Haris Rauf‘s impressive death bowling helped Pakistan beat England in the fourth T20I to level the ongoing seven-match series at National Stadium in Karachi on Sunday.

While defending their total of 166/4, Pakistan were quite comfortable when England needed 33 more runs from just three overs, with only three wickets in hand. But then the game turned on its head as Mohammad Hasnain ended up conceding 24 runs in the 18th over, and the momentum shifted in favour of the tourists.

However, another twist in the tale was waiting to take place with Rauf picking up a couple of wickets in two balls, including Liam Dawson‘s, who was looking set to take England home, to put his side pretty much close to a famous victory. Reece Topley’s run-out in the final over then sealed the deal for Pakistan as England were bowled out for 163 with four balls to spare.

Earlier, the hosts put up 166/4 on the board in 20 overs, thanks to Mohammad Rizwan’s yet another sensational knock. The star wicketkeeper-batter smashed 88 from 67 deliveries, with the help of nine fours and a six.
