Wahab Riaz was pick of the bowler for Pakistan as the Babar Azam led side defended 191 runs on a flat wicket. The 35-year old Wahab bowled superbly in penultimate over of the match and removed Moeen Ali, who was striking at 200. In the last over England needed 17 runs and Haris Rauf defended it. However, when 12 runs were needed off the last two balls, Tom Curran hit the second last ball of the match six and England was one hit away. But Rauf bowled a brilliant yorker to win the game for his team.

England vs Pakistan match prediction

In ENG vs PAK 3rd T20, England would look to continue his good show with bat on a flat wicket. A poor captaincy and the with one bowler down, Pakistan has lost the plot while defending the total and some changes in bowling department may turn Men in green’s fortune. However, England would start as favourites with bowling and batting doing their job in tandem.

Eng vs Pak 3rdd T20 pitch report

The first two T20Is showed that Old Trafford wicket is a flat wicket with no help for bowlers. The bowlers need to rely on their variations to fox the batsmen. However, Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan got some purchase from the wicket but failed to leak the run flow as hitting through line is very easy on Machester pitch.

Pakistan needed to play Wahab Riaz: Shahid Afridi

Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi believes that pacer Wahab Riaz should have played the second T20I against England after 'disappointing' five wickets defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday.
 
Taking to Twitter Afridi wrote, "Disappointing result, we posted a good score but the bowling failed to back the batsmen. Really feel Pakistan needed to play Wahab Riaz, if he is there he should be used considering his experience in the T20 format. Pakistan should have taken control of the game, disappointing defeat."
 
With the win, England has gained a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Chasing 196, the host got off to a brisk start as openers Jonny Bairstow and Tom Banton put on 65 runs inside the powerplay overs. READ MORE HERE
