Despite only one of the three matches ending in a result, England won the recent Test series against Pakistan relatively comfortably.
The players from the Test squad are all now either taking a rest or playing with their counties and it’s time for the limited overs squad to get back to action.
Eoin Morgan will ensure that his players are raring to go ahead of their first T20 match against Pakistan on Friday night and we fancy England to make the most of home conditions and win at a best price of 8/13 with 888Sport.

England vs Pakistan Recommended Bets:
England’s goals are simple to say but difficult to do.
They want to be the best cricket team in the world at every format of the game.
The only way to achieve that aim is to test themselves against the highest level of competition possible and Eoin Morgan has made it clear that he views Pakistan as one of the most dangerous T20 teams around.
The bookies make England the favourites to win the upcoming T20 series but in this format of the game and against opponents with so many weapons, it’s going to be tight.
Pakistan showed in the Test series that they can adapt to English conditions.
That was particularly true of their seam bowlers who were excellent with the new ball.
We expect the tourists to take some early wickets at Old Trafford and force England to bat deep if they are to justify their position as favourites.
Morgan has played several important captain’s innings before, coming in to steady the ship, and may well be forced to do so again.
Therefore, the odds of 5/1 that Boylesports are quoting about Morgan being England’s top batsman look generous to us.
