PAK vs ENG Match Prediction - Oct 02, 2022

What a T20 series we have witnessed between Pakistan and England. The score is even at 3-3 coming into this final match and choosing between the teams has been quite tough. Pakistan was without its two best T20 players (Mohammad Rizwan and Haris Rauf) in the previous match and found itself to be short of firepower without them. 

We expect them to be back for this match. England, on the other hand, continued to rocket along and set new standards of batting in the T20 game. Will they pick their strongest team for the decider or continue to experiment?

The cricket betting sites have England as the favorites for this match. Let us have a closer look.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Pakistan vs England 7th T20 2022. The match will be played at the Gadaffi Stadium, Lahore on the 2nd of August 2022.

PAK vs ENG Team Previews


Pakistan was shown its batting limitations quite clearly in the previous match. While its batters struggled to get boundaries and only another Babar special got the team to something remotely defendable, England made a mockery of the target. 

We think Mohammad Rizwan is all but certain to walk back into the team in place of Mohammad Haris or Haider Ali. If it is indeed Ali that is replaced then Haris will have to play in the middle order. Either way, every single Pakistani batter will be under pressure to score faster and take more risks. 

The bowling should be bolstered by the return of Haris Rauf for this match in place of Shahnawaz Dahani who is struggling in international cricket. The spin bowling options are good but were ineffective with dew making the ball wet in the previous match. Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz have a massive amount of responsibility on their shoulders. 

One thing that Pakistan can be quite happy about is the batting depth it has right now. They have reliable batting up to number 9 and that is not something many teams around the world can boast of. 

Pakistan Playing 11

Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain.


England bowled very well in conditions that were quite foreign and then absolutely crushed the chase. It looked as if England was batting on a completely different surface as it scored at a ridiculous rate and chased down 170 under 15 overs. 

The fact that England can pick up any batter or any bowler in its squad and dominate a team like Pakistan is scary. 

It is next to impossible to try and guess which eleven players will turn up for England. The team has been changed consistently with only the middle order of Duckett, Brook, and Ali remaining steady. We hope to see Mark Wood back in action for this crucial match, Hales keep his place, and Gleeson get another go. 

Irrespective of who plays, England's batting approach is going to be all guns blazing. Its bowling could struggle if it has to bowl second, though, and that is the risk here.

PAK vs ENG Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss will want to chase. We saw how dew made a significant difference in the batting conditions for the two teams in the previous match and that will influence the captains for sure. 

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain predicted for match day and so we should have no interruptions. The pitch in Lahore has been slow and helpful for the spinners. We have also seen that batters have struggled to get value for their shots once the ball gets a bit old. Making the most of the powerplay is going to be essential. 

Dew is expected to play a major role once more and the chasing team will have a big advantage. Take that into consideration while placing your bets.

PAK vs ENG Betting Tips

We are going to bet on England to win. We hope to see them play their best eleven which should be more than enough to overpower Pakistan. The lack of batting firepower could force Pakistan to make more risks than normal and end up losing some wickets. While Pakistan's spinners are superior, England showed no fear of them in the previous match. 

Without knowing what the toss holds, we would recommend backing England in this contest.

Bet on England to win.

Salt is in terrific form and by his own admission, has been striking the ball beautifully. With a big score behind him, he is only going to grow in confidence. We love backing players in good form and think Over 18.5 is a good option for this match

    Shadab Khan (2.20)


Shadab Khan was the only bowler that was able to ask a few difficult questions in the previous match. If gets a dry ball and a helpful surface, he is going to be all the more dangerous. He could quite easily come through for you in this bet.
