England were today crushed in Karachi as Pakistan’s openers inflicted upon them the biggest 10-wicket win in Twenty20 international history.
Babar Azam hit 110 not out and Mohammad Rizwan an unbeaten 88 as Pakistan pulled off a remarkable victory to level the sides’ Twenty20 series at 1-1.
Chasing 200, Pakistan’s opening pair produced a batting masterclass in Karachi to seal the win with three balls to spare. Babar reached a sublime century from 62 balls, while Rizwan hit four sixes in a whirlwind 51-ball knock.
It meant Pakistan set a new record for the highest chase in all men’s T20s without losing a wicket.
The previous highest target reached without losing a wicket was 169, by New Zealand against Pakistan in 2016.
Scores in the match; England 199 for 5 from 20 overs….Pakistan 203 without loss.
