Pakistan lost the 6th match in September and gave the green signal to England’s team to win the series. The 7th T-20 match will be played on October 2 on the grounds of Lahore and will decide who will take this series.
Will the host team win? The visitor team goes back with a victory. In any case, we fans are eager to see all of the sixes, fours, and wicket falls.
The hosts may make one change to their starting lineup, inserting Muhammad Haris in lieu of Haider Ali, who has struggled with the bat.
The onus will be on openers Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Mohammad Haris, and Asif Ali, as well as all-rounders Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan, to contribute the majority of the runs.
In the previous encounter, wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan hit his fourth half-century of the T20I series and anchored Pakistan’s innings as they scored 145 runs. Aside from Rizwan, Iftikhar Ahmed scored 15 runs off 14 balls, and debutant Aamer Jamal contributed 10 runs off seven balls.
The visitors may make one change, with Liam Dawson replacing Adil Rashid, who struggled to make an impact in the middle overs of the innings yet again.
In the previous game, England’s use of all-rounder Sam Curran and bowler David Willey worked effectively.
Captain Moeen Ali, rookie opener Phil Salt, Alex Hales, and the middle-order quartet of Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, and Harry Brook will be tasked with scoring the majority of the runs in this critical match.
With key players returning for both teams in the decider, expect an epic battle. The toss will also be important since heavy dew makes it much more difficult to chase.
It is much more difficult to press the accelerator in the first innings because the ball does not come on to the bat on a slow pitch in Lahore. As it stands, Pakistan is far more comfortable pursuing this and will be hopeful that Babar Azam calls a toss in their favour on Sunday.
