PAK vs ENG: Pakistan will lock horns against England in the 2nd T20I of the England tour of Pakistan, 2022 on Thursday, September 22, 2022, at National Stadium, Karachi .
Debutant left-arm pacer Luke Wood picked up three-wicket haul while conceding just 24 runs to restrict Pakistan to a paltry total of 158 for the loss of seven wickets. Later Alex Hales cracked up 53 runs off 40 balls to anchor England’s chase of a modest 159-run target in 19.2 overs.
Pakistan made a string of changes in their playing combination after Asia Cup 2022 and they will look to persist with it and settle down their middle order conundrum. As for England, their regular skipper Jos Buttler will miss this game as well and Moeen Ali will continue shouldering the captaincy duties of the visitors.
All in all, with some of the best T20 stars taking the field against each other, an exciting game of cricket beckons at Karachi.
