England won the toss and elected to bat first but lost three quick wickets for just 19 runs. Then James Vince and Eoin Morgan took the score to 95 when Vince was bowled by Wahab Riaz after scoring 41 runs.
Sam Billings smashed 53 runs off just 25 balls with 2 sixes and 5 fours while Morgan scored unbeaten 45 runs.

While chasing the target of 161, Pakistan was all out for 146 in 20 overs.
Rafatullah Mohmand made his T20 debut as an opening batsman but he didn’t look comfortable at all and was caught behind off Liam Plunkett after scoring 16 runs.
Pakistan’s top order batsmen including Sarfraz Ahmed, Muhammad Hafeez and Muhammad Rizwan failed to enter into a double figure. Shahid Afridi’s poor form with the bat continues to cause a worrisome for the whole team. He got out on 0.
The tail-enders including Anwar Ali, Sohail Tanvir and Wahab Riaz’s excellent performance with the bat led Pakistan’s score to somewhat respectable position. They scored 20, 25 and 21 runs respectively.
