England vs Pakistan 2nd T20I in Old Trafford, Manchester live starts at 6.45pm IST on August 30 – Live Cricket Score, ENG vs PAK Live Updates, Live on Sony LIV, Ball-by-Ball Commentary updates from 2nd T20I between England and Pakistan.

After succumbing to a Test series defeat in a decade, Pakistan hoped to seek vengeance but rain once again played spoilsport in Manchesters as the 1st T20 got washed out.

After Tom Banton scored his maiden T20 fifty, the Three Lions could manage a score of 131-6 in 16.1 overs before rain started pouring in.

The rain put paid to England’s innings and encroached on Pakistan’s to such an extent that play had to get underway by 9.19pm to permit a five-over match.

With 30 minutes to spare, the groundstaff began a hasty mopping-up operation but on the stroke of 9pm, the umpires decided no further play would be possible due to the wetness of the outfield
