Pakistan defeated England in the 5th T20I by 6 runs

Pakistan defeated England in the 5th T20I by 6 runs in a nail-biter match. Now Pakistan leads the 7-match series by 3-2. Debutant Amir Jamal bowled the excellent last over and didn’t allow Moeen to score 15 runs.

Lahore witnessed a thrilling finish in the 5th T20I between Pakistan and England. Mohammad Rizwan made 63 runs and gives Pakistan a fighting total, debutant Aamer Jamal holds nerve at the death.

Overview

Pakistan was offered the chance to bat first for the second straight game, scraped to what seemed to be a low total, and had their bowlers save them.

After being dismissed for 145 in 18.5 overs, the home team turned the tables on England with the bat, taking three wickets in the powerplay before applying pressure with the spin of Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan.

Moeen Ali, who finished with an undefeated 51 off 36, nearly stole the victory with a magnificent lone hand, but debutant Aamer Jamal just about held his nerve, earning Pakistan a six-run victory and a 3-2 series lead.
