England will lock horns against Pakistan in a four-match T20I series, beginning on Wednesday (May 22) at Headingley, Leeds.

This series will mark England’s return to T20I cricket after a five-month hiatus. The side last played a T20I series against the West Indies in December 2023. Since then, many English cricketers have been active in various franchise tournaments globally, including the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.

On the other hand, Pakistan will enter the series brimming with confidence following their recent success in Ireland. The Babar Azam-led side clinched a T20I series victory against Ireland with a 2-1 margin. This recent triumph has provided Pakistan with significant momentum, which they aim to carry into the series against England.

Headingley Pitch Report

The Headingley pitch is anticipated to offer a harmonious blend of opportunities for both bowlers and batters. Initially, the bowlers might extract some movement from the surface, making it a challenging prospect for the batters. However, as the game unfolds, the pitch tends to become more batter-friendly, offering them better conditions to play their shots. Spin bowlers, too, will play a pivotal role in this scenario, as the pitch may afford them the advantage of the ball gripping the surface, making it trickier for batters to negotiate.
