The win at The Oval was England’s second of the four-game series, having also won the second game at Edgbaston by 23 wins.

The first and the third matches were abandoned due to rain. 

Buttler said there is "a little bit of green grass, a little bit of weather around" and his side are looking to chase.Babar Azam said he would have bowled, too.

Mark Wood replaced Recce Topley in England’s playing XI. 

Although openers skipper Babar Azam and Rizwan gave a good start, the middle order collapsed and the innings ended at 19.5 overs.

Pakistan replaced opener Saim Ayub with Usman Khan while Imad Wasim was rested due to medical reasons paving the way for Naseem Shah’s return.

Imad has been advised to take rest and will not participate in the fourth T20I against England.

While batting in the nets during Wednesday's training session, he experienced discomfort in his right rib cage. He was sent for a preventative scan as advised by the PCB medical panel.
