engNew Delhi, Tuesday, September 6 – After a day, the tournament between England and Pakistan will come to an end as soon as the only T20 International match is played at Old Trafford in Manchester. They are to contend in a T20 match, which will take place on Wednesday, September 7.

Despite the fact that it has been long when Pakistan arrived on tour of England in early July, challenges were different in each match held in the recent past. These may go huge in the final encounter as both teams look forward to winning. Undoubtedly, the hosts proved that they are stronger than the guests in ODI format but the lessons what they learnt in Test series, which ended 2-2 will enable them have their feet on ground and make strategies according to format of the game.

Pakistan supporters will look forward to the 20-20 match between their team and England tomorrow and pray it to be won by Pakistan, who finished 5-match ODI series 1-4 by managing to log victory in the final ODI held at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Sunday, September 4. The chances of witnessing unexpected rise and fall of the teams as a unit go up due to the format of limited over game. More to the point, since cricket being the most unpredictable sport, audiences are always set to see colossal sixes and classy boundaries from cricketers, whether young or experienced. After all, T20 cricket is about performing to the best of abilities when both teams have equal chances to gain and maintain the grip in the competition.

England may look better on paper as compared to the rivals but they can’t forget challengers have the ability to bounce back at any point of time and recent example is the last ODI, which was won by Pakistan by four wickets. Fans eye how players of both sides actually perform when given opportunity to be a part of Playing XI. Role of leading wicket-takers will be significant to restrict opponents at a total which can be attained while chasing the target batting second. In case, the bowlers are shown horrendous time by a few batsmen through great striking abilities, job of winning will automatically be shifted on the shoulders of batting line-up that will add to the pressure. If truth be told then a team wins when efforts are poured from each player.  Playing as a unit is fruitful. The tournament is probable to turn exciting if both England and Pakistan perform to the best of their abilities, putting best foot forward.

As of now, the groups gear up for the contest which is to start soon. No wonder, if victories from high margin or by an inch are logged. England are in great form of recently and problem could be for the rivals if that is maintained in tomorrow’s match as well. They crushed Pakistan badly in the lately concluded ODI series. The group will be keen to keep up the good show. However, likelihood of witnessing some unexpected show from Pakistan can’t be nullified as it being a group with bunch of talented players. They may make the audience see unexpected results on more than a few occasions, taking them by surprise completely. Since Pakistan and England are to battle with bat and ball on the 22 yards pitch, organizers make sure that all arrangements are done perfectly fine so that people can have fun while watching the match live.
