ENG vs PAK Dream11 team 1st T20I: who will win today match prediction?


ENG vs PAK dream11 today match prediction: After missing the ODI series, A tier stars are back for the shortest format of the game and Pakistan couldn’t put up a fight against a second string team in the ODIs and with England playing their near full strength XI here, Pakistan might have to play put of their skins which they are completely capable of doing to win the series.

Pakistan will travel to West Indies after this series and the upcoming 8 T20Is will be a massive test for them prior to WT20. England on the other hand destroyed Sri Lanka in their previous T20I series 3-0 but Pakistan have some superstars in their line up unlike Sri Lanka and England might not want to take this unpredictable Pakistan side lightly.

ENG vs PAK dream11 team

In dream11 prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides.

  • Shaheen Afridi has been a disappointment in the ODI series and will be looking to redeem himself in the shortest format of the game.
  • Jos Buttler played a match winning innings in his last outing against Sri Lanka and Pakistan have 3 excellent pacers at their disposal and it will be a good battle between England batters and Pakistan bowlers.
  • Pakistan might have to bat Fakhar Zaman out of his position as they did against South Africa as both Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan are better suited at the top of the order.
  • As Pakistan bat deep, they would want their captain Babar Azam to exploit the powerplay to the fullest without worrying about his wicket.
  • England’s death bowling is a bit of a concern but the experience of Chris Jordan and the rawness of Saqib Mahmood could be more than enough for Pakistan.

Today match prediction

Who will win today match: England will walk into the game as favorites against Pakistan. On paper, England have an excellent batting line up as opposed to Pakistan’s brilliant pace attack. Pakistan would need wickets upfront with the new ball badly against this England batting lineup who bat till 11. Shaheen Afridi has to step up at some point in time for Pakistan and this would be the right time for him to put his hand up.
