England vs Pakistan History
The first time these two sides met was in 1954 at Lord’s. The Pakistani team clinched an epochal victory at the Oval and prevailed against one of the strongest England sides of all time in their own backyard, squaring off the series. Not many teams achieved this impressive feat of beating the Old Country on their soil. For perspective, it took West Indians 22 years and Indians 39 to win a test in England.
Since that match, England and Pakistan have played against each other 189 times across all competitions, and the Poms have the upper hand in all formats. England is Pakistan’s most frequent opponent in Test cricket — of their 86 encounters, England won 26, Pakistan 21, and 39 resulted in a draw.
The H2H in ODIs are also in favour of the England national cricket team. They’ve played 91 matches in the One Day International. England won 53 times out of these games, whereas the Shaheens recorded only 32 wins, with three matches ending in a tie.
Unsurprisingly, the Englishmen dominate the T20Is H2H, too. Out of their 18 standoffs, England has come up trumps in 11 matches, while Pakistan came out victorious on five occasions, and one game ended up in a tie.
Both teams have had their fair share of success on the international stage. England won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2010 and stood as the runners-up in 2016. They’ve also been to the finals of the ICC Champions Trophies twice — in 2004 and 2013. Additionally, the England team won 32 Ashes trophies, and a Test cricket series played between Australia and England.
On the other hand, Pakistan national cricket team stood as the runner-up at the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 competition in 2007 and won the event two years later. They’re one of the select few teams to win each of ICC international cricket tournaments, including ICC World Cricket Cup (1992), ICC Champions Trophy (2017), ICC T20 World Cup (2009), and ICC Test Championship in 2016.
England’s superiority was displayed against the Men in Green in the last 10 encounters between the two teams. With a 6-3 lead, England has been a tough nut to crack for Pakistan recently.
The lion’s share of their recent matches has been high-scoring affairs, mainly because of the flat nature of wickets in England. The robust ODI batting line-up has exposed Pakistan’s bowling, and it remains to be seen whether the Asian juggernaut will overcome these struggles for their next encounter.
England vs Pakistan Betting Predictions
Looking at a previous couple of matchups, England was seen as a slight betting favourite against Pakistan. The two teams could have met in the ongoing T20 World Cup, but the Poms suffered a dramatic five-wicket semi-final defeat by New Zealand.
Most books had Pakistan as one of the top five outright favourites to win the World Cup. The Falcons were undefeated before their semi-final matchup against Australia and even beat India for the first time in a World Cup, but they lost to the Aussies.

England vs Pakistan, 2020: 3rd T20I – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds
The third and final T20I of the three-match series between England and Pakistan will be played at the Old Trafford in Manchester. This match starts at 10:30 PM IST (6 PM local time). It will be live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD and live streaming will be available on Sony LIV.
Pakistan’s long tour of England is set to end with the third and final T20I against England on Tuesday. The visitors are yet to win even a single game on the tour which has been affected by rain mostly. Rain had the final say in two Test matches and the first T20I and Pakistan ended up losing in other two matches effectively falling behind in the series.
The third T20I presents them with a decent chance to pull one back and end the series on a high. But it is not easy at all for them given the way England chased down 196 the other day. The likes of Eoin Morgan, Dawid Malan, Tom Banton and Jonny Bairstow are in excellent form. But England’s bowling is a bit of a worry and they might look to give a chance to the benched players in this match.
The second T20I proved that the pitch is excellent to bat on at the Old Trafford. But this match will start in the evening much like the series opener when England struggled while batting first.
Average first innings score: 195 (In only completed match in the series)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 1; Lost – 0
Probable Playing XIs
Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam (C), Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Imad Wasim, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir/Mohammad Hasnain/Wahab Riaz.
Bench – Mohammad Amir/Mohammad Hasnain/Wahab Riaz, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Naseem Shah, Khushdil Shah, Haider Ali
Tom Banton, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan (C), Sam Billings, Moeen Ali, Lewis Gregory, Tom Curran, Adil Rashid, Chris Jordan, Saqib Mahmood/David Willey.
Bench – Joe Denly, Saqib Mahmood/David Willey
Expected Top Players
England skipper Eoin Morgan has been in great form in the white-ball cricket for quite some time now. He played great knocks in the ODI series against Ireland too and returned with a 33-ball 66 in the second T20I. Expect him to play well again.
Babar Azam scored a 44-ball 56 opening the innings for Pakistan and led from the front. But in the context of the game, his knock came under the scanner and many felt that he should’ve accelerated a bit. He is likely to come up with yet another brilliant effort with the bat.
Shoaib Malik is being criticised a lot for his poor form. But he is a veteran and knows his role exactly. With the team in a must-win situation to save the series, expect Malik to step up and perform.
Our Betting Tips
Pakistan were at the top of the T20I rankings for a long time and it was due to their strong bowling effort. They need a bit of experience in their attack to curb England’s run-scoring. They are likely to put their best foot forward in this game and end the tour on a high finally with a win.
Our Prediction: Pakistan are expected to win this match.
England vs Pakistan, 2020: 2nd Test – Who will win the Match? Best Betting Odds
The second of the three-match Test series between England and Pakistan will be played at The Rose Bowl in Southampton. This match starts at 11:00 AM local time (03:30 PM IST) (10:00 AM UTC). It will be live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD and can be streamed live on SonyLIV.
Extraordinary things are bound to happen during an English summer. And the fans witnessed the same in the first Test between England and Pakistan. The hosts chased down 277 after struggling at 117/5 thanks to Chris Woakes and Jos Buttler. Pakistan were left ruing the missed opportunity to take an early lead in the series.
However, England have been dealt with a huge blow as Ben Stokes has withdrawn from the last two Tests. They have included Ollie Robinson in the 14-man squad and Zak Crawley is likely to replace Stokes in the XI. Also, the home side is likely to rest one of the pacers, of course not Woakes, and hand a debut to Robinson. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be looking to repeat what they did in the series opener and close out the game this time around.
The overcast conditions are likely to welcome both the teams in this match. Batting won’t be an easy task over the next five days and the team winning the toss is expected to bowl first. England opted to bat last time around and ended up losing the Test.
Average first innings score: 300 (4 Tests played at the venue)
Probable Playing XIs
Rory Burns, Dominic Sibley, Joe Root (c), Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope, Jos Buttler (wk), Chris Woakes, Dominic Bess, Jofra Archer, Stuart Broad, James Anderson/Sam Curran.
Shan Masood, Abid Ali/Fawad Alam, Azhar Ali (c), Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Shadab Khan, Yasir Shah, Mohammad Abbas, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah
Expected Top Players
Chris Woakes’ batting abilities are just a bonus for England. He is a brilliant bowler and picked up four crucial wickets in the previous game. Moreover, in Stokes’ absence, his batting at seven will be important for the home team.
Babar Azam averages close to 45 in 27 Tests and looked elegant during his 69-run knock in the first innings of the previous Test. He will be key for Pakistan if they are to make a comeback and level the series.
Stuart Broad seems to be in the form of his life. He is bowling superbly and has picked 22 wickets in last three Tests with six of them coming in the previous game. The pacer was dropped from the XI against West Indies at the same venue and he will be itching to continue his golden run.
Our Betting Tips
England are leading in the series but Stokes withdrawing has left Joe Root alone to handle the brittle batting line-up. He is not in great form himself and the lower-order won’t come to the rescue every time. Pakistan have a brilliant bowling attack and they will be looking to get the job done this time around. Their batsmen are in decent form compared to that of England.
Our Prediction: Pakistan are expected to win this Test.
