England and Pakistan clash at the Rose Bowl in the 3rd and final Test of the series on Friday. The visitors are in need of a victory, can their batsmen survive in English conditions? I fancy the hosts to make it 2-0 but it promises to be another tight clash.

England Form


England won the 1st Test and take that 1-0 lead into the final Test after a rain interrupted draw in the 2nd Test. It was a magnificent batting performance by England in their second innings of the 1st Test to win after Pakistan had dominated.

In the 2nd Test England bowled Pakistan out for 236 runs but then the rain arrived. England only got to bat on day four and after seven overs they were off again. 

On day five Zach Crawley found some form with 53 runs as England ended on 110 before played was called off.

England News


Ben Stokes remains out for the 3rd Test which means Zach Crawley will remain in the starting line-up. 

Sam Curran started the 2nd Test ahead of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood but we could see one of those two returning.

Pakistan Form


Pakistan batted first again in the 2nd Test as Abid Ali scored 60, Babar Azam 47 and Mohammad Rizwan 72 runs to take the visitors to 236 runs. Unfortunately it was only on day four when they managed to get to bowl at England due to rain.

With only seven overs bowled on the penultimate day, Pakistan returned on day five to reduce England to 110-4 before play was called off and a draw was confirmed.

Pakistan News


Pakistan dropped Shadab Khan for the 2nd Test with Fawad Alam coming in. Despite his duck, Alam is expected to retain his place.

England vs Pakistan Head to Head


Pakistan hold a 9-7 advantage over England in their last 18 Test matches with two draws. Their last Test ended in a draw as only 135 overs were possible over the five days at the Rose Bowl.

England are priced at 1.83 to win with Pakistan at 4.00 to win. A draw can be backed at 3.75.

Joe Root is paying 1.66 to score 50+ runs in the match while Pakistan’s Babar Azam is valued at 2.00 in the same market.

England vs Pakistan Match Up


Both sides have very strong bowling line-ups but the England batsmen give them the edge in home conditions. Pakistan are heavily reliant on Babar Azam to score runs and should he not amass a bit score the bowlers will produce a special performance.
