BALL BY BALL
A D Villiers
14.3 - A Phehlukwayo to J Bairstow
That will do it for England, they TAKE A 1-0 LEAD IN THE 3-MATCH SERIES! A touch ahead of a length outside off, Bairstow looks to push it on the off side but gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball rolls on the off side beside the pitch and Hales takes off for a quick single and completes it as well. Then pumps his fist in delight as ENGLAND WIN BY 9 WICKETS!
14.2 - A Phehlukwayo to J Bairstow
Banged in short outside off, JB lets it sail through to the keeper.
14.1 - A Phehlukwayo to J Bairstow
FOUR! Bairstow is in golden form! Short ball around off. There isn't much room on offer and Bairstow gets under it, watches the ball till the last moment and ramps it over the vacant slip cordon for a boundary. England just a run away from victory.
Ov 14: 2 0 4 0 2 1 ( 9 Runs )

Beaten! Quicker one, sliding away, Bairstow swings his bat but misses.
13.3 - T Shamsi to J Bairstow

13.2 - T Shamsi to J Bairstow
Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
13.1 - T Shamsi to J Bairstow
Bairstow works it through square leg. He is quick and comes back for the second. Also the bad bounce in front of the keeper from the throw from the deep makes things easy for him.
