Shadab’s direct-hit spells the end of Salt

Ben Duckett and Dawid Malan are making sure that England stay on top against Pakistan in the deciding seventh and final T20I. Philip Salt helped England get off to a flyer but the hosts clawed their way back by dismissing both openers in short order. While Alex Hales was pinned leg-before-wicket by Mohammad Hasnain, Phil Salt ran blindly for a run and lost his wicket upon returning to the non-striker’s end after taking note of Malan’s reluctance. Shadab Khan lobbed the ball to inflict a direct hit.
