Mistake of taking Adil lightly

Pakistan’s team was also taking lightly and they took two such wickets due to which the game turned towards England. He dismissed captain Babar Azam for 32 runs and the team’s youth sensation Mohammad Haris also took the team out.
all rounder did not work
Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Nawaz added runs in the important matches for Pakistan in this tournament, all-rounder coming down the order. All these three players did not get much support in this match. Shadab scored 20 runs but Nawaz could score 5 and Wasim could only score 4.
Could not take advantage of the opening wicket
As expected for the Pakistan team, Shaheen Shah Afridi started with the wicket. In the first over itself, he took the wicket of Alex Hales. After this, Haris Rauf made the team’s return by taking the wicket of captain Jos Buttler. From here the rest of the bowlers did not take wickets and a partnership took the match away from Pakistan.
