PAK vs ENG: Ahead of the second match of the three-match T20 series between Pakistan and England, the Corona virus has infiltrated the Pakistan team.
Before the second match of the three-match T20 series between Pakistan and England, the corona virus has infiltrated the Pakistan team. Ahead of the second match in Karachi on Thursday, September 22, a case of corona infection in the Pakistani camp has come to the fore, raising doubts about the match. According to Pakistani media reports, the infection was found among the support staff of the Pakistan cricket team. However, both the teams are all set to continue the match as per the scheduled schedule.
The second T20 will be held as scheduled
According to a report by Pakistan’s Geo News, the infection of support staff was noticed on Thursday. The Pakistan Cricket Board has also confirmed this. However, the PCB has expressed its commitment to organize this match at the scheduled time at the National Stadium in Karachi. The match will start at 8 PM IST.
England started the series with a win
Before the T20 World Cup, an important series of 7 matches is going on between the two teams. With this series, England returned to Pakistan after a long wait of 17 years. The tourist team also started the series in a great way. Despite the absence of some key players, including regular captain Jos Buttler, England beat Pakistan by 7 wickets in the first T20I in Karachi to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
With this series for England, strong opener Alex Hales, who was out of the English team for the last three and a half years, is also back. Hales played a bold innings in the first match, scoring a half-century on a tough pitch to ensure the team’s win.
Eyes on Babar Azam
Now Pakistan is expected to return to the series through the second T20 match. Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who has not been able to play a single big innings since the Asia Cup, is once again eyeing up. Although Babar appeared to be returning to form in the first T20I, despite a good start, he batted slowly and failed to play big innings.
