KARACHI: England substitute skipper Moeen Ali hit a quick half-century to lead his side to 199-5 against Pakistan in the second T20 international match in Karachi on Thursday.
Moeen broke four sixes and as many fours in his 23 ball 55 pace after England opted to strike first after winning the draw at the National Stadium.
Ben Duckett (43), Harry Brook (31) and Alex Hales (30) also contributed to the run-fest as England hammered 119 in the last 10 overs.
Moeen hit two huge sixes against point guard Mohammad Hasnain’s last two deliveries of the inning.
England, on their first tour of Pakistan in 17 years, won the opener by six wickets, also in Karachi on Tuesday, to take a 1-0 lead in the seven-match series.
