England vs Pakistan 3rd Test 2020

Can you believe people complained about the lack of play during the England vs Pakistan 2nd Test? Chill people, at least England is allowing cricket. Speaking of which, what is going to happen in the 3rd Test England vs Pakistan?

Pakistan has all the tools to become the number one test side. A great right-arm fast bowler in Naseem Shah, a great left-arm bowler in Shaheen Afridi and a potentially legendary batsman Babar Azam. Unfortunately, Pakistan tends to prove they don’t know how to use such great players. Its only been 4 years since Pakistan was the top-ranked test side, but since then their record is abysmal.

Compare this to an England side gaining in confidence and on the ascendancy. Winning 15 of the last 25 games the England cricket team “look the goods”.

It’s another win for England for Cricket-Betting.in tipsters and very little rain forecast to spoil the party.

England v Pakistan 3rd Test 2020 Match Prediction

england cricket
England to win. No draw this time

England will be looking forward to the Southampton pitch; we are told Simon Lee, the Head Groundsman is using a different strip to the one the second Test was played on, bringing into play the quicks, and possibly rendering the spinners superfluous. 

Time for England’s openers to score runs and we expect them to oblige. If they can’t score in these conditions, there is no hope for them.

Pakistan needs to bowl better with Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Abbas and Naseem Shah leading the attack. Interestingly, Pakistan odds are shorter at 3.50 for the win compared to 4.50 for the 2nd Test. Given these odds, there is not enough value in the England v Pakistan 3rd Test 2020 odds for either side to make it worthwhile. We suggest looking at other betting options within the match instead of the win.

The forecast is scattered showers but enough sunny periods for five days of cricket. We should see a result. In four Tests at the Ageas Bowl, spinners average 30.27 (33 wickets) while for seamers its 31.73 and 94 wickets.
