PAK VS ENG | Third T20I between Pakistan and England ends in a tie
Later today (Friday) at 7:30 pm, Babar Azam’s men will take the field at the National Stadium against England in the third game of their seven-match series, hoping to break a stalemate in the series. Babar and Mohammad Rizwan (88), coupled with some solid batting from the rest of the team, helped Pakistan win their opening game of the home series on Thursday, evening the score at 1-1.
For the first time in 17 years, England is touring Pakistan, and they have already taken the series lead thanks to a victory in the opening game despite a lackluster showing from the Men in Green with the bat and the ball. But in the second game, the Green Shirts’ confidence was bolstered by an undefeated 203-run partnership between their opening pair, and they were able to chase down 200 runs in just 19.3 overs.
“We blindly trust each other, we help each other and have great communication which is helping us,” Rizwan said about his partnership with the skipper
“There’re certain moments when we feel the pressure – these two moments are the start of the innings and when we are near the target. At the start, because we always aim to provide a solid start and near the target because we feel that we shouldn’t lose the wicket after coming so close,” Rizwan said.
“The momentum changed when I bowled my over. That really gave them the belief and after that, they were almost unstoppable,” Moeen said.
“I felt like it was under control for most of it. I genuinely feel my over lost the game for us. That was a gamble on my part.
“I went to try and get a wicket, almost buy a wicket. Obviously, it didn’t work and that’s when Pakistan really won the game.”
