Pakistan to face England in one-off T20 match today
CARDIFF: Pakistan takes on England in a one-off T20 match at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff today.
Pakistan has so far been impressive in all three of their matches against county sides, beating Kent by 100 runs, Northamptonshire by eight wickets and Leicestershire by 58 runs.
The Sarfaraz-led XI will be relying on their batting line-up which has been in excellent form so far. Imad Wasim, Fakhar Zaman, and Babar Azam have all made hundreds in the country matches and will be looking to continue their form.
Mohammad Amir will also be in the spotlight after having been left out of the preliminary World Cup squad. In his only game on tour so far, he picked up one wicket.
England on the other hand, have called up uncapped Sussex batsman Phil Salt to replace Dawid Malan for Sunday’s game after Malan suffered a groin injury while batting against Ireland.
However, England will not be fielding their strongest line-up as the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali and Ben Stokes will not feature here after their IPL stints.
The match between England and Pakistan will start at 6:30 pm Pakistan Standard Time.
