England completed a Twenty20 series whitewash of Pakistan with a stunning super over victory in Sharjah. After Chris Jordan restricted the hosts to just three from their extra over Eoin Morgan hit the winning runs with a ball to spare to claim the most remarkable of wins to underline their overseas dominance in the United Arab Emirates.
Pakistan needed 10 runs to win from the final over but Shoaib Malik (75) was bowled by Chris Woakes from the penultimate ball. Chris Jordan claimed a tie but the brilliance of the frugal bowling of Jordan meant Morgan was able to guide his team home with ease.
After Jason Roy was trapped lbw from the first ball of the match by debutant Aamer Yamin, James Vince (46) and Chris Woakes (37) helped England reach 154 for 8 from their 20 overs. Shahid Afridi dazzled with the ball with figures of two for 19 which included the dismissal of Moeen Ali for a golden duck.
A flurry of early wickets had looked like gifting England their third win of the series as the 2009 world champions were reduced to 65 for 5. David Willey took three but it would be the combination of Malik and Afridi which would turn the tide with a breath-taking partnership. Malik looked set for the crowning moment but was dismissed by Woakes with a ball left. Sohail Tanvir needed two from the final ball but a bye meant England were involved in their first ever Super Over before Jordan stole the show.
