Captain Eoin Morgan belted a thunderous half-century as England chased a record target target at Old Trafford on Sunday to defeat Pakistan by five wickets in the second Twenty20.

Pakistan posted 195 for four in their 20 overs on a flat wicket, but the home side finished their game with five balls to spare and a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Morgan smashed 66 from 33 balls to secure the win at Old Trafford in what is the highest chase in any sort of 20-over cricket.

Jonny Bairstow (44 from 24 balls) and Tom Banton (20 from 16 balls) got their side off to a quick start with an opening stand of 66 out of 38 deliveries but when they fallen to spinner Shadab Khan (3-34) in consecutive balls, the home side tended to wobble.
