Mohammed Rizwan hit 88 runs from 67 balls at the top of the order on Sunday and he is our recommendation as Pakistan’s highest run scorer in this match. Haris Rauf took 3-32 from his four overs in the fourth IT20 and the pace bowler is our pick for Pakistan’s top wicket taker on Wednesday.
England captain Jos Buttler has missed the opening four games of the series as he has been building up his fitness after sustaining an injury during the Men’s Hundred. He has a fantastic white ball record and is a strong choice for England’s highest run scorer in this game. Mark Wood is also expected to return after proving too quick and accurate on Friday. Wood is well worth backing as England’s top wicket taker.
We have seen England’s top order play with more attacking intent than Pakistan’s and we suggest the visitors will make the ‘Highest 1st 6 overs Score’ in this match.

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11
PAK Team News
There were two changes to Pakistan’s XI ahead of the fourth IT20 with Shanawaz Dahani missing out after conceding 62 runs in Friday’s game. Haider Ali was also left out with an injury with Asif Ali and Mohammed Wasim coming in to the XI.
PAK Key Players
Mohammad Rizwan- the 30 year old has scored four half-centuries from his last five IT20s and has made 490 runs in this format in this month alone.
Babar Azam- the captain continues to come in for criticism for the pace of his batting but his 36 runs from 28 balls at the top of the order were very useful on Sunday. He put on 97 for the first wicket for Rizwan in the fourth IT20.
Haris Rauf- the right arm quick bowler has caused England’s batters plenty of problems irrespective of the match situation throughout the series. He has 56 wickets in this format.
PAK Team Form
Pakistan have won two of their last three games in this series but they are their only wins from their last six matches.
We expect to see Jos Buttler, Mark Wood and Sam Curran come back into England’s XI for this game with Phil Salt, Olly Stone and David Willey the players likely to drop out. Will Jacks and Dawid Malan will fight it out for the number three spot but we expect Jacks to be given the opportunity.
ENG Key Players
Jos Buttler- the keeper-batter has a top score of 101 not out in this format and dominated the bowling attacks in this year’s IPL.
Harry Brook- the Yorkshireman looked a little out of sorts on Sunday but still contributed 34 runs from 29 balls. He has been England’s most fluent batter in the series.
Mark Wood- the right arm fast bowler dismissed Babar Azam, Haider Ali and Haris Rauf during his spell of extreme pace bowling in the third IT20.
ENG Team Form
England will look to get more consistency in their batting performances with the return of Jos Buttler at the top of the order. They have won two of their last five matches in this format.
