England beat Pakistan in second Twenty20 match

10:28 am on 8 September 2010

The England cricketers have beaten Pakistan by 6 wickets in the second Twenty20 international in a match described as completely forgettable, played in front of a very small crowd in Cardiff.

After Pakistan had collapsed to 89 all out from 18.4 overs, England romped to 90 for four with six overs to spare to win the series 2-nil.

The teams will now meet in a five-match 50 overs series.

Pakistan are playing without test captain Salman Butt and pace bowlers Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif who have been suspended from all cricket by the International Cricket Council under its anti-corruption code after an investigation into incidents in the fourth test at Lord's.
