England eased to a second comfortable victory in the NatWest Twenty20 series as they defeated Pakistan by six wickets after dismissing the tourists for just 89 in 18.4 overs – the lowest-ever total by any side in a Twenty20 match at The SWALEC Stadium. Mindful of the way the Cardiff wicket had assisted the spinners in the first contest, Pakistan opted to bat first and their game plan appeared to be centred on scoring a stack of early runs against the England seamers. But their scheme backfired as they nosedived to 22/4 in the fifth over as the Pakistan top order all perished to a range of expansive and reckless blows. Kamran Akmal skied a pull to mid-wicket before Mohammad Yousuf, who had already been dropped at backward point, swatted a short ball from Tim Bresnan straight to backward square-leg. In the next over, Shahzaib Hasan top-edged a hook against Stuart Broad into the wicket-keeper’s gloves, before four balls later, Broad claimed the prized scalp of Shahid Afridi who miscued a lavish drive and was caught at backward point. After a phase of quiet reconnaissance as England switched to spin, Umar Akmal twice deposited Graeme Swann into the stands at the River End for six, before he was bowled trying to repeat the stroke. Mohammad Hafeez, who had opted for more circumspect accumulation, ended his sequence of singles by cover-driving Michael Yardy for four in the spinner’s final over, before next over he was run out as Ryan Sidebottom made a smart pick-up and throw at mid-off. Two balls later, Fawad Alam was caught behind trying to work Swann behind square, and with the total on 56/7, it was left to Abdul Razzaq and Umar Gul to provide a late flourish. The latter drove Sidebottom for four, before flicking Broad over square-leg for six, whilst Razzaq also slashed Sidebottom to the cover point boundary before splicing a catch to short third man. Next ball, Umar Gul pulled Sidebottom straight to Ravi Bopara at backward square-leg before Bresnan ended the innings by yorking Shoaib Akhtar. With such a low total on the board, Pakistan needed a clutch of early wickets if they were to have any hope of winning, but Craig Kieswetter and Steve Davies made a breezy start with the former depositing Gul over the extra cover boundary for six, before savagely pulling him for four as well as drilling the seamer through extra cover as his opening over cost 19 runs. But in Shoaib’s second over, both openers departed to successive deliveries as Umar Akmal firstly held a catch at mid-wicket before next ball throwing down the stumps at the bowler’s end to run out Kieswetter. Bopara and Paul Collingwood then steadied the ship with the latter hoisting Shoaib for six over square-leg before bringing up the fifty by square cutting Saeed Ajmal for four. The spinner gained revenge in his next over as the England captain was caught at slip trying another nurdle, before Bopara, who had pulled a long hop from Afridi for four was trapped leg before by the visiting captain. But with only two dozen runs needed, Morgan struck a trio of boundaries, driving Hafeez through mid-off and mid-on, besides cover- driving Afridi, and it was left to Yardy to hit the winning runs with another flowing cover drive against Hafeez as England cantered home with six overs to spare.
