Four of the seven games were played with the lefty hitter on the roster. And he ended up playing a significant role, scoring 63 runs. The crowd chanted “parchi, parchi” as the player returned to the pavilion in a video posted on Twitter. The player continued, stating that the team plays for the fans and Pakistan.

PAK VS ENG Highlights
Two key players for Pakistan’s chase of 210 were dismissed in rapid succession by England’s speed attack, bringing the score to 33-3 for the visitors at Gaddafi Stadium at night. Babar Azam (4) and Mohammad Rizwan (1) fell victim to the visitors’ early success.
Shan Masood put up a fight with 56, but England, led by Woakes (3-26), kept picking off his wickets one by one. Reece Topley, Adil Rashid, and Sam Curran all took one wicket, and David Willey finished with figures of 2-22. When assigned to bat first, England quickly lost both openers, but then Malan (78) and Harry Brook (46) put up 108 runs for the fourth wicket to help the tourists reach 209-3 in 20 overs.
Malan and Brook took advantage of Pakistan’s sloppiness in the field, with Babar partly to blame for giving both batsmen reprieves. Mohammad Wasim (0-61) and Shadab Khan (0-39) took the biggest hit.
Starting on Sunday, England will play three games against Australia as part of their World Cup preparations. In contrast, Pakistan will play tri-series matches against Bangladesh and New Zealand beginning on Friday. On October 16, Australia will welcome fans worldwide to kick off the 2018 World Cup.
