ENG vs PAK Team Previews


England will be pretty happy with the way they performed on Saturday. They were in control of the proceedings for the most part and in the end secured a comfortable win.

As the team looks to fine-tune its playing eleven for the upcoming World Cup in the Caribbean, they will be stoked particularly with the bowling effort. Jofra Archer, who made a comeback to the international arena after more than a decade, was in fine touch as he picked important wickets of Imad Wasim and Azam Khan.

He was well supported by Chris Jordan and Reece Topley, with the latter scalping 3 wickets. Another plus for the team is the form of Jos Buttler. The skipper continued with his good form from the IPL and scored an impressive 84 from just 51 balls.

He will once again open the batting with Phil Salt, while the likes of Will Jacks, Liam Livingstone, Harry Brook, and Johnny Bairstow will feature in the middle order. The England batting lineup is incredibly strong, especially in home conditions. 

They are the team to back for the Most Sixes, Most Fours, and sessions bets in the powerplay.

With most of the players on this tour making the cut for the 15-member T20 World Cup squad, all eyes will now be on the team’s performance as they look to build up a winning momentum.

While it was a decent bowling effort from the visitors, more will be expected from Mohammad Amir and Shadab Khan. The duo went wicketless and conceded 89 runs in their 8 overs. On the positive side, Shaheen Shah Afridi seemed unperturbed by the off-field commotion and picked up 3 wickets.

Imad Wasim and Haris Rauf bowled well too to pick up 2 wickets each. The same however cannot be said about the batting. Mohammad Rizwan was dismissed for a duck, while Saim Ayub has been unable to replicate his PSL form on the international stage.

Looking at his form, the team should consider promoting Babar Azam to the opening slot to try and get the team off to a strong start. There are a couple of quality players in the middle order in the form of Fakhar Zaman and Azam Khan, while all-rounders Imad Wasim, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Shadab Khan add depth to the batting. 

There was some talk from Fakhar Zaman that the Pakistani team will look to score 200 in each match. Maybe we get to see that intent on the pitch in this 3rd T20 international. <br />

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Sophia Gardens isn’t the easiest to bat on. The average first-inning score in the 9 T20I played here is around 150, which can be considered a par score. There is an even covering of grass on the surface which allows the quicker bowlers to get some movement through the air as well as off the seam.

Anything over 170 will be difficult to chase. The weather in Cardiff is likely to remain overcast throughout the day and there are chances of showers interrupting the play. 


ENG vs PAK Betting Tips

According to most betting sites, England is the favorite to win this match and we see no reason to bet against them. They have a well-balanced squad with most of the players in good form. On the other hand, Pakistan hasn’t been in the best of forms of late and will find it difficult to bounce back.

Bet on England to win.

    Jos Buttler to be the top batsman for England



Buttler has been in good form in T20s. He has scored 3 half-centuries in his last 4 T20 internationals and has also scored 2 centuries in his recent IPL sojourn. Looking at his form, Buttler has a good chance of playing yet another good knock.

  1. Parimatch


    Shaheen Afridi to be the top bowler for Pakistan



Afridi has bowled brilliantly in his last few T20 internationals. He has picked up at least 3 wickets in 5 of his last 7 outings and was the top bowler in each of those games. With such mouthwatering odds on offer, backing Afridi to be the top bowler is a no-brainer.
