ENG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction | 1st T20I | Pakistan tour of England 2020

England and Pakistan will clash against each other in the 1st T20I match of Pakistan tour of England, 2020, at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. We will provide ENG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

England:

England has won all the series that they have played so far this summer. They have won Test series against West Indies, then the ODI series against Ireland and now against Pakistan by 1-0. Now, they would be high on confidence going into the T20I series against Pakistan.

Though the players that will be completely different from the players who played the test, there are also match-winners. But it wouldn’t be that easy against the NO.1 team in the T20 format.

  • Tom Banton and Jonny Bairstow are most likely to be the openers for the team. Once they get going, then it is tough to stop the flow of runs.
  • Dawid Malan might get to bat at NO.3, followed by skipper Eoin Morgan and the young Sam Billing, who has looked in good form in the last ODI series.
  • The lower middle-order would be handled by Moeen Ali, Tom Curran and, Dawid Willey, who is equally good with both bat and ball.
  • The bowling department would be handled by Adil Rashid, Saqib Mahmood and, David Willey.

Pakistan:

Pakistan might not have lost the Test series, but they put up a perfect fight and almost won one of the matches. But when it comes to T20, they are one of the top teams, and it would be an exciting contest to watch these two teams as they have some big names on either side.

Except for 2-3 players, the Pakistan squad is also completely different from the Test squad, and they have a lot of firepower in both batting and bowling.

  • One of the world’s best batsmen and the skipper of Pakistan team, Babar Azam, would open the innings and the destructive batsman Fakhar Zaman.
  • Veteran batsman Mohammed Hafeez and the youngster Haider Ali would bat after them.
  • All-rounders like Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, and their wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan, would be handling the middle order.
  • They have many options in the pace attack like Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi and, Mohammad Hasnain.
