Ahead of their second T20I on Thursday, September 22 against England at National Stadium in Karachi, Pakistan were faced with the Covid concerns. According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), reported by Cricket Pakistan, a member of the Pakistan support staff was tested positive for Covid.

The member won’t be travelling with the team for the second game of the seven-match series. Moreover, the second T20I will go ahead as scheduled despite the Covid scare in the Pakistan camp.

Pakistan are currently trailing the T20I series 0-1 after losing the opening game by six wickets on Tuesday, September 20. After being put in to bat first, the Men in Green made a decent start, courtesy an 85-run for the opening wicket off 9.3 overs between Babar Azam and

Mohammad Rizwan.

From there on, the Pakistan middle-order faltered big time. Iftikhar Ahmed scored 28 runs, but he didn’t get much support from others.

England chased 159 down with four balls to spare. Alex Hales, who made his comeback after Jonny Bairstow got injured while playing golf, scored 53 runs off 40 balls. Rizwan scored a half-century and also joined Babar as the fastest to 2000 runs in T20Is.

However, valiant efforts from the 30-year-old went in vain as the Three Lions won without having to break much sweat.

The other five matches of the series are scheduled to take place on September 23, 25, 28, 30 and October 2. Pakistan will be looking to draw level in the series with a win on Thursday.
