Alex Hales powered England's breezy start while Phil Salt also peeled off a couple of boundaries. Barring a three-run opening over, England found the fence in all overs in the powerplay. There were two sixes as well – with Salt just about clearing the long-off boundary in a Mohammad Nawaz over while Hales edged a Hasnain delivery over the third-man fence. Hales and Salt weren't always in complete control of their shots but they managed to keep the scoreboard ticking with a quick-fire 42-run stand. Pakistan, however, came back well in the final over of the powerplay as Hales was bowled by Shahnawaz Dahani attempting a pull.
