- Jonny Bairstow will return to England’s batting line-up. He made 51 from 43 balls in his last IT20 and is a great bet for England’s leading run scorer in this match. David Willey took 3-27 in England’s last IT20 against Sri Lanka in Southampton, he is a reliable option for England’s top wicket taker in this match.
- Babar Azam returned to form in the final ODI making his highest score in the format. He is a strong tip for Pakistan’s highest run scorer in this clash. With the ball, Haris Rauf took 4-65 in the final ODI and is a consistent wicket taker in IT20s. He is a good choice for Pakistan’s leading wicket taker in this game.
- England will welcome back Jos Buttler who missed the majority of the Sri Lanka games through injury. He bats at the top of the order and is never far from making runs. Mohammad Rizwan made 74 from 58 balls and took 2 catches in the final ODI. It is a close run thing but we are backing Jos Buttler to be the top wicket-keeper in this match
