    FOUR! Aftab Alam to Shoaib Malik. Half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, past fine leg for 4 runs. That's going for four and Malik has done it! He's won it for Pakistan! Went for another yorker and it was on the pads and Malik got it away behind square. What a match! Aftab is in tears, he feels he could have won it for Afghanistan but it's the man with the old head on his shoulders who saw Pakistan home. A fantastic game of cricket that was in the balance right up to the end. Pakistan will be mightily relieved, there's every chance that the winner of this match will meet India in the final. Afghanistan will surely feel that that was a game they could have won, but experiences like this will go a long way to improving them as a side. That's all from Abu Dhabi after what has been an exhilarating one day international, Pakistan off to a winning start. Until next time, goodnight.

    SIX! Aftab Alam to Shoaib Malik. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs. That was NOT the ball to bowl. He bowled a fantastic yorker and follwed it up with a slower ball half way down and Malik was waiting for it.

    Rashid Khan to Hasan Ali. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mohammadi. Twice Hasan Ali has a swing and a miss and that's the over. Just ten more runs required now for Pakistan and Malik is on strike. The debutant Shaheen Afridi is the mext man in...

    OUT! Bowled. Rashid Khan to Mohammad Nawaz. Leg spinner back of a length, to leg on the front foot Slog, missed to. Bowled him! Straight through as Nawaz goes for a slog to the legside. Another wicket for Rashid Khan and the crowd go wild. It's another dot ball and it brings another new batsman to the crease in a high pressure scenario. How do Pakistan play these next three balls?

    OUT! Bowled. Gulbadin Naib to Sarfraz Ahmed. Slower ball full toss, middle stump backing away cutting, missed to. Bowled! Sarfraz has missed a full toss! Trying to give himself room with both men square on the offside up in the ring. It was a slower ball though and once he was no longer in line with the ball it became difficult to hit. It cannoned into middle stump and another key moment in this game!
