|Pakistan vs England 3rd T20I|
|Date||22nd September 2022|
|Time||8:00 PM IST, 2:30 PM GMT, 7:30 PM LOCAL|
|Venue||National Stadium, Karachi|
Having lost the first T20I, Pakistan bounced back in the series with a thumping 10-wicket win over England. Chasing a target of 200 runs, Babar Azam silenced his critics and scored a magnificent 110 of 66 balls. Mohammad Rizwan was also in full flow and stayed unbeaten on 88 off 51.
However, there are still a few questions for Pakistan to answer. The bowling has looked off colour in both games which will be a worry. Also, the middle order issues are still visible. So far, it has either been Babar Azam or Mohammad Rizwan who have taken the team home but on any given day these two batters fail, Pakistan will struggle.
Meanwhile, England will be disappointed after losing the second game. However, they can take heart from the fact that despite some key players missing, they have done well with the bat. Their bowlers had an off day in the second T20I but the same set of players troubled Pakistan in the first match which should be enough to keep them in good spirits.
Over 400 runs were scored in the second T20I which is enough to portray the nature of the surface which looks a belter. Once again, a high-scoring game can be on the cards.
The weather will be clear with very little chance of rain. The temperature will range between 30 to 25 degrees.
Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Haider Ali, Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Usman Qadir, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah/Mohammad Hasnain, Shahnawaz Dahani
Alex Hales, Philip Salt (wk), Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali (c), Sam Curran, David Willey, Luke Wood, Adil Rashid, Liam Dawson, Adil Rashid
Both teams are unlikely to make any changes unless they want to give some players a break due to back-to-back matches.
Pakistan doesn’t have a great record against England in T20Is, however, a win in the last game will boost their confidence.

We said it before that Babar is a class player and a big knock was coming sooner or later. Babar was in full flow in the last game and became the first Pakistani to score two centuries in T20Is. He scored 110 runs and helped Pakistan chase 200.
Moeen Ali is one of the best players to have in the team. Batting bowling, leading, there is nothing he can’t do. Moeen played a good hand of 55 off 23 balls in the last game. He struggled with the ball but every other bowler was hammered as well. He should be back in his element in the coming game.
Despite questions regarding his strike rate, Mohammad Rizwan has been in scintillating form. After scoring a fifty in the first game, he played another blazing inning and scored 88 off 51 balls in the last game. He has justified his top position in the ICC T20I rankings.
Alex Hales looked good in the second T20I as well and scored 26 runs. He had scored a fifty in the first game so he has been in good form. Hales has returned to the side after a long time and he will be keen to deliver consistent performances and cement his place in the team.
Haris Rauf has bowled well in both games. Rauf can be expensive at times but when he bowls well, he is very hard to play given his pace. So far, he has done remarkably well, picking three wickets in two matches at an economy of around 6.
