Pakistan vs England
7th T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 02 Oct, 08:00 PM (IST)
Series: 7th T20 Match
Venue: Gaddafi Stadium – Lahore, Pakistan
PAK vs ENG Dream11 Prediction:
- Mohammad Rizwan was rested for Friday’s game but we expect him back at the top of the order and to be Pakistan’s highest run scorer in this match. Haris Rauf was also rested for the sixth game of the series but will return to the team for the decider. He has been the most consistent bowler throughout and he is our tip for Pakistan’s top wicket taker.
- Phil Salt produced his best IT20 innings on Friday and we are backing him to be England’s highest run scorer on Sunday. Mark Wood is expected to come into England’s team and the pace bowler is our recommendation for their top wicket taker in this IT20.
- Pakistan have scored the most sixes in each game of the series and we suggest backing them to do the same in this final match.

Weather & Pitch Report:
There will be no rain or cloud cover during this match in Lahore. The temperature will drop to 28 degrees with the humidity level climbing as the game progresses.
The pitch was a little slower on Friday and any short balls with pace were very easy to strike to the boundary. We expect more pace in this wicket for the series decider.
There has only been one match during the series when the captain has won the toss and chosen to bat first. With the evening dew, It would be a big surprise if either skipper decided to bat first.

PAK Team News:
With the chance to complete a series victory, it was quite a surprise to see Mohammad Rizwan and Haris Rauf (Pakistan’s leading run scorer and wicket taker) rested on Friday. Both players will come back into the side for this game and we expect Shahnawaz Dahani and Mohammad Haris to make way.
ENG Team News:
Chris Woakes and Mark Wood were both rested for Friday’s game with Reece Topley and Richard Gleeson coming back into the team. With the series still in play, we expect both Wood and Woakes to return with Gleeson and David Willey dropping out.
PAK vs ENG Pre-Toss LineUps:
Mohammad Rizwan (wk)
Babar Azam (c)
Phil Salt (wk)
This has been a fantastic series with both teams contributing dominant wins alongside some very closely contested games. We expect Pakistan and England to both be at nearly full strength for this game and are predicting a very tight match. Overall, we are backing England to win.
England are favorites to beat Pakistan at the odds.
PAK Key Players:
the right-handed opener was missed on Friday with none of the other top four batters able to stay with captain Babar Azam. Rizwan averages 53.76 in this format.
the skipper has had an up and down September with some disappointing Asia Cup performances as well as some big scores. He hit 87 not out on Friday.
the right arm fast bowler has caused England’s batters problems throughout the series. He has picked up eight dismissals from five matches.
ENG Key Players:
the keeper-batter was in destructive batting form in the sixth game of the series. He scored 16 boundaries in his unbeaten 41-ball innings.
the young middle-order player was not required to bat on Friday due to the runs coming from the top order. He will have benefitted from the rest and will be looking to add to his 192 runs in the series so far.
the pace bowler has picked up the wicket of Babar Azam and Haider Ali in both matches that he has played. He is the quickest bowler on either team.
PAK vs ENG Team Forms:
PAK Team Form:
Pakistan have won two and lost two of their last four matches in the series. However, their bowling was very ineffective on Friday.
ENG Team Form:
England avoided their third successive defeat in this series on Friday and the batting form of their top order will give the rest of the team plenty of confidence.
