Commentary

9:07 PM IST Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan says that they batted well in the Powerplay but once he got out, the momentum shifted and they suffered a collapse and that's where you need your middle order to step up.

9:00 PM IST Presentation Time...
8:56 PM IST Earlier in the game, Pakistan got off to a good start but only managed to post a below-par score due to a collapse in the middle overs. The top order consisting of Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, and Usman Khan contributed the majority of runs while Iftikhar Ahmed and Naseem Shah added some crucial runs towards the end. England was fantastic with the ball will Mark Wood, Liam Livingstone, and Mark Wood all getting a couple of wickets each while Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, and Moeen Ali chipped in with one each as well.It was an pretty easy run-chanse for England but more importantly all of their top five batters got some runs under their belt that will give them a lot of confidence going into the main event.
8:53 PM IST Pakistan, on the other hand, will be dissappointed with their performance as a whole in this game. They had some moments but were  never really in the game defending this smallish target. The frontline pacers were taken to the cleaners and were unable to make much impact against the powerful batting of the hosts. Azam Khan also did not have a good game behind the stumps and dropped a couple of chances which you cannot really afford defending a low total. The only positive for them was Haris Rauf who showed some fight and picked up all the three wickets that fell and will look to maintaing this form in the World Cup while the rest have their task cut out.
8:51 PM IST England got off to an a absolute flier with both Phil Salt and Jos Buttler smashing it all around the park. They utilised the Powerplay perfectly and put a lot of pressure on the bowlers. The duo added 81 runs together before Salt unfortunately got out after blasting 45 off just 24 balls. After that, Will Jacks joined his skipper and did not let the scoring rate drop at all. Buttler was dismissed for 39 while Jacks also departed after a camoe. The job was mostly done by the top order, and Jonny Bairstow and Harry Brook finished it off with more than four overs to spare.
8:49 PM IST ENGLAND TAKES THE SERIES 2-0! A clinical performance from the hosts as they have outplayed the visitors in all three depratments. This is exactly what they would have wanted before going to the World Cup but not so much for Pakistan as they were never looked like challenging the home side in this game or in the series.
