New Delhi. England made a spectacular start to the seven-match series by defeating Pakistan by 6 wickets in the first T20 International in Karachi. However, in the second match, England suffered a crushing defeat by 10 wickets at the hands of Pakistan. England has been playing in Pakistan for 17 years. In such a situation, there is a lot of enthusiasm among the fans. With the PCB leaving no stone unturned to ensure the safety of the players, young England batsman Harry Brooke has thrown light on the board’s efforts after the match.
Harry Brooks, who played a brilliant innings of 42 runs in 25 balls in the first match against Pakistan, told the condition of Pakistan’s security in a funny way. He said during an interview, “Whenever I go to the toilet, someone is following me. I’ve never done this before, but it looks cool. It feels very safe here and we are enjoying it.”
At the same time, England opener Alex Hales also praised the atmosphere of the stadium. Hales was playing for England for the first time in three years. The opener played at the venue frequently during his tenure in the Pakistan Super League. He said, “It is very special. I have played in a packed stadium here in Karachi before, but it was different. It is one of the best environment in world cricket. It is a place where I have spent a lot of time over the years. It’s a place that means a lot to me.”
Let us inform that in the second T20 match against England, Babar Azam returned to form by scoring a century while Mohammad Rizwan played a brilliant innings of 88 not out. Babar scored an unbeaten 110 off 66 balls, helping Pakistan win 203 for no loss with three balls to spare. In this way, the seven-match series is currently tied at 1-1.
