England have no room for maneuver if they want to triumph over Pakistan in their seven-game T20I series. The hosts won the fifth game on Wednesday night in a duel with few points and now lead the series 3-2 with two games to go.

First up, Pakistan beat England to an achievable target of 147 from their 20 overs, but a collapse on the power play dropped them to 31-3, with Alex Hales, Phil Salt and Ben Duckett all going cheap. England managed to bounce back thanks to Moeen Ali’s 51 not outs but they needed 15 runs to reach the final and a brilliant death bowling from debutant Aamir Jamal dropped them eight runs to victory.

That loss comes as another failed chase in the fourth T20I saw England lose by four runs after Reece Topley went out with five balls remaining in the innings. The tourists should have won both games and the string of defeats means England need to win their last two games in Lahore to be victorious in the series. Can you get the work done tonight?
