Pakistan signed off their England tour with a nine-wicket win in the only T20I – in Manchester – on Wednesday (7 Sep).
Wahab Riaz was the highest impact player, and bowler, of the match for his three top/middle-order wickets in a highly restrictive spell (3 for 18 off 4 overs).
Sharjeel Khan was the highest impact batsman and his 36-ball-59 provided Pakistan with the ideal start. He and Khalid Latif (59 not out off 42 balls) put on 107 runs for the first wicket off just 11.1 overs – effectively sealing the chase.
Alex Hales, meanwhile, finished as England’s highest impact player.
Four players from Pakistan failed in the match while England, who cut a sorry figure, had eight such players.
