Pakistan vs England Third Test, Match Prediction

by Himmat Singh Digital Marketer

Pakistan and England Series 2020 lock horns in the final test of the series, part of the ICC World Test Championship.

Team Preview

England and Pakistan will meet again in Southampton for the final Test of the series. England have taken an unassailable lead in the series after the thrilling win at Manchester in first Test. The second Test match was washed out. England needs a draw to clinch the series and a win can take them ahead of the Australia in the points table of ICC World Test Championship. In the washed out game, England bowled Pakistan out on 236 to draw some positives and Crawley also got runs to give visitors a relief in top-order. Pakistan could retain Fawad Alam again after the failure in his comeback Test. England is likely to go ahead with the same XI, played in the last affair. Jofra Archer could get the game if England try out the extra pacer but it looks dull here. Azahar Ali’s form is also creating a tension for team management. If their bowling unit displays the similar performance, they showed in Manchester, it would be a great comeback story for Pakistan to end the series with a happy note.

Pitch Report

The Rose Bowl, Southampton will host this Test match with a rain forecast. The heavy rainfall is already predicted so it might be a two-day affair. Pacers will have an advantage in overcast condition and bowling first would be a good idea after winning the toss.
