England did not start their chase well as they lost both their openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy in first 10 overs. Eoin Morgan also got dismissed cheaply on 9 runs by getting bowled by Mohammad Hafeez. It was then followed by the dismissal of first match hero Ben Stokes who fell prey to Shoaib Malik.
However, Jos Butler and Joe Root partnership of over 100 runs bought them back in the game. The game is still evenly poised as Moeen Ali is still on the crease.
Pakistan will have to get rid of Moeen Ali soon, if they want to win this match. But for that, they will have to take catches, as Sarfaraz Ahmed missed caught behind the chance of Moeen on Shadab's delivery.
