Shahid AfridiEngland will look to complete their UAE tour on a high as they take on Pakistan in the three-match T20 International series starting on Thursday 26th November. The first two T20s will be played in Dubai while the third one will be played in Sharjah and we will be offering all the cricket betting tips here at Bet King.

Both teams come to the series on the back of an impressive T20 form. The hosts have won their last two series against Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka while the Three Lions have shown some impressive form of their own by defeating Australia and New Zealand.

Pakistan would be smarting after the loss in the ODI series. The hosts were favorites to roll over the visitors in favorable conditions – more so after the comprehensive win in the first match. But, England turned the tables to record a memorable come-back series win. Pakistan will be eager to set the record straight in the entertaining T20 format. The returning Shahid Afridi and Umar Akmal will be crucial along with the veterans Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez.

England would like to believe that they have a slight edge after the impressive ODI performance. The core performers from that ODI win continue to be part of the T20 squad – Reece Topley, Alex Hales, Jos Buttler and Eoin Morgan. With an eye on the T20 World Cup, England would like to treat this as a platform to iron out their performances.

The Three Lions will be wary of the mercurial Pakistan side which is the most unpredictable side in the world. However, the aggressive approach from this England side is refreshing and gives hope to its supporters that it can match, and even better, Pakistan.

Morgan will be crucial for the visitors but it could be Hales at the top of the order who can prove to be a match winner. At odds of $4.00 at CrownBet, back him to be England’s top batsman. For Pakistan, we recommend a play on Mohammad Hafeez at odds of $4.00 at CrownBet.

Reece Topley has shown great variety with the ball for England and looks good value at $4.50 at CrownBet to be their leading wicket taker. For Pakistan, Shahid Afridi is always dangerous at $4.50 at CrownBet.

It is difficult to predict a winner in T20s but if form is anything to go by, England should be the favorites with CrownBet listing them at a price of $1.72. But, T20 not just entertains but it also surprises. Will there be one final surprise in this trip for England?
