Amy Jones along with Tammy Beaumont powered England to victory. A victory by 29 runs helps England to win a series opener. England seamer Freya Davies then struck twice in the first over of the reply to reduce Pakistan to 1-2, with Nahida Khan (0) caught the first ball and Javeria Khan (0) bowled from the fifth.
Sophie Ecclestone took three wickets as she ripped through Pakistan’s middle order. The 2nd T20I will be played on Thursday and Pakistan would want to come back and equalize the series.
Pitch Conditions And Toss:
All the matches played on this surface across the ODI series made on things aptly clear. This is a batting track, a wicket where the ball comes onto the bat squarely to accord the batters all the time in the room and world to send it to the fence. And the side winning the toss will be looking to come out and bat first and make the most of these batting conducive conditions.
