Match Preview: After their 31-run win in first T20I game, Pakistan will look to win their sixth T20 series from their last eight contests when they square off against England on Sunday at Headingley in Leeds. The current all-time Head to Head record favours England 12-6.
After being whitewashed in the ODI series bye the home team, Pakistan came back strong in the opening match of the T20I series with a series leading 31-run win. The visitors looking the better side in all three departments, with Babar Azam leading from the front with the bat.
Liam Livingstone’s 103 run innings off 43 balls was a fantastic knock to watch (his first ever T20I score over 30), the home team were always struggling after slumping to 3/48. Livingstone blasted 103 off 43 balls, posting the third-highest score by a T20I batter at No.5.
There are England’s chances of levelling the series are high. Not only have they not lost two T20s in a row at home since 2007 and have only lost one of their last ten T20s series, Dawid Malan (currently the world’s No.1 T20 batter) is surely out of form.
Considering their recent Win loss record of 15-6 across their last 21 completed T20Is and the fact that the upcoming T20 World Cup is being played in the UAE (the nation’s second home), combined with the recent sparkling form of their trio of stars (captain Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Afridi) shows just how well this Pakistan side have been playing after losing one-day series.
Players to watch: Moeen Ali has batted seven times against Pakistan in T20s for a total of just 84 runs and with one innings accounting for 61 of those, he has scored just 24 runs from the other six innings.
Babar Azam has top scored for Pakistan in five of their last nine T20Is. He has also amassed 242 runs from just five T20I innings against England at an average of 60.50.
Seven of England’s last nine T20I victories have come when batting second. In the past three completed T20s matches between England and Pakistan, both teams have scored innings of 180+. Fakhar Zaman is averaging just 13.65 from his last 20 x T20Is. Jonny Bairstow averages 40.33 when batting at three in T20Is, which is his best return.
Eoin Morgan (England captain): “Moeen and Liam will be in the middle-order to try and score runs. Liam has taken full advantage of it today, opportunity will continue over the next two games. We don’t have a lot of time between now and the T20 World Cup, so it’s all about establishing the guys before the World Cup selection.”
Babar Azam (Pakistan captain): “You need to change your mindset a bit. In the T20s, you need to take quick decisions, you have to remain positive and enjoy your game. We gave our 100% in all departments. We’ll look to build on the momentum.”
