Pakistan vs England 5th T20I Highlights: Pakistan took a 3-2 lead in the series after beating England by six runs in the fifth T20I at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Chasing a target of 146, England were restricted to a total of 139 for seven in 20 overs. With 15 runs needed off the final over, debutant Aamir Jamal kept his cool as Pakistan held on for a win. Haris Rauf and Mohammad  Nawaz had earlier given Pakistan the perfect start as they had together removed the England openers. Mohammad Rizwan scored 63 precious runs for Pakistan before getting out and his efforts might just allow Pakistan to fight it out in this match as they posted a below par 145 al out. Mark Wood has picked up the wickets of Babar Azam, Haider Ali and Asif Ali to break the back of Pakistan’s batting. Earlier, England captain Moeen Ali won the toss and opted to field in the 5th T20I. (SCORECARD)
