The final-over battle between Pakistan and England on Wednesday featured a few of standout performances (September 28). Pakistan was alarmed by Mark Wood’s blazing burst in one-over stints. The unwavering commitment of Mohammad Rizwan to keep the innings together.
The Pakistani spin three of Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, and Iftikhar Ahmed kept their composure while attempting to defend a target of 145 on a two-paced field. But in the end, it came down to the last over, which was bowled by Aamer Jamal, who was making his debut, and Moeen Ali, who had 14 to defend and was in fantastic form.
Jamal did a really decent job of executing his wide yorkers, and with the exception of one delivery that went for six, Pakistan was able to win the fifth T20I of the series by 6 runs and take a 3-2 lead.
Babar Azam employed six bowlers as Pakistan started to try and hold off 145. They had three options for tempo and three for spin. And it was because each of those six bowlers had a wicket that England was reduced to 85/6 in the 15th over.
