Mixed fortunes: England's IT20 record at Emirates Old Trafford

Mixed fortunes: England's IT20 record at Emirates Old Trafford

Following yesterday's 2020 international fixtures announcement, we look at England's T20I record in Manchester ahead of next year's game against Australia

England have endured mixed fortunes in T20 Internationals at Emirates Old Trafford.

In eight games they have won three, lost two and have had three No Results or abandonments, including back-to-back clashes inside three days against Australia in 2009.

We take a look back at how each game played out ahead of England v Australia in 2020. How many of these games do you remember?


13 June 2008: England beat New Zealand by nine wickets

England’s first T20 International at Old Trafford, in 2008, saw Ian Bell star in a convincing nine wicket win over New Zealand.

The Warwickshire cricketer hit an unbeaten 60 runs off 46 balls, scoring nine fours, while Kevin Peterson also hit 42 not out to help Peter Moores' side reach the target of 123.

England had put in a strong bowling performance to restrict their opponents to 123/9, which included two wickets each from James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann.

That performance saw the Kiwis record their lowest ever T20 score at the time, whilst the home team enjoyed a comfortable victory.


31 August 2011: England beat India by six wickets

Eoin Morgan, who captained England to this year’s ICC Cricket World Cup win, played a pivotal role in a six-wicket win over India back in 2011 in what turned out to be a thrilling finish.

The Middlesex cricketer hit 49 runs from a mere 27 balls as his side reached the target of 166 with three balls to spare.

Despite at one stage having a score of 104-1 in the 12th over, India came unstuck and were bowled out for 165, with Jade Dernbach taking a career-best 4/22 while also recording a run out.

England looked to be cruising, requiring 20 from the last three overs, but the India bowlers hit back to leave the England T20 side needing 10 off the last. All-rounder Samit Patel held his nerve, striking three consecutive fours to win the game.


23 June 2015: England beat New Zealand by 56 runs 

England returned in 2015 to face New Zealand for a second time at Emirates Old Trafford and the result once again went in their favour, as Joe Root led his side to a 56-run victory.

Root was the backbone of England's innings, building on a solid start from Jason Roy and Alex Hales to record a 36-ball half-century as England posted 191/7, aided by some late hitting from Sam Billings and Ben Stokes.

Despite looking good after eight overs with a score of 82/2, the Kiwis were bowled out for 135 after 16.2 overs.

It was a successful T20 International debut for Durham paceman Mark Wood, who took three of the New Zealand wickets. 


7 September 2016: Pakistan beat England by nine wickets

England suffered their first T20I defeat at Emirates Old Trafford against Pakistan in 2016.

Wahab Riaz put in a man of the match winning performance, taking three wickets as England were restricted to a score of 135-7. 

The total always looked short of a competitive total and Pakistan made easy work of hunting down that total, losing only one wicket and completing their chase with 31 balls to spare.

Half centuries from Pakistan’s opening batters, Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif, helped them on their way to victory on a poor day for Eoin Morgan's men.

3 July 2018: India beat England by eight wickets

England’s most recent T20 International at Emirates Old Trafford ended in defeat at the hands of India.

The hosts batted first, with Jos Buttler top scoring with 69 runs on his home ground, and were well placed for a big total before the intervention of wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav.

Yadav bamboozled England's middle order in taking 5/24, including three in one over, as England could only muster 159.

Man of the Match, KL Rahul, made a sensational unbeaten century to ease India home.

The 27-year-old hit 101, with Virat Kohli completing the chase with a six to hand India an eight-wicket victory.
