Highlights

  • 02:07 (IST)

    PAKISTAN WIN! England got it down to 12 off 2, and then 6 off 1. But Tom Curran couldn't repeat his six and Rauf bowled a perfect yorker. Thrilling match, perfect T20 cricket. Pakistan level the series.

  • 01:59 (IST)

    WICKET! Wahab's got the big man. Moeen Ali gone caught and bowled. Back of length, Moeen tries to slog across but lobs it back. Is that the game?

  • 01:52 (IST)

    WICKET! Shaheen gets Gregory with a slower ball. Gregory slogs and misses, is bowled. But a scintillating assault this, from Moeen. He's put England on course for win from nowhere. England need 21 off 13.

  • 01:43 (IST)

    MOEEN SMASHES 3 SIXES off Shadab Khan, putting England right back. What a game this is turning out to be. See-saw. England need 42 off the last 4 overs.

  • 01:34 (IST)

    WICKET! Billings falls to Wahab. Slogs across and gets an edge to third man. Pakistan still ahead as they're striking at regular intervals. England need 65 from 34.

  • 01:26 (IST)

    Sam Billings keeps England going along with Moeen Ali. England need 79 from 42 - very gettable. Shaheen Afridi returns to the attack.

  • 01:05 (IST)

    PAKISTAN REVIEW. Banton is gone. Is that the game? Haris Rauf gets this to skid in and strikes Banton right in front. Huge huge wicket. Three reds on DRS. England 69 for 4. 

  • 01:00 (IST)

    WICKET! Run out is the last thing England want. Captain Morgan is gone run out. Mix up after he hits to cover, induced by a superb fielding effort from Babar Azam. Banton sends Morgan back late, and he's out at the striker's end. England 65/3.

  • 00:55 (IST)

    Wickets or not, Banton is dealing in boundaries. Power Play is done and England are 54 for 2, with Banton scoring 42 of those.

  • 00:42 (IST)

    WICKET! Superb catch by Fakhar Zaman in the deep and Dawid Malan is gone. Slog sweep goes to deep mid wicket, Zaman times his jump perfectly and takes it. England 26/2.

  • 00:34 (IST)

    Banton's not bothering about the wickets. He's hit three boundaries off Imad Wasim, two through reverse sweeps. Game on!

  • 00:28 (IST)

    WICKET! Bairstow gone. Shaheen with a beautiful yorker. Bairstow misses it completely and it hits the base of off stump. England 1/1, just the start Pakistan wanted.

  • 00:26 (IST)

    Welcome back. Jonny Bairstow and Tom Banton. Shaheen Afridi with the ball.

  • 00:16 (IST)

    No big hits of the final over but 9 runs all the same with Mohammad Hafeez top scoring with 86 not out. Pakistan finish with 190/4. Will it be enough on a flat wicket? 

  • 23:54 (IST)

    SIX! Curran bowls a full toss, in the arc and Hafeez knows. He picks it up perfectly with a full swing of his hands and Curran's missed yorker ends up into cow corner

  • 23:44 (IST)

    OUT! Full, reversing back in, 140kph. Surely a 19-year-old debutant - even as good as Haider Ali's been - isn't meant to keep these out. Haider goes for 54.

  • 23:39 (IST)

    Hafeez's absolutely enjoying batting with the youngster and they're competing in a way. Hafeez steps out and lofts Rashid over his head for a maximum before a flat sweep in the gap at deep square leg gets him his second consecutive fifty! He's under pressure to perform and boy is he pulling out the stops. Pakistan are 130/2.

  • 23:31 (IST)

    Fifty! Haider Ali picks the short length and pulls it to square leg for a boundary and that's his half century. He's beaten both the sweepers on the boundary. Fantastic knock from the young man. Pakistan are 108/2 after 12 overs. 

  • 23:08 (IST)

    SIX! Haider Ali's taken Lewis Gregory on first ball and picked him up from the legs and he's sent him into the stands for a 80m six. What a shot from the young man.

00:10 (IST)

Another good over for Pakistan against Jordan. Hafeez started it off with a huge maximum before England fought back to dismiss Shadab. 11 of the over eventually takes Pakistan to 181/4.

00:03 (IST)

Mahmood bowls cross seam at Shadab and strays on the pads - the batsman's whacked it away with disdain four a boundary. Shadab and Hafeez ensured they didn't have any dots in the over which gets them 11 runs. Pakistan 170/3 after 18. 

23:58 (IST)

11 of the Tom Curran over as Hafeez and Shadab work him around for five singles. Curran bounced back well to bowl a better line and length to end his spell. Pakistan 159/3 after 17. 

23:54 (IST)

SIX! Curran bowls a full toss, in the arc and Hafeez knows. He picks it up perfectly with a full swing of his hands and Curran's missed yorker ends up into cow corner

23:53 (IST)

Slower off-cutter from Gregory and  Hafeez picks it up, backing away, stepping out and slicing it straight back down the ground, splitting long-off and on in the process. Poor bowling from Gregory to end his spell as Shadab chops him through backward point for a second boundary of the over. Pakistan 148/3 after 16.

23:44 (IST)

OUT! Full, reversing back in, 140kph. Surely a 19-year-old debutant - even as good as Haider Ali's been - isn't meant to keep these out. Haider goes for 54.

Hafeez also making good use of the surface as he picks Tom Curran from outside the off stump for a maximum. Nine of the over takes Pakistan to 117/2. 

23:31 (IST)

Fifty! Haider Ali picks the short length and pulls it to square leg for a boundary and that's his half century. He's beaten both the sweepers on the boundary. Fantastic knock from the young man. Pakistan are 108/2 after 12 overs. 

23:25 (IST)

16 runs of Rashid's second over as Hafeez takes charge and smashes two sixes one after the other. Sweeps him through midwicket both times with the second landing outside the stadium. Pakistan are 100/2 after 11 overs.

23:20 (IST)

Haider Ali sticks to his attacking shots and mishits one but Sam Billings has not judged it well and it's given the youngster another boundary. Gregory and Morgan won't be happy. The over has costed them 7 and Pakistan are 84/2 after 10 overs. 

23:15 (IST)

Haider Ali works the first three deliveries of the over for a couple of twos and a single before Hafeez pounces on a short one and hammers it away through point for four. Pakistan 77/2 after 9 overs.

23:12 (IST)

12 runs from that over including the six. Hafeez and Haider Ali batting brilliantly here and giving England quite a few headaches. After 8 overs, Pakistan are 66/2 and Adil Rashid is coming into the attack

23:08 (IST)

SIX! Haider Ali's taken Lewis Gregory on first ball and picked him up from the legs and he's sent him into the stands for a 80m six. What a shot from the young man. 

England vs Pakistan, Highlights, 3rd T20I at Manchester: As It Happened

England vs Pakistan, Live Cricket Score, 3rd T20I at Manchester Live Updates: PAKISTAN WIN! England got it down to 12 off 2, and then 6 off 1. But Tom Curran couldn't repeat his six and Rauf bowled a perfect yorker. Thrilling match, perfect T20 cricket. Pakistan level the series.

Preview: England are in with a golden chance to win their sixth T20I series on the trot, having a lead of 1-0 over Pakistan in the ongoing series. On Tuesday, the two teams will meet again, and hosts England will look to extend their winning run on the tour, where they haven't lost a single match. Putting things into perspective further, it has been over two years since England lost a T20I series and they appear primed to add to their winning streak. With the first match having been washed out, Pakistan, the current No.4-ranked side in the ICC T20I Team Rankings, will look to find ways to counter the potent England batting order in a bid to level the series. After their bowling fell short in the second T20I with Mohammad Amir getting injured, they might want to go in with veteran Wahab Riaz. Also, if they decide to give Shaheen Shah Afridi some rest, who has played all the matches on this tour, the 20-year-old Mohammad Hasnain might also be an option to consider. On the other hand, England would like to make changes in their weak-looking bowling attack and go in with David Willey, who was in senstional form against the Irish. While the first T20I had to be abandoned mid-way due to rain, the second was played under mostly clear skies and the forecast looks promising for the series finale as well. Another run-fest might be on the cards in Manchester.

Eoin Morgan (England captain): "The last two years in international cricket are my best numbers to date. That's great because if I can combine a little of that [form] with my experience, I think that will go a long way to winning games."

Babar Azam (Pakistan captain): "We stuck to our plans while batting, but we couldn't bowl well. Credit to Malan and Morgan for the way they played."
