England vs Pakistan 4th T20 Match Prediction 2024

ENG vs PAK 4th T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

A series which has been dominated by poor weather comes to a close on Thursday evening as England take on Pakistan in the fourth and final T20I. Both the first and third games have not seen a toss with England winning the only match at Edgbaston on Saturday. Read on as we preview this game. The fixture begins at The Oval, London at 18:30 local time on May 30th.

With England’s first match at the 2024 T20 World Cup scheduled for Tuesday, we expect to see changes for this T20I so that all of the squad has had game-time ahead of the tournament. However, they should still have enough quality to win at The Oval.

Pakistan will be desperate to put in a strong performance in this game on Thursday as their first game at the World Cup is on Wednesday. There were some positive moments in the defeat at Edgbaston and we expect them to be competitive again in this clash.

ENG vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

Only one of the last five completed T20Is at The Oval have been won by the team fielding first. Therefore, we predict that the captains will want to bat first in this match.

ENG vs PAK Pitch Report

The pace bowlers should have more success on this pitch than the spinners, particularly with the overhead conditions also likely to be favourable. There will be some good pace in the pitch though and whoever bats first will be targeting 200.

London Weather Report

The forecast for most of the week is for dry weather in South London but Thursday does have rain in the early afternoon. The temperature should get up to 16 degrees in the early evening and we expect to see a full match.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Captain Jos Buttler was due to miss the third game of the series in Cardiff as his wife was about to give birth and we predict that he will also miss this match. Moeen Ali will lead the team which we expect to include Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley and Mark Wood.

ENG Key Players

  • Phil Salt – The right-hander is expected to take on wicket-keeping duties in Buttler’s absence but we do not expect this to change his aggressive approach to batting.
  • Will Jacks – The number three batter is playing at his home ground and impressed with his clean hitting at Edgbaston on Saturday in the second T20I.
  • Sam Curran – The left-arm medium fast bowler has not appeared in the series yet but will be game-ready after captaining Punjab Kings in the 2024 IPL.
  • Jofra Archer – Ahead of this series, the plan for the returning pacer would have been to play no more than two games so we expect him to be fit and ready to go again in this match.

ENG Team Form

England have won the only game of this series and have won two of their last three completed T20Is.

England Predicted Playing 11

Ben Duckett, Phil Salt (wk), Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali (c), Liam Livingstone, Jofra Archer, Tom Hartley, Sam Curran, Mark Wood

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

PAK Team News

With two of the games washed out in this series, getting players on the pitch has been a struggle for both sides! Usman Khan and Abrar Ahmed were scheduled to come into the side on Tuesday and we expect them to be in the XI for this match also.

PAK Key Players

  • Babar Azam – The captain is a very consistent player although sometimes question marks are raised about his strike-rate. He should enjoy the pace of the wicket in London and score quickly.
  • Mohammad Rizwan – The opener is expected to give up the keeper gloves for this game and instead will play purely as an opener. He will not be afraid to use his crease to put the bowlers off.
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi – The left-arm quick will open the bowling once again and will be looking to add to his tally of 91 wickets from 65 innings in T20Is.
  • Imad Wasim – The Cardiff born all-rounder will have been very disappointed not to play in Wales on Tuesday but he was very impressive in the second T20I and will be keen to contribute again.

PAK Team Form

Pakistan have not won on this tour of England but they did beat Ireland twice earlier this month.

Pakistan Predicted Playing 11

Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam (c), Azam Khan (wk), Iftikhar Ahmed, Usman Khan, Imad Wasim, Fakhar Zaman, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Amir, Abrar Ahmed

Who will win England vs Pakistan 4th T20 Match?

England have an excellent record across all formats at The Oval and they will be well supported by a home crowd keen to give them a strong send off to the T20 World Cup. We expect Pakistan to be competitive but England will come into the game as the top side.

🏆 England vs Pakistan Prediction

This series has been a huge disappointment for the players, fans and the broadcasters but maybe the additional rest will benefit both teams ahead of the T20 World Cup. With slightly better weather forecast for Thursday evening, the venue could well produce an exciting game to finish the series. We are predicting a high scoring and close game but are backing England to come out on top.
