England v Pakistan 2020 – T20I Squads

England have recalled batsman Dawid Malan and seamer Chris Jordan. All-rounder Lewis Gregory is also back, while batsman James Vince has been left out of the squad.

Jordan was a popular pick in the Big Bash League and Pakistan Super League earlier this year. England have also named three reserves in bowler Pat Brown, all-rounder Liam Livingstone and seamer Reece Topley.

Former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and batsman Fakhar Zaman have been recalled to the Pakistan squad. Opening batsman Shan Masood, who performed well in the 2020 PSL, was not chosen.

The uncapped Haider Ali, seamer Haris Rauf of Big Bash fame, and veteran left-armer Wahab Riaz are in. Babar Azam will captain the squad.

England v Pakistan 2020 – T20I Series Preview, Latest Odds and Predictions

Our top cricket writers will be producing match previews packed with our expert free tips for every one of the three T20Is played in this series.

We will make sure we highlight our best bets for each individual clash at least 24 hours before the action gets underway.

For the overall series win, it is England that are considered the favourites on home soil. They are priced at 1.62 with CampoBet to come out on top.

Pakistan, who made England work so hard for their narrow Test series success, can be backed with CampoBet at 2.31.

England will need to be better than their recent limited-overs showing again Ireland, albeit in the one-day format. Too often Morgan has been needed to rescue them at key moments and it means they could be vulnerable to this Pakistan team’s dangerous bowling attack.

Given the prices, it could be worth siding with Pakistan to pick up the series win, especially if they can bag an early victory with only three games to play.

Back Banton to be England’s Top Batsman

Tom Banton had a fine rise to prominence last season and can now kick-on on the international stage with England.

He played some fine T20 innings in the T20 Blast for Somerset and continued to shine for Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash and Peshawar Zalmi in the PSL. Those experiences in Pakistan could prove vital as he comes face-to-face with bowlers he knows a little more about.

Jonny Bairstow rightly heads this market at 3.0 but taking on that England top order with Banton could be the value play for this series.

He can be backed at 5.0 with bet365 to be England top series batsman.

Hafeez to Outshine Babar

Mohammad Hafeez could be an interesting pick to be Pakistan’s main man with the bat for the series.

He didn’t feature in the T20Is against Australia last winter but did smash an unbeaten 67 against Bangladesh when last in action in the shortest format.

Babar Azam is odds on to take this honour but he could be worth taking on in English conditions at such a prohibitive price. Hafeez, however, can be backed at 6.0 with bet365.

A wildcard selection could come in the form of uncapped Haider Ali. He had an eye-catching PSL can could be worth noting at 13.0.

While it may be a big ask for him to outshine more established players over three matches, he could also be one to consider on a match-by-match basis should he be handed the opportunity to shine.
