Cricket: Pakistan v England 3rd T20 Match Preview & Betting Tips


Babar and Rizwan make mincemeat of a 200 chase to peg England back after strong batting performance from visitors

Pakistan v England

T20 International series, Game Three (of seven)

Friday September 23, 2022, 3.30pm (UK)

National Stadium, Karachi

Before a ball was bowled in this series, a number of high scores were expected. And then game one produced 150 plays 150.

But game two yesterday went as expected in terms of totals. What perhaps wasn’t expected was the ease with which Pakistan reeled in a target of 200.

Babar Azam scored a stunning unbeaten 110, while Mohammad Rizwan provided excellent support with 88 not out.

Home win and runs looks appetising

I fancy Pakistan to win and more runs to be scored in game three, so I’m going to suggest a couple of singles and a #OddsOnThat combination from betfair all along the same theme.

The first is a Pakistan win, which is available at 8/11 with bet365. They have now won eight out of nine T20Is at this venue, and the manner of their victory yesterday can’t be ignored.

The second is bet365′s 5/6 on over 356.5 runs to be scored in the fixture. There have now been seven 200 plus totals scored in those aforementioned nine games, while England fell narrowly short with 199.

As teams ramp up preparations for next month’s T20 World Cup in Australia, fast and true pitches suit everyone. So I’m expecting more of the same tomorrow.

The third is the 17/10 betfair are offering on Pakistan to win and both teams to score 170 plus in the game.

Salt to pepper em’ and bring home the player performance punt

You may have recalled me suggesting Phil Salt’s player performance with bet365 at over 23.5 points in game one. He nailed it for us with 35.

Though the bet wasn’t available yesterday, he scored 30.

Anyway, the bet is back again, but this time they have upped the mark to over 29.5 at 5/6. I still think that is worth taking on. Remember, a point a run, 10 per catch and 25 per stumping for a wicketkeeper.

The Rauf is on Fire!

Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf has taken 11 wickets in his last six T20 appearances for Pakistan through this month, both in the opening two matches of this series and at the Asia Cup.

He bowls in the ideal times of innings as well, particularly at the death, and I think the 6/4 on his total match wickets to be over 1.5 wickets with bet365 is a good bet.

I’m also going to show faith in his fellow pacer Shahnawaz Dahani, who I really like. I had him down 15/4 to be Pakistan’s top bowler in game one and missed out narrowly when he took two wickets - the same as Rauf - and was only marginally more expensive than his colleague.

His price has not altered with bet365, so let’s go again and hope that if he is beaten here it’s at least by Rauf and we have limited the damage.
