The 27-year-old Amir has been off-colour following his match-winning performance in the Champions Trophy 2017 final against India, managing only five wickets in his last 14 worldwide games.

Fakhar fell for 57 when, trying to drive Curran through the covers, he sliced the ball to Wood at third man.

Mohammad Hafeez came out to bat next, and he along with Zaman stitched together a 104-run stand, allowing Pakistan to be in a comfortable position at the 30-over mark.
