After winning the third T20I and taking a 2-1 lead in the 7-match series, England will look to consolidate their lead with another win on Sunday. The match will be played at the National Stadium, Karachi. Notably, England travelled to Pakistan for the first time since 2005.
In the first T20I, England defeated Pakistan by six wickets. England chased down a 159-run target with four balls to spare courtesy of a fifty from Alex Hales and an unbeaten 42 run knock off 25 balls from Harry Brook. Earlier, Luke Wood picked three wickets for 24 runs from his four over spell. In the second game, Babar Azam's unbeaten hundred and his unbeaten 203 run-partnership with Mohammad Rizwan (88*) saw Pakistan win the match by 10 wickets. On Friday, all-round England bounced back with a win as Pakistan fell short of a 222-run target by 63 runs. Considering the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022, all the matches will be crucial for both the teams. A strong 20-member England squad has arrived in Pakistan. On the other hand, the Babar Azam-led side is without the services of pacer Shaheen Afridi but overall they have some dangerous players in their ranks. They would look to capitalise on the home conditions. England have won each of their last three T20I matches against Pakistan. Overall, the two teams have played a total of 24 matches against each other. Pakistan have won seven and lost 15. As we gear up for the fourth T20I, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the PAK vs ENG 4th T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team betting tip from the PAK vs ENG head-to-head contest. Take a look!
England are the second ranked T20I team in the world, while Pakistan are currently placed at the fourth spot. England have won four of their last five T20I matches against Pakistan. Overall, the two teams have played a total of 24 matches against each other. Pakistan have won seven and lost 15. Ahead of the first T20I, we had predicted that England would give Pakistan a tough time despite having not travelled to the country since 2005 and not having the experience of playing any T20I cricket in Pakistan as the players from the side had played a lot of T20 cricket under similar conditions in India, UAE and even Pakistan (PSL). The likes of Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Alex Hales, Dawid Malan, David Willey, Mark Wood and Chris Woakes are T20 globetrotters and conditions hardly matter to them. The side has two quality spinners in Ali and Adil Rashid, and the pace unit also has enough fire in them to shake any opposition. England have found new match-winners in the form of Ben Duckett and Harry Brook. The duo are the leading run-scorers for England in the series so far. Adil Rashid is the leading wicket-taker with four scalps and is followed by Luke Wood and Mark Wood who have picked three wickets apiece. Notably, the latter played his first match of the series on Friday and bowled consistently around 96-97 mph mark to rattle the Pakistan batting line-up. Opener Will Jacks made his debut in the same match and scored 40 runs off just 22 balls. Alex Hales has made an impact straightaway after returning from his three-year-long exile. Under the leadership of the very able Moeen Ali, the England unit looks unstoppable at the moment. Pakistan have had their fair share of troubles in recent times. After back-to-back losses against Sri Lanka at the Asia Cup, that further has been exposed. The batting unit is heavily dependent on the top-order, and their premier pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is injured. The middle-order failure is already a big headache for the Men in Green. England players arrived for the series after their participation in The Hundred 2022. The same has warmed them up pretty well. Until and unless Babar and Rizwan rescue Pakistan again, England have high chances of taking a 3-1 lead on Sunday.

Shan Masood and Alex Hales are my top two player betting tips for the PAK vs ENG 4th T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
After his stunning campaign in the English domestic season, Shan Masood, was recalled in the Pakistan team for the first time since 2019 and was even included in the Pakistan side for the T20 World Cup 2022. He made his T20I debut for Pakistan on Tuesday but could score only seven runs. In the second match, he did not get a chance to bat as Pakistan won by 10 wickets. However, in the third T20I, he was the silver lining on a rather forgettable day for Pakistan. The top three scored in single digits in the 222-run chase and just when it looked like Pakistan's innings would be wrapped up soon by the fire-breathing English quicks, Masood played a gritty 40-ball innings which saw him score 66 runs including three four and four sixes. The innings would come as a major relief for Pakistan who are desperately in search of someone who can hold the innings in the middle-order. In the County Championship 2022, Masood scored 1074 runs in eight matches at an average of 82.61. In the Vitality Blast 2022, he scored 547 runs at an average of 45.58 in 14 matches. He finished as the fifth highest run-scorer in the tournament. The southpaw featured in five matches of Royal London Cup 2022 and scored 203 runs at an average of 50.75. Very recently, he was seen playing in the National T20 Cup in Pakistan. He scored 54, 8, 53* and 45* in the first four matches before registering scores of 10, 0, 9, 15 and 11. Overall, Masood has scored a total of 3068 runs at an average of 27.89 in 120 T20 matches. He has one hundred and 21 fifties to his name in the format. There was a lot of pressure on Masood as his Pakistan comeback after three long years came at a time when the T20 World Cup was just a month away. The fifty in the third match would have given him a sigh of relief and struck loads of confidence. It would be no surprise if Masood emerges as Pakistan top run-scorer on Sunday as well. If you feel the same, proceed to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Shan Masood to score over 18 runs from the PAK vs ENG head-to-head encounter.
Ahead of the first T20I, we predicted that Alex Hales in all likelihood would score over 21.5 runs. He proved us right by hitting a comeback fifty. Hales scored 53 off 40 which included seven fours. In the second match we predicted the same and he did not disappoint us again by scoring 26 off 21. Hales has made a very impressive comeback. Notably, he is playing for England for the first time after 2019 when he failed a recreational drug test for the second time and lost his place in the England's World Cup squad that year. The 33-year-old has done the hard yards and barged his way back in the squad after repeatedly being ignored in the last couple of years. He has taken BBL by storm in the past scoring 383 runs in 13 matches at an average of 31.91 and a strike rate of 148.44 in the 2021-22 season. He was the second highest run-scorer for his team. He was the top-scorer in the 2022 season with 543 runs at an average of 38.78 and a strike rate of 161.60. In The Hundred 2022, he scored 259 in nine matches and finished as the fifth highest run-scorer in the series. In Vitality Blast 2022, he scored 374 runs at a whopping strike rate of 193.78. Overall, he has played 361 T20 matches and scored 10183 - highest by any England batter. He has five hundreds and 64 fifties in the T20 format to his name. In T20Is, he has scored 1723 runs in 62 matches at an average and a strike rate of 31.32 and 136.31 respectively. The pressure was immense on his England comeback after three long years but the monkey is off his back now. His sublime form and the experience of playing in the PSL is expected to help him in scoring over 22.5 runs again in the crucial fourth T20I. If you feel the same, proceed to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Alex Hales to over 22.5 runs from the PAK vs ENG head-to-head encounter.
