England, chasing 196 for victory in the 2nd T20I vs Pakistan in Manchester on Sunday, won by 5 wickets with 5 balls to spare.
Pakistan had put up 195/4 in 20 overs, building on Babar Azam’s 56 and Mohammad Hafeez’s 69. In reply, England came out firing on all cylinders. Eoin Morgan (66) and David Malan (54*), who hit the winning runs, put on a 100+ partnership to take the hosts to a relatively comfortable win. England lead the three-match series 1-0.
Both the teams have fielded the same playing 11 from the 1st T20 International. On the question on Wahab Riaz's inclusion, Babar said that left-arm pacer is an outstanding bowler but the team can't afford to have three left-arm seamers, it would affect the balance of the team.
