All the updates from T20 WORLD CUP 2022
Iftikhar Ahmed, right-arm off break, comes into the attack
Shaheen is walking off with his head down and hands on his head. What a killer this is for him
15.1 Shaheen Afridi to Moeen Ali, no run, beaten. Oh Shaheen Afridi is struggling in his approach to the crease, limps but delivers a wide yorker and beats the bat
England this innings
Middle overs: 48/1
England hit just three boundaries post the Powerplay.
Shaheen Afridi [2.0-0-13-1] is back into the attack
41 off 30 is easily doable, but Afridi has two and he can suddenly get two in two!
14.6 Haris Rauf to Stokes, FOUR, the boundary they needed to ease some nerves. Slower delivery outside off stump, Stokes backs away and slaps it wide of mid-off to spoil the over for Haris Rauf. Top class stuff, wait for your moment and pounce from Stokes
14.5 Haris Rauf to Stokes, no run, beaten. A slog across the line to this fullish delivery, Stokes swings and misses. Rizwan puts out a let me appeal anyway and then tells Haris Rauf that he can’t hear anything with the noise from the crowd
Physio near Shaheen again
14.4 Haris Rauf to Moeen Ali, 1 run, good length delivery on the leg stump, Mo pushes to long-on
14.3 Haris Rauf to Stokes, 1 run, Stokes very open in his stance to Haris Rauf. Tries to smash it off the back foot, ball is sliced and just short of backward point
14.2 Haris Rauf to Stokes, 2 runs, full delivery, Stokes drives to deep cover, Stokes slips while trying to turn for the second but he has time to recover.
14.1 Haris Rauf to Stokes, no run, Stokes has a mighty swing and misses. Rizwan asks for caught behind. Does a ‘come on, how many times will they get lucky’ expression. Was a good length delivery that troubled Stokes there
Haris Rauf [2.0-0-10-2] is back into the attack
After 14 overs, Pakistan were 98/4, England are 89/4. The difference is England know what they have to get and have better batting depth. Pakistan need a couple of quick poles now. And Shaheen is back. Seems to be moving fine. He will give his 100% even if he is not
ENG: 89-4 after 14 overs
13.6 Naseem Shah to Stokes, 1 run, short of length delivery on the leg stump, Stokes punches to point for a quick single, throw to the bowler’s end but misses
13.5 Naseem Shah to Stokes, no run, full delivery, Stokes drives towards mid-off and doesn’t hit the gap
13.4 Naseem Shah to Stokes, no run, inside edge onto pad again, this time it looks to point as Stokes looks to defend
