Preview –

UAE grounds are like home ground to Pakistan team since they almost play all of their matches at home. Since they can’t host games at home because of political situation, they have adapted to play in UAE for quite a while now and its almost a 2nd home ground for them. The reason I say that is because, when playing in UAE Pakistan team definitely gets an advantage and that will work on their favor. They played well in the first test and could have aimed for the win but couldn’t get to that. They will be hoping to play at the same level in this match as well and if they can do that then they may be able get the upper hand in this match.

England on the other hand is hindered a bit in this pitch as we saw in the first test but they managed to come through with god play on the field. They even managed to get close to winning and its quite clear that they have adapted to UAE. They will play this match with the same vigor as the last match and if they create enough opportunities then they should be able to get something positive from this match.

Prediction –

We predict that this match will end as another draw.
