Pakistan team played really well from its previous match against India and had decided to bat first after winning the toss but could not able to convert it into a win.

Shoaib Malik scored highest 78 runs and Sarfraz Ahmed scored 44 runs from Pakistan side to post a competitive total of 237 runs on the board. The 237 total was competitive enough to defend as Pakistan has a strong bowling line-up with Mohammad Amir like seamer who has a potential to turn the game.
