Skipper Babar Azam scored his second T20 International hundred to guide Pakistan to a comprehensive 10-wicket win over England in the second T20 international in Karachi on Thursday.
Opener Azam clubbed an unbeaten 110 from 66 deliveries that were studded with 11 boundaries and five sixes. His opening partner Mohammad Rizwan was not out on 88 from 51 balls that had five fours and four sixes.
The victory saw Pakistan level the seven-match series 1-1.
Earlier, England's stand-in skipper Moeen Ali struck a rapid half-century to lead his team to 199-5.

Ben Duckett (43), Harry Brook (31) and Alex Hales (30) also contributed to the run-fest as England hammered 119 in the last 10 overs.
Moeen hit two towering sixes off pacer Mohammad Hasnain's last two deliveries of the innings.
