England have an advantage in head to head but Pakistan are not far behind in other columns.
T20 World Cup finalists England and Pakistan have peaked at the right time in the tournament.
Pakistan were all but eliminated from the World Cup following their loss to Zimbabwe, but lopsided victories in the remaining three group matches, along with help from the Netherlands, secured their place in the semi-finals, where they defeated New Zealand.
England’s route to the semi-finals was not nearly as dramatic. But there was a feeling that they hadn’t hit their stride in the tournament. All of those concerns were eased in the semi-final, where they decimated the much-loved Indians by 10 wickets.
Ahead of the final in Melbourne, here’s how the two teams’ numbers compare:
28: That’s the number of times these two sides have met in T20I.
18: England won 18 of these, while Pakistan won nine.
12: Between the 50+ and 20+ world cups, Pakistan and England have met 12 times, with the latter holding a 6-5 lead.

3: England have won three of the last five T20I games between the two teams.
