Pakistan meets England in the sixth game of the IT20 series in Lahore on Friday evening. The hosts come into this fixture with a 3-2 lead and looking for their third successive victory in the series. They won Wednesday evening’s match in Lahore by six runs. Pakistan has the momentum in the series and looked even stronger with Shadab Khan on their side on Wednesday. They will fancy their chances of making it three wins in a row in this game. England has lost two narrow games in succession but will know that they are not too far away from turning defeats into victories. They need a couple of large scores from their top batters to regain their form.

With the series at 3-2 to Pakistan and the last two matches won by only six and three runs, expecting a very close match. During Match 4 and Match 5 of the series, either team could have won but it was Pakistan who were able to get over the line. England have been one boundary away from winning both matches and this could be another tight game. The first game of the series in Lahore was a brilliant fixture with the identity of the winner unknown until the conclusion of the final over. The teams are very closely matched and we are predicting another very tight match. Considering the team combination, Pakistan is expected to win this match.
