While England won the toss and invited Pakistan to bat first, they posted 169/6 with the help of skipper Babar Azam's unbeaten 87 run-knock from 59 balls. Among England bowlers, David Willey and Sam Curran picked two wickets each and also kept the run rate under control.
In response, England opener Phil Salt looked in tremendous touch with the bat and took the game away from the opposition in rapid time. Thanks to his aggressive intent, the Three Lions were able to breach the 100-run mark (102/1) in just 7 overs.
Only Shadab Khan managed to pick wickets for his team while the rest of them like Mohammad Nawaz, Shahnawaz Dahani and Mohammad Wasim Jr leaked 105 runs in just 8.3 overs without picking a wicket which put the team under enormous pressure from which they couldn't recover.
