Fantasy Cricket: England vs Pakistan T20I III Preview


England proved that their T20 side has the required depth and variety to pack a punch, with a clinical win in the second T20I. As the series comes to an end, Pakistan will look to salvage some pride with a win and draw the series. The third and final T20I will be played in Manchester on Tuesday.

With Australia in town for ODI and T20I series, England will look to continue their momentum. Pakistan, on the other hand, will look to go back home with something to show after losing the Test series 1-0. With excellent players available for selection, fantasy selections aren’t going to be easy.

England Preview

The hosts boast of a confident batting line-up complete with experienced and potential players. Tom Banton showed that he’s got the game to nail the opening spot in Jason Roy’s absence. He can be a good fantasy choice. Similarly, Dawid Malan’s consistency in the format is too good to be left out.

With the ball, there aren’t many options for England to push into your side. However, Adil Rashid’s ability to keep taking wickets is a huge positive. There is a small chance that England could hand a start to David Willey. If he does play, Willey could be a good choice for your side.

Pakistan Preview

Babar Azam’s side enjoyed the batting brilliance of veteran Mohammad Hafeez to notch a competitive score in the second match. Captain Azam played well too, but the bowlers let them down. With Mohammad Amir struggling, we could see a start for Wahab Riaz.

Haris Rauf’s struggles also do not augur well for Pakistan and he could be left out. Shadab Khan, though, continues to enjoy strong bowling starts. The leg-spinner could be a good pick for your side.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Babar Azam had a strong Test series and a good T20I series so far without a big score yet. This could be his chance to sign off in style.

Jonny Bairstow didn’t set the field alight, although he looked good in parts so far. With the big series against Australia coming up, he could be looking for a confident show.

Eoin Morgan enjoys the T20I format and will look to go big once again. With big shots part of his core game, Morgan could be an important pick.
