Pakistan lost the first T20I against England, despite their in-form opener Mohammad Rizwan scoring half a century of full blows. Rizwan was number one in the power play, setting up a solid 85-run opening partnership with captain Babar Azam. But after Babar’s resignation, Pakistan’s innings started to stutter.

Rizwan kept going on one side, completing another half century to continue his great form in T20Is,

But in the 15th over, Rizwan was completely foxed by Moeen Ali’s off-spin delivery that spun a little too much and passed the advancing Rizwan, who was pushed quite a bit by the wicketkeeper.

Rizwan’s resignation for 68 was the big wicket England had been looking for and the Pakistani innings then collapsed.

Pakistan then failed to establish a meaningful partnership, eventually making their way to a 158/7 under par in their 20 overs.

Adil Rashid was the star with the ball as he completed his quota of 4 overs with numbers of 2/27.


Medium pacer Luke Wood came back strong and finished with numbers of 3/24.

Alex Hales (53) and Harry Brook (42*) helped England win the match easily.
