Babar Azam slashes only to pick out third man

If Will Jacks gave England the desired start with his quickfire knock of 40, it was the partnership between the left-right combination of Ben Duckett and Harry Brook that took the game away from Pakistan’s grasp. Shahnawaz Dahani proved to be really expensive as the pacer conceded more than 60 runs in 4 overs – and that helped England post a total in excess of 200. Usman Qadir picked up a couple of wickets, but even he conceded close to 50 runs in his 4 overs.

Pakistan chased 200 last night without breaking a sweat, but they’ve lost Babar Azam early in the massive 222-run chase.
