ENG vs PAK Stats : England will take on Pakistan in a three match T20I series that starts at Trent Bridge, Nottingham from Friday, 16 July. England have just whitewashed Pakistan in a three match ODI series and now will look to carry that momentum into this series as well. And for this T20I series their senior players are back under the leadership of Eoin Morgan and that will lift the confidence of team further. On the other side, Pakistan who have been poor in ODIs will look to turn things around in the shortest format of the game and their players are also coming with good PSL season and they will be hoping for a good run here as well.
England are ranked number one in ICC T20I rankings and last month they defeated Sri Lanka in a three match series and have been unbeaten in limited overs in this home season so they have the form with them and the return of senior players like Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Jason Roy have further boosted the morale. On the other side, Pakistan is playing with the same set of players who played in the ODIs series and their confidence is down right now and captain Babar Azam needs to do something special to lift his team and for that he along with other senior players will have to step up.
England and Pakistan played their first ever T20I against each other back in 2006 and in these 15 years they have played total 18 T20Is and host England dominated most of the time with 11 victories and right now their team is the best team in the world and they are expected to continue their dominance. On the other hand, Pakistan have been a good T20I side over the years and their players are also coming with a good PSL season and that will give them some kick to perform in this series and last year also these two sides played a T20I series where Pakistan and England drew the hard fought series and a similar fight can be seen in this series as well.
England and Pakistan haven’t played a T20I match in Pakistan yet.
England are the champions of T20 World Cup 2010 and runners up of last T20 World Cup which was held in 2016 in India.
