Pakistan will be keen to open their account on this tour by winning the Nottingham T20I. The Men in Green have fond memories of playing T20I cricket at Trent Bridge.

The previous T20I match at Trent Bridge featured England and the West Indies. The visitors batted first and scored 172 runs, courtesy of half-centuries from DR Smith and DJ Bravo. Steven Finn returned with figures of 2/22 in his four overs.

Chasing 173 to win, England lost Craig Kieswetter early, but a 159-run second-wicket partnership between Alex Hales (99) and Ravi Bopara (59) took the home side closer to the target. West Indies dismissed both batsmen in quick succession, but it was too late then.
