Old Trafford live score and latest updates

EThe ngland was marmalized during its last two T20s at Old Trafford, losing against Pakistan by no wicket in 2016 and India by eight in 2018. Given the state of the place which had to provide three fields of trial in a single summer, on which Stuart Broad took 22 wickets at 12, Chris Woakes 15-16 and Yasir Shah (in one test) eight at 21, there should be a lot of bounce, even given the monsoons that have hit the north of England over the past 10 days. This should be good news for Shadab Khan and Adil Rashid but also for Tom Curran, who brilliantly kept his cool to help England win in Durban this winter by taking two wickets with the last two balls of the match. .England crisscrossed the series with the two-point win, then moved on to Pretoria where their mighty batsmen – Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes revised 222 with five balls to spare.

No Buttler or Stokes today and no Jason Roy who has side tension and won’t be in good shape until the Australian series at the earliest. This gives Tom Banton, Sam Billings and Lewis Gregory the opportunity to claim the now postponed T20 World Cup until next year and they will have to grab it this fall as time is running out. There are also very few places.

One suspects when they start the tournament in India next year despite injuries their plan is still Roy, Buttler, Bairstow, Morgan, Stokes, X, Moeen, Curran T, Jordan, Archer, Rashid. That X might just be Root who might throw a plus or two in India like in 2016, but thinks it’s the only place to win.

Pakistan ended a long losing streak with back-to-back wins against Bangladesh in Lahore last February. Shadab Khan, their highest box-taker of the format in the past two years, will give it a tear and Mohammad Amir returns, but they look a light melon with T20 us among the dressmakers in Hasan’s absence. Ali. In Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam, they have two of the best white ball batsmen in the game who are worth millions in the IPL Draft without the shameful discrimination against Pakistani players. It should be a good game, weather permitting. So far, it’s pretty fair, albeit cold.
