2nd T20I: Moeen Ali says a ‘gamble’ cost England against Pakistan | Cricket News

England Captain Moeen Ali said his only remaining from off-spin bowling against Pakistan was a “gamble” that didn’t pay off after the visitors lost Thursday’s second Twenty20 International in Karachi.
Pakistan was chasing 200 for the win, and Pakistan was left 104 for no loss in the 13th when Moeen turned himself in and gave up 21 runs, including three sixes.
Pakistan grabbed the momentum and won by 10 wickets, skippered Babar Azam hitting a brilliant century.

“The momentum changed when I fell over. That really gave them the faith and after that they were almost unstoppable,” Moeen said.
“I felt like it was under control for the most part. I really feel like my over lost the game for us. That was a gamble on my part.
“I was going to try to get a wicket, almost buy a wicket. Obviously it didn’t work and then Pakistan really won the match.”
The seven-game series stands at 1-1, with the third T20 to be played on Friday.
England will play four games in Karachi and three in Lahore before returning in December to play three Tests in the second leg of the tour.
