England vs Pakistan

England vs Pakistan: Despite losing their first two matches of the T20 World Cup to India and Zimbabwe, Pakistan made it to the finals of the T20 World Cup. They defeated mighty South Africa in the league stage and then consistent New Zealand in the semifinals to book a place in the finals.

They will be keen to build lay their hands on that T20 World Cup trophy after 13 long years. Let’s see what 3 changes Pakistan can bring up for this most important game.

1. Better utilization of Powerplay batting

Despite being top-ranked T20 batters, both Babar and Rizwan have been scoring at a run-a-ball or even less in the powerplay in this T20 World Cup. The fact that both of them are eating up a lot of deliveries in the powerplay was creating unwanted pressure on the middle order. They changed their approach in the last match and scored 55 runs in the powerplay in the semifinal against New Zealand. Pakistan team would want their openers to play the final like how they did against New Zealand.


Batter Strike Rate Dot Ball % Boundary %
Mohammad Rizwan 113.6 45.8 15.79
Babar Azam 117.6 42.5 17.35

2. Nawaz to tackle Adil Rashid

Adil Rashid was the one bowler who took the game away from India in the semi-finals. Indian right-handed batters failed to take him down in the middle overs. The left-hander Rishabh Pant couldn’t face a delivery of him either. Pakistan could avoid such a mistake and send Nawaz as a floater when Adil Rashid takes the ball. This would ease the pressure of the other batters to score.

3. Shadab Khan to play the role of a floater

One person Pakistan could use as a floater is Shadab Khan. He has been timing the ball perfectly recently and has the ability to play the power game. Pakistan could use him as a floater before or between Shan Masood and Ifthikar if the situation arises. This could help them to keep the run-rate moving.
