- Pakistan 145, England 139-7; Pakistan won by six runs
- Debutant Jamal delivers crucial late wickets for hosts
In the end the fifth game of this series came down to whether or not Moeen Ali could hit 15 runs off the final over. England were chasing only 145, but it was a steamy evening under lights in Lahore, on a skiddy, tricky pitch, and aside from Moeen, none of their batsmen were able to get comfortable in conditions that felt very different to the ones they had experienced in Karachi last week.
Moeen, though, had managed to drag the game out and, thanks to a miscalculation on Babar Azam’s part, found himself facing Aamir Jamal, a 26-year-old debutant, with six balls to go and the match on the line.
