ICC T20 World Cup Pakistan vs England Playing XI: Both the teams had an impressive run in the semi-finals and now it remains to be seen whether their playing-11 will change in the final.
Pak Vs Eng Probable Playing Xi
The teams of England vs Pakistan are preparing for the final match of the ICC T20 World Cup-2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday. There is no doubt that both the teams will try their best to win this match. Both teams have won this World Cup once. Whichever team wins this time will get their second title. With this, they will join West Indies as the only team to win the T20 World Cup twice. Success to this extent depends on the playing-11 of both the teams. However, the weather report says that rain will hamper the match.
In 2007, Pakistan’s T20 World Cup was won by India’s final team. Then in 2009 Pakistan team reached the final and won. England won the final in 2010 but lost to West Indies in 2016.
Will England change playing XI?
The question now is which players will get a chance in the playing-11 in this match. England made two changes to the team in the second semi-final against India. Phil Salt got a chance to replace David Malan. So Chris Jordan replaced Mark Wood there. Both these players are out due to injury. If Malan and Wood’s injuries are cured… England captain Jos Buttler will give priority to both of them. If Wood is not fit then David Willey could also be a chance to replace Jordan. Regarding the injury of the two players, England coach Matthew Mott said that he will consider the selection of the two before the final.
Change in Pakistan team too..
Meanwhile, Pakistan produced a one-sided performance to beat New Zealand by seven wickets in the first semi-final. In this match, captain Babar Azam’s return to form can be said to be a threat to England. Babar is expected to field the same 11 players as against New Zealand. There is no chance of any change in the playing XI if no player is injured.
Probable playing of both teams 11..
England – Jos Buttler (captain / wicketkeeper), Alex Hales, David Malan / Phil Salt, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingston, Moeen Ali, Sam Karan, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan / David Willey, Adil Rashid.
