Pakistan’s woes in England continue to haunt the cricket-loving nation as the visitors haven’t yet tasted their first victory and are even on the verge of two back-to-back series loss (PTV Sports Live).
Babar Azam-led greens shirts will play the third T20 International against England at Manchester on Tuesday, which would also culminate their two-month-long stay on foreign land.
PTV Sports will telecast the third T20I Live from 10:00 pm PST
It’s a must-win game for Pakistan as after the first T20I being abandoned for rain and wet outfield, England sealed a comfortable five-wicket victory in the second T20I.

In the second T20I at Manchester on Sunday, Mohammad Amir suffered a hamstring injury; therefore, he is most likely to be replaced by Wahab Riaz for the last match.
The right-hand batsman Haider Ali may also feature in the third T20I as debutant if the veteran batsman Shoaib Malik is rested.
Shoaib Malik could score just 14 runs off 11 balls in the second T20I before he was caught at extra cover.
Last Sunday, while batting first Pakistan put a decent score of 195 on the board for the loss of 4 wickets.
The world’s top-ranked batsman Babar Azam once again exhibited brilliant batting form and smashed 56 runs. Mohammad Hafeez struck a quickfire 69 runs off just 36 balls with 4 sixes and 5 fours.
However, England reached the target in 19.1 overs. Its Captain Eoin Morgan ripped apart the Pakistani bowling and scored 66 runs off 33 balls. Dawid Malan also scored unbeaten 54 runs.
The fourth-ranked Pakistan has recently been below the par in all formats including T20 Internationals.
In their last 15 T20Is, Pakistan won just three games and lost nine while three matches ended without any result.
