Over 20. 8 runs. Bowler: Faheem Ashraf. England: 3-175(rr 8.75)

19.2 Faheem Ashraf to Eoin Morgan

SIX! Faheem Ashraf to Eoin Morgan. Short, to leg moves in front pulling, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. The captain seals the victory in style, blasting the ball back over the bowler's head for six. England have beaten Pakistan by seven wickets and with four balls remaining in a cracking game at Sophia Gardens. The tourists posted 6-173 on the back of fluent fifties from Babar Azam and Haris Sohail, with Jofra Archer impressing with the ball in hand. In reponse, Joe Root held things together while Eoin Morgan smashed a crucial half century to take the hosts to victory. Pakistan were a little sloppy in the field and with their running between the wickets, in the end it has cost them dearly in a tight contest. In contrast, England looked sharp in those areas which bodes well for them heading into the ODI series which starts at The Oval on Wednesday.
