England win the toss and bowl against Pakistan
England have won the toss and, as in the second T20I, elected to field first. On a fresh pitch, Eoin Morgan’s side are unchanged, which means no opportunity for David Willey to make his mark after being omitted from England’s squads for next week’s series against Australia.
Pakistan skipper Babar Azam admitted they would have bowled first, too. Pakistan make three changes to the side, with Haider Ali making his debut. Sarfaraz Ahmed returns to the side as wicketkeeper, replacing Mohammad Rizwan, while Wahab Riaz replaces the injured Mohammad Amir.
Babar Azam’s side needs to win to avoid defeat in the T20I series, while England’s win confirms a T20I series win. Pakistan are yet to win an international match on tour, having lost the Test series 1-0.
