After a humiliating loss in the One Day International series, Pakistan is all set to play their one and only T20 game in the series against England on September 07, 2016 at the Old Trafford. The match is very crucial for the Pakistani side, as it is their only chance to regain the pride in this tour.

The day/night t20I will start at 10:30 p.m. Pakistan time.

Final scorecard:

England batting first scored 135/7 in 20 overs.

Pakistan 139/1 in 9.3 overs. Win by 9 wickets.

New captain, new hopes

The Asian side has played the ODI series under the captaincy of Azhar Ali. And when it comes to the T20 game, the Men in Green are playing under Sarfraz Ahmed. Australian cricket team has experimented and succeeded in this technique of shuffling captains in various formats, and we should wait and see how this will turn around for Pakistan.

Expectations on Sarfraz are quite high, as he is the successor of Shahid Afridi in this format of the game.

In a recent talk, he expressed his anticipations about the encounter. The skipper told that he is quite excited to lead the side, and will be trying to play Twenty-Twenty like England and Australia.

Khalid Latif is expected to open the innings with Sharjeel Khan for Pakistan. Hasan Ali will make his T20 debut, as Mohammed Irfan returned to home last week.

Pakistan will telecast the t20 on PTV for viewers in their country, while the streaming canbe watched on their official websitePTV Sports.

In the United Kingdom, this match will be shown live on Sky Sports.

England: A team with stupendous morale

The English team under the Eoin Morgan is having a glorious period for the past one year. The team has made it a habit of winning matches, and they have proved it very convincingly in the recently concluded ODI encounters.

The main strength of the English side is the presence of high-quality all-rounders in their line up. Most of the members in the lineup have the capability to bat and bowl, and this makes them one of the most dangerous opponents for the visitors.

Pitch and conditions

The surface at the Old-Trafford is pace friendly, and it will be silliness if we expect a high-scoring outing.
