ENG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction: England vs Pakistan 3rd Test – 21 August 2020. Hosts England will take on Pakistan in the 3rd test match of the three-match Test series. England can’t lose the series now whereas Pakistan can’t win it. The second test was almost a wash-out and we can only hope that the rain will stay away in this game.
Hosts England would be poised to win their second consecutive test series after the COVID-19 outbreak. English fast bowlers were on a roll in the last game and would like to continue their good form. The way James Anderson bowled in the last game will give a lot of positives to the English bowling line-up. The likes of Zak Crawley also got a half-century and would again like to play well in the absence of Ben Stokes.
Pakistan’s batting failed again in the last game in front of a strong English bowling line-up. Fawad Alam’s return to test cricket was not a memorable one and he got out on a duck. Babar Azam needs to lead this batting line-up. The pace bowling trio will be fresh in this game and would like to level the series for Pakistan.
England vs Pakistan Pitch Conditions and Toss
Ageas Bowl pitch is horrible for batting on the last day of the game and the spinners also come into play. The winning captain would be tempted to bat first in this game.

ENG vs PAK Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
Mohammad Rizwan will be our wicket-keeper in this game. Rizwan played really well in the last game and proved his composure with the bat. His inning of 72 runs was well balanced and he would like to pile-up more runs in the tournament.
ENG vs PAK Dream11 Batsmen
Ollie Pope and Joe Root will our batsmen from the England side. Pope has been showing his potential for a long time now and he is becoming a consistent player too. Pope’s technique is perfect for test cricket and he will be an asset in this game as well whereas Root has not been in the greatest of forms but he is a wonderful player and will be a part of our team in this game as well.
Babar Azam will our batsman from the Pakistan side. Babar has scored 121 runs in 3 innings so far in the series and has been decent with the bat. The Pakistani team would definitely expect more from him and he would like to play a big knock in this game.
ENG vs PAK Dream11 All-Rounders
Sam Curran and Chris Woakes will be our all-rounders from the England side. Woakes has been the underrated assassin of the team and has been taking a lot of crucial wickets for the team. He has picked five wickets in the series so far and would like to continue his good form whereas Curran’s left-arm seam bowling is perfect for test cricket. He picked just a single wicket in the last game but will be a vital cog of England’s bowling line-up.
ENG vs PAK Dream11 Bowlers
From England, Stuart Broad and James Anderson will make it into our team. Broad was on fire against the West Indies and picked 16 wickets in just a couple of games, he was the highest wicket-taker of the Windies series and he is the highest wicket-taker of this series as well with 10 wickets to his name whereas Anderson announced his return to form in the last game by picking three wickets. He was swinging the red-cherry in both directions and will be a lethal bowler here.
From Pakistan, the deadly trio of Yasir Shah, Mohammad Abbas, and Shaheen Afridi make it into the team. Shah has picked 11 wickets till now in the series and is the 2nd highest wicket-taker of the series whereas Abbas has been the best pacer of the Pakistani side and has picked 5 wickets to his name. Afridi is also a deadly bowler with the new ball and he proved that in the last game. This trio should be picked.
Captain and Vice-Captain
The duo of Chris Woakes and Stuart Broad will be our captain and vice-captain in this game respectively.
