Mohammad Hafeez scored 69 off 36

England vs Pakistan 2nd T20I: Hello and welcome to our coverage of England vs Pakistan live cricket match from Manchester.Half-centuries from captain Babar Azam and the experienced Mohammad Hafeez guided Pakistan to a competitive 195 at the Old Trafford in Manchester. Babar and Fakhar Zaman got the visitors off to a great start with an opening partnership of 72 runs before the latter was dismissed by Adil Rashid. Babar powered his way to a 44-ball 56 before falling to Rashid. Shoaib Malik and Hafeez then looked to steady the innings with their 50-run stand before Chris Jordan removed the former. Hafeez, however, carried on the momentum to score 69 off 36.  England have won the toss, have opted to field first and have also retained the same playing XI. Eoin Morgan's England will square up against Babar Azam's Pakistan in the second T20I after the opening game was washed out due to rain. Both teams are expected to go with the same Playing XI from the first game. Opener Tom Banton impressed everyone with the bat in the game where only 16.1 overs of play took place. Banton slammed 71 runs off 42 balls in which he slammed 4 fours and 5 sixes. While spinners Imad Wasim and Shadab Kham scalped two wickets each for Pakistan. After losing the Test series, Pakistan will look to bounce back in the tour under Babar Azam's captaincy.
