Read out the complete details about Pakistan vs England and the Second T20I Match Today down below with us!
England’s team won the first game by six wickets against Pakistan. As the club is experimenting with new lineups, wicketkeeper/batsman Muhammad Rizwan has asked cricket fans for patience and understanding.
After the first game, he spoke with the media and admitted that miscues are inevitable. Because the squad is adjusting for the forthcoming T29 World Cup, which will begin in Australia in a few weeks, the 30-year-old batsman stated the team’s efforts to find fresh combinations for the World Cup through these shifts should not focus on their errors.
Usman Qadir, the spin bowler for the Pakistan cricket team, thinks his team should have defended 158, but he’s still optimistic about their chances in the series. Through 159 runs for 4 wickets in 19.2 overs. England won the first Twenty20 International (T20I) by 6 wickets and a 1-0 series lead.
Yet Qadir, who is only 29, thinks the total is defendable by bowlers. Thus, the opener Alex Hales scored 53 off 40 balls in his first international game in three years. Due to a failed recreational drug test. Helping England reach their modest target of 159 runs in 19.2 overs in opening a seven-match Twenty20 International series.
After England sent Pakistan in to bat at a packed National Stadium, Pakistan’s opening batsman Mohammad Rizwan struck 68 runs off of 46 balls to help his team reach 158-7 in 20 overs. Because of this victory, England now holds a one-game lead in the seven-game set.
“By the grace of God, the skipper [Babar Azam] and I are performing well for quite some time, leaving a little room for our middle order to display their batting acumen,” he said. He said that the power-hitters worldwide couldn’t be expected to consistently hit 60 runs in every match.
“I think it was a decent total, we should’ve bowled according to plans but unfortunately we bowled away from wicket and also England played very good cricket to chase the score,” he told Geo in an exclusive interview after the first T20I at National Stadium.
