Highlights

44.2:

356/4

Asif Ali to Morgan, FOUR, short again, Morgan slaps it harder, goes much squarer and finds the extra cover boundary. Just one hit away

43.5:

350/4

Shaheen Afridi to Moeen Ali, SIX, short of length at the body, it was the off-cutter from Afridi which stopped a tad bit, but even as Ali checked his pull shot, the timing was so good that it cleared the square leg boundary comfortably

43.2:

342/4

Shaheen Afridi to Moeen Ali, FOUR, picks the slower ball and drives powerfully over mid-off. Moeen Ali in full rhythm now, wants to finish it off quickly

43.1:

338/4

Shaheen Afridi to Moeen Ali, FOUR, full toss outside off, carves this backward of point, beats the man in the deep as well

42.5:

334/4

Faheem Ashraf to Morgan, SIX, Morgan pulls it into the crowd. Short ball aimed at the body from over the wicket, meant to be an awkward line, but Morgan looks in no discomfort as he swings across over backward square

41.2:

324/4

Shaheen Afridi to Moeen Ali, out Stokes Run Out!! Rotten luck for Ben Stokes. This bullet-drive has deflected straight off Afridi's boot onto the stumps at the non-striker's end, and he was caught backing up too far. Didn't have any time to react whatsoever. Nothing he can do but smile as he walks back. Stokes run out (Shaheen Afridi) 37(38) [4s-2 6s-2]

41.1:

324/3

Shaheen Afridi to Stokes, leg byes, 1 run, couldn't have asked for a better ball than this while going for a scoop. But Stokes has missed this full toss completely. Pakistan go up for an appeal for LBW but surely the impact is outside off. Turned down by the umpire, but they go for a review anyway. And waste it.

40.1:

320/3

Faheem Ashraf to Stokes, SIX, length ball around middle, Stokes has his front leg out of the way for a leg-side swing, which he connects well enough to clear the big boundary over square leg

38.1:

304/3

Hasan Ali to Moeen Ali, FOUR, bullies this through extra cover. What a shot. Length ball just outside off, Moeen Ali blasts it on the up. Extraordinary shot

37.4:

298/3

Junaid Khan to Moeen Ali, SIX, full ball around off, muscled over midwicket. Plenty of power generated from the bottom hand to biff this into the boundary cushions

37.2:

292/3

Junaid Khan to Moeen Ali, SIX, waist-high short ball that has been disdainfully thwacked over midwicket. Flat six for Moeen Ali

36:

284/3

Faheem Ashraf to Moeen Ali, FOUR, flies off the outside edge into the third man boundary. Back of a length delivery outside off, another slash from Ali. Not very convincing but four

35.5:

280/3

Faheem Ashraf to Moeen Ali, no run, dropped! Back of a length delivery outside off, Moeen Ali slaps hard at the width available and hits it uppishly to the left of Imad Wasim at cover. Very catcheable, but Wasim can't hold on

34.3:

278/3

Imad Wasim to Root, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Too close to the pitch of the ball after stepping out, so he can't get much elevation on the drive. Hits it flat and hard to Babar Azam at mid-off. Comfortably held. Root c Babar Azam b Imad Wasim 43(36) [4s-4 6s-1]

33.4:

275/2

Faheem Ashraf to Stokes, SIX, what timing from Stokes, walking into this full ball and then lifting it with a punch over mid-on. Just sumptuous. Carries a long way over the boundary

33.1:

268/2

Faheem Ashraf to Root, FOUR, short one outside off, Root walks down the wicket, flat-bats it down to the long-on boundary for four

32.2:

261/2

Imad Wasim to Root, SIX, tossed up, flighted trajectory, Root comes down the track and lofts it straight down the ground for six

30.3:

249/2

Junaid Khan to Root, FOUR, angling into the pads, Root shuffles across and tickles it down with a deflection to fine leg for a boundary

29.4:

243/2

Shaheen Afridi to Stokes, FOUR, half-volley on the pads, whipped away with utmost easy to the cow corner fence for four

29.3:

239/2

Shaheen Afridi to Stokes, FOUR, tailing in and then straightening, Stokes drives at the original line, gets a thick outside edge within the diving range of Sarfaraz and away to third man for four

28.4:

234/2

Junaid Khan to Bairstow, out Bowled! Oh Bairstow is furious with himself! He has a reverse-swat at the stumps, and further damages them! Not the best of deliveries, a rank length ball that stays a little low, Bairstow was trying to pull it away into the on-side, ends up chopping it onto his stumps off the under-edge. He looks flustered - perhaps a double-hundred was there for the taking today! He raises his bat to the crowd before walking off, though, and soaks in the applause. Bairstow b Junaid Khan 128(93) [4s-15 6s-5]

28.3:

234/1

Junaid Khan to Bairstow, FOUR, short, not too wide, Bairstow creates his own and slaps it over the in-field to the sweeper cover fence for four

28:

229/1

Shaheen Afridi to Bairstow, FOUR, a poor end to the over by Afridi! A half-tracker at a slower pace, into the body, and that's short-arm pulled away towards deep midwicket for four

26.3:

223/1

Hasan Ali to Root, FOUR, half-volley on the pads, whipped away to deep mid-wicket for four

25.4:

215/1

Haris Sohail to Bairstow, SIX, far too full, no scope for turn, Bairstow makes room and just lofts it with ease over long-on for six

25.3:

209/1

Haris Sohail to Bairstow, SIX, gives it too much air, Bairstow is nimble on his feet, charges down the track, and lofts it over long-on into the roof! Fantastic hit!

24.1:

198/1

Hasan Ali to Bairstow, FOUR, length ball with a hint of width, no movement of the width, and he clubs that cross-batted over mid-off to the long-off fence for four

24:

194/1

Haris Sohail to Bairstow, 1 run, 7th ODI hundred for Jonny Bairstow! Just eases a loopy delivery towards long-off for a single, punches Root's glove before reaching the other end, and takes off his helmet after completing the run to acknowledge the applause

21.5:

187/1

Faheem Ashraf to Bairstow, FOUR, half-volley outside off, right in the slot, and that's short-arm punched flat and wide of mid-off for four

20.4:

181/1

Imad Wasim to Root, FOUR, full ball outside off, Root shapes up to reverse, ramps it away towards third man for four

19.4:

170/1

Faheem Ashraf to Bairstow, no run, dropped by the bowler! Almost a return catch! A back of a length delivery angling in, Bairstow tries punching it on the up straight down the ground and through the line, Ashraf sticks up his hand on his followthrough, it bounces off his palm and into the pitch...

17.5:

164/1

Faheem Ashraf to Bairstow, FOUR, short and down leg, Bairstow just gets to the off-side of the ball, and helps it along with a guided pull to the fine leg fence for four - past short fine leg

17.3:

159/1

Faheem Ashraf to Roy, out Caught by Asif Ali! Finally, the breakthrough. It's short, not enough width, Roy comes down the track and slaps it towards cover, off the splice, hence not enough leverage, and Asif Ali looks away - but still manages to hold on to it. Out in the 70s once again, and misses out on a hundred that was there for the taking. Roy c Asif Ali b Faheem Ashraf 76(55) [4s-8 6s-4]

17.2:

158/0

Faheem Ashraf to Roy, FOUR, fuller one outside off, Roy walks across and just scoops/ramps it over short fine leg for four

16.2:

150/0

Shaheen Afridi to Bairstow, FOUR, oh Pakistan! Bairstow swivel-pulls this short ball behind square on the on-side. Asif Ali did the initial part right, put in the slide and got both hands on the ball. However, he lost it while getting up. What's worse? It's gone past the ropes

16:

145/0

Faheem Ashraf to Bairstow, FOUR, no one to stop this! Ashraf goes fuller and Bairstow nonchalantly lifts it over Roy's head. Couple of bounces and into the fence

14.5:

136/0

Shaheen Afridi to Bairstow, SIX, now a six! 19 off the over with a ball still to go. Length ball, Bairstow goes deep in his crease and plays the pick-up shot over deep mid-wicket. Bottom hand power!

14.4:

130/0

Shaheen Afridi to Bairstow, FOUR, four more! Full toss on middle and leg, with a low back-lift Bairstow flicks it through mid-wicket

14.3:

126/0

Shaheen Afridi to Bairstow, FOUR, fifty for Bairstow! Touch short and Bairstow swivel-pulls it behind square after going back in his crease. The England openers are toying with the Pakistan bowlers

14.1:

121/0

Shaheen Afridi to Roy, FOUR, a hit-me delivery from Afridi. A fullish ball down leg and that's been helped on its way. Roy placed it square of the man at short fine leg

14:

117/0

Faheem Ashraf to Roy, 1 run, tucks this short of length delivery to mid-wicket and sets off for a risky single. Fakhar has a shy at the bowler's end, but misses the target. Had he scored a direct hit, it would have been curtains for Roy

13.4:

116/0

Faheem Ashraf to Roy, FOUR, 84.9mph, short ball that sits up nicely. Roy pulls it through mid-wicket off the front foot. Rockets away

13.1:

112/0

Faheem Ashraf to Roy, SIX, "thanks for coming," says Roy to the new bowler. Shimmies down the track does Roy and flat-bats this shortish ball over long-on. Easily put away

12.4:

104/0

Imad Wasim to Bairstow, SIX, 100 up for England! Imad Wasim gives a bit of air on this occasion, however he ended up bowling it in the slot. Bairstow gets down on a knee and smokes it over deep mid-wicket with a ferocious slog sweep

12.1:

96/0

Imad Wasim to Bairstow, FOUR, touch short, Bairstow rocks back and muscles the pull through mid-wicket. Superb placement

11.5:

90/0

Hasan Ali to Roy, FOUR, 14th ODI fifty for Jason Roy! Slower ball with a hint of width outside off, that's more than enough for the right-hander. Roy waits for the ball and guides it very fine and into the third man fence

11.3:

85/0

Hasan Ali to Roy, FOUR, not a muscle moved after the bat made contact with the ball. Hasan Ali offers a freebie well outside off. Too much room, asking to be punished. Roy stands tall and spanks it through the covers. That made a cracking sound and sped away to the fence

10.1:

80/0

Imad Wasim to Roy, SIX, swung away for a massive six! In-dart at 60.1mph, Roy clears his front leg, holds his shape and with a huge back-lift tonks it over long-on. A monstrous strike

9.4:

72/0

Hasan Ali to Bairstow, FOUR, thumped! Hasan Ali goes full and Bairstow plays an uppish on-drive without any major feet movement. Cries of 'catch it', and the mid-on fielder dived to his left. It bounced short of him and was also wide of him

9.2:

68/0

Hasan Ali to Bairstow, FOUR, waits for this slower short ball, paused and pulled it square of the man at 45 - short fine leg. It was an off-cutter bowled into the pitch and Bairstow did a good jon in putting it away

8.1:

59/0

Imad Wasim to Roy, SIX, what a way to greet the new bowler! Roy shows no respect. Moves leg-side, clears his front leg and biffs this flat ball over long-on's head

7.4:

52/0

Hasan Ali to Roy, FOUR, punished! Hasan Ali banged it in short and outside off, Roy picked the length early and hammered the pull through mid-wicket. A desperate dive from Imam in the deep, but in vain

7.1:

47/0

Hasan Ali to Roy, 1 run, oh, Shaheen Afridi... What have you done? Hasan Ali should have had a wicket off his very first ball, but a dolly has been put down at mid-off. Jason Roy walks forward and tries to go over mid-off, one of his pet shots but didn't time it well. Went straight to mid-off, where Afridi juggled but couldn't recover and hold onto it

6.4:

44/0

Junaid Khan to Bairstow, SIX, superbly picked up! Wasn't that short, but Bairstow picked the length early and used his bottom hand power to send it over deep square leg. Incredible hit

5.1:

32/0

Shaheen Afridi to Roy, SIX, there's the intent! Treats Shaheen Afridi with disdain. Gives the charge to the bowler by dancing down the target and in the process moves leg-side to free his arms. It was a short of length delivery and Roy bludgeoned it straight down the ground for a mighty six. Clean swing of the bat

5:

26/0

Junaid Khan to Bairstow, FOUR, 85.5mph, length ball on the pads and Bairstow won't miss out on it. Takes full toll of it, holds his balance and whips it through backward square leg

3:

17/0

Junaid Khan to Bairstow, FOUR, four to start the over, four to end the over and in between those were four dots. Junaid errs in line and bowls it too straight. Bairstow tickles it fine of short fine leg

2.1:

13/0

Junaid Khan to Bairstow, FOUR, well-timed shot. Seam-up ball on off, Bairstow closes his bat-face and turns it in front of square on the on-side. The timing was good and the placement was spot-on

1.5:

9/0

Shaheen Afridi to Roy, FOUR, shot! Afridi goes full and offers width. Roy doesn't need second invitation to put it away. Leans forward nicely and batters the off-drive to the left of mid-off. Don't bother running for those

1.4:

5/0

Shaheen Afridi to Roy, FOUR, another inside edge, this time it beats the inside edge and runs away for a boundary. Shortened length slightly outside off, Roy throws his arms with cemented feet. Gets a thick edge that evades the diving keeper to his left

49.5:

358/9

Willey to Hasan Ali, SIX, full toss on middle, Ali belts it over midwicket with enough power to clear the ropes. Pakistan ending with a flourish

49.4:

352/9

Willey to Hasan Ali, FOUR, that's brilliant from Hasan Ali, shuffling across and scooping this over backward square leg. Fine leg and square leg were inside the ring, and this was extremely well executed

49.2:

348/9

Willey to Shaheen Afridi, out Caught&Bowled!! Abandons the search for a yorker, bangs it in hard and foils Afridi on the pull. The top-edge spoons up to the right of Willey who goes across from his followthrough for a brilliant one-handed catch. Shaheen Afridi c and b Willey 7(4) [6s-1]

49.1:

348/8

Willey to Shaheen Afridi, SIX, just clears the straight boundary. Full in the slot from Willey, Afridi clears the front leg and swings through the line. His connection is good enough

49:

342/8

Tom Curran to Hasan Ali, SIX, Hasan Ali's got hold of this, he sure has. Overpitched from Curran, and Ali uses the long handle to deposit it many rows back over long-on

48.2:

335/8

Tom Curran to Faheem Ashraf, out Lbw!! England review a leg-before decision as Curran's yorker deflects off Ashraf's boot into the third man boundary. Impact could be outside leg stump, that's probably why it wasn't given by umpire Reifell. But no, ball-tracking has three reds. Useful review this, not only for getting rid of Ashraf, but also saving four runs. Faheem Ashraf lbw b Tom Curran 13(11) [4s-1]

46.5:

326/7

Woakes to Faheem Ashraf, FOUR, short of length at the body, Ashraf gets enough on the pull to beat Curran chasing from deep square leg

46.4:

322/7

Woakes to Imad Wasim, out Caught&Bowled!! Flaps it up in the air as this short ball climbs on him, easy return catch for Woakes. His fourth wicket of the day. Quickfire cameo from Wasim though. Imad Wasim c and b Woakes 22(12) [4s-4]

46.3:

322/6

Woakes to Imad Wasim, FOUR, full outside off, Wasim clears the front leg and crashes it through extra cover

45.4:

315/6

Tom Curran to Imad Wasim, FOUR, in the slot from Curran, a slower ball on top of it, and he's pumped down the ground. Wasim drills it really hard back over the bowler's head

45.2:

310/6

Tom Curran to Imam-ul-Haq, out Bowled!! Curran nails the yorker, and then nails off stump. Brings an end to a wonderful knock from Imam-ul-Haq, for which he'll get a good ovation around the ground. He had stepped to the leg-side to make some room, but was beaten for pace as this delivery just snuck through him as he stretched out to reach it. Imam-ul-Haq b Tom Curran 151(131) [4s-16 6s-1]

44.4:

308/5

Woakes to Imad Wasim, FOUR, short ball going across off, Wasim arches back and scythes it over point. Nearly went all the way, that's how well he connected with it

44.3:

304/5

Woakes to Imam-ul-Haq, 1 run, another slower delivery that's pulled out to deep midwicket. This single brings up Imam's 150

43.4:

299/5

Willey to Imad Wasim, FOUR, charges down and is responded with a ball that's shortened in length, but Wasim swings hard and ekes out an edge that flies over backward point

43.2:

294/5

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, full toss on leg, Imam flicks it past short fine leg and beats the dive of deep square leg too. Shoddy execution from Willey, missed the yorker by a long way

42.3:

287/5

Woakes to Asif Ali, out Caught by Roy!! Short of length outside off, Ali's idea is to go for a forehand smash over mid-off, but he's surprised by how quickly this skids onto him. Beaten for pace, he miscues it off the top-half and fails to clear Roy who takes a safe catch overhead. Asif Ali c Roy b Woakes 52(43) [4s-2 6s-3]

42.1:

286/4

Woakes to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, full toss outside off, deserves what it gets as Imam slaps it over backward point. Was close to being a no-ball as well

41:

274/4

Woakes to Asif Ali, 1 run, back of a length on leg, tucks it behind square for back-to-back fifties. He's hammering the door to Pakistan's World Cup squad

40.5:

273/4

Woakes to Asif Ali, SIX, another delivery halfway down the pitch from Woakes, but this is a slower one, and Ali is waiting on the back foot. Once it arrives, he nails the pull over deep midwicket

39.4:

262/4

Tom Curran to Asif Ali, SIX, way back into the stands from Asif Ali. Picked the bones out of this slower ball. Waited on it nicely and then smashed it through the line over long-on

39.2:

255/4

Tom Curran to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, overpitched on middle, superb wristwork from Imam to maneuvre it past short fine leg

37.1:

239/4

Tom Curran to Asif Ali, FOUR, not a great ball from Curran. Short of length, sat up for Ali who dismissed it from his presence. Very convincing pull shot in front of square

36.4:

233/4

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, Willey loses his line, strays down the leg-side and is helped away fine by Imad. Another boundary

36.3:

229/4

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, SIX, launched down the ground, over the long-on boundary. Pitched up in the slot, Imam loads up on the bottom hand and powers it through the line without losing his shape. Definitely get the sense he's putting his foot on the pedal now

35.4:

218/4

Tom Curran to Asif Ali, FOUR, this is glorious from Asif Ali. Half-volley at the stumps, and he just punches it over mid-on, quite deliberately chipping the ball over the infield

35.2:

213/4

Tom Curran to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, charges down and slaps this length ball over extra cover. Probably the time to open his shoulders after the hundred

34.4:

209/4

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, 1 run, sixth ODI hundred from just 27 matches for Imam-ul-Haq! Back of a length, slanted into middle and leg, he tucks it behind square - no worries. Off comes the helmet as he kisses the bat and does a sajda

34:

207/4

Plunkett to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, short of length delivery going down leg, really loose from Plunkett and he's punished for it as Imam swivels the pull past fine leg. Moves onto 99

32.3:

197/4

Moeen Ali to Asif Ali, SIX, tossed up on middle, Asif Ali steps dow the wicket and lofts it with the spin over long-on for six

30:

183/4

Plunkett to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, half-volley on the pads, Imam-ul-Haq flicks it away to deep square leg for four - beats Moeen Ali running across from fine leg

29.4:

179/4

Plunkett to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, short one outside off, Imam-ul-Haq shuffles across and drags it from outside off to the deep mid-wicket fence with a pull

28.3:

172/4

Denly to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, another full-toss, juicier this time, and he's finally taken full toll - gets on his knee and clubs the sweep down to deep mid-wicket for four

27.3:

162/4

Plunkett to Sarfaraz, out Caught by (sub)Jordan! Against the run of play, tries playing the pick-up shot to the incoming slower length ball, gets a top-edge towards fine leg, where the substitute fielder sets himself up under the ball and takes it comfortably in the end. A start from Sarfaraz, but he hasn't converted it once again. His torrid form continues. Sarfaraz c (sub)Jordan b Plunkett 27(34) [4s-2]

25.5:

155/3

Stokes to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, on the hips, Imam-ul-Haq shuffles across, hops, and runs his wrists through the whipped topspinning swat towards the fine leg fence for four

25.2:

148/3

Stokes to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, length delivery from round the wicket, Imam-ul-Haq has had enough - runs down the track and powers it through the long-off fence for four

25:

142/3

Tom Curran to Sarfaraz, FOUR, Sarfaraz breaks free! A length ball, out of the back of the hand, outside off-stump, Sarfaraz clears his front-leg and throws his weight behind that straight-batted flat loft over mid-on for four

21.4:

123/3

Stokes to Imam-ul-Haq, 1 run, 6th ODI fifty for Imam-ul-Haq - steers a good length delivery down towards third man with a late-cut for a single to get to the milestone

20.3:

116/3

Tom Curran to Sarfaraz, FOUR, short of length delivery bouncing steeply without a lot of width, Sarfaraz steers it lat eto the right of the 'keeper towards fine third man for four

19.1:

108/3

Stokes to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, round the wicket, short and wide, cant time the cut, gets an under-edge wide of the 'keeper, who dives across, gets a hand on it, but it still manages to travel to the third man boundary for four

16.4:

95/3

Tom Curran to Imam-ul-Haq, out Haris Sohail Run Out! Gone! A wicket against the run of play, and this looked like the most likely mode of dismissal. An excellent exhibition of football skills from Tom Curran. A back of a length delivery without any width on the off-stump, a tap on the head late whilst on the backfoot, and they decide to hurry across for a sharp single. Curran sprints across and kicks the ball onto the stumps at the striker's end, and the replays show that Haris Sohail has taken Curran's football skills for granted and hasn't stretched enough to reach the crease in time. The decision from the third umpire is OUT! Haris Sohail run out (Tom Curran) 41(41) [4s-7]

14.4:

88/2

Moeen Ali to Haris Sohail, FOUR, 56mph, full and outside off, allows the batter to free his arms. It was a loopy ball and Haris Sohail held his shape before lifting it over extra cover. Classy shot

13.4:

79/2

Plunkett to Haris Sohail, FOUR, fifty partnership! Wasn't a bad ball, fuller than a good length ball, Haris Sohail plays a free-flowing drive wide of mid-off. Off the sweet spot

13.2:

75/2

Plunkett to Haris Sohail, FOUR, straighter line, Haris Sohail walks towards off and clips it superbly through backward square leg. Allowed the ball to come to him and then closed his bat-face at the right moment. There were two men in the deep and he split the gap perfectly

9.3:

57/2

Willey to Haris Sohail, FOUR, another one in the arc - full from Willey and Haris Sohail has punished him. Opens his bat-face at the point of impact and middles the drive through the covers. Beautifully timed

9.1:

53/2

Willey to Haris Sohail, FOUR, overpitched delivery at 84.7mph, Haris Sohail walks across and hammers the drive through vacant extra cover. Glove-love follows

6.5:

46/2

Woakes to Haris Sohail, FOUR, off the middle! Back of a length with loads of room outside off, Haris Sohail goes back in his crease and punches it to the left of backward point. The outfield here is lightning quick

6.2:

42/2

Woakes to Haris Sohail, FOUR, the boundaries keep coming. Once again, exquisite timing. Back of a length delivery, Haris Sohail rides the bounce and opens his bat-face off the back foot. Just a push and that's sped away through point

5.4:

36/2

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, very full ball at 80.3mph, curled in a tad. Imam-ul-Haq brings his bat down in time and just pushed it to the right of the bowler. Yes, just a gentle jammy-push and that's enough to beat mid-off to his left

5.2:

32/2

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, shot! Overpitched ball 82.5mph, swung away, but Imam-ul-Haq takes full toll of it. A good press across and then he caresses the drive through extra cover. Once you find the gap, no need to run for shots like that

4.5:

27/2

Woakes to Babar Azam, out Bowled!! What a comeback! Two succesive boundaries and Woakes has the last laugh. A zippy, in-seamer at 84.3mph, Babar Azam is stuck in the crease and is late to bring his bat down. The ball decked in to beat the inside edge and crashed into the off-stump. Azam is shell-shocked. Second wicket for Woakes. Babar Azam b Woakes 15(11) [4s-3]

4.4:

27/1

Woakes to Babar Azam, FOUR, misfield and that's gone away for a boundary. Gentle good length ball and Babar Azam tucked it to the right of short mid-wicket. Stokes over-dived and let it go through him. Gave the chase after that, but the ball won the race

4.3:

23/1

Woakes to Babar Azam, FOUR, Woakes bangs one short at 83.2mph and Babar Azam dispatches it with disdain. He picked the length early, stayed firm in his crease and swivel-pulled it in front of square on the on-side. Right off the meat of the bat

3.5:

18/1

Willey to Babar Azam, FOUR, shot! Willey overpitches this inswinger at 83.4mph. Babar Azam shows his class. Just a gentle push straight down the ground and it sped to the fence in a jiffy. He poses for the photographs as well..

Willey to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, slightly too full, searching for the swing, did curl into the lefty. However, Imam-ul-Haq was well equipped to deal with that. Leant forward and push-drove it to the right of mid-on. Didn't over-hit and relied on timing. Past the dive of the fielder and it raced away

Woakes to Fakhar Zaman, out Caught by Root!! The centurion in the previous match has to depart in the very first over. Woakes is delighted. This is a big wicket and England know that. Short of a good length ball angled across the left-handed batsman. It was around off and hence Fakhar Zaman had to play at it. Poked his bat out in an attempt to fell for the ball. Gets a thick outside edge that goes to second slip at a nice, catch-able height. Root takes a juggling catch. Fakhar Zaman c Root b Woakes 2(4)

Woakes to Imam-ul-Haq, FOUR, edged and four! Streaky manner to get off the mark. Away-angler, Imam-ul-Haq sticks his bat well outside his body and gets a thick outside edge. Evades second slip to his left and races away to the third man fence. The fielder manning the fence was too square
