The Pakistan team have put up a decent performance in the series so far. The batting from Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan has been outstanding and also the bowling group for Pakistan has stepped up to the task as well.  Pakistan won the fourth T20I against England by a very close margin of just 3 runs and, thereby, levelled the series. The middle-order, though, is a concern and Pakistan would be looking to address that.


England have given a tough fight to Pakistan in this series as they have fought tooth and nail. Their spinners in the form of Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid have done well. Harry Brook has been a find for England in short form cricket. He played a destructive innings in the 3rd T20I, scoring 81 from 35 balls and took England to a big total of 221. As per reports, Jos Buttler is also likely to make his presence felt in the coming games.
