England reclaimed the lead in their T20I series with Pakistan after a brilliant century-long unbeaten streak between Harry Brook and Ben Duckett secured a dominating 63-point victory in Karachi.

Brook hit 81 from just 35 deliveries, while Duckett added 70 from 42 balls as England went 221-3 after being put at bat, debutant Will Jacks giving the Tourists a flying start with 40 from 22.

Pakistan, who chased down 200 without dropping a wicket to level the series on Thursday, were unable to repeat their batting heroism as returning Mark Wood (3-24) took two opening wickets to give England’s stranglehold on the game that Moeen Ali’s side never gave up.

The win gives England a 2-1 lead in the seven-match series, which resumes in Karachi on Sunday before moving to Lahore for the final three matches.

A first half-century T20I for Brook, 23, in addition to his solid performances in the opening two games, quickly establishes him as a key member of England’s short-form squad ahead of next month’s World Cup in Australia.

Unlike Duckett, who also hit his first half-century T20I, Brook made the squad for the tournament and made himself almost invincible, despite the imminent returns of Liam Livingstone and captain Jos Buttler from injury, and the England Test captain Ben Stokes from a rest period.
