The Test series between England and Pakistan was a different ball game for the visitors. England came from behind to clinch the first Test match of the three-match series. The hosts also won the series 1-0 after the rain had interrupted the last two Test matches.

Pakistan had their moments. The men in green had batted decently enough to challenge England at Old Trafford. But Azhar and his men lacked intensity in their second innings. Pakistan managed only 169 runs in their 2nd innings, and when England was under pressure, the bowlers gave away easy runs to Buttler and Woakes, which allowed the downfall for the Pakistanis.

Both the teams will gear up for the three-match series, which will be played from 28th August 2020. The first T20 International match of this three-match T20 series will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester.

England’s Team Preview

England is a strong side in whichever format that they play at home. This England team, under their limited over captain Eoin Morgan, is a team to beat. The hosts will be without Jose Buttler and Jofra Archer for this series. But still, the side looks good.

Johnny Bairstow and Jason Roy are a formidable opening pair in the limited-overs. But Roy will be missing this entire series due to injury and Bairstow is the one player to watch out for from England’s camp. He has been in good form of late. He also smashed the fastest half-century to his name.

Then the middle order has players like Skipper Morgan who can hit the ball a long way. With the captain, Sam Billings will be in the playing XI after he had a good One Day series against Ireland, and Tom Banton and Dawid Malan are the other players who may get a nod for the 1st T20I.

England’s all-rounder David Willey had a terrific series ODI series against Ireland. He indeed is the leader of the pace bowling attack for England in the absence of Jofra Archer. Moeen Ali will lead the spin department because he can give England the depth in their batting.

The other two bowlers in England’s squad will be Tom Curran and Saqlain Mehmood, even though this England squad is not a full-strength side. But still, Morgan and his men can challenge any team at home. For England, this series will also help them to prepare for the limited-overs series against Australia. The Aussies will tour England to play 3 T20Is and 3 ODI series from 4th September 2020.

Pakistan’s Team Preview

Pakistan, on the other hand, will look to bounce back from their Test series loss. Apart from the first Test match’s 1st innings, Pakistan didn’t bat well enough to stay in the hunt. Now Pakistan’s new T20 skipper Babar Azam will have to take up the responsibility to take his team over the line. Azam will be facing an experienced T20 captain and a fantastic T20 Team.

Azam has the best batsman for Pakistan in the shortest format. The other players like Fakhar Zaman, Mohd Hafeez, and Haider Ali are talented, but it won’t easy to counter the line and lengths which England’s bowlers will bowl to the visitors. The match may depend on how Pakistan will play the first six overs.

That’s is why the visitors should include the former captain Sohaib Mallik in their squad. Mallik is an experienced player, and his expertise can help a young captain like Babar Azam. Pakistan’s weak line is their batting. But the bowlers will do a decent job as bowling has been the real strength of the Pakistanis. Mohd Amir will be back in action, and he will bowl with the new ball, which may impose a serve threat to the hosts. Shaheen Shah Afridi and Wahab Riaz will be the new ball partners for Amir.
