A rain-affected match between England and Pakistan eventually ended in a draw in Southampton.

England had a brilliant turn around in the first match against Pakistan after they eventually won the match by 3 wickets to go 1-0 up in the series. England though would be without Ben Stokes who has opted out of the series due to family issues. The hosts would be looking to take an unassailable lead while Pakistan would seek to equalise the series in Southampton.
