The third and final Test between the hosts England and the visitors Pakistan will begin on Friday (21st August) at The Rose Bowl (Southampton). Before this Test match, England are leading this series by 1-0. So, Pakistan must have to win this upcoming Test to save this series, while another draw is enough for the hosts to win this three-match Test series.

Old Trafford (Manchester) hosted the opening Test of this series. It was a very tight game but the hosts England finally managed to win that Test by three wickets.

The Rose Bowl (Southampton) hosted the second Test of this series where the rainy weather discouraged that game and only 134.3 overs were possible to bowl in that entire Test which couldn’t complete the first two innings of the Test.

England: Joe Root (c), James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Dominic Bess, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Zak Crawley, Sam Curran, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Dom Sibley, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

Pakistan: Azhar Ali (c), Babar Azam (vc), Abid Ali, Asad Shafiq, Fawad Alam, Imam-ul-Haq, Kashif Bhatti, Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shan Masood, Sohail Khan and Yasir Shah.

The Rose Bowl (Southampton) has already organised two Tests in this season. While West Indies claimed a four-wicket victory at this venue in early July, the unstoppable rainy weather forced to settle with a boring draw in the previous Test against Pakistan in the last week.

Both the Tests of this season at this venue hadn’t the high-scoring encounter.

Once again the non-stop rain can spoil the upcoming Test between England and Pakistan. Except for the fourth day of this Test match (24th August), there are the very good chances that rain could interrupt the Test match.

While it is the must-win game for the Pakistan team, their batsmen must have to perform well. This Pakistan team is really competitive, especially when England are currently struggling in Test cricket due to the lack of in-form batsmen. Both the bowling sides have dominated in this series, and they are once again going to play a crucial role in the series-decider.

Once again England will miss their all-rounder Ben Stokes. While most of the other English batsmen are struggling to maintain consistency, opener Dom Sibley has maintained the consistent image with the bat very well.

While the most wicket-taker of this series Stuart Broad (10 wickets) is currently in great form, another experienced English pacer James Anderson also bowled well in the previous Test match.

We can’t also put out the game changers Jos Buttler and Chris Woakes, who played the vital roles in the fourth innings of the first Test of this series that helped the England team to snatch a victory. Youngster Sam Curran is another name, who has mostly played crucial roles in the home Tests.

While Shan Masood impressed with his batting in the first Test of this series, another opener Abid Ali and wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan performed impressively in the rain-marred second Test. However, Babar Azam is still the vital cog in this batting line-up.

The pacers Mohammad Abbas, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Naseem Shah have impressed in this tour. The leg-spinner Yasir Shah is currently the second most wicket-taker in this Test series with nine wickets.
