The third and final T20I between England and Pakistan is set to take place at Old Trafford in Manchester.
England hit back with a brilliant all-around performance to level the series in Nottingham. Riding on the exploits of stand-in captain Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali, England decimated the tourists Pakistan, who had no answer to their attacking approach.
For Pakistan Mohammad Hasnain was the pick of the bowlers as he grabbed 3 wickets while Imad Wasim and Haris Rauf took 2 wickets each for Pakistan. Coming to chase, Pakistan failed to chase down the target even after getting a promising start. After the wickets of the openers fell, no other Pakistani batsmen looked settled at the crease except for Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim who scored 36 runs and 20 runs respectively.
The Old Trafford pitch has generally favored the spinners, with there being ample turn-on offer.
