England were on top of their game with both bat and ball as they registered a comprehensive win in the seventh T20I at Lahore to clinch a fiercely-contested series 4-3. After posting a strong 209 with the bat, having been inserted, England stayed in the ascendancy in the latter half with the hosts falling short by 67 runs eventually. England have three T20Is against Australia just ahead of the World Cup, while Pakistan fly to New Zealand to play in a tri-series also involving Bangladesh to prepare for the marquee event.
