Do check Sportskeeda for the latest Sports news and live match commentaries. This is Lavil Saldanha alongside Pradeep Somashekhar signing off. We hope to see you all sometime soon. SEE YA!
England are now being presented with the winner's trophy. Moeen Ali walks to pick up the trophy and now goes to the winners board where he will be sharing it with his team mates as they get together for a photoshoot
Ramiz Raja (PCB Chairman) thanks England for coming out to Pakistan and play this T20I series, he says, they're not going empty handed as they've won the T20I series. Wishes well for the Pakistan team who are headed to play the World Cup in Australia in a couple of weeks time.
Moeen Ali (England captain): It was a brilliant game, we played well from the start. The batters put up a good score and according to the conditions, the bowlers bowled well not only in this game but throughout the series. When the team is batting like that, the strike rates are excellent. You can lose confidence after losing the first couple of games but the boys showed good character. The way we came back after losing the first couple of games has been excellent. Want to thank the crown and the association for looking after us really well 
Babar Azam (Captain, Pakistan): Always difficult chasing in a series decider anything over 200, we didn't execute the plan accordingly, we were just not good in the field, dropped a lot of catches today. This series was very vital for us, lot of things have exposed before the World Cup, we can sit and discuss about it, we can take some decisions to improve on.. Bowling is very settled, we're missing Shaheen but Rauf has stepped up, he's doing a good job for us. Pakistan fans were waiting and England have come here and played, hopefully they've enjoyed.
Harry Brook has been adjudged as the Player of the Series! Here's what he has to say: Just trying to hit it straight and play the ball according to its merit. Plenty of practice, time and drill in the nets to play the ramps. I look to play the ball straight down the ground but if there are gaps, I try to play it. We'll see how things turn out in Australia as we want to go on and get the trophy. It has been fun here and hopefully, we have entertained the crowds.
Dawid Malan has been adjudged the Player of the Match! Here's what he has to say: We saw this is the final, once we put up the big score, they were always under pressure. The first 12-14 overs, it was coming on nicely, later at the end, it slowed down a bit, luckily our bowlers learnt the lesson, bowled into the wicket. We're given a bit of a break, couple of the guys, few days of training and then will play in Australia.
England win the match by 67 runs and win the 7-match T20I series 4-3

What a series this has been from both sides and it is such an anticlimax that it ends with a nothing game. Both sides fought tooth and nail for a win in every game of this series and for this game, it seemed as if only England were up for a contest.

How did it start for Pakistan? Nightmarish, to be fair. Their top two scorers throughout the series, Babar and Rizwan were dismissed cheaply as the plans England laid for them came to fruition. Babar was dismissed softly while Rizwan was done in by a peach from Topley. Their problems doubled when they lost Iftikhar cheaply too.

Post that, Pakistan's shoulders only drooped. They couldn't pick themselves up from the strike that landed on them in the powerplay. Khushdil Shah and Shan Masood had a little partnership but that wasn't enough. 

With no runs coming in, wickets fell at regular intervals. Masood kept the scoreboard moving and got to his 50, but that wasn't enough as Pakistan could only manage 142 for the loss of 8 wickets at the end of their 20 overs.

England were on top of their game with the ball in hand. Adil Rashid, Reece Topley and Sam Curran picked up a wicket each. David Willey chipped in with a couple of wickets and then it was Chirs Woakes who broke the back of the chase with a triple strike, getting the wicket of Babar Azam, Shan Masood and Asif Ali.

Let's now hear what the captains, Player of the match and the Player of the series have to say

19.6 David Willey to Mohammad Hasnain, THAT'S IT! England clinch the series, 4-3 and finish a clinical victory here to win the game and seal the series, just showed they were the better side throughout today. Short on the outside off, Hasnain miscued it well over extra-cover, falls in no man's land and they pick up a brace in the end.
19.5 David Willey to Mohammad Hasnain, short and angling it across the right-hander on the wide of off-stump, Hasnain looks to slash that one away but misses.
19.4 David Willey to Haris Rauf, short on the outside off, Rauf has a big swipe across the line, toe ends it to deep covers for one.
19.4 David Willey to Haris Rauf, WIDE! Back of a length delivery but strays it way outside the off-stump, called a wide.
19.3 David Willey to Mohammad Hasnain, short on the off-stump, Hasnain has a big swing at it but he's skied it, goes high in the nightsky but lands safely near mid-off as they take a single.
19.2 David Willey to Mohammad Hasnain, full on the outside off, Hasnian drilled that one away, Woakes puts in the boot in the way to stop it near the boundary ropes at deep covers for a brace.
Mohammad Hasnain, RHB, walks out to the middle and will be on strike to face his first delivery
19.1 David Willey to Mohammad Wasim, OUT! KNOCKED HIM OVER! Back of a length on the off-stump line, Wasim walks across off-stump to ramp it but misses, that off-stump is pegged back and Wasim has to go.

Mohammad Wasim Jr. b David Willey 5(5b,1x4,0x6)
Haris Rauf, RHB, walks out to the middle and will be down at the non-striker's end. David Willey to bowl the final over of the innings, match and also the series
Right then - 6 balls, 75 runs. Highly improbable which is an understatement but let's see how much Pakistan can shave off here. They have lost their best batter for this game and now it will be interesting to see how hard does Pakistan's lower order swing the willow
