Match Preview

ENG vs PAK: The third T20 international between England and Pakistan will be played on September 23rd, 2022 in Karachi. Post-Pakistan’s thumping victory in the second game yesterday, the series is now level at 1-1.

Pakistan redeemed itself in the second T20 against England. They registered a remarkable 10-wicket win. Naseem Shah missed out due to niggle, and Mohammad Hasnain opened the bowling for Pakistan. However, the bowling unit failed to make an impact. The duo of Moeen Ali and Ben Duckett rattled the pacers and posted a score of 199 on the board.

England was confident of a win, but Pakistani openers were all set to spoil the party. The intent was clear in the first over itself. Mohammad Rizwan took his time, but his partner and Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam went absolutely bonkers. He registered his second T20 century in just 66 balls. They made a mockery of every bowler in the unit. Pakistan chased down the target without losing a single wicket. The duo put together the record of the highest-ever opening stand for Pakistan in the T20s.

Pitch Report for ENG vs PAK

Pitch would most likely stay the same, just like yesterday. However, it could be slightly used and worn. So, spinners can make use of it. Dew factor could play out too. Hence, bowling first is a wise option. Another high-scoring game could not be ruled out. 

Probable Playing XI


Philip Salt(wicket-keeper), Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali(captain), Sam Curran, David Willey, Liam Dawson, Adil Rashid, Luke Wood


Mohammad Rizwan(wicket-keeper), Babar Azam(captain), Haider Ali, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Usman Qadir, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain, Shahnawaz Dahani

Match Predictions for ENG vs PAK

In these two games, both teams displayed impressive muscle power. Bowling is a concern for both teams and the pitch surface has not helped them much. For England, the spinners need to adapt to the conditions. They need to maintain discipline in line and length. The home team, Pakistan, on the other hand, just has to carry on the momentum forward. Bowling, which is their strong suit, needs to improve. The middle order was not exposed in the second game but is still a concern. Their dependence on the openers needs to be reduced. Overall, England might win this game.
