Buttler says England will ‘lift spirits’ on tour of flood-hit Pakistan

England triumphed in the opening T20 of this seven-match series on Tuesday after beating Pakistan by six wickets with four balls to spare. Moeen Ali – captain of the tourists in place of injured Jos Buttler – won the coin toss and opted to play first. Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam went 85 for the first wicket but tight bowling from Adil Rashid (2-27) and Luke Wood (3-24) limited the hosts at 158-7.

In response, England never looked out of control despite losing wickets just as they were gaining the upper hand. Alex Hales – recalled to the side for the first time in three years – was top scorer with 53 from 40 balls, but it was Harry Brook (42*) who provided the impetus throughout the second half of the chase that got England over the line.

Tuesday’s pitch was a slow track that offered little for setters, especially those without a fast pace. England’s fastest bowler Wood got his accolades but David Willey and Sam Curran – who rely more on the swing – struggled. That being the case, it wouldn’t be surprising if England changed sides and brought in Reece Topley for an extra rebound, Olly Stone for extra pace, or even Liam Dawson as a third rotation option. Again, why change a winning team?

Hales describes ‘special feeling’ after returning to England squad

Alex Hales had to wait three years for a return to international play after failing two recreational drug tests in 2019 which severed his relationship with England captain for one day Eoin Morgan.

Morgan said at the time that he had lost faith in Hales’ ability to contribute positively to the team off the pitch as well as on it. Following Morgan’s retirement and an overhaul of England’s management group – Jos Buttler is the new captain and Matthew Mott is head coach for a day – Hales has been brought back into the squad.

He repaid their faith with a 53-game winner on Tuesday to earn England victory in the opening game of this seven-game T20 series and described what it was like to be back in the fold after victory.

“It was a very special feeling to be back in the park for England,” Hales told Sky Sports after the game. “Three years felt like an eternity to me. Going out and scoring 50 goals on my return to a winning team is the stuff dreams are made of.

“It’s a nice feeling. Guys have said in the past it was never cricket, missing the three years was never in doubt. But there were always nerves and pressure that came back after three years. It was like a debut again, so it was a very special night.

“It’s like a dream come true to contribute with half a century in a winning team in a country where I have a lot of special fond memories.”


Alex Hales leads England to win Pakistan on return from international exile

Alex Hales celebrated the end of his international exile with a crucial half-century as England’s first game in Pakistan for nearly 17 years ended in victory in the inaugural T20.

The fly-half completed 53 from 40 in his first England outing since March 2019, when he was dropped following a failed recreational drug test, and marked the end of his stay in the desert paving the way for a six-wicket success. .

England had previously done well to limit the hosts to 158 for seven in front of a sold-out crowd of 35,000 at the National Stadium in Karachi, with debutant Luke Wood claiming an impressive three for 24.

Hales, back in his old opening slot, took his team within 17 of the winning line and reached seven boundaries before going halfway through with the end in sight. Harry Brook finished the job with a fluid 42 not eliminated, including the four winners of the final.


Pakistan v England

Hello and welcome to The Independents coverage of the second T20 between England and Pakistan.

The visitors triumphed in the opener of this seven-match series after limiting Babar Azam’s side to just 158-7 from their 20 overs despite a well-worked 68 from fly-half Mohammad Rizwan. In response, Alex Hales scored 53 on his return to the side and Harry Brook finished 42* to lead England to a six-wicket victory with four balls to spare.

Today’s game is played again in Karachi with the ground expected to be slow and flat again. This knowledge could see the team make changes to their rosters to better suit the conditions with suitors Reece Topley, Liam Dawson and Olly Stone coming in for England.

Elsewhere, the ECB have released their High Performance Review which aims to shake up the national and domestic calendar with the ultimate aim of creating the best England men’s team possible. The review – led by former England captain and ex-ECB director Andrew Strauss – recommended a number of (some controversial) changes in the name of improving performance in England and Wales.

We’ll explore more of what all of this means as we prepare for the start of the game in Karachi with the second T20 between Pakistan and England due to kick off at 15:30 BST.
