Series locked at 1-1 after high-scoring contests at Trent Bridge and Headingley
Toss Pakistan chose to bat vs England
Pakistan will bat first after winning the toss in the series-deciding third T20I at Old Trafford. Babar Azam called correctly, as he did at Headingley, but this time, opted to set England a target instead of trying to chase one, having fallen to a 45-run defeat in the previous game.
Pakistan will look to round out their tour of England on a positive note, having earlier succumbed in the ODI series to a 3-0 defeat.
