170/2(14.3 Overs)

Sam Curran is up for a chat. He says its been a good series and his first time in Pakistan so it is amazing playing in front of the crowd. Mentions that hopefully they can win the match and make it 3-3. Claims that the outfield is getting a bit wet and it will be an interesting chase.

However, once Babar Azam found his touch he never looked back from there. They lost Haris and Masood for cheap scores and the showed some glimpses of his quality but he too fell. After that Azam and Ahmed added 48 runs in which Ahmed scored 31 off just 21 balls before getting out. Azam then changed his gears and also got to 3000 T20I runs( in 81 innings) which is th

England, on the other started off well restricting the batters and picking up early wickets but they lost their way a bit in the middle overs when Azam and Ahmed were batting. However they pulled things back a bit at the death overs and restricted their opposition below 175. Sam Curran was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets and conceded just 26 runs.
