“It’s quite amazing,” former Pakistan skipper Rameez Raja tells ICC. “The fans had almost disowned the team after the India loss, but have rallied behind them. They can sense this rhythm and urgency from the last couple of matches.

“You get the best from Pakistan when their backs are against the wall, and I hope the momentum carries on. It’s like playing at home; it felt great in Birmingham and has been the same in Leeds.”

Shaheen Afridi, introduced after Afghanistan betrayed two more Imad Wasim, illustrated the growing frustration in Pakistan by throwing the stumps after Gulbadin Naib joined him. Annoyed as he was when the two rollovers were sandwiched by borders, he was really furious at the next ball, his crazy celebrations interrupted by the decision of referee Nigel Llong not to raise his finger.

The skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed showed his calm and led to a typical revival of Pakistan after the hammer blow in the West Indies to launch their campaign. He took his time and, five seconds from the end, proposed a review.

Quickly followed by Hashmatullah Shahidi, who the next ball tried to get a kick in the leg and saw his first spoon Imad in the middle of the game.

Shaheen’s hat-trick ball was a wet squib too far down the leg, but the same couldn’t be said of a match that captured the imagination like few ever have.
