Moeen Ali storms the National Stadium
55 not out in just 23 balls
Batting first, England scored 199/5 runs
New Delhi. The second match of the ongoing seven-match T20 series between Pakistan and England is being played at the National Stadium in Karachi today. Batting first after winning the toss in this exciting match, the visiting team England managed to score 199 runs at the loss of five wickets. Batting at the sixth order for the team, Captain Moeen Ali played an unbeaten half-century of 55 runs in just 23 balls at a strike rate of 239.13. During this, four fours and four excellent sixes came from his bat.
In the second T20 match for England, Alex Hales opened the innings with Phil Salt. Both these batsmen shared an important partnership of 42 runs in 5.1 overs for the first wicket. However, on this score, Hales’ patience was answered, and he was bowled by Shahnawaz Dahani. Hales, who scored a half-century in the last match, managed to score 26 runs in 21 balls today. During this, three fours and a six came off his bat.
New batsman David Malan, who entered the field after Hales, failed to show any special charisma and became the second victim of Dahani without opening the account. After this, Duckett, who came to the field, played well with Salt, and there was a half-century partnership between the two players. In the second T20 match, Salt Jahan became the victim of Rauf after scoring 30 runs. While Duckett (43) was shown the way to the pavilion by Mohammad Nawaz.
Apart from these batsmen, Harry Brooke contributed 31 runs in 19 balls and all-rounder Sam Curran contributed 10 not out in eight balls. The most successful bowlers for Pakistan were Haris Rauf and Shahnawaz Dahani. These two players got two successes respectively. Apart from this, Mohammad Nawaz took a wicket.
