Pakistan will be desperate to end their tour on a winning note as the under-fire side take on red-hot England in the do-or-die third and final T20I of the series. Having lost the Test series by 1-0, the visitors have not won any game so far on the tour. On other hand, England will be looking to continue their fine run in the ongoing home season.
After an unimpressive batting display in the washed-out first T20I, England put up a commendable effort in the second. Led by their talismanic captain Eoin Morgan’s blistering fifty, the hosts chased down 195 to take an unassailable lead in the series. England will be looking to improve their bowling especially in the powerplay as they will be looking to continue their winning run before taking on Australia in the upcoming ODI and T20I series.
As far as Pakistan are concerned, they did well with the bat and could have scored more but their lackluster bowling undid their efforts with the bat. Pakistan not only have the series at stake but also their pride as they would be looking to leave England on a winning note.
