Pakistan face England in the third T20I in Karachi on September 23. They won the second game by 10 wickets and are back level in the series. The first four games will be played in Karachi while the final three in Lahore. The series is a dress-rehearsal for both teams ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia.

Pakistan chased down 200 runs for victory without losing a wicket. Babar Azam (110*) and Mohammad Rizwan added 203 inside 19.3 overs. This was their fourth 150-plus stand in successful run-chases.

“The discussion was we can chase it down, we have done it before and that was the belief in the dressing room. The wicket always plays better under lights and it played better than what we expected. The discussions with Rizwan were to finish the match. I always had the belief (during the run of low scores) and you need that as a sportsman. The team always supported me and kept backing me” said Babar Azam who was also the Man of the Match.

Moeen Ali, the England stand-in skipper scored 55 off 23 balls and played his part in taking England to 199/5 batting first. He also had his say on the game. He thought his one over going for 21 runs cost them the game.

“It was a very good score. It was a good wicket in the end. We were bowling okay, but the momentum changed when I bowled my over and gave 21 runs. We played really well with the bat” said Ali.
