The England National Cricket Team will take on Pakistan in the 3rd T20I of the 3-match series at the Emirates Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester. The first match of the series was washed away due to rain and England won the second match by a handsome margin as captain Eoin Morgan’s heroics helped the hosts scale a mammoth chase.
Pakistan batsmen looked in great shape in the last T20I but the bowlers couldn’t deliver as the English batsmen thrashed the visitors all around the park. Consequently, even after scoring 195 runs in the first innings, the visitors ended up on the losing end by 5 wickets. Having already lost the Test series, Pakistan will look to register at least one win on their so-far tedious tour to England.

However, if rain interrupts play, the match will not be washed out completely. The rain has played a spoilsport throughout the tour and cricket fans will only pray that the final match of the tour does not get washed away.
