    ENG vs PAK Prediction- Who Will Win Today’s Match Between England and PAKISTAN

    • In the batting department, England is miles ahead of Pakistan in skill and execution.
    • With the arrival of Mohammad Haris, Pakistan has found a breath of fresh air in its batting. The form that Babar and Rizwan showed in the semifinals will also give much-needed confidence to them.
    • In the pace bowling department, Pakistan is probably the best side in the competition.
    • The injury to Mark Wood has had a serious hit on the English bowling unit. Chris Jordan will replace him in the eleven as he did in the last match.
    • Dawid Malan is injured and will be replaced by Phil Salt in the XI.
    • The last time these two sides faced off against each other in a T20I match, England defeated Pakistan by 67 runs.
