The tourists batted first and finished on 172-8, with James Vince top-scoring with 38, and captain Jos Buttler hitting 33. Pakistan captain, Shahid Afridi, had the host’s best bowling figures with 3-15, which also made him the world’s highest wicket-taker in international T20’s on 86. When he then made his way to the crease, his side looked out of the contest, needing 53 runs off 20 deliveries. However, Afridi made a fight of it, scoring 24 off 8.
