142/8(20 Overs)

... The Chase ...

Right then,

Jos Buttler is up for a chat. He says we played well and Brook has been great. Adds that they performed consistently well and it is a great problem to see all players performing well and we have few more players joining us in Australia. Tells that he will get into action in Aistralia. The dew will play a huge role and hope that we can defend this.

Pakistan will be very disappointed with their bowling effort. They would have preferred to restrict England way less than this. They came back well after a poor start sending both the openers back in the same over but they couldn't continue the momentum. Mohammad Rizwan showed lightning quick hands to dismiss Duckett, but Babar Azam dropped both Harry Brook and Dawid Malan which cost them dearly. Mohammad Wasim also dropped Malan. However, Haris Rauf was the pick of their bowlers who conc

The English batters picked up from where they left off in the last game. They continued their attacking approach and every batter contributed with some quick runs. They started off well with Alex Hales and Philip Salt but lost both the openers in one over just before the Powerplay. However, after that Dawid Malan and Ben Duckett built a solid partnership of 62 runs before Duckett got out on 30 off just 19 balls. Then Harry Brook came in and added another 108 runs to the total with Malan. Da

England have put on another scintillating batting performance and have posted a huge total of 209 runs in this deciding game. Pakistan will have to break the record of the highest total chased in Lahore to win the game and the series which is going to be a tough task.

Mohammad Wasim to Dawid Malan, Mohammad Wasim gets the yorker in on middle, Dawid Malan is able to flick it away in front of deep mid-wicket for a couple of runs. England finish with 209/3 on the board!

Mohammad Wasim to Harry Brook, Length ball, angling down leg, Brook looks to pull but gets an edge and it goes off the pads towards short fine leg. They scamper through for one.

Mohammad Wasim to Harry Brook, ! As easy as stealing candy from a baby! Slower one, bowled in the slot and Harry Brook just clears the front leg and thumps it straight down the ground for a huge hit. 

Mohammad Wasim to Dawid Malan, Wasim gets this one in the blockhole outside off. Malan squeezes it down to short third man for a quick run. The 200 comes up for England as well.

Mohammad Wasim (3-0-41-0) to bowl the last over. He will be low on confidence after the dropped catch in the previous over and this could work in favour of England.

Mohammad Wasim to Dawid Malan, ! Full and wide, this is sliced away past the fielder at backward point for a boundary. 10 off the first 2 deliveries.

Mohammad Wasim to Dawid Malan, ! Outta here! Mohammad Wasim's forgetful game keeps on getting worse. This is in the slot and around middle. Dawid Malan stays deep and launches it high and handsome over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie.

Haris Rauf to Harry Brook, Banged in short and at the body, Harry Brook looks to pull but one hand goes off the handle and the ball is lofted towards deep mid-wicket. There is a slight fumble in the deep and they come back for the second with ease.

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, Back of a length, around off, this is pulled off the back foot towards deep mid-wicket for a run.

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, Good change-up! Slower one, on a fullish length and angling across. Malan looks to stay deep and swing it away but is well beaten.

Haris Rauf to Harry Brook, Excellent delivery! A yorker now, tailing into the pads, Harry Brook gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball goes onto the off side and a single is taken.

A review is taken for LBW by Babar Azam. Ball Tracking shows that it is pitching outside leg and the original decision of not out remains. 

Haris Rauf (3-0-18-0) to bowl the penultimate over.

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, NOT ! Dawid Malan survives and it will just be a leg bye. This is fuller and quicker, angling into the pads. Malan looks to flick but misses. The ball hits the pads and rolls onto the leg side. They cross but there is a loud appeal. The umpire turns it down but Babar Azam reviews it. Nothing on UltraEdge and Ball Tracking shows that it is pitching outside the leg stump.

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, ! Haris Rauf cannot believe it as another chance is dropped off his bowling. Length ball on middle, Dawid Malan goes for the big shot but ends up hitting it a mile high in the air and towards deep mid-wicket. Mohammad Wasim comes in from the deep and settles under it but ends up spilling it. Two taken.

Mohammad Hasnain to Dawid Malan, Just a single this time but the damage was already done. Another short one, it is the cutter and around middle. Malan pulls it away behind square on the leg side for one.

Mohammad Hasnain to Dawid Malan, ! BAM! Short and over leg stump, Dawid Malan is ready for it and he hooks it away powerfully over the square leg fence for a biggie.

Mohammad Hasnain replaces Haris Rauf. He has conceded 18 runs in his three overs and picked up a wicket.

Mohammad Hasnain to Dawid Malan, Ooh, that must have hurt and Dawid Malan is down. This is banged in by Hasnain, slower and around leg stump. Malan is early in his pull shot and the ball goes off the gloves and straight into the ribs. Hope he is fine.

Mohammad Wasim to Harry Brook, ! Wasim errs in line and length as well and Harry Brook makes full use of it. This is a half-volley around the pads, Brook uses his wrists and flicks it all the way over the square leg fence for a maximum.

Mohammad Wasim to Harry Brook, Short of a length and around the body, Brook muscles it firmly towards wide long on and races back for the second.

Mohammad Wasim to Harry Brook, Slower one, on a hard length and over middle and leg. Harry Brook backs away and is undone by the lack of pace.

Mohammad Wasim to Dawid Malan, Very full and at the toes, clipped away towards deep square leg for one. And, that will be FIFTY for Dawid Malan, a solid knock from him but he will know that the job is not done yet.

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, Good fielding! Good length, outside off, this is slapped away towards backward point for a run.

Haris Rauf to Harry Brook, ! The skipper Babar Azam has dropped an absolute sitter. Nice change-up by Haris Rauf, slower and pitched up around off. Harry Brook goes for the big shot down the ground but is way too early in the swing. The ball is skied high and around mid off. Azam settles under it and is a bit too casual as the ball pops in and out of his hands. Single taken. How costly could this prove to be for Pakistan?

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, Fuller this time, around 146 clicks and outside off. Dawid Malan looks to go over mid off but ends up dragging it down to long on. Just the single then.

Haris Rauf to Dawid Malan, On the shorter side and around the hips, Malan looks to flick it away but fails to do so.

Haris Rauf is back on. He has conceded 13 runs in his two overs.

Mohammad Hasnain to Harry Brook, Short, outside off. Harry Brook makes room for himself and Mohammad Hasnain bowls wide of off.

Mohammad Hasnain to Dawid Malan, Short, onto leg stump. Dawid Malan ducks it and let it go through to the keeper.

Drinks! England have already crossed the 100-run mark in 10 overs and they are scoring at a good rate despite losing three wickets.

TOSS - The coin goes up and Babar Azam calls it right. Pakistan have elected to BOWL first.

England will féel that they have the chance to win the series from here on touring Pakistan after 16 years, and they will try and make this tour memorable and this will also boost their energy before the World Cup. Their batting and bowling both have been on par which was expected due to all the chopping and changing of players. However, their batters were on song in the last game and they will look to replicate that here. . Both teams will give their all to win the series and finish on a

... The Chase ...

Right then,

Jos Buttler is up for a chat. He says we played well and Brook has been great. Adds that they performed consistently well and it is a great problem to see all players performing well and we have few more players joining us in Australia. Tells that he will get into action in Aistralia. The dew will play a huge role and hope that we can defend this.

Pakistan will be very disappointed with their bowling effort. They would have preferred to restrict England way less than this. They came back well after a poor start sending both the openers back in the same over but they couldn't continue the momentum. Mohammad Rizwan showed lightning quick hands to dismiss Duckett, but Babar Azam dropped both Harry Brook and Dawid Malan which cost them dearly. Mohammad Wasim also dropped Malan.
