England vs Pakistan | 'Unpredictability at it's Best!' - Twitter Applauds Pakistan's Thrilling Win

An extraordinary game unfolded between England and Pakistan but surprisingly it was the latter that went on to edge the match against the 2019 World Cup favourites by 14 runs.

 

After being asked to bat first, Pakistan got off to an excellent with the openers Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman getting off to a flier. But it was Babar Azam who stole the headlines in the early stages.

 

While there was the fall of regular wickets, Pakistan managed to go past 340 courtesy of skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed’s half-century.

Pakistan bowlers backed up the batsmen in the initial stages of the defence. The pacers kept the pressure on and the spinners managed to get the breakthroughs.

Joe Root and Jos Buttler helped rebuild the innings with a 100-plus run stand. Root went on to score a century but he was sson dismissed.

 

Buttler also brought up his century – the fastest for an England player in the World Cup. But Mohammad Amir removed him soon after to bring Pakistan back into game. The home side’s lower order was getting quick runs but Wahab Riaz struck two vital blows at the end to seal the game for Pakistan.
