ENG vs PAK T20I Series: In a dream contest of two teams showing back-to-back power-packed entertaining performances, we have England leveling the series 3-3 in the 6th T20I. Pakistan posted a score of 169 batting first. England chased the worthy score as fast as they could. The team scored 170 losing 2 in just 14.3 overs. Major credit to Phil Salt’s 88 of 41

Babar Batting like a dream- 1st Innings

A flawlessly planned and carried out Pakistani innings. They didn’t have their typical opening partnership, the surface was slow, and they lost early wickets. The message would have been to bat around Babar after they took their time during the powerplay. As Babar joyfully rotated strikes, Haider Ali and Iftikhar Ahmed made useful cameos by playing their shots in the middle overs. After reaching his fifty, Babar eventually began to speed, and Asif Ali and Nawaz also contributed. Pakistan scores 169 runs in its final two overs, exceeding the required total.

England Lions’ Chase

Phil Salt treated the Pakistani bowlers the same way, making it appear as though it were a backyard game. He scored fours and sixes just for fun because England was 82/1 and the game was over during the powerplay. In an innings that was adorned with seven fours and three sixes, Salt stayed to the very finish, smashing 87* off just 41 deliveries.

Ben Duckett and David Malan both performed fantastic supporting roles in this chase, with the latter sweeping and reverse sweeping to Pakistan’s dismay and the former scoring some perfect cover drives. England serves as a timely reminder of how deadly they can be in the shortest format, and to think that they have accomplished this without Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, or Liam Livingstone. putting an end to their critics’ claims that they lack the necessary skills for their chosen field.

ENG vs PAK T20I Series Analysis:

After two tense, nail-biting defences from Pakistan, England regains its chasing mojo and does it in grand fashion. They win with 33 balls remaining thanks to Phil Salt’s career-high 88 unbeaten. This sets up a Sunday night decider in Lahore. However, England’s pedal-to-the-metal strategy will rarely prove more effective than that. With all of the home attack going at more than 10 an over aside from Shadab Khan, who picked up a respectable 2 for 34. The dew is probably also due some credit, as batting seemed to get a lot easier as the game wore on.
