What has happened in the series so far?
England won by six wickets with four balls left thanks to the bowling of Luke Wood who took three wickets for 24 runs.
Alex Hales responded to the critics by hitting 53 off 40 balls while Harry Brook finished on 42* off 25 balls to guide England to victory.
It was believed England had done plenty to win the match after Moeen Ali hit 55* off 23, Ben Duckett had scored 43 and Brook had helped with 31 runs of his own to get England up to a score of 199.
However, Babar Azam then went on to hit his second T20I century and was joined in his venture by Rizwan who scored 88 as they gave Pakistan a victory by 10 wickets to level the series.
Despite two early wickets, England hit a mammoth score of 221 after their 20 overs thanks to runs from Will Jacks (40), Ben Duckett (70*) and Brook (81*).
Despite 65* from Shan Masood, this score proved far too grand for Pakistan who managed 158/8 with Mark Wood taking three wickets for 24 runs.
In a thriller that went down to the final over, Pakistan once again levelled the series. Rizwan hit above 80 once again as Pakistan reached 166/4 and despite an excellent recovery from Liam Dawson who hit 34 runs off just 17 balls, England couldn’t quite reach the score and lost by just three runs.
