Today (Sunday) at 7:30 p.m. local time, the thrilling series-deciding T20I PAK VS ENG match between Pakistan and England will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium. With the series poised on a razor’s edge and each team holding a 3-2 advantage, the decisive game promises to be a nail-biter.
Due to the dew, it will be tough for the team bowling second to apply pressure, so both teams will be hoping to win the toss at 7:00 p.m. Pakistan have to significantly raise their game if they want to win the final game and the series. They struggled in their most recent match and will need to play much better to beat England at home.
A great game is guaranteed if even one of their hitters can repeat Phil Salt’s feat. England’s leading run-getter is Ben Duckett, who has 203 runs at a strike rate of 159. He has only hit one six and 28 fours. Harry Brook has scored 192 runs and has a 164 slugging percentage. Mark Wood, England’s finest bowler, has taken six wickets at an economy rate of 5.50 and an average of 7.
PAK VS ENG | The Final Encounter!
Pakistan hopes to see big runs from their captain, Babar Azam. Since he is one of the top batsmen in the world, his team needs him to perform at a high level to win. Even if Babar had a great day at the office on Friday, Pakistan was not at their best. Mohammad Rizwan and Haris Rauf’s return strengthens an already formidable squad. The Pakistani team is led by Rizwan, who has scored 315 runs with a strike rate of 140.
Throughout his innings, he has hit 23 fours and 10 sixes. Babar has scored 281 runs with a 144 w.p.i. Strike rate. Haris Rauf is Pakistan’s best bowler, with an average of 20 and an economy rate of 8.25. He has taken 8 wickets. At an average of 36, Mohammad Nawaz has taken 5 wickets. After a dominant eight-wicket victory against Pakistan in their previous encounter, England will be eager to keep their momentum going.
England’s opener Phil Salt stepped up throughout that chase, with support from Alex Hales; the pair laid a good platform for their total, while David Willey and Sam Curran did well with the ball. In game six of the series, England was nearly at its dominant batting best.
Averaging 24, Curran has taken six wickets. Since both teams’ schedules coincide on Sunday, a competitive game should ensue. Batters fare better than spinners on the Gaddafi Stadium surface. When past games are considered, it becomes clear that batters have had less trouble here. It is expected to be partly cloudy and 33 degrees Celsius with a humidity of roughly 60 percent, so there should be no problems with the weather.
