England won the toss and chose to participate in the second T20I of the series of three matches at Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday, August 30. The first clash at the same venue was cut short due to rain, with the hosts reaching 131/6 in 16.1 overs, following a 42-ball 71 by opener Tom Banton before the game was called off. Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan each chose two wickets, while Iftikhar Ahmed was responsible for the resignation of opposition leader Eoin Morgan. Morgan’s men lost four wickets for just 14 runs in the space of 19 deliveries during a spell, after the pressure generated by the slow bowlers. (Live Scorecard)
