England needed 26 off the final 12 balls under the floodlights in front of a capacity crowd of 23,500.

Buttler then produced his trademark “ramp” shot for a six off Ian Butler, but missed three balls later with the same stroke and was run out after Latham — who did not take his gloves off — hit the bowler’s end stumps with an underarm throw.

England needed 16 off the final over, bowled by Corey Anderson.

Ben Stokes promptly hoisted Anderson for a huge leg-side six to make the target 10 off five balls, only for the bowler to hold his nerve.
