An exhibition of fearless batting followed by a clinical and disciplined bowling performance helped England record a thumping 67-run victory over Pakistan in the deciding T20I of the seven-match series on Sunday, October 2 at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
Pakistan soon slumped to 33 for 3 inside the power play and despite a fighting half-century from Shan Masood, they could not recover from the batting collapse or come close to the target.
Khushdil Shah, with 25-ball 27, and Iftikhar Ahmed, with 16-ball 19 were the other two batters, who could score in double digits alongside Shan Masood as Pakistan finished off with 142 runs for the loss of 8 wickets at the end of the 20 overs.
For England, Chris Woakes starred with the ball as he bagged a sensational three-wicket haul. He was well followed by David Willey, who got two to his name. Sam Curran, Reece Topley, and Adil Rashid were among the wickets as well.
