England and Pakistan will clash against each other in the 3rd Test match of Pakistan tour of England, 2020, at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. We will provide ENG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
The 2nd Test result came out as draw as most of the match got washed out, and teams didn’t even get to play a single innings properly. England is leading the series by 1-0, and Pakistan needs to win the final Test to end up series in a draw; otherwise, England will be the winner.
England has looked decent so far in this series as they managed to win the 1st Test. They were almost defeated in that Test, but they fought back and won the match comfortably by 3 wickets. In the second Test, they didn’t get much to play, but they did well with their bowling.
- Broad has been having a great time in his career as he has been picking up wickets consistently and has picked up 4 wickets in the last match.
- Anderson, too looked in right touch as he picked up three wickets in the previous game.
- Sam Curran and Chris Woakes managed to pick up 1 wicket each.
- Rory Burns got out for a duck, but Dominic Sibley 32 runs, and Zak Crawley 53 runs added 91 runs to the 2nd wicket.
Pakistan has put up a good fight all along with the series but just gave up when they had to push a little harder. In the 1st Test, they were almost near the win but couldn’t manage to pick up the wickets, lost the match, and put up a good fight in the 2nd Test until the rain interrupted the proceedings.
- The star of the 1st Test for Pakistan, Shan Masood, got out for just 1 run in the last Test, but his partner Abid Ali batted brilliantly, scoring 60 runs.
- Azhar Ali once again failed with his bat scoring only 20 runs, and Babar Azam was as always good with the bat but fell short of 3 runs to fifty scoring 47 runs.
- But the innings belong to Mohammad Rizwan, who held on to his wicket, scored brilliant 72 runs, and helped Pakistan reach a decent total.
- Mohammad Abbas bowled brilliantly picking up 2 wickets, whereas Shaheen Afridi and Yasir Shah managed to pick up 1 wicket.

The pitch here is generally considered helpful for the fast bowlers in the first innings and will trouble the batsmen a lot. But as the match progresses, the ball tends to ease out and becomes spin-friendly on the 3rd day onwards. Who wins the toss would like to field first, and score runs later on the 2nd day.
There are chances of rain on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th day so there are chances that there might be many interruptions throughout the match.
