Pakistan lost to Zimbabwe, England went down against Ireland – their campaigns were almost done, but they rallied, got back on track and are now facing one another in the final of T20 World Cup. This match will take place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and in many ways, will be a repeat of the final that took place between the sides back in 1992.
Both sides have found their groove and will not be too keen to change the combination of their sides before the match. England would want to include Mark Wood in the side – the pacer was not fit for the match against India and his inclusion would certainly boost England’s chances. Also, they will be keen to get back Dawid Malan for this crucial match. Barring these, England have roles defined for all the players.

The weather does not look too promising for the final clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. There are high chances of rain, but the ICC have changed rules and we should be able to get 10 over per innings for the match to have a result.
Pakistan vs England match prediction
Pakistan are a form side coming into this match, but England were sensational in their last match against India as they romped home by 10 wickets. It promises to be a cracking contest, but Pakistan hold slight edge owing to their superb bowling attack.
