In the history of Twenty20 Internationals, the Pakistan cricket team became the first team to successfully chase a target of 200 or more without losing a wicket on Thursday.

In the second Twenty20 International against England, Pakistan’s opener Babar Azam made a century and Rizwan blasted an unbeaten 88 to assist the team reach the 200-run goal without losing a wicket.

Additionally, this is the highest successful run chase in T20Is by any side without losing a single wicket.

It’s interesting to note that Pakistan also played in the previous T20I record-holder for the highest successful chase, which was achieved in 2016 at Hamilton when New Zealand chased 169 without losing a single wicket.

It’s also important to note that Pakistan is the only side to have successfully chased down a target of 150 or more on two separate occasions without losing a single wicket.
