ENG vs PAK Match Prediction, 3rd T20I – Who will win today’s match

England took a 1-0 lead over Pakistan following victory at Edgbaston this past weekend, but will be without captain Jos Buttler on paternity leave as the series moves to Cardiff on Tuesday.

England’s Form: England triumphed at Edgbaston, taking a 1-0 lead with a ten-wicket victory. The star of the match, Jos Buttler, scored 84 off 51 balls, setting up a total of 184. Jofra Archer’s return was spectacular, picking up two crucial wickets. However, England will be without Buttler in Cardiff, with Moeen Ali stepping in as captain.

Pakistan’s Form: Pakistan faced a challenging chase at Edgbaston, losing early wickets and eventually falling short, being bowled out for 160. To win the series, Pakistan must win the next two matches. Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman showed promise with the bat, but consistency will be key in Cardiff.

Betting Analysis

England Betting Tips:

  • Will Jacks: Following a strong IPL season and a solid performance in the second T20I, Jacks is a prime candidate for most match 6s. His boundary-clearing prowess makes him a valuable bet.
  • Reece Topley: Known for his knack for crucial wickets, Topley’s left-arm pace variations make him a good bet to take over 1.5 wickets in the match.

Pakistan Betting Tips:

  • Haris Rauf: After a stellar performance in Edgbaston, Rauf’s pace is expected to trouble the English batsmen again. Back him to take 2+ wickets.
  • Babar Azam: Aiming to build on his 32-run performance, Babar’s skill with the bat makes him a solid bet to score over 29.5 runs.
  • Fakhar Zaman: His aggressive batting at number four, including multiple boundaries, suggests he’s a good bet to score over 0.5 match sixes.

Expert Prediction: With rain in the forecast, the toss will be crucial, likely leading the winning captain to bowl first. England’s batting depth will face a stern test against Pakistan’s pacers, especially Shaheen Shah Afridi. With his experience and recent form, Shaheen is tipped to take over 1.5 wickets in the match.

Betting Tip: Shaheen Shah Afridi to take over 1.5 match wickets.
