Malik hit the winning boundary off the penultimate ball to send Pakistan top of the table in the four-nation tournament which also features makeweights Canada and Zimbabwe. Pakistan had needed 13 from the final over but Alam slammed his third six and Malik then sealed victory with consecutive boundaries off Nuwan Kulasekara.
