Pakistan tour of England 2020: England Vs Pakistan, Third T20I

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: England and Pakistan faced off in run feast in the second T20I match with England emerging as winners. England has a strong batting line-up with players capable of scoring runs at rapid pace till No.7. Pakistan has very little spice after the top-3 and will be bound to struggle if 2-3 wickets fall early. The bowlers were reduced to mere machines last match. We expect England to win this match owing to their batting strength. 

Pitch Conditions: Batsmen were making runs for fun here on a flat track with very less support to bowlers. We can expect another high scoring contest in this match too. 

Toss Prediction: England chased down almost 200 runs with an over to spare and no target is safe here. Chasing is the best option if you win the toss. .

ENGLAND: Eoin Morgan (C), Johnny Bairstow (Wk), Dawid Malan, Sam Billings, David Willey, Moeen Ali, Tom Banton, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood/ Tom Curran, Lewis Gregory

PAKISTAN: Babar Azam (C), Mohammed Rizwan (Wk), Fakhar Zaman, Ifthikar Ahmed, Mohammed Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Shoaib Malik, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammed Amir/Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan
