The second game of the T20I 3-game series between England and Pakistan will be played at the Old Trafford in Manchester. The match will start at 2:15 PM local time (6:45 PM IST) (1:15 PM GMT).
PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
England and Pakistan will lock the horns in the second game of the T20I 3-game series on Sunday at Old Trafford, where all three matches will be played. The first T20I held on Friday ended in a laundry after 16.1 rounds of play. England, who played first, reached 131/6 by then, thanks to Tom Banton’s 42-ball 71. The opening batsman hit five sixes and four fours on the way to becoming the youngest England player to score a fifty in Men’s T20I cricket.
The 2nd T20I between England and Pakistan could safely end without any rain interruption.
The best conditions for the Old Trafford beatings are seen throughout the first ten innings. The pitch here appears to get smoother, taking the spinners into the scene much like the first T20I on Friday.
