Pakistan vs England Odds: Two tips for the fifth T20 in Lahore
Pakistan vs England T20 odds
We head into match number five of the seven game T20 series between Pakistan and England, with the score currently tied very nicely at 2-2.
The previous encounter saw Pakistan win by a dramatic three runs, in a game that had all the excitement you’d expect in a Scorsese classic. Game five will see the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore host, and you can watch live on Sky Sports on Wednesday 28 September.
With the T20 World Cup less than a month away, both sides will be looking to gain any sort of advantage by taking the series lead here, and we’ve previewed the game, picking out two tips that have caught our eye.
Pakistan vs England Tips
Starting off, we’re looking at the home side to take the lead in the series, and for both sides to hit over 160 runs. This bet landed in the last fixture between these two teams on Sunday, and also in Pakistan’s other win over England, coming in the second fixture when the hosts registered 200+, and the visitors 199.
The enthralling finale of the previous win will have the home crowd electrified as always, with Mohammad Rizwan looking to build off another fantastic 88. It should be another close game, but I expect the hosts to grab the initiative in the series and take the lead for the first time.
Next up, we’re looking at another bet which has landed in both of Pakistan’s wins during this Tour, which is for Haris Rauf to be the top home bowler. Rauf got himself two wickets in the second game, followed by some incredible death overs bowling to get three last time out.
Rauf has recorded Pakistan’s best bowling figures in an innings during this series, which came during the previous game, and is currently the top wicket taker of any team in the Tour, with six to his name so far, two ahead of any other player.
Best of luck if you’re following these bets, and please gamble responsibly.
