After their first win on the tour, Pakistan were convincingly beaten by the home side in the second game.

Mohammad Hasnain

Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan will be key to Pakistan at the top. If they give a good start, Pakistan are in a position to post a big total. The lack of support from the middle order was evident in the last game and is a concern for Pakistan. That puts a lot of pressure on the openers. Allrounder Shadab Khan will be crucial in the lower order and with his legspin. Shaheen Afridi has been able to contain explosive England batters on good batting wickets.
