The second and final leg of the Pakistan cricket team’s tour of England will start with the first match of the T20 series on Friday.
So far, Pakistan’s tour of England has been heavy with rain and the host team’s weight, but now England will compete with the best cricket team in the world in a short format, which cricket fans hope for the best cricket.
This will be the first short format cricket series after the global corona virus.
Pakistan, the number one team in the T20 rankings, will take to the field in Manchester on Friday to give the visiting team a tough time in the short format.
Unlike the Test series, captain Babar Azam has a squad of experienced bowlers and batsmen.
After the inclusion of Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez in the T20 squad, the visiting team will not have to face inexperience like in the Test series.
After these short-form players, Team Pakistan will look in a new color, but England captain Ian Morgan will also be eager to take full advantage of the home conditions.
Haider Ali, a talented youngster from Pakistan, is also likely to make his debut against England. After his stellar performance in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup and Pakistan Super League, Haider Ali will also have a rare opportunity to show his essence in international cricket.
On the other hand, the host team led by Morgan will have a strong batting line-up with T20 specialists like Johnny Barstow, Joey Dunley and David Valley. With the presence of an all-rounder like Chris Jordan, England has the potential to compete with the number one team in the T20.
Haider Ali’s teammate Matt Tom Bunton, who represented Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League in the England squad, will also have players capable of playing smoky innings.
Tom Bunton managed to make a place in the English team after a great performance in England county cricket and thanks to this he also represented Peshawar Zalmi in the PSL but in international cricket Tom Bunton is still eager to score runs. ۔
Comparing the two teams, both teams have an experienced batting line-up. However, Pakistan’s bowling line-up looks stronger than that of England, but both teams have players who are capable of turning the tide of a match alone.
What does the weather forecast say?
Like the Test series, the T20 match could also be affected by rain. Rain is also forecast during the first T20 match due to which there is a possibility of a few overs less. In this case, the importance of the toss has increased.
Manchester’s wicket is considered to be a favorable pitch for the Twenty20, which gives the batsmen ample opportunity to show their essence with the fast bowlers.
Manchester’s field has always been conducive for Pakistan, but in the T20 matches between Pakistan and England, England’s weight on the overall bore has been heavy.
So far a total of 15 T20 matches have been played between the two teams in which England has won 11 times while Pakistan has won only 4 times.
