England beat Pakistan by 67 runs
That's it then from this game and this series as well. Moeen Ali has been handed the trophy and the England players are posing for some team pictures. England will now continue with their travel and go straight to Australia and play the home side in a three-game T20I series leading up to the T20 World Cup. The first match will be played on 9th October at 1.40 pm IST (8.10 am GMT). On the other hand, Pakistan will move to New Zealand to take part in a T20I tri-series which will involve Bangladesh as well. Their first match will be against Bangladesh which will be played on 7th October at 7.30 am IST (2 am GMT). Do join us for the coverage. Till then, take care and goodbye.
Moeen Ali, the skipper of England is up for a chat. He says that it was a very good series and credits his bowlers for the way they performed throughout the series. Adds that all the batters played really well too even though they failed a few times to chase down the total. Mentions that when they needed two must-win games the boys stepped up and it was amazing to see that. Ends by thanking the crowd and PCB for hosting England.
Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan is up for a chat. He says that it was difficult to chase 200 runs after losing early wickets. Further says that their plan didn't work from the start of the match. Says they will sit and talk about what went wrong. Tells that Haris Rauf has been positive for them. Says they are missing Shaheen Afridi and hopes to have him back soon.
Harry Brook is the PLAYER OF THE SERIES. He says that the plan is to hit the ball straight. Adds that he had a lot of practice sessions in the nets and says that he tries to hit the ball straight but when there is an opportunity he looks to manipulate the field. Mentions that all the players are looking forward to the T20 World Cup but first they need to get out and get to Australia. Ends by saying that it has been good fun to be in Pakistan.
Dawid Malan is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH. He says that they treated this game as a final and it was a fantastic effort from them. Further says that the ball was coming on the bat nicely till the 12th over but after that, it started slowing up. Adds that they will leave for Australia and hopes that they perform well.
Presentation time...
Earlier in the game, Babar Azam won the toss and put England into bat. The English batters looked aggressive and even when they lost a couple of wickets early, everyone just kept on attacking. Dawid Malan played a brilliant inning from one end which ensured that the visitors finished on a score of above 200. The Pakistani bowlers, apart from Haris Rauf, didn't pose much threat and Mohammad Wasim had a game to forget. With a mammoth total to chase down, the Pakistani openers faltered and from then on it was all England.
Pakistan have been heavily reliant on Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan in this series and with both of them getting out very early in the innings, life was made very difficult for them. The only shining light was Shan Masood who once again showed his class by playing a lone hand. But with plenty needed, their middle order just didn't have enough in them to get even close to the English target and they will be disappointed to lose the series in such a way in front of a packed home crowd.
England had a big score on the board and all they needed was early wickets and they got just that. The English pacers made short work of the Pakistani top order in the Powerplay and set up the game nicely. The spinners too were able to control the game in the middle phase and in the end, they won the game quite comfortably.
What a fabulous series we've had and it is England who clinched the 7-game series 4-3 and they have done so in some style. Pakistan were completely outplayed in the decider.

David Willey To Iftikhar Ahmed OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Simple chance for the wicket-keeper and Philip Salt makes no mistake. David Willey comes from over the wicket and serves a short ball, on off and angling across. The pace is taken off the delivery and Iftikhar Ahmed backs away trying to cut it behind square. The ball takes a faint tickle and goes into the keeper's mitts. Pakistan in a big spot of bother here.

David Willey To Shan Masood
Willey bowls this back of a length and on leg, Shan Masood jabs it towards short fine leg for a run.
Golden chance! Every bad situation is an opportunity to get stronger and better. The middle order of Pakistan has been absent in this series so far, and with two mainstays of their batting dismissed cheaply, it's a fantastic opportunity for the batters to stand up and prove their mettle under scorboard pressure. This series was considered as a perfect way to prepare for the mega event, and Pakistan will get a shot in the arm if their middle order ends up doing something unimaginable tonight.

OUT! BOWLED! Two wickets in a span of three deliveries. Reece Topley strikes in his first over and gets the wicket of in-form Rizwan. He bowls this much fuller and on middle, Mohammad Rizwan is expecting the inswing and goes for the flick, but the ball just straightens after hitting the deck and Rizwan closes the face of his bat early. The ball goes through and shatters the stumps. Pakistan lose both their openers and are in a spot of bother.
