Pakistan kept the series in the balance when they scored a win in a landmark 200th T20 International for the nation.
England have looked a dangerous side throughout though and Pakistan have had to work hard to get back to 2-2 heading into tye fifth match of the series.

Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam are perhaps the two best players in the world in the powerplay in their backyard and their form is key for the hosts.
Pakistan have had issues translating good starts into big totals leaving Shan Masood and Khushdil Shah under pressure.
Asif Ali looks good to fill the finisher role but could often do with more time at the crease to impact the game.
Even in spin-friendly conditions, Pakistan’s quick bowlers are a big strength as Haris Rauf showed last time out.
England have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to T20 batters but they can only give so many a go at once.
Nobody is ever safe from the axe in this team but Ben Duckett and Harry Brook have been the form men throughout the series.
They came close to chasing down a good total against a world-class attack thanks to a deep batting reserve and won’t be too concerned about the result last time out.
Adil Rashid, Moeen Ali and David Willey have so much experience as white-ball bowlers and are huge assets to the team.
The shift to Lahore should favour Pakistan.
