Former Pakistan opener Yasir Hameed thinks 'X-factor' Asif Ali needs to start delivering for Pakistan consistently in the shortest format of the game.

Pakistan and England will take on each other tonight in the series decider at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The seven-match series is currently levelled at 3-3.

England won the sixth T20I courtesy of Phil Salt's 41-ball 88. Yasir wants Pakistan match-winners to also step up in the series decider tonight.

“You can’t predict a winner in the T20 format. You just have to see how many match-winners you have and how many x-factors do you have in your team,” said Yasir.

“England played Salt consistently because he has is an x-factor for them. He delivered for them in the last game. For us, we have Asif Ali in that role, but he hasn’t delivered consistently for Pakistan. With his current form, he can win us only five matches out of a 100, which is a low percentage. Asif needs to start delivering consistently for Pakistan.”
