    England just look like they are feeling their way. The pitch might be doing something.

  2. Manceyy: Always electric to watch Mohammad Amir bowl.

  3. Watch: Bairstow out caught and bowled for two

    This is why Jonny is agitated.

    Mohammad Amir the new bowler and Malan confident to take a step down the wicket at 84mph. The left-hander soon collects two into the leg side before flicking one just short of the deep square leg fielder. Bairstow still biting his nails on the balcony in agitated fashion.

  5. Paul Richards: I want Tom Banton’s nickname to be Pato otherwise what’s the point?

    I have to admit I didn’t understand that reference.

  6. Eng 15-1

    Banton collects three more with a top-edged sweep at Imad. Most of the players in sleeveless sweaters and undershirts out there in the cool conditions. Bairstow biting his nails on the balcony having gone for two in the first over.

    That was a regulation first slip catch. It was a comfortable height. You can see Iftikhar looking at his hands thinking “how did I drop that?”.

  8. Banton dropped on 5

    Eng 7-1

    The first boundary as Banton delicately glances Shaheen to the fine leg fence. Then he gets a life as a routine edge is spilled at slip.

    It’s a good start from Pakistan but England bat deep.

  10. Eng 3-1

    Good pace and bounce from Shaheen at 87mph and Banton, in his sleeveless sweater, cannot get it away. Pakistan bring in a slip.

  11. Chris Mitchell: Am I the only one who thinks this England T20 side has got 90 all out written all over it?!?

  12. Eng 3-1

    Left-hander Dawid Malan is the new batsman as England look to post a strong total having been asked to bat first in the overcast conditions. Pace now from Shaheen at the Jimmy Anderson End

    Jonny Bairstow hit that hard. He tried to get everything on it. Good catch. It will sting. It’s a good wicket for Pakistan. It is always good to get one of the big guys out early.

  14. WICKET

    Bairstow c&b Imad 2 (Eng 3-1)

    A wicket in the first over. Imad Wasim strikes with his fifth delivery and Pakistan have the breakthrough. It was firmly hit by Bairstow but sadly for him straight into the safe hands of the bowler, who pouches a neat low catch.

    It is always tricky to know what a good score is. It will be difficult to find a rhythm and a tempo. I would like to bowl first to get into the game.

  16. Banton off the mark first up with a single into the leg side.

  17. Post update

    Just four T20i’s for Banton so far and he has a best of 31. He has taken guard and will face the left-arm spin of Imad Wasim first up.

  18. Post update

    A big chance for Tom Banton at the top of the order tonight then. The 21-year-old Somerset batsman struck his maiden ODI fifty in the final match of the Ireland series earlier this month, but has had a lean run in first-class matches of late, scoring 18, 2 and 13.

    I went out to dinner last night to celebrate which was nice.
