ENG vs PAK 2nd T20I: Possible Playing 11 of England


ENG Playing 11: England will play Pakistan in the second T20I of the series here at Headingley. Already trailing the series 0-1, England will be looking to level the series in this do-or-die game.

The runs conceded by the bowlers eventually cost England the match. In the overall head-to-head record in T20Is, England leads Pakistan 12-6.
