139/7(20 Overs)

We are back.

...THE CHASE....

Now the target is not a big one, the wicket is a little tricky but with the dew setting in, it could be better to bat on in the second half. Pakistan need early wickets and England know a couple of good partnerships can do the job for them. Who will come out on top? Stay tuned as we will find out after the break.

For Pakistan, it was all about Rizwan. Had he not played that knock, they would have well ended with a score below 100. However, there were far too many wickets which were gifted. Especially the two run outs and a few of the batters who played rash shots. Overall, it was a very under par performance with the bat by Pakistan.

End of an excellent performance from England with the ball and they are well and truly on top at the moment! Right from the word go, their bowlers were on the mark and made excellent use of the conditions. They seemed to have bowled with a plan, they executed the short balls really well and it worked wonders for them. The pacers were the ones who did the job, all of them got a wicket apart from Rashid. Wood was the pick but he was well supported by the rest.

Chris Woakes to Haris Rauf, ! TAKEN! Woakes gets his revenge and his first! Rauf walks back after that biggie and Pakistan END WITH 145! Full and on off, seems like a slower one. Rauf is early into the slog. It goes off the toe-end, high up in the air towards deep mid-wicket. Sam Curran takes it nicely.

Chris Woakes to Haris Rauf, ! That is nailed! A welcome biggie and Pakistan are closing onto the 150-run mark! Shorter and on middle, Rauf stays back and pulls it over the mid-wicket fence. Can they get a couple more in the 7 balls left?

Chris Woakes to Mohammad Wasim, Length and on off, Wasim guides it throught point and takes one.

Chris Woakes to Mohammad Wasim, ! SHOT! That shot probably just indicates, the wicket is getting easier. Length and on off, Wasim stands tall and pushes it past the fielder at mid off and into the fence.

Sam Curran to Mohammad Rizwan, ! TAKEN! Straight to the man! Rizwan is out on a full toss. He will be gutted with himself. This is on the pads, Rizwan clips it but straight to fine leg. Adil Rashid takes it. He will feel a little unfortunate but he just could not get the elevation he wanted. A lovely innings by Rizwan, he was the lone warrior for Pakistan but they needed him to continue.

Sam Curran to Mohammad Wasim, Another short one, this is pulled through square leg for another run. Rizwan comes back on strike.

Adil Rashid to Shadab Khan, ! RUN OUT! This is suicidal! Just poor from Pakistan! Tw run outs in the last 5 balls. They are seven down now! This is tossed up on off, it is pushed through covers. Rizwan wants two, he completes one and goes for it. The fielder runs in and fires it to the keeper. It is an excellent throw, right beside the stumps. Salt whips the bails off. It is taken upstairs. Yet again the dive does not save the batter.

Adil Rashid to Shadab Khan, ! Over the fence! This is in the slot. Full and on off, it is lofted over the long off fence for a biggie. Excellent way to get off the mark.

Adil Rashid to Mohammad Rizwan, Flatter and on off, Rizwan chops it towards cover. There is hesitation but the run is taken eventually.

Adil Rashid to Mohammad Rizwan, ! Lovely stroke! This is tossed up outside off, he gets on top of the bounce and hits it through covers for a boundary.

Mark Wood to Mohammad Nawaz, ! Nawaz is well short! That is so casual from the left-hander and brilliant from Moeen! Two wickets in the over and England are well and truly on top now! On off, Nawaz looks to drop and run. He casually takes a few steps down the wicket but is sent back by Rizwan. He is slow to turn. Moeen gets to the ball from overs. Nawaz realises he is in trouble. He then looks to get back in with a dive. It is a direct hit which is taken upstairs. Replays show that the

TOSS - ENGLAND HAVE WON THE TOSS AND OPTED TO FIELD!

Jos Buttler is still injured but his job as the skipper has been done decently by Moeen Ali. Still, they are missing Buttler, the batter as England could have chased down the target in the last match and could have come in this match with an upper hand. That being said, both teams are trying all the possibilities as they gear up for the upcoming World Cup. Pakistan are mostly relying on their opening stand to give the perfect start while for England, the inexperienced middle order is doing a g
