At Dubai, November 26, 2015 (floodlit). England won by 14 runs. Toss: England. Twenty20 international debuts: Rafatullah Mohmand; J. M. Vince.With one eye on the forthcoming World Twenty20, England adopted a rotation policy for this series, and Sam Billings was the fringe candidates who most advanced his case. They had slipped to 19 for three, but - in the absence of the rested Jos Buttler and Joe Root - were rescued by a stand of 76 in ten overs between Vince and Morgan. Vince hit a composed 41 on his Twenty20 international debut, then left centre stage to Billings. Employing strong wrists to good effect, he flicked Sohail Tanvir through midwicket and scooped Wahab Riaz over fine leg for six, reaching his maiden international fifty from 24 balls. Pakistan also included untested players: Rafatullah Mohmand, a 39-year-old opening batsman, and Imran Khan, a left-arm medium-pacer (not the Imran Khan who had featured in the first two Tests; this one had played two previous T20 internationals in Zimbabwe).But Rafatullah was one of two early wickets for Plunkett, who bowled rapidly in his first meaningful game of a long tour, and Pakistan soon slumped to 75 for seven. Their collapse included a comical run-out, with Umar Akmal and Sohaib Maqsood racing each other to the bowler's end; Maqsood's longer reach prevailed. Topley then nipped Wahab's late fightback in the bud.
Man of the Match:S. W. Billings.
