Pakistan Win By 3 Runs In Dramatic Finish At Karachi
September 26, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
In a thrilling match on Sunday in Karachi, Pakistan defeated England by three runs. After losing their top three, England’s 168-point chase never really got underway. However, Haris Rauf took two wickets in as many balls to leave Adil Rashid and Reece Topley needing four runs from the last over after Liam Dawson hit 24 from an over to push his team close to victory. They were unable to complete the task, though, and the hosts tied the series at 2-2.
The series’ next game will be played in Lahore with the score currently tied at 2-2 between the two sides (September 28, 30 and October 2).
At the National Stadium in Karachi on Sunday, England captain Moeen Ali called the toss and chose to put Pakistan in to bat.
Pakistan was given the opportunity to bat first but was only given a goal of 167 runs, which by all accounts should have been simple for an English team to reach after setting a massive 222-run total in the previous game.
Haris Rauf (3-32) Mohammad Hasnain (2-40) and Mohammad Wasim (1-30) pressured the English side with their speed, while spinners Mohammad Nawaz (3-35) and Mohammad Iftikhar (0-23) limited the run rate even as the Pakistani batters struggled to find their feet.
Pakistan played in the 200th T20 game, becoming the first side to do so.
From the previous game, England made three adjustments. While Olly Stone received his opportunity to play in an international T20 match, Alex Hales and David Willey entered the lineup.
They took the place of Mark Wood, Sam Curran, and David Malan.
In order to bring Asif Ali and Naseem Shah, Pakistan left aside the unhealthy Haider Ali and Shahnawaz Dahani.
