England overcame a wobble to beat Pakistan in a pulsating final T20I on Tuesday (20) and won the series 2-1.

Chasing 155 on a dry, turning pitch, England needed 61 from nine overs with eight wickets in hand after Jason Roy’s 64.

In a dramatic penultimate over, Dawid Malan was bowled by Mohammad Hafeez, only for Liam Livingstone to hit his first ball for six then be caught off his next, leaving six required off the final over.

Chris Jordan got England over the line with two balls to spare.

Scores:

Pakistan 154-6 in 20 overs (Mohammad Rizwan 76 n.o.; Adil Rashid 4/35); England 155/7 in 19.4 overs (Jason Roy 64; Mohammad Hafeez 3/28)
