England vs Pakistan Pitch Report
The Melbourne Cricket Ground has given us some games to remember in this world cup. There has been some movement with the ball when the conditions are overcast and the pacers have got the advantage. However, the pitches in most of the venues of the world cup have slowed down than usual. The weather forecast for the game is not encouraging as there is a chance of rainfall. However, unlike the group stages we do have a reserve day for the final. The overcast conditions can help the pacers to get some movement off the pitch. The par score is expected to be around 160-170 runs.
Last result at the venue
India (186/5 in 20 overs) beat Zimbabwe (115 in 17.2 overs) by 71 runs.

His aggressive style of batting came good in the semi final as he smashed an unbeaten 80 off just 49 balls. All eyes will be on him as he regained some much needed form at the right time.
Alex Hales Stats in T20I
The stylish English opener has been in some form in the ongoing tournament. He shall look to continue the momentum for one more time to get the cup home for his team.
PAK Playing 11
- It has been a fairy tale ride for Pakistan which does not seem to end. There has been no looking back for them since that game against South Africa. They look dangerous and would want to fight it out to get their second T20 World Cup.

The Pakistani wicket keeper looked in fine touch against New Zealand and shall be glad that he was amongst the runs when his team needed him the most.
Shaheen Shah Afridi Stats in T20I
The Pakistani pacer continued with his good form which he gained against Bangladesh and scalped two important wickets to get the Pakistanis on the driver’s seat.
Who will win England vs Pakistan today match?
- It will be interesting to see how the explosive opening pair of Butler and Hales counter the express pace of Shaheen, Naseem and Harris during the powerplay.
- England won the recently held series against Pakistan, 4-3, but past results do not mean anything.
- England have faced Pakistan in 28 T20I matches, Engalnd have won 18 whereas Pakistan have come out victorious on 9 occasions. One game did not give any result.
Considering form, head to head record and morale of both sides, England have the edge over Pakistan as per records. However, it is a knockout stage of the world cup and its tough to determine a clear favourite among the two well balanced teams.
