Pakistan vs England, 3rd T20I Match Preview and Fantasy Prediction
England tour of Pakistan
PAK vs ENG, 3rd T20I
Pakistan will clash for the third time against England in the 3rd T20I on Friday, September 23, 2022. Pakistan bounced back in style, defeating England by 10 wickets margin and chasing a huge 200-run target. Skipper Babar Azar led from the front getting back in form and hitting his 2nd T20I century. His partner Mohammad Rizwan smashed 88 runs off just 51 balls. Pakistan’s opening duo on Thursday recorded their highest-ever opening partnership in T20I cricket. Rizwan and Azam shared an unbeaten knock of 203 runs stand against the away team in the 2nd T20I to enlist the record in the books of cricketing history. The previous record was also enlisted by the same duo who shared a 197-run stand for the opening wicket against South Africa on April 14, 2021. Pakistan will now look forward to win the 3rd T20I and take up a 2-1 lead in the 7-match long series.
However, the opening duo of Babar Azam and Mohammad Azam left the middle batting order untested. The Pakistan team would expect better performance from Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, and Asif Ali.
England needs to improve their bowling and just a single poor over from skipper Moeen Ali changed the game. The away team is in a problematic situation with several bowlers injured and England needs to get better in that criteria precisely. Sam Curran and Liam Dawson were excellent in their last match. They maintained a great economy rate but also need wickets to win games.
