Mohammad Rizwan scored 68 runs from 46 balls in the first IT20 and the right-handed opener is a strong choice for Pakistan’s highest run scorer on Thursday. Haris Rauf took 1-23 from his four overs on Tuesday and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Pakistan’s top wicket taker in the second IT20.
Dawid Malan looked very comfortable in the middle before being dismissed for 20 in the opening game of the series. The left-hander is a consistent performer and is our pick for England’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Adil Rashid took 2-27 and the spinner is our tip for England’s top wicket taker in this clash.
With half-centuries in both of his last two games in this format, we suggest backing Mohammed Rizwan to score over 30.5 runs.

Pakistan are in the middle of a poor run of form with the T20 World Cup just around the corner. They will need more runs from their middle-order batters if they are to be competitive in this game.
England were too strong for Pakistan in the opening IT20 and, after a poor start in the opening overs with the ball, were well deserved winners. The visitors will be full of confidence for this clash.

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11
PAK Team News
After appearing in 25 Tests and 5 ODIs since making his international debut in October 2013, Shan Masood got his first IT20 cap ahead of Tuesday’s series opener. Although Pakistan’s innings fell away in the second half, we do not anticipate any major changes to the line-up.
PAK Key Players
Mohammad Rizwan - The keeper-batter continues to enjoy an extended run of excellent form at the top of the order for Pakistan. He scored six fours and two sixes in Tuesday’s innings.
Babar Azam - The right-handed opener and captain looked in far better touch than he had throughout the Asia Cup in his innings in the first IT20. He shared an opening partnership of 85 before being bowled by Adil Rashid.
Haris Rauf - The 28 year old has been Pakistan’s most consistent bowler over recent games. He was the most economical of the pacers and dismissed Alex Hales in the opening match of the series.
PAK Team Form
Pakistan have now lost three successive IT20s. They will still be wondering how they lost Tuesday’s game after making such a good start with the bat.
Although there were four uncapped players in England’s squad for this tour, only left-arm pace bowler Luke Wood was given his debut on Tuesday. He took 3-24 and we expect him to keep his place in an unchanged XI for the second game of the series.
ENG Key Players
Alex Hales - The right-handed opener announced himself back on the international stage with an impressive 53 runs from 40 balls. It was his first international half-century since February 2019.
Dawid Malan - The left-handed number three looked untroubled throughout his 15 ball innings on Tuesday. His innings was ended with a tame dismissal and he will look to make it count in this match.
Adil Rashid - The spinner was the pick of England’s bowling attack in the opening game of the series. He got the big wicket or Babar Azam and Shan Masood.
ENG Team Form
England ended a run of two successive IT20 defeats with the win on Tuesday. They have now won three of their last five matches in this format.
England Predicted Playing 11
Alex Hales, Phil Salt (wk), Dawid Malan, Harry Brook, Ben Duckett, Moeen Ali (c), Sam Curran, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Luke Wood, Richard Gleeson

Pakistan vs England Betting Odds
In spite of England winning the opening game of the series, it is the hosts, Pakistan, who are again favourites with the bookmakers to win this IT20.
Our batting tips are Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Shan Masood for Pakistan. On a fine batting wicket, Masood will be very disappointed with his return of seven runs from seven balls on Tuesday.
Alex Hales, Dawid Malan and Phil Salt are our batting recommendations for England. Salt got off to a fine start in the opening IT20 before being dismissed by an excellent catch on the boundary by Haider Ali.
The home side were in control of the first match of the series before England’s bowlers restricted them to only 71 runs from the final 10 overs and it will be interesting to see how Pakistan approach this game with the bat. We expect England to put in another good performance but are backing Pakistan to win and level the series.
Pakistan are favorites to beat England at the odds of 1.72
