Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan had defeated England a few days ago with a partnership of more than 200 runs. Now this account has been paid by the young England batsman Phil Salt. In the sixth T20 match in Lahore, Salt took out the smoke of the Pakistani bowlers and batted vigorously, giving the team an easy 8-wicket victory and leveling the series 3-3. (Photo: AFP)

Batting first in Lahore, Pakistan scored 169 runs in 20 overs.  In the absence of Mohammad Rizwan, captain Babar Azam played an excellent innings of 87 not out and took the team to this place.  (Photo: AFP)

It seemed that England would also face trouble in batting, but the opening pair of Phil Salt and Alex Hales, who failed in the last two matches, created havoc.  Both gave 50 runs in the first 3 overs including 22 runs in the second over and 17 runs in the third.  (Photo: AFP)

26-year-old Salt did a tremendous 'assault' and smashed almost every bowler.  Salt scored a half-century in just 19 balls, which is the third fastest half-century for England in this format.  (Photo: AFP)

The effect of Salt's attack was that England had scored 82 runs in the powerplay and 129 runs by the 9th over.  By this time Salt himself had scored 74 runs in just 27 balls.  Salt had a chance to break the record for the fastest T20 century, but then he slowed down.  (Photo: AFP)
