England grabbed the impetus in the series with victory last time out in this bumper series.

The National Stadium will be hopeful of staging another high quality contest in what has been a ding-dong series.

 

Pakistan vs England | Fourth T20I | Sunday 25 September 2022 | National Stadium, Karachi | 16:30

 

Pakistan

 

The hosts couldn’t match the batting power of England last time out as their top three failed to fire.

 

Pakistan’s explosiveness is concentrated in that top three of Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Haider Ali and questions will be asked ironically of the man who top-scored in match three Shan Masood who comes in at four.

 

Arguably Pakistan would be better off going with allrounders who are a little more attacking when at the crease.

 

Shahnawaz Dahani showed character to come back from a horrible mauling but the medium-pacer will be lucky to retain his place in this side.

 

England

 

Harry Brook has started to show the kind of form that got him into this side at just the right time as far as the T20 World Cup is concerned.

 

England have rotated their top order in order to test new combinations but may want to try out the pairing of Brooks and Hales as the openers in this one.

 

Ben Duckett’s return to this team has been overshadowed by other news but he has made a big statement in Pakistan with a string of great performances.

 

Mark Wood was breathing fire last time out producing at one point what might be the fastest over ever bowled by an Englishman in international cricket.

 

Verdict: England

 

England look good value for a win.
