PAK vs ENG, 5th T20I

Preview

Pakistan will host England for the fifth time in the seven-game T20I series. The match is scheduled at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on 28th September 2022. Out of 4 matches, the wins are equally distributed between the two opponents. 

While Pakistan has won two of the games, but are still struggling with their middle batting order. Khushdil Shah, Haider Ali and Iftikhar Ahmed failed to signify their presence in the team. The team’s batting order is mostly dependent on the services of the opening pair of Mohammed Rizwan and skipper Babar Azam. Shah Masood has also impressed with his magnificent half-century and hopefully, the management will think of providing the southpaw with ample chances. 

England will continue without the services of their regular skipper Jos Buttler. Although it is assumed that Buttler will return to the squad for the last two T20I matches. Nevertheless, Moeen Ali has led the team pretty well, and young players like Ben Duckett and Harry Brook have grabbed their chances. The bowling side may be slightly worrisome and the visitors would definitely try to learn from their mistakes and get better in their department.
