaman got to a brilliant ton. When the two were batting, Pakistan were favourites. However, they fell in quick succession and then a collapse seemed on the cards. Asif Ali, who got a life at the very start of his innings, struck some lusty blows. He along with his skipper, got his team back into the game. They needed 53 in the last 5 overs but wickets at regular intervals and some brilliant bowling ensured it is the hosts who finish on top.
  • WOW! Amazing game! A complete run fest. It is England who came out on top in the end but Pakistan surely gave them a run for their money. At once, it also seemed they would get over the line but some exceptional death bowling saw the hosts take a 1-0 lead in the series.
  • 49.6 A single to end! Top delivery once again. A yorker on middle, Hasan jams it down to long on and a single is taken. Customary handshakes taking place as ENGLAND WIN BY 12 RUNS!
  • 49.5 A dot now! 14 needed from the last ball. Full and wide outside off, it is the perfect full length delivery outside off, just inside the tramline. Hasan lets it be. He wants a wide but it is not one.
  • 49.4 Just a single which means, if England do not bowl an extra, they will win it. Full and outside off, it is carved out to sweeper cover for a single.
  • 49.3 A dot! Worst thing for Pakistan. It is just inside the tramline on the off side. Sarfaraz goes after it but misses. 15 in 3, the next ball has to go.
  • 49.2 Outside off and full again, Hasan swings but it goes off the bottom towards a very fine short third man. A single. A little to the left or the right and it would have been a boundary. 15 in 4, need a boundary do Pakistan.
  • 49.2 WIDE! Outside the tramline on the off side and it has been wided.
  • 49.1 Full outside off, Hasan Ali swings his bat at it. He does not time it well. It falls short of long off and they get a couple. 17 off 5 needed now.
  • Chris Woakes to bowl the final over.
  • 48.6 Just the couple to end! Shorter and on off, Sarfaraz flat-bats it over mid off and takes two. Just the 8 from the over, 18 needed in the last one. However, it is Hasan who will be on strike. 355/7
  • The new man in is Hasan Ali.
  • 48.5 OUT! Plunkett gets another. A very full delivery on off, Faheem hits it high up in the air towards mid off where Stokes calls for it and then takes it. He may not have been expecting the short one there and hence, could not get the timing.
  • 48.4 Pakistan are dealing in singles when boundary is the need of the hour. Continues bowling it short, it is pulled through mid-wicket for one.
  • 48.3 Just a single again! England won't mind this at all. Short and on the body. Faheem looks to pull but it goes off the higher portion of the bat and towards fine leg for one.
  • 48.2 In the air... but safe! A short ball on middle, Sarfaraz fails to get on top of the bounce, he only gets a top edge but it lands safe towards deep square leg. They go for the second. Willey throws it to the keeper who looks to flick it onto the stumps but misses. There is no one backing up so they take the third.
  • 48.1 Just a single to begin with! Full and outside off, the batsman looks to drive it through the off side but it goes off the inner half towards the leg side for one.
  • Liam Plunkett to bowl the all important 49th over.
  • 47.6 DOT! Another top over. Just the five runs and a wicket from it. A full toss outside off, Sarfaraz looks to put bat on ball but misses. 27 now needed in 12 balls. Willey's spell comes to an end, a match-winning spell one can say. He has gone for 57 in his 10 and taken two crucial wickets. 347/6
  • 47.5 Goes short again, Ashraf upper cuts it towards third man for only another single. Pakistan need boundaries, singles won't do them any good.
  • 47.4 Very full and outside off, Sarfaraz looks to go over covers but it goes off the inner half towards mid off for one.
  • Faheem Ashraf walks out to bat next.
  • 47.3 OUT! Willey's exceptional spell continues! He bounces out Imad Wasim. A short one and it is on the body of Wasim. He is cramped for room as he looks to pull. The ball goes off the top edge and towards the third man region. Buttler runs there and takes it with a dive forward. A brilliant catch under pressure by Buttler.
  • 47.2 Low full toss outside off, Sarfaraz just hits it towards third man for a run.
  • 47.1 Full length ball outside off, Sarfaraz hits it wide of deep cover and runs the first one hard. He straightaway calls for two and gets it.
  • 46.6 SIX! BANG! 17 from the over. A huge one, exactly what Pakistan needed. They are right back in it now. 32 in 18. The googly and it is outside off, Imad smacks it right of the middle and over the long on fence. 342/5
  • 46.5 just a single now as this is miscued towards long off.
  • 46.4 Another couple! This is short and on middle, Ahmed goes back and pulls it powerfully through mid-wicket. Two taken.
  • 46.3 Excellent fielding! The two runs saved by JB could be crucial here. Sarfaraz makes room and guides it past point. Jonny runs to his left in the deep and then with a dive pushes it back in. They go upstairs to check and replays show that he has done really well.
  • 46.2 FOUR! Brilliant from Sarfaraz! He makes room and Rashid bowls the googly on off, it turns back in. Sarfaraz goes against the turn, inside out and over covers for a boundary. 6 from the first two. This has to be a big over.
  • 46.1 Dances down the track and powers it past the bowler for a brace.
  • 45.6 A dot to end a top class over from Willey. Just the 4 runs and the big wicket from it. A short one on off, Imam looks to upper cut but misses. 325/5
  • 45.5 Overthrow! Bonus runs for England and they would need them. This is slapped towards mid off. Plunkett there dives to his right and stops it. He throws it towards the bowler off balance. It is a wayward one. Willey fails to collect it and an extra run is taken. Two in total.
  • The new man in is Imad Wasim.
  • 45.4 OUT! Ali holes out. This over keeps getting better for the hosts. Just 2 from the first three balls and now the wicket of the dangerous Ali. Very full and on off, Ali looks to go over long off this time but does not get the desired elevation. It goes straight to Stokes who takes it and then tumbles onto the ground. 51 in 26 needed and only the bowling all-rounders to come. Asif Ali's wicket was probably the one which turns the tide completely into England's favour.
  • 45.3 Swing and a miss! This is full and wide outside off. Ali looks to go over long on but misses.
  • 45.2 A couple now! Brings up Asif's fifty. He holds the key here for Pakistan. Can he take them over the line? He gets to the milestone by strokes it wide of long off.
  • 45.1 Just short! A yorker outside off, Asif Ali looks to jam it out but misses. Buttler seems to have taken it on the bounce. Actually that had been taken but the sound there was of the bat hitting the ground and not the ball. A dot though.
  • 44.6 The last ball is a dot! So 8 from the over. The slider and on the stumps, Sarfaraz cuts but finds point who was brought in a couple of balls ago. 321/4
  • 44.5 Another couple! This is worked with soft hands towards mid-wicket and the batters take two. So without much risk taken, this over has gone for 8 and a ball still to go.
  • 44.4 Makes room again this time, Rashid fires it on middle, it is guided past point for a brace.
  • 44.3 Brings out the sweep, beats short fine leg. The man in the deep runs to his right and keeps it down to two.
  • 44.2 The slider on the pads, it is worked towards short fine leg for one.
  • 44.1 That was outrageous! Sarfaraz almost hits it onto his own stumps. He makes a lot, a lot of room there. Rashid follows him. He then guides it. The ball goes very close past the leg pole and down to short third man for one.
  • Adil Rashid is back on.
  • 43.6 Another top yorker to end! It is outside off, Ali once again fails to put bat on ball. So despite the biggie, only 8 from the over. 61 more needed in 36. 313/4
  • 43.5 Looks to be cheeky but does not come off! Shuffles right across and tries to paddle but the ball is way too outside off. It ends up going between Asif's legs.
  • 43.4 Good running! Another low full toss outside off, it is carved towards deep point. They take one, then go for the second and complete it.
  • 43.3 A low full toss outside off, just inside the tramline. Asif looks to put bat on ball but misses.
  • 43.2 SIX! Pounded over the fence! Not sure what Willey was bowling here. With mid on and mid off up, that was in the slot, full and on off. Ali says thank you very much and powers it over the long off fence. Pakistan favourites now. 63 of 40.
  • 43.1 A yorker outside off, Ali jams it out to mid off.
  • David Willey is back on!
  • 42.6 On the shorter side, Ali pulls it all along the ground to deep square leg for a single. 9 from the over, Pakistan going along well here. 305/4
  • 42.5 FOUR! There comes the boundary they need every over! Full and wide outside off, it is carved over point and the ball races away to the fence.
  • 42.4 Fuller in length on middle, it is driven to mid on. 300 up for Pakistan.
  • 42.3 A dot now! Gold dust at this stage! Short and on the body, Sarfaraz pulls but straight to mid on.
  • 42.3 WIDE! Short and outside off, it bounces too high and a wide has been signaled.
  • 42.2 Another short one and on the body, Ali looks to pull but does not time it that well. A single to fine leg. Two singles to begin this over. Singles won't harm England.
  • 42.1 On the shorter side, Sarfaraz pulls it towards mid on for a single.
  • 41.6 Good fielding! That could have easily been a boundary. A poor ball, it is short and down the leg side with fine leg up. Sarfaraz works it to that region where Root runs to his right and stops it with a slide. Still 13 from the over, 78 needed in 48. 296/4
  • 41.5 A single now! This is whipped through the leg side towards deep mid-wicket. Willey runs around and fumbles but no extra run conceded.
  • 41.4 FOUR! This is turning out be a very expensive over. 11 from it with two balls to go. It is the slower one and outside off, Ali slaps it past mid on and the ball races away.
  • 41.4 Second wide of the over! This one is for a delivery which is way outside off.
  • 41.3 A single now so that means 6 from the first three balls as it is guided down to third man.
  • 41.2 FOUR! In the gap! Length and on middle, Sarfaraz pulls it in the gap in the mid-wicket region for a much-needed boundary. 5 from the first two balls, they need to make this over count now.
  • 41.2 WIDE! Short and outside off, Sarfaraz lets it be and it has been called a wide for height.
  • 41.1 Length and around off, Ahmed slaps it back to the bowler. A dot to begin!
  • 40.6 Poor from Buttler. Woakes bowls a beautiful slower bouncer. Asif looks to hit it over third man but misses. The ball bounces in front of Buttler and he misreads the bounce and it goes away. The fielder in the deep runs to his right and saves it from going to the fence with a dive. They take a couple. Byes signalled by the umpire. 283/4

  • Skipper, Sarfaraz Ahmed is the new man in.
  • 39.1 OUT! Top edge... taken! Plunkett strikes with his first ball of his new spell. Just what the doctor ordered for England. A partnership forming between the two batters and it has been cut short just at the right time. This is banged in short and around off, Sohail looks to slap it but ends up slicing it towards Bairstow at sweeper cover who takes an easy catch. 100 more needed in 65 balls.
  • Liam Plunkett is on now!
  • 38.6 Tossed up on off, Harris comes down the track and hits it over covers, The outfield is slow so it does not get to the fence. They run three. 274/3

  • 37.4 Sohail strokes it through covers for one.
  • 37.3 DROPPED! That should have been taken. Willey is the culprit. This could prove a big let off. Rashid is not a happy man and rightly so. This is tossed up on off, this is a little too full. Ali goes for it again but does not get underneath it. He ends up hitting it flat towards long off. Willey runs in and tries to take it with a dive forward but spills it.
  • 37.2 Clever bowling! Pushes it through and outside off, Ali is a touch late in the shot as he tries to cut. Gets beaten.
  • 37.1 SIX! That is colossal! Ideal start to the over and pressure is now on the bowler. This is tossed up on middle, it is a little too full. Ali sends it sailing into the long on stand.

  • 36.5 Haris strokes it down to long off and takes one. Clever batting.
  • 36.4 This is worked through mid-wicket for one.
  • 36.3 SIX! Not quite off the middle but it goes all the way. Asif Ali uses his feet and goes with the turn, does not time it all that well but gets enough to clear the long on fence. Ali managing to ease the pressure here with these hits.
  • 36.2 Plays the sweep and plays it nicely towards backward square leg for a couple.
  • 36.1 This is eased down to long off for one.

  • Haris Sohail is the new man in.
  • 33.5 OUT! Caught and bowled! Both the set batsmen are out of here. Just what England wanted and not what Pakistan would have wanted. A lucky dismissal to be honest this one. It is a nothing delivery, it is very short and on off, it skids through. Azam goes back and looks to drag his pull but the ball hits the higher portion of the bat and lobs back to the bowler who accepts a dolly. Two wickets in quick succession have put Pakistan totally on the back foot here.
  • 33.4 The googly around off, Ali goes back and pushes it to covers.
  • 33.3 A single now as Azam works this full ball to mid-wicket.
  • 33.2 Another couple as he works it in the gap in the mid-wicket region. Brings up yet another fifty in this format. A real run machine in ODIs for Pakistan. He raises his bat to soak in the applause but he knows there is still a long way to go.
  • 33.1 Shorter and outside off, it is slapped through covers for a single.
  • Asif Ali walks out at number 4.
  • 32.6 OUT! That is right off the toe-end of the bat. Excellent, excellent review from Morgan. The magnificent innings by Fakhar Zaman has come to an end and England will be relieved as he was taking the game away from them. Woakes continues bowling it way too wide outside off, this one was very wide just inside the tramline though. Zaman still tries to reach it but there is a noise as the ball passes the bat. Buttler collects it and just puts in a muted appeal. Woakes though thinks there is something and he puts in a loud appeal. Morgan then reviews. Replays roll in and they show a spike on Ultra Edge. The English players are pumped up. England back on top now. 147 needed in 102. 227/2

  • 32.3 Very full and outside off, this is hit to the man at covers. Zaman going after everything here.
  • 32.2 Almost gets done in by the spin there! A full toss outside off, Zaman drives it towards deep point. The ball bounces and then spins towards the wrong side of the fielder. He though does well to stop himself and stop it. Two taken.

  • 31.6 Floated on off, Fakhar after getting two boundaries on the trot defends it to see off the over. 220/1

Good length ball on off, Zaman drives it wide of sweeper cover for a couple to get to his 4th ODI ton. He removes his helmet and raises his bat as the crowd here in Southampton rise to the feet and give him a round of applause for his innings.

  • 3.3 Length and outside off, Zaman goes hard at it. Ends up mistiming it to mid off for a quick run.

  • 2.4 Slightly outside off, Imam looks to punch but it goes off the outside edge and down to third man for one.
