MANCHESTER: England captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to field in the second Twenty20 international against Pakistan at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Both teams were unchanged from the sides that played out a no result in Friday's first of a three-match series in Manchester, where rain ended the match with England 131-6 off 16.1 overs and Pakistan yet to bat.

England's total featured opener Tom Banton's dashing 71, with the 21-year-old Somerset batter given another chance to impress on Saturday following his maiden Twenty20 international fifty.
