England defeats Pakistan by 2-1

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has on Wednesday said he was aware of the mistakes his side had made during the series against England and assured the team would struggle through them.

Adil Rashid took a career-best haul before England just did enough in a nervous chase to wrap up their white-ball home season with a thrilling three-wicket victory over Pakistan in the third and final T20I of the series at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

England wrapped up the T20I series with a 2-1 victory following the embarrassing ODI defeat — 3-0 — that Pakistan had endured at the hands of the hosts just a few days ago.

Babar Azam, speaking during a post-match press conference, said his side had a 15-20 run short target for England in the final and decisive T20I match.

The skipper said the team suffers a setback when wickets fall continuously, adding that the batsman had played some amateur shots during the third T20I.

He praised the spinners for bowling well and noted that Pakistan’s fielding was getting better with time. “We still need to work on building [match-winning] partnerships.

“Mohammad Rizwan’s performance was up to the mark during this tour,” Babar added.

Admitting failures in the field, Azam said that they would not repeat their mistakes in the next match and would try to play good cricket.
