• Highlights: Pakistan edge England in thriller

    Pakistan finally managed to win on English soil after beating England in a nail-biting third T20I at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

    The visitors batted first and thanks to an unbeaten 86 off 52 deliveries by Mohammed Hafeez, they were able to post 190-4 in their 20 overs.

    In response, England slumped to 69-4 but an excellent recovery by Moeen Ali, who smashed 61 off 33, ensured the game went down to the wire.

    England required a rather impossible 12 off the final two deliveries of the match but when Tom Curran struck a massive six off Haris Rauf’s bowling the pressure was on Pakistan to see out the match off the final ball.
