England captain Eoin Morgan led from the front with his destructive batting as England romped past Pakistan in the second T20I at Old Trafford.
Morgan, came in to bat after Shadab Khan was on his hat-trick ball. The England skipper got a slight reprieve when a leg-before shout against him was turned down on umpire’s call.
But the Irishman (66 off 33) and Dawid Malan (54*) took the game away with a blistering display of batting. Pakistan bowlers struggled to control the run flow by bowling straight at Morgan’s strengths. Their case was worsened when Mohammad Amir limped off the field with a hamstring problem.
Babar scored a 44-ball 56 before holing out to deep mid-wicket off Adil Rashid’s bowling.
