Pakistan has always been ahead of other countries in this shortest form of cricket by playing the most T20Is and winning the most number of matches. They have played 172 T20I matches so far while no other country has played even 150 matches.
Similarly, Pakistan is the only country in the world to record a hundred or more wins as they have won 105 matches in this format so far.
Unfortunately, they don’t have an impressive record against England in T20 International cricket as they have only won six out of 12 matches against England, with one tied and one without a result.
Despite the fact that Pakistan has a clout consisting of young and energetic players and experienced all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez, Pakistan is only dependent on their skipper Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Both batsmen are showing good form.
Pakistan also has a battery of fast bowlers Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain and Haris Rauf and the services of good spinners Shadab Khan and Usman Qadir, but they have not been lucky enough to bowl to give the opponents a hard time.
Now both teams will face each other tonight in their 21st head-to-head Twenty20 International.
Pakistan – Babar Azam (Captain), Shadab Khan (Vice Captain), Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan (World Cup), Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Sharjeel Khan, Azam Khan, Arshad Iqbal, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Usman Qadir, Sohaib Maqsood, Mohammad Wasim.
