20th over: England 176-2 (Crawley 33, Duckett 39) Duckett injects life into the match with aggressive strokes against Campher, hitting a four, a two, and a straight drive for two. He is outperforming his teammate with his impressive batting skills.

19th over: England 165-2 (Crawley 33, Duckett 28) Mark Adair makes a remarkable comeback in this over, after initially conceding 18 runs in the first four balls of the game. He delivers a tightly controlled over, only allowing a single run. His figures have significantly improved from 2-0-31-0 to 5-0-48-0. The question now is, can he achieve a maiden over?

18th over: England 164-2 (Crawley 33, Duckett 27) Both Crawley and Duckett excel at the pull shot. Campher, unable to execute a half-tracker, sets up Duckett to hit another four. After a slow start, Duckett has scored 20 runs off his last 12 balls.

17th over: England 156-2 (Crawley 31, Duckett 21) Crawley and Duckett complement each other well, with their contrasting batting styles. They alternate between attacking the bowlers. Duckett faces Adair and hits a powerful shot to midwicket for a four. The match in Bristol began with a bang, but this partnership has slowed the pace. However, the game is still in England’s favor.

Drinks: England is in control.

16th over: England 147-2 (Crawley 29, Duckett 15) Stirling replaces McCarthy with Campher, the fifth seamer. Campher does a commendable job by restricting the batsmen to three singles.

15th over: England 144-2 (Crawley 27, Duckett 14) Young takes a break, and Adair returns to the attack. Duckett takes advantage of the opportunity, hitting a four off his 20th ball. It was a low pull shot, more like a fly-swat, but it was well placed to the left of deep square. He also gets away with a top-edged pull shot as the ball loops over the wicket-keeper.

14th over: England 136-2 (Crawley 26, Duckett 7) Ben Duckett is still finding his rhythm, but Zak Crawley has found his groove. Crawley hits McCarthy for a four over mid-on, followed by a dreamy straight drive for four more. He tops it off with a straight six. The carnage has resumed.

13th over: England 120-2 (Crawley 11, Duckett 6) Young continues to impress, trying to prevent Salt from being the man of the match. A graphic displays the amount of seam movement he has achieved, 1.2 degrees, which has Mark Butcher applauding his length. Young’s figures are commendable, with 5-0-18-2, while his teammates have yet to take a wicket and have conceded 100 runs.

12th over: England 118-2 (Crawley 10, Duckett 5) Crawley, known for his elegance, demonstrates his power by hitting a mistimed straight drive for a four. McCarthy concedes eight runs in the over, and it seems that these two batsmen are getting comfortable.

11th over: England 110-2 (Crawley 4, Duckett 3) In cricket, no matter the length of the match, there will always be moments of unpredictability. After a fiery start, the bowlers suddenly gain the upper hand. This partnership is progressing slowly, with only six runs scored off 14 balls. The pace has shifted dramatically from the fast-paced action of the 2020s to the more measured play of the 1970s.

10th over: England 107-2 (Crawley 2, Duckett 2) McCarthy bowls a ball that swings back into Crawley, but it’s too much to get the LBW. Despite that, the wickets have halted England’s scoring rate. Stirling places two slips for Duckett, who plays his usual attacking shots but fails to find the gaps in the field. Only three runs come off the over. Nevertheless, England has equaled its best 10-over score, which is an achievement in itself.

9th over: England 104-2 (Crawley 2, Duckett 0) England’s openers Salt and Jacks have been dismissed, and the first-choice Test openers, Crawley and Duckett, take their place. It seems that the format of the game doesn’t matter to these players, as they seamlessly transition from white ball to red ball cricket. Craig Young has been the standout bowler of this match, taking two wickets for 13 runs off three overs, while the other three bowlers have yet to take a wicket and have conceded 90 runs off six overs.

8th over: England 100-1 (Jacks 35, Crawley 2) McCarthy takes the catch to dismiss Salt calmly and is rewarded with the opportunity to bowl. His first delivery is a half-volley outside off stump, which Jacks takes full advantage of by hitting it for a six! He follows it up with a four over mid-on. Meanwhile, Crawley plays himself in with a couple of dot balls before elegantly stroking the ball for two runs. The hundred runs mark is reached with two overs of the Powerplay remaining.

7th over: England 87-1 (Jacks 24, Crawley 0) Salt achieves his half-century off just 22 balls, breaking the record for the fastest 50 in England ODI history. His batting has been exceptional, with seven boundaries and three sixes. Jacks also joins the scoring spree and hits a pull shot for six into someone’s garden. The projected score for England is 700, a staggering feat.

6th over: England 84-0 (Salt 60, Jacks 22) The commentators discuss the movement in the air, which makes one wonder how many runs England would have scored if the ball was behaving more predictably. Salt confidently plays a clip for four and then hits a powerful pull shot for a six into the stands. He completes his fifty off just 22 balls, breaking a record for England’s fastest 50 in ODI history. Is there any end to Salt’s assault? Apparently not, as he sweeps Little for another six off his knees. The projected score for England is displayed on the screen: 700 runs. It may seem unbelievable, but it’s not a typo.

5th over: England 65-0 (Salt 42, Jacks 22) Paul Stirling introduces Craig Young to the bowling attack, hoping to slow down England’s run rate. Young restricts the batsmen and concedes only one run per ball. His performance is commendable and succeeds in curbing England’s scoring spree.

Salt reaches 50 off 22 balls!

4th over: England 60-0 (Salt 39, Jacks 19) Jacks refuses to play second fiddle and hits a magnificent six off Little’s first ball. He follows it up with another six, this time using his pull shot. Salt sticks to his batting style and hits a straight drive for four. Little induces a top edge, but it lands safely at short fine leg, much to Jacks’ relief. Salt adds another four to his impressive score. A remarkable 23
