Chasing 107 for victory, England reached the target with just one ball to spare thanks, in the main, to Lydia Greenway's innings of 34.

England captain Charlotte Edwards also played her part with 24 at the top of the order, but a middle-order collapse set up a nervous finish to the game.

Danielle Hazell and Natalie Sciver had earlier taken two wickets apiece to restrict Pakistan to 106, with captain Sana Mir and Nida Dar both top-scoring with knocks of 36.

England are looking to go one better than in the inaugural World Twenty20, when they lost narrowly to Australia in the 2012 final.

They have been placed in Group B alongside hosts Bangladesh, West Indies, India and Sri Lanka.
