T20 World Cup: England beat Pakistan by six wickets in warm-up match | Cricket News


MELBOURNE: England beat Pakistan by six wickets in another practice match with Ben Stokes smash 36 ahead Harry Brook (45) and Sam Curran (33) chipped in with unbeaten cameos to complete the chase of 161 runs in 14.4 overs.
Skipper Jos Buttler was particularly happy with the return of Liam Livingstone (ankle) and Chris Jordan (finger) from injury.
“It’s great to see Liam Livingstone back on the field after a significant injury, and also to get four overs from Chris Jordan,” Buttler said.
“We tried some different things that guys wanted to experiment with and this is the perfect time to try to do it.”
Last year’s finalists, New Zealand, were bundled out for 98 runs in 17.1 overs by South Africa, who chased down the meager target by 8.4 overs.
Wayne Parnell struck twice in the clash before South African spin duo Keshav Maharaj (3-17) and Tabrazi Shamsi (2-6) ran through New Zealand’s batting line-up.
