Fantasy picks from Pakistan:
B Azam|Fakhar Zaman| I Wasim
B Azam and F Zaman are two assets of Pakistan and they have played some brilliant cricket recently. Zaman scored 76 and 101 in both warm-up matches for Pakistan, whereas Azam thrashed 65 runs in T20 in Cardiff along with 101 runs in T20 warm-up match.
I Wasim is good with both bat as well as with the ball. He has been continuously picking wickets for Pakistan.
Fantasy picks from England:
J Buttler|J Roy|Ben Stokes|Plunkett
J Buttler is an experienced play and would definitely make an impact with his bat. E Morgan is in form as he scored 57 runs off 29 balls in the previous T20 games. J Denly scored 20 off 12 balls and is expected to be dangerous to the bowlers.
Ben Stokes who is back from IPL after serving Rajasthan Royals can be dangerous too. He played some important knock during IPL.
L Plunkett and Archer are two wicket taking bowlers and it would not be easy for Pakistan to play them
