Dawid Malan scored a brilliant half century to take England to 209-3 in the series-deciding seventh and final Twenty20 international against a sloppy Pakistan in Lahore on Sunday.

The left-hander hit a 47-ball 78 not out and was ably supported by Harry Brook (46 not out) and Ben Duckett (30) after England were sent in to bat by Pakistan at Gaddafi Stadium.
