Day 1 of 1
England Women win by 6 wickets

England vs Pakistan

England's women shared their Twenty20 series 1-1 with Pakistan

Arran Brindle: Run out off the final ball to hand Pakistan victory

Sarah Taylor: Made 57 to help England win the opening match

England's women shared their Twenty20 series 1-1 with Pakistan after the tourists snatched a dramatic one-run win in the final game of Friday's double-header at Loughborough.

After coasting to a 70-run win in the opening match, England were made to pay for shuffling their batting order as the second game was decided by a last-ball run out.

Arran Brindle was caught short by Nahida Khan going for a second run that would have tied the game, after her 39 had revived England's bid to chase down 118-8.

The hosts crashed to 52-6 but with Brindle, shunted down to eight, and skipper Charlotte Edwards still to come they retained strong hope.

That diminished when Edwards was caught off Sadia Yousuf (3-22) to leave England needing 13 from the final over and with two wickets in hand.

Anya Shrubsole then fell from the first ball and while Brindle cleared the ropes off the third, England fell agonisingly short as Pakistan held their nerve in the field.

Earlier, Sarah Taylor hit 57 off 50 balls while Edwards added 46 to help England post 145-7.

Pakistan never looked like chasing it down as Danielle Wyatt (3-16) ripped into their top order to at one stage leave them 14 for four.

There was no recovery thereafter as Pakistan limped to 75-6.
