Find out the today match prediction of Eng vs Pak 1st Test at the Old Trafford.

ENG vs PAK 1st Test Match Prediction

After thrashing the West Indies 2-1, England won their 1st test after the long cricketing break. Today, England will take on Pakistan in another test series on their home soil. As per the cricket expert prediction, England batsman will face the heat as Pakistan has quality pacers.

Nowadays, England has a habit of the poor start of the series, but later they come back well to clinch the series. They might look to change this tag against Pakistan in this series.

England brought their top-class pacers into the squad in the form of Anderson, Broad, and Jofra Archer. On the other hand, the number one all-rounder Ben Stokes is also another option for England to bowl. If you talk about England batting, they have plenty of options at the top order.

Pakistan on the other hand, playing their first test after the COVID pandemic. The bowling attack looks really strong on the paper, whereas batting looks a bit inexperienced. As per Misbah, if Pakistan goes with two spinners then Haris Sohail may miss the game, who played in their last three Tests at home to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

We can expect Shadab Khan at number seven position with wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan moved up to number six. Sohail Khan took two five-wicket hauls in the warm-up matches still, he might find himself on the sidelines.
