But the pattern was gone in the fourth, dragging a slower ball from Avesh Khan back to his stumps to set off for the 18th. Jason Roy (27-for-26) also made a couple of big shots before pushing Malik back, while Salt (8) was also fooled by a change of pace, bowled by Harshal Patel (2-35).

Malan fired five sixes to go with six fours on his hugely enterprising strike, drawing heavy support from Livingstone (49th of 29), who lobbed the ball into the stands on four separate occasions.

Malan eventually went down, and Moeen two balls later, to Ravi Bishnoi (2-30) in the 17th, but Harry Brook (19-for-9) and Jordan (11-for-3), along with Livingstone, helped England over 200, posting an intimidating score.
