Having got back on track in their second Group B match against Thailand, Heather Knight’s side now face something of a crunch match – don’t miss a ball with our England vs Pakistan live stream guide.
Both England and Pakistan currently sit on two points in the group alongside the West Indies and South Africa, meaning the stakes are high for this match in Canberra as the Women’s T20 World Cup looks ahead to March and the semi-finals.
England come into the match as clear favourites, but a comfortable win in their opening T20 World Cup match over the Windies clearly illustrated that Pakistan should not be underestimated.
England vs Pakistan Women’s T20 – when and where?
England vs Pakistan will be played at the Manuka Oval, in Canberra on Friday, February 28 .
This late match begins at 7pm AEDT local time and so that means an 8am GMT start for England fans tuning in from home.
After kicking off their T20 World Cup campaign in disappointing style with a defeat to South Africa, England should have restored some confidence with their impressive 98-run victory in their second match against Thailand. Skipper Heather Knight led by example, notching up 108 not out from just 66 balls after the early loss of openers Amy Jones and Danielle Wyatt.
Pakistan’s big threat looks like to come from their bowling attack, with opening duo Diana Baig and Anam Amin looking superb against the Windies limiting their opponents to 19 each from their four overs
