Hafeez steers Pakistan to thrilling win over England to tie series

Manchester: Mohammad Hafeez scored a scintillating unbeaten 86 as Pakistan held their nerve to defeat England by five runs in the third and final Twenty20 International at Old Trafford on Tuesday to tie the series 1-1.

Sent into bat, Pakistan posted 4-190 in their 20 overs as Hafeez and debutant Haider Ali (54) put on 100 for the third wicket, before restricting England to 8-185 despite a superb 61 from Moeen Ali.
