Babar Azam hit his second T20I century and made an unbreakable 203 partnership with Muhammad Rizwan. Babar and Rizwan’s spectacular innings broke the world record of the highest chase in men’s T20 cricket without losing a wicket.
England’s team won the toss and elected to bat first, and sent their two openers, Phil Salt and Alex Hales, in front of Pakistan’s fast bowlers. The two had been making 42 run partnership, but Dahani got Hales’ wicket, and on the next ball, he also got Malan’s wicket, which built pressure on England’s team.
Later, Phil and Duckett moved the innings to 95 runs, where Phil got out by Rauf, and in the next over, Duckett also got out by Nawaz. Later, Moen Ali and Brook had been making 59 runs partnership, but Rauf got Brook’s wicket. Later, Moen Ali and Sam Curran stayed on the crease and set a target of 200 for Pakistan to win.
The Pakistan team sent their two openers, Babar and Rizwan, to chase the 200 runs. These two played very well, chased the score without getting out, and set a world record of unbreakable partnership in T20I.
England got two chances to get Rizwan’s wicket, the first was when Rizwan, on 23, cuffed the ball to mid-on off Liam Dawson and Alex Hales dropped the catch, and the second was when Phil Salt missed a stumping off the first ball of Adil Rashid’s spell, but they failed.
Moen Ali also did an over of 13th to get a wicket, but Babar and Rizwan smashed it with 21 runs, in which Babar hit two sixes, and Rizwan hit one six.
As this T20I series is for the flood relief fund, every six hits by players cost the sponsors a $1,000 donation. In this match, the England team hit nine sixes, and the Pakistan team also hit nine sixes, due to which $18,000 has donated to the flood relief fund by sponsors.
Babar finished the innings with 110 runs off 66 balls, and Rizwan finished with 88 off 51. Pakistan has leveled the series by 1-1 of seven T20I matches after this spectacular win against England.
