Where: Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester What to expect: Another run fest most likely. Old Trafford remains one of the fastest and truest pitches in the country which should make for perfect batting conditions. As both teams have showed in this series, they are primed to take advantage. England is in the midst of a heatwave – basically more than two days above 25 degrees – and that is set to continue with bright sunshine and late 20 degree temperatures forecast. Team News England: Eoin Morgan is set to come back into the team after resting himself for the second game. Given he has spoken about affording opportunities to Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone in the middle order during this series, it is possible that Dawid Malan or Jonny Bairstow will be given a rest. In the bowling attack, David Willey is likely to return to the side, perhaps for Tom Curran who has played both games so far, while England may keep their two leg-spinner tactic from game two on a pitch that usually offers turn and bounce for the spinners. Possible XI: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler,Dawid Malan/Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Eoin Morgan, David Willey, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Saqib Mahmood, Matt Parkinson. Pakistan: As expected, Pakistan named an unchanged team for the second game in Leeds and they could do so again as they look to seal a victory in the series finale. If they do consider a change, it could be to bring in Usman Qadir, the leg-spinner who averages just 15.22 in T20I cricket, perhaps in place of Haris Rauf who has been expensive in both matches so far. Possible XI: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Shoaib Maqsood, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Azam Khan, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain, Haris Rauf/Usman Qadir. Squads: Pakistan Squad: Mohammad Rizwan(w), Babar Azam(c), Sohaib Maqsood, Mohammad Hafeez, Fakhar Zaman, Azam Khan, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Arshad Iqbal, Hasan Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Sharjeel Khan, Usman Qadir, Mohammad Nawaz, Sarfaraz Ahmed England Squad: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w), Dawid Malan, Eoin Morgan(c), Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Saqib Mahmood, Matthew Parkinson, David Willey, Lewis Gregory, Jake Ball, Tom Banton
