That's it from me here. But there's another game on tonight and it is between India and Bangladesh. So don't forget to catch that.
...
For his all-round performance, Moeen Ali is the Man of the Match.
...
The early loss of Shahzad was crucial but the flurry of wickets to the spinners meant it was always going to be too difficult. In the end it was Hamza's last over, which went for 25 runs that was the big difference between the two sides.
...
19.6 Stokes to Shafaq, FOUR, that was dull and driven past cover for a boundary but England win by 15 runs.

19.3 Stokes to Shafaq, no run, in the slot and excellent fielding from Buttler ensures the inside-edge doesn't go for four.
...
19.2 Stokes to Shafaq, no run, short ball and that drops harmlessly into the leg side but the crucial thing is he is still on stirke.
...
There is a kit at mid-wicket and Stokes is stopped as he is ready to deliver. The umpires gives the kite to Billings.

18.6 Jordan to Shafaq, 1 run, full toss and drilled on the bounce to Stokes at long-on.

Shapoor Zadran comes to the crease but it will be Shafaq on strike.
...
18.1 Jordan to Shafaq, RUN-OUT, that was a run-out in slow-motion and England are a wicket away from victory. Drilled to mid-wicket and the fielder threw the ball to Jordan but he missed the ball but the batsman was so far behind that he had another chance and whipped the bails off this time.
...
35 needed off the last two overs.
...
