    They are flying. This may not be as close as I thought it was going to be.

    A quite magnificent performance, won by 10 wickets with 4 overs remaining.

    Sky are allowing Channel 4 to show the final live on Sunday, nice wee bonus for people.

    They've extended the window the game can be played to include Mon night Aus time which currently looks like it would be ok. It's probably better if it just rains properly on Sunday and they wait rather than a stop/start DLS farce type game.

    Here we go, the final. This should be a cracker, both teams in great form. Iím tilting towards Pakistan so I have probably just made England favourites now.

    Rizwan out, Curran bowling well.
    And Haris now in, he will be fearless.

    Great first ball from Rashid to send Haris packing. A key moment.

    Butler in some form with the bat. If they don't get him soon they are in trouble.

    Brook gone. This is superb stuff from Pakistan, the pressure has been slowly increasing for the past few overs.

    England just need one big over and it's game won.

    Not sure it's coming though so could be tight. You still think Pakistan need to bowl them out to win though.

    Ben Stokes does it again, he gets better and better.

    It's sometimes easy, because we live in such an ephemeral age, to lose sight of the sheer scale of hs achievements. If not already, he will be England's greatest ever all-rounder. It's not just about his compellong stats across all three formats, it is the stuff that is harder to measure - his presence on the field, his ability to make a breakthrough on a lethargic fourth day pitch with a ball that's 60 overs old and he's a bloody good fielder to boot.

    I had hoped for a Pakistan win, going into the match. When they shine they are a sheer, unadulterated joy to watch. Lots of credit to England though. Taking Babar's wicket was momentous and more than a bit lucky but they relly turned the screw on Pakistan in the second half of their innings. It wasn't a great total in the end but there was something in the pitch for Pakistan. I think any hope for them really faded when Afridi had to stop bowling.

    Well played England, white ball kings for now and they can be rightly very proud, but a real challenge awaits in defending their 50-over trophy in India next year!

    That was a real shame. It would've been some finish if he'd been able to bowl out his last 2 overs.
