MANCHESTER: Pakistan will take on England in the only T20 game scheduled to play today (Wednesday) at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester, thenewstribe.com reported.
Pakistan would certainly look fresh as this is a different format under a different captain and with a different pool of players.
The game, as expected would be full of energy and excitement from both England and Pakistan.
England are already proven their worth even in this shortest format, as they almost won the World Twenty20 Cup.
On the other hand, Pakistan would not like to recall their WT20 memories at all, where they were knocked out in the first round losing at the hand of Australia, New Zealand and India.
