The 131/6 score was when it came to rain to push the players back. With its entry, we have a revised amount for Pakistan using the DLS method. However, for us to take any action, the rain must first stop and for now, it’s at its offensive best. Stay tuned for updates.

Pakistan started off spectacularly with Imad Wasim in the first over. He kept things tight until the powerplay and never let England out. However, post that the bowlers have been hit by Banton. However, once Shadab was eliminated, the bowlers once again put their magic on Pakistan. Imad and Shadab got 2 and Iftikhar Ahmed got one.

England were asked to bat after the toss went to Pakistan. A slow start and then a massive counter-attack from Banton. He added 71 runs with David Malan and scored the most runs in the stands. He liked Shadab and Rauf and scored briskly against the two, eventually scoring 71 off 42 balls with the help of 5 balls. However, once he fell, England lost just 3 for 5. The rain came to shorten the English innings.

Well, pet pet umpire says! They’re off, it’s a little difficult now. Right now the hover cover is ON only so it’s probably a passing shower.

11:52 PM IST
16.2 Mohammed Amir to Chris Jordan, wide, 1 run, outside and not wide! No bat included. Another ball from the leg side by Aamir. Jordan misses his flick again. Rizwan collects the ball back. They all appeal but the umpire has already made it wide. Rizwan says he has heard something. So, Babar makes it to the top at the last moment. It shows that the Ultra Edge rolls and there is no bat. Pakistan, finished with two of their reviews.

11:51 PM IST
The appeal of those who have been trapped in the past has been rejected. It was taken to the top.

16.1 Mohammed Amir to Chris Jordan, leg bye, 4 run, four leg byes! Useful border! The line from Aamir is not correct. It is in Jordan’s pads. He sees it working on the leg side but escapes. However, the ball clips its thigh pad and rolls around to a good foot fence.

11:49 PM IST
Mohammed Amir is back. It is raining but the umpires do not feel outgoing. Maybe they think it’s a passing shower.
