MANCHESTER: A first T20 match between Pakistan and England has been postponed due to rain at Old Trafford.
According to details, the first of the three-match series was interrupted due to rain. However, both teams are looking forward to locking horns again tomorrow at Manchester’s Old Trafford Stadium.
In the first T20 contest, only 16.1 overs were bowled before the match had to be stopped due to persistent rain. England had scored 131 runs with the loss of six wickets after which the rain dominated the match. The umpires had to call off the match with great regret as the field was just too wet to continue the game.
Shadab and Imad Wasim bagged two wickets while Iftikhar Ahmed took one. Both teams will lock horns in the second T20I on 30th August at the same venue.
Moreover, England women team will host West Indies in five Twenty20 matches behind closed doors from next month. England and Wales Cricket Board chief executive officer Tom Harrison said that he was pleased that the players would be returning to action.
The games will be played in Derby in a bio-secure environment and replace scheduled series against India and South Africa after both teams were unavailable to travel due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
