Usman Qadir took two wickets and Mohammad Hasnain had one wicket for Pakistan.
Chasing the target, inform openers- Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan struggled to score runs from the beginning as pacers- Reece Topley and Mark Wood bowled with real aggression. Both Topley and Wood played for the first time in the series. Wood returned to the team after a long time and got the all-important wicket of Babar in the third over.
Rizwan was also dismissed by Topley in the very next over and Pakistan’s sluggish middle-order failed again to chase a big target. Shan Masood tried from one end and stayed till the end but it was not enough for the hosts. Pakistan stopped at just 158 runs in 20 overs losing 8 wickets. Masood remained unbeaten on 65 runs off 40 balls.
England bowlers were really impressive on the day. Wood was the best bowler for the visitors with three wickets in 4 overs conceding just 24 runs while Adil Rashid took two wickets and Topley, Sam Curran had one.
