1.25am

England are trying to find their way back in and Billings finally gets the first big hit of his game. With the help of some clever running between the wickets and a Moeen Ali boundary to Shadab, England reach 100. ENG-104/4 after 12 overs.

1.20am

1.10am
Tide turning for Pakistan!
Banton departs just shy of a third consecutive half-century on 46!

This has been a damaging 16-run over for Pakistan as a no-ball is flicked away by Banton for yet another boundary to fine leg. Banton is unable to batter a boundary from the free hit, though, due to good work from the man at midwicket. ENG-43/2 after 5 overs

12.43am

Tremendous awareness from Fakhar inches from the deep midwicket boundary as he manages to keep inside the rope as he leaps to pouch Malan’s slog sweep. FOW-26/2

Tom Banton to England’s rescue

England have a young bruiser of their own in Banton. The Somerset man rolls out the reverse sweep here, picking up two boundaries off Imad with the stroke, albeit that one came close to being caught by the bloke at backward point.

11.53pm
Expensive from Gregory; goes for 14 runs

Gregory gets another go, but proves a costly move as his final over goes for 14. He bowls a no-ball – a high full toss – and while he limits the damage from the resulting free hit to just a single, Hafeez and Shadab both add boundaries later in the over. PAK-148/3 after 16 overs

11.46pm
Watch the delivery here!

11.44pm
Breakthrough for England!

Jordan comes back and breaks this partnership by doing what he does best, bowling full, straight, yorker-length on the stumps and flattering Haider’s off-peg. It brings to an end a simply superb debut knock from the 19-year-old. FOW-132/3

expanded thumbnail

11.40pm

Hafeez, who simply smashes six straight back down the ground – sweetly-struck, straight out of the middle of the bat – while he sweeps four more square. PAK-130/2 after 14 overs

11.37pm

Hafeez really does fancy that short boundary at midwicket from this end and, this time, he smashes Curran away for six over cow corner. PAK-117/2 after 13 overs

11.20pm
50 partnership for Ali-Hafeez

Image

11.18pm
That was close!

Sam Billings badly misjudges it at deep midwicket. Haider looks to target that area again, doesn’t quite get hold of it and so Billings edges in to claim the catch – only for the ball to end up sailing over him for four.

11.12pm
Another biggie from the young Haider Ali

Haider appears keen to give the Somerset seamer Lewis Gregory a rather unceremonious send-off, swatting his first ball for six over deep midwicket. PAK-66/2 after 8 overs

expanded thumbnail

11.06pm

Jordan gets on with his second over, and Ali (22*) adds to the first boundary of his career. Although the first one was a lucky inside edge, the second one was brilliantly placed to backward square leg. Consecutive. PAK are 47/2 after 6 overs.

10.57pm
Debutant Haider Ali puts up a good show!

Back-to-back boundaries for Haider off Jordan, although the first of them is a little fortuitous as he inside-edges one just past his stumps and away for four down to fine leg.

10.49pm
Babar Azam’s heroics are short-lived!

Curran goes straight through Pakistan’s captain and talisman is left stunned! FOW-32/2

Debutant Haider Ali announces himself to the world stage!

Pakistan’s 19-year-old batting prodigy Haider Ali – on his international debut – well and truly announces himself to the world by launching his second ball into the stands over deep midwicket, slog-sweeping wicket-taker Moeen.

England vs Pakistan 3rd T20I

After Eoin Morgan’s heroics sealed a thriller to put England 1-0 up in the series, the Three Lions would be hoping for yet another inspired display to wrap up the series.
