WATCH: Two Pakistan fielders caught watching each other as the ball sails over the boundary for a six

Pakistan endured a heartbreaking seven-wicket loss in the one off T20 match against England at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Sunday. One-day skipper Eoin Morgan scored a quickfire 57 not out off 29 balls to lead home side to their second win in the build-up to the World Cup. Pakistan however did have their fair share of chances throughout the game especially in the second innings when England were put in a tough spot by some good bowling by Shaheen Afridi and Imad Wasim.

One of the game-changing moments of the match came during the 11th over which was being bowled by the right-arm medium pacer Faheem Ashraf. Eoin Morgan was new at the crease alongside former England captain Joe Root who was batting on 28 from 27 deliveries. Visiting captain Sarfraz Ahmed brought Ashraf into the attack in a bid to pick up another quick wicket and pile pressure onto the home side and the plan almost seemed to have worked, but only just.

Ashraf bowled a length delivery across off with Morgan on strike which the left-handed batsman sliced down the ground, failing to get the timing right on it. The ball went straight up in the air and stayed there for a while as Pakistan Hasan Ali and Imam-ul-Haq both raced towards the boundary line to take the catch. However, Ali and Imam both failed to communicate between themselves as they both terribly botched up the half-chance and the ball sailed over the rope for a six instead.
