Pakistan may make two changes for 3rd T20I vs England

Pakistan has to win this match and make a big comeback, failing which they would lose the series. Meanwhile, Pakistan is probably going to make two lineup changes for today’s crucial encounter. Usman Khan, Abrar Ahmed, or Naseem Shah may replace the discarded Shadab Khan and Saim Ayub.

Shadab gave up fifty-five runs in the second Twenty20 International. Saim Ayub, meanwhile, struck two runs in seven balls in the same game. Nevertheless, depending on the pitch and circumstances, the ultimate choice will be made before toss.

But there are also some big alterations in the England lineup; Jos Buttler’s paternity leave prevents him from leading the team. Moeen Ali will so succeed him as captain.

In the second Twenty20 International, Buttler, 33, played a captain’s knock and, with the aid of eight fours and three sixes, scored 84 runs on 51 balls. He became only the ninth player in the shorter format to score 3,000 runs in Twenty20 International cricket throughout the process.

About Cardiff’s weather after Leeds, it is now raining sporadically, but it should clear up two hours before the evening game. Babar Azam and company chased a 184-run mark in the second Twenty20 International encounter, but were knocked out for 160. In their previous eleven Twenty20 Internationals against Pakistan, England had won eight.

With the aid of three fours and five sixes, left-handed batsman Fakhar Zaman scored an amazing 45 runs off just 21 balls for Pakistan in a losing cause. Second-highest run-getter Babar Azam scored 32 runs on 26 balls.

Even though Iftikhar Ahmed (23 off 17) and Imad Wasim (22 off 13) down the order contributed important runs, they were insufficient to help Pakistan win.
