England stand-in captain Moeen Ali said that Liam Dawson was disappointed about not being able to chase down the 167-run target against Pakistan.

England went down by three runs against Pakistan in the fourth T20I at Karachi on Sunday, September 25. With the defeat, the teams are 2-2 in the seven-match series.

“It was a great game, could have gone both ways,” Moeen Ali said at the post-match presentation.

With nine runs needed of the final two overs, England slipped as Haris Rauf got the crucial wicket of Liam Dawson (34). England eventually folded for 163 in 19.2 overs.

“We should have chased it down, disappointed that we couldn’t. Lost too many wickets upfront, did well to keep hanging in there. Brooksy did well again, Duckett too. Liam (Dawson) had a great game, obviously he’ll be disappointed to not finish things off,” Moeen said.

England and Pakistan will meet for the fifth T20I on September 28 in Lahore.
