Sixth T20: Pakistan Set 170 Runs Target For England

LAHORE: Pakistan captain Babar Azam led the way for his side with a magnificent knock of 87 not out and powered his side to finish at a respectable 169/6 in the first inning of the sixth T20I against England.

Batting first on the invitation of England’s captain Moeen Ali, the hosts had an unwanted start to their inning as debutant Mohammad Haris fell cheaply after managing to score a mere seven.

Following the early halt, Shan Masood, too, could not settle things down as David Willey trapped him in legs for a duck and Pakistan, as a result, slipped to 15/2 in the fourth over.

Haider Ali then joined his captain Babar in the middle and attempted to anchor the inning as the pair added an important 47 runs for the third wicket before Haider miscued one while pulling a shorter delivery off Sam Curran and walked back to the pavilion in disgust after scoring 18.
