Pakistan square off against England in the seventh and final T20I of England’s Tour of Pakistan 2022 on Sunday, October 2, at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The match starts at 8:00 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
It has been an exciting series so far, with both the teams winning three clashes each. The England cricket team started the tour with a six-wicket win in the first T20I before the hosts leveled things up with a 10-wicket win in the second T20I.
The visitors pulled things back in the third T20I to take a 2-1 lead, only for the Pakistan cricket team to make a comeback once again in the fourth match and restore parity.
A close encounter in the fifth T20I saw Pakistan edge past the Englishmen by six runs. However, it was England’s turn to fight back this time around and they did so with a statement eight-wicket win in the sixth fixture of the series.
With the series tied at 3-3, Sunday’s tie will be a decider.
PAK vs ENG Dream11 prediction
The two close finishes in the fourth and fifth T20Is saw Pakistan prevail under pressure as Babar Azam and Co. won the two encounters by three and six runs, respectively. With everything riding on the series decider, Pakistan’s ability to see through close matches make them favourites to win the all-important tie and pocket the series at home.
England, however, will be tough opponents and can easily turn the odds in their favour on a good day.
PAK vs ENG Dream11 team tips for England Tour of Pakistan 2022 seventh T20I
Top Tip: Best batter
Babar Azam will be a smart pick among the batters. The Pakistan skipper is the second-highest run-scorer in the ongoing series with 281 runs from six innings. Furthermore, he is the only player who boasts a century in the bilateral series so far. With more than 90% of fantasy players choosing the batter in their teams, expect the 9-credit man to play an important role in the crunch clash.
Top Tip: Best bowler
England pacer Mark Wood will be the preferred pick from the available bowlers. Even though the 32-year-old has featured in only two matches so far, he has been terrific with the ball, picking up six wickets at a respectable economy of 5.5. Priced at just 7.5 credits, Wood is expected to feature in the final T20I in place of Richard Gleeson, who has been below-par so far.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
England’s Moeen Ali will be the recommendation from the all-rounders’ list. The left-handed batter has been handy for the visitors, contributing 142 runs from four innings, including two half-centuries. He also has a solitary wicket to show for his bowling efforts so far. With just over 45% ownership in the fantasy teams, the 9-credit man can prove to be a good differential pick for fantasy managers.
Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan is an obvious choice from the wicket-keeper spot. The 30-year-old has been in stellar form throughout the series, scoring 315 runs at an average of 78.75 and boasts a strike rate of 140.62. Moreover, he has smashed four half-centuries in five innings, accumulating 418 fantasy points in the process. Priced at 9.0 credits, Rizwan is expensive but his form in the series makes him a must-have in any team.
PAK vs ENG playing XI (probable)
Pakistan: Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan (wicket-keeper), Shan Masood, Iftikhar Ahmed, Haider Ali, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Aamer Jamal, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Haris Rauf
