Pakistan was thrashed by England in the second T20, and the series is currently tied at 1-1. The final will be played in Manchester, and we believe both sides will be relieved to be able to play such high-pressure games before the T20 World Cup.
Pakistan made no changes to its roster for the second T20 international, and we don’t expect it to modify its lineup anytime soon. England, on the other side, made some changes, including removing the captain for the second match!
England has made it obvious that it intends to rotate players, so we may see some surprising alterations once more. We always think that the more things change, the more betting chances there are!
The game will take place on July 20, 2021, at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.

England vs Pakistan Team Previews
For the preceding match, England welcomed back Jos Buttler, Chris Jordan, and Adil Rashid, which substantially shifted the tide in its favor. Buttler hit a wonderful 59, Rashid took two wickets for 30 runs in four overs, and while Chris Jordan didn’t have to do much, having a guy like him on the team is excellent.
Tom Banton and Jake Ball are the only two players who have yet to be given a shot in the series, and they may be given one as well.
We can expect some things from all of England’s players, regardless of who they pick. They plan to target Pakistani bowling, smash a lot of sixes, and aim to utilize spin to attack with the ball.
When opposed to Pakistan, England’s batting is considerably superior. It hit more sixes and fours, and you can bet on similar things in the third match as well. We believe you will have a good probability of winning.
It is also apparent that England is considering spin to win the T20 World Cup. In this sense, Adil Rashid, Matt Parkinson, Liam Livingstone, and Moeen Ali provide several choices. Saqib Mahmood was outstanding with the ball once more, and Tom Curran had a great comeback in the previous match.
This England squad has no major flaws, and you can expect it to perform at a consistently high level on most days.

We do not believe Pakistan would change its team for this encounter unless Hasan Ali is healthy and eligible for selection. Changing too many things around is not something this Pakistani team management has done in the past, and we don’t believe there are too many good choices to explore.
Pakistan’s batting lineup is still largely reliant on Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. In the last encounter, Sohaib Maqsood, Fakhar Zaman, and Mohammad Hafeez all failed to create an impression. The management must be concerned about the lack of consistency among these three players, especially as the T20 World Cup approaches.
Azam Khan is too fresh to the international circuit to pass judgment, but based on what we’ve seen so far, he’s not yet ready for the big stage.
When Babar Azam scores, Pakistan’s batting is formidable, but it suffers when he is out. We don’t believe there is much question about this.
The bowling lineup took a beating in the last encounter. That was similar to the first match, but unlike then, Pakistan did not have a large total to defend. Haris Rauf has been unusually pricey, and Shaheen Afridi has been dishing out more freebies than normal.
Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan are typically reliable in T29 cricket, but the England batters have taken them to the cleaners. The Pakistani bowling squad has to come up with some new ideas or face being thrown to the sword once more.

Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan (vice-captain), Arshad Iqbal, Azam Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk), Shaheen Shah Afridi, Sharjeel Khan, and Usman Qadir
England vs Pakistan Toss Prediction
Even though the team batting first has won both matches so far, the side that wins the toss is likely to prefer to field first.
England vs Pakistan Pitch and Conditions
The weather prognosis for this match is great, with no rain predicted in Manchester on match day. The Old Trafford field is always highly high-scoring. We anticipate a batting display with many sixes and boundaries as batters target the short boundaries.
Another match in which 200 is scored in both innings is possible.
England vs Pakistan Betting Tips
Even if it is not playing its strongest squad, England is a considerably stronger team than Pakistan. The English batting lineup’s strength and depth allow them to attack without halting, which is tough to defend against. Pakistan is far too reliant on Babar Azam to remain competitive, and even if he is a world-class player, he cannot score runs in every match.
England is the favorite to win.
