The squads for the third and final Tests have been announced by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
The ECB has not made any changes to England’s 14-member squad. At the same time, the PCBO did not bring any change in their 18-member squad. However, Pakistan can change the XI of the last Test.
The hosts are 1-0 up in the series after defeating Pakistan by 3 wickets in the first Test of the three-match Test series. The second Test of the series was dominated by rain. The match officials announced the Test draw with the consent of the two captains during the first innings of England after the end of Pakistan’s first innings.

However, Pakistan is desperate to avoid a series loss against England. August 14 was Pakistan’s Independence Day. Despite being late for Independence Day, Pakistan wants to give the country the gift of victory by winning the third and final Test.
This will set a precedent for Pakistan to end the series draw in England for the third time in a row. However, Pakistan also has a record of winning three consecutive series on English soil from 1986 to 1996.
The third and final Test between England and Pakistan starts in Southampton on Friday (August 21). England hosted a Test series against Pakistan on home soil in Corona. Earlier, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) restored cricket to the field 117 days after the Test series against the West Indies began on 7 July.
England started the first Test series against Pakistan at the end of the West Indies. As a result, the English were able to come out of the circle of tasting defeat in the first match of the previous five series.
England and Pakistan are hopeful that rain will not be a problem in the third and final Test of the series. England coach Chris Silverwood looks forward to the performance of the field players to taste the series win. “We want to win the series,” he said. That being the case, it would be a great thing.
After the West Indies, the series win against Pakistan will add another chapter to the record of achievements. However, the team will have to play better in the last Test. We want to win the Test because every match involves the ICC Test Championship. With that in mind, we have planned to win the match.
England is third in the points table of the ICC Test Championship. The English has 289 points in 14 matches. If they can win or tie this Test, England will overtake Australia in second place in the points table. However, if they draw, the English will not be able to go above Ajid. That’s why Silvoud’s eyes are on the points table.
“We are thinking more about the match,” he said. Match winning is very important for us. Winning will add 40 points to our account. Since the championship is involved in this match, we will do whatever it takes to win.
India is at the top of the table with 360 points in 9 matches. Australia is in second place with 298 points in 10 matches. England’s point difference with Ajit is 16. Pakistan is fifth in the table with 153 points in 6 matches.
If Pakistan wins this match, Pakistan has a chance to rise to the fourth position. But Pakistan is not thinking about the points table. They want to give the gift of victory to the country at a historic time.
Pakistan coach Misbah-ul-Haq said, “It is special to celebrate Independence Day during a Test match. Pakistan failed to win the previous Test due to hostile weather. However, some good gifts could be given in the historical time of the country.
But we hope that in the last Test we will be able to give the country some good gifts. As a coach, I can say this is the month of independence. So it is our duty to give victory to the country even if it is late.
In the past, Pakistan had several successes in the month of Independence Day. Misbah reminded them, “Pakistan has some great memories of previous tours to England. Pakistan won the first Test against England in 1954 after Independence Day. We had a great win at Lord’s in 1982. But from a personal point of view, it is a matter of pride that I was able to bring equality in the series by winning the Oval Test on 14 August 2016. ‘
Independence Day is invigorating Pakistan. Memories of the last two trips are also inspiring the whole team, Misbah said, ‘Our last two tours in England were in 2016 and 2017. In 2016, I was the captain of the team in a four-match series. We draw that series.
Inspired by the memories of that series, Pakistan again got a taste of a draw against England in the two-match series in 2016. This time the memories of the last two tours are inspiring us a lot. We can end the series with confidence.
