England vs Pakistan 1st T20 Match Prediction

Both teams have batting lineups that are prone to collapses but Pakistan has a very good bowling attack led by Mohammad Amir. England?s recent T20 form is much better than Pakistan?s. Pakistan have a strong squad and this may be closer than the odds suggest, but England are favourites for a reason.
