commentary

So, Pakistan have kept up to their inconsistency tag - brilliant in one and clueless in another. What do they have for us in the third T20I? That is on Sunday (January 28) and it promises to be an entertainter with the series on the line. Do tune in for that. For now, goodbye and take care!

Sarfraz: Very pleased today. Credit to the openers for setting it up and giving us the platform to finish. We had nothing to lose and that's why I elected to bat. All the top three batsmen played very well. All the bowlers bowled very well, especially bowling in this small ground. It is difficult to captain a side on such small grounds, you do not know what a good score is and what kind of field to set. So, I am happy with the win.

Williamson: Pakistan were excellent tonight in all departments. We were not good in any department. There is a lot of belief in the camp. Short format cricket, you are always under pressure. The seamers having being bowling really well. Today was just an off day. Pakistan were brilliant. We were not good with the bat. If we had wickets in the hand, we could have chased down 200 on these small grounds. There is always positive. Today gives us a chance to sit down and reflect on our performances.

Fakhar Zaman, Man of the Match: It was a first win after a long time, so very happy. The wicket was much better in our innings. We just took our time and then played our shots. We were talking about surving the powerplay and then take our chances. I enjoyed batting today.

21:15 Local Time, 09:15 GMT, 14:45 IST: How did Pakistan not win a game so far? They were simply outstanding today. Bossed all three departments and have kept the series alive. Having equalled their second highest T20I total, the Pakistani bowlers came all guns blazing. They had a plan to bowl at the body and they executed it to perfection, claiming three wickets inside the powerplay. Guptill battled his way through to 26 and was the highest contributor in the top-order, while 30s from Santner and Wheeler just delayed the inevitable. All the Pakistani bowlers were among the wickets, Ashraf being the pick with three. The visitors have finally arrived on tour and they have in style. Stick around for the presentations..

The umpire took his time before raising the finger. Amir is delighted and so are the rest of his mates. They know the importance of this wicket. Full and aimed for the stumps, Munro shuffled across and missed on the flick, banged right in front of middle. HawkEye shows it to be crashing into middle stump. As plumb as it can get.
