It's all done now. Tonight in Karachi, we witnessed something truly exceptional as Pakistan successfully chased down 200 without losing a single wicket. Before giving his dear friend Babar a strong hug, Rizwan turns to face the sky. What a scene it seems to be as the spectators take it all in beside their heroes in the midst.
Pakistan is 180-0 after 18 overs (Rizwan 78, Babar 100) As a result of Curran's effective cutters today, he only allows a few singles from his first four before Babar taps away for one to reach an incredible hundred.
Sam Curran and Liam Dawson, who unfortunately had Rizwan drop off his bowling, were economical, but there was plenty of punishment elsewhere. However, there are still five more games in this series for them to resolve the issue. Additionally, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, and Reece Topley still have a role to play, particularly in the Powerplay where they have yet to record a wicket in this series.
