Highest score in an England vs Pakistan T20 match

Pakistan’s score of 232 for 6 at Trent Bridge in 2021 is the record highest score in a T20 match England vs Pakistan.

Having been sent into bat on a belter of a pitch at Trent Bridge with one particularly short boundary, Pakistan started well but took a fairly conservative approach during the first half of their innings which belied the destruction that was to follow later on. Indeed in a match in which both sides recorded 25 sixes in total, Pakistan didn’t hit one maximum until the 11th over of their innings.

Captain Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan put on a record partnership in T20 cricket for Pakistan vs England with 150 inside the 15th over and with so many wickets in hand the middle order had free license to play their shots with some massive hitting as Shoaib Maqsood, Fakhar Zaman and Mohammed Hafeez all played cameos that helped lift Pakistan to what was their record highest score in T20 cricket.

The lowest score in an England vs Pakistan T20 match was recorded by Pakistan in 2010 when they were bowled out for 89 in a match that took place at Sophia Gardens.

This match occurred soon after the Test series in which several Pakistan players were implicated in spot fixing claims meaning that not only were the side short of several key players but were in the midst of the scandal that the deliberate no-ball bowling had caused.

Having won the toss and elected to bat under heavy cloud cover Pakistan were bowled out by England for a record low total of just 89 in the 2nd of this 2 match series in 2010 which saw both fixtures played at Sophia Gardens. England’s seamers ran through the Pakistan top order with Tim Bresnan finishing with 3 wickets and Broad, Sidebottom and Swann all getting 2 a piece.

Top score by a batsman in England vs Pakistan T20 fixture

The top score by a batsmen in England vs Pakistan T20 head to head matches was made by Liam Livingstone who scored 103 in a game that took place at Trent Bridge in 2021.

Livingstone’s individual T20 record in ENG vs PAK T20 matches came in the same game that Pakistan posted the record T20 total in head to head matches between these 2 nations. With England needing 233 to win they always needed to come out swinging and while Livingstone was at the crease they had an outside chance of pulling off what would have been a record run chase in a T20 match vs Pakistan as well as for England as a whole.

Livingstone ultimately fell in the 17th over but by that time he had reached several milestones beyond the record score in a T20 match England vs Pakistan including the fastest fifty and fastest hundred made by an England batsmen an T20 cricket from 17 and 42 balls respectively. Livingstone’s record knock included an incredible 6 x 4s and 9 x 6s.

Watch highlights of Livingstone’s Trent Bridge T20 record as part of Pakistan’s record total above.

Mohammed Hafeez hold the record for the highest for Pakistan vs England in T20 matches with the 86 he made at Old Trafford in 2020.

Best bowling figures in England vs Pakistan T20 fixtures

The best bowling figures in a T20 match involving England and Pakistan was recorded by Saeed Ajmal who took 4 for 23 in a match played at Abu Dhabi in 2012.

Ajmal, so often a mystery to England’s batsmen, was called into the attack for the 5th over after England had made a solid if not spectacular start to their innings and immediately claimed the wicket of Craig Kieswetter.

It was the 13th over before Ajmal returned but when he did he claimed another wicket in each of his remaining 3 overs, bowling a total of 13 dot balls and helping to reduce England to their lowest score against in a T20 game against Pakistan.

The best figures for an England bowler vs Pakistan in T20 cricket are Tim Bresnan’s 3 for 10 recorded in 2010 at Sophia Gardens.
