Pakistan struggled to find momentum throughout the innings, starting from the fifth over when Mohammad Rizwan was dismissed by Sam Curran. Shan Masood helped the side recover briefly, thanks to promising partnerships with Babar Azam and Shadab Khan. However, they could gain ascendancy in the innings. Adil Rashid and Sam Curran bowled excellent spells to keep Pakistan to an underwhelming 137 for 8. Curran returned figures of 3 for 12, while Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan bagged a brace each. England would fancy their chances given the lowly target to chase.
