England Won By 5 Wickets | PAK Vs ENG
After 2010, this is England’s second T20 World Cup victory. With the ball, England played outstandingly, limiting Pakistan to 137/8. The English batting lineup has led by Sam Curran (3/12).
England was down to 45/3 in the 138-point chase before the powerplay. But Stokes (52*) once again produced in a crucial game to carry his team to victory.
Shaheen Afridi’s delivery crashed through England’s opener Alex Hales’ wickets in the opening over of the 138-run chase. Alongside captain Jos Buttler was Phil Salt. Young pacer Naseem Shah was attacked by the pair, including the captain, who ran him over for three fours in a row.
Haris Rauf intervened to send Salt back for ten off nine balls as the pair appeared to be forming a partnership. Rauf knocked down skipper Buttler for 26 out of 17 balls to take his 2nd wicket. England had 49/3 after 6 overs of the powerplay, with Harry Brook (4*) and Stokes (1*).
Shaheen Afridi’s withdrawal due to a knee injury gave England a huge advantage, though. With two boundaries off pacer Mohammad Wasim, Moeen reduced the margin to 20 runs in 22 balls.
On the final ball, he also scored a boundary, resulting in England being required to score twelve runs in the next 3 overs.
Ali & Stokes’ 48-run partnership collapsed after Wasim knocked the former’s stumps loose. At 19 runs in 13 balls, the left-brief hander’s vital cameo ended. Five of England’s batters were back in the hut for 132 runs when they needed 6 in 10 balls.
With a 4 in 47 balls, Stokes reached his 1st half-century in T20I cricket. The scores have equalized. England concluded their innings at 138/5 in 19 overs, the winning runs provided by Stokes, who was unbeaten at 52* from 49 balls.
Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, and Adil Rashid bowled great spells to limit Pakistan to 137/8 in the championship. Chris Jordan & Adil Rashid each got 2 wickets, while Sam Curran bowled a superb stretch and took 3. The most runs made for Pakistan were 38 by Shan Masood & 32 by captain Babar Azam.
Azam and Rizwan started on guard. Sam Curran won his team an important victory in the 5th over of the match when he dismissed Rizwan for 15 off 14.
Then Mohammad Haris walked out to bat & teamed up with captain Babar Azam. Adil Rashid struck in his 1st over and removed Haris after getting 8 points out of 12. Then Shan Masood, a left-handed batter, went to the plate.
England’s bowlers have kept Pakistan in check, who only gave 68 runs while taking two wickets in ten overs. However, Rashid misfired again in the eleventh of the innings, dismissing the well-positioned hitter Babar Azam for 32 off 28.
After being reintroduced to the attack, Stokes showed everyone why he is very famous by bowling Iftikhar Ahmed out for a six-ball duck.
After that, Sam Curran dealt Pakistan another knockout when he struck out well-positioned & powerful hitter Masood for 38 runs off 28 balls. Chris Jordan then entered the in the 17th over & removed Shadab for where Woakes took the easiest of catches.
Curran’s dismissal of Mohammad Nawaz shook Pakistan’s batting lineup once more. Jordan removed Mohammad Wasim Jr. for four off eight deliveries in the last over of the innings to help England reduce Pakistan to 137/8 in the 20-over match.
