England vs Pakistan, 3rd T20I of Pakistan tour of England 2024
28th May, 11:00 PM IST
Sophia Gardens, Cardiff.

ENG vs PAK Preview

England got off to a strong start in the series, securing a comprehensive win in the 2nd T20I after the opening game was abandoned due to rain. Jos Buttler led from the front with a brilliant 84-run knock, while Will Jacks chipped in with a valuable 37-run contribution, enabling England to post a formidable total of 183 runs on the board.

In reply, Pakistan’s openers departed early in the first three overs, but Fakhar Zaman (45 runs) and Babar Azam (32 runs) tried to keep them in the chase. However, a disciplined bowling performance from England, with Reece Topley taking 3 wickets and Moeen Ali and Jofra Archer grabbing 2 wickets each, restricted Pakistan to 160 runs.

As the series moves to the 3rd T20I, Pakistan will need to come back stronger and put up a more spirited performance if they hope to level the series. Their batting unit will be under pressure to deliver, while the bowling attack must find a way to counter the in-form English batters.

On the other hand, England will be looking to extend their lead in the series and build much-needed momentum ahead of the T20 World Cup. With their batting firing and the bowlers delivering, they will be aiming to continue their winning ways and assert their dominance in the series.

Sophia Gardens Pitch Report

The pitch at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff is larger in dimensions, forcing batters to be watchful while playing big strokes. Pacers are expected to have good movement off the surface, while spinners will also remain in the game given the bigger boundaries, which allow them to use their variations. Batting second would be the preferred choice for the captain winning the toss, as 7 of the 10 games were won by the team batting second.
