Pakistan v England LIVE: T20 cricket scores and updates as Will Jacks debuts in Karachi

Babar Azam in pursuit of the world record with his partner Mohd Rizwan

England suffered a crushing defeat in the second T20I of this seven-game series, with an unbelievable batting display from Pakistan openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam saw them hit 200 runs without losing a wicket. Fortunately for England, it’s a quick turnaround with the third T20 coming just a day after they had fallen to defeat.

Yesterday, Moeen Ali won the coin toss and was the first to hit. England started slowly, although there were solid contributions from Phil Salt (30), Ben Duckett (43) and Harry Brook (31) before Moeen himself (55*) finished the innings in style, taking England to 199-5 halfway.

It was a total that seemed out of reach for Pakistan, which, two days earlier, had only managed 158 points. With no choice but to attack to keep up with the 10 runs over rate, Rizwan and Babar got to work. They were nearly perfect with one chance – a missed capture by Alex Hales – the only flaw in their partnership. Rizwan finished with 88* and Babar (110*) scored his second T20I hundred to pass Pakistan over the line at a gallop. The series is now at tier 1-1 and is well positioned for more drama and excitement tonight.

Catch all the action in Karachi as Pakistan welcome England in the third T20 of the series:


A crucial move to win?

Moeen Ali won the coin toss twice in both matches of this series. He decided to pitch first in the opening game and England were able to take down 158 with relative ease. In the second game, he decided to hit first, and despite putting 199 on the board, Pakistan chased after him with three balls left.

Bowling first seems to be the key factor in these games in Karachi, which means the pitch today could be vital to winning. The old adage is often ‘win the bid, hit first’, but in Asia that’s not the way to go in the T20s.

Nine times out of 10, the team that hits second wins the game. It won’t be surprising if that happens again tonight.


Moeen takes responsibility for the defeat

England captain Moeen Ali admitted he made a bet in yesterday’s match when he decided to play in 13th place, despite pre-game planning saying that right-handed hitters like to attack off-rotating pitchers.

“The momentum changed when I dropped mine. It really gave them belief and after that they were almost unstoppable,” he said after the home team went 1-1 after two games.

“I felt like I was in control for the most part. I really feel like my over lost the game for us. That was a gamble on my part. I went to try to get a wicket, I almost bought a wicket. Obviously it didn’t work and that’s when Pakistan really won the game.”

Moeen’s over was 21 runs, including three sixes, which put Pakistan ahead of the required race rate. Despite Moeen’s sentiments on the matter, Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam were an unstoppable force yesterday, with only Liam Dawson 0-26 (4) and Sam Curran 0-29 (4) leaving the game with respectable bowling figures to England.

Andrew Strauss plans cricket reform labeled ‘impractical’ by county chiefs

County heads have criticized Sir Andrew Strauss’ proposed reforms for domestic cricket, although they concede that changes are needed.

The former Test captain has spent the past six months overseeing a high-performance assessment for the England and Wales Cricket Board, launched after the Ashes’ defeat last winter, and has come up with 17 recommendations.

Fifteen of these are under the ECB’s purview and already have the necessary support, but two key proposals involving a complete reorganization of the county calendar need the support of at least 12 of the 18 first-class counties to move forward.

But Sussex chairman Jon Filby told the BBC: “Strauss’ high performance rating is equally impractical as far as county cricket is concerned.”


Masterclass by Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan surprise England in 10-wicket victory in Pakistan

England had no answer for a majestic 200-race partnership between centurion Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, while Pakistan tied their Twenty20 series 1-1 with a 10-wicket victory in Karachi.

The tourists were more than happy after posting 199 for five, with captain Moeen Ali ahead with 55 not outs on 23 pitches, but they were largely surpassed by the home side’s first goals.

Babar scoffed at questions about his Asian Cup score, hammering 110 and not 66 balls, and Rizwan broke 88 undefeated by sharing nine sixes and 16 fours.

England will be worried about the lack of incision from their bowling attack, but the two chances they generated against Rizwan were wasted when Alex Hales tackled him at 23 and Phil Salt wasted a takedown at 32.

The game will start again at 15:30 BST with this the third of four games to be played in Karachi.

Prior to the start of the series, Moeen Ali was supposed to replace Jos Buttler for the first three games as the England captain recovers from a calf injury, but there is a possibility that Buttler will return earlier than initially expected and he could be called up. to England today.

Changes are expected in the team as England’s bowling attack needs to be reinvigorated.

David Willey has struggled in both games so far and could be replaced by Richard Gleeson or another fast player, but Liam Dawson played well in a fruitless offense yesterday and should keep his spot.

hello and welcome The Independents coverage of the third T20 between England and Pakistan in Karachi. The seven-match series is tied at 1-1 after the hosts dropped a massive total in yesterday’s second game.

Moeen Ali – replacing as England captain once again – won the toss and opted to hit first, with England scoring a massive 199-5 score with Moeen’s 55* the standout performance of the innings. Pakistan responded and some like opening hitters, Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam, paved the way to 203-0 of 19.3 overs to bring the series back on equal terms.

It was an amazing performance and one that provided some interesting tidbits.

In Asia, T20 games are won nine times out of 10 by the second hitter, which will make today’s play crucial. In fact, both matches so far have been won by the chasing team – England in the first game and Pakistan in the second.

The field also looked sluggish and low when England hit, but it seemed to stabilize as the night wore on and made hitting an easier prospect in the second inning. Both camps will keep this in mind when deciding how to tackle today’s match.

But who will win the third T20 in the series?
