England are fancied to beat Pakistan at the MCG on Sunday and become the first team to hold both white-ball World Cup trophies at the same time.

The Three Lions prevailed over 50 overs in 2019 and are worthy favourites in the shorter format after demolishing India in the semis Down Under.

We’re happy to take 4/7 for England to do the business again in our T20 World Cup final predictions.

England odds

England finished off the group stage strongly with convincing victories over New Zealand and Sri Lanka and simply brushed aside India.

Hardik Pandya’s buccaneering 63 off 33 balls helped India add 88 in the last seven overs to post a solid-looking 168 for six in Adelaide.

However, his efforts were put in the shade by the brilliance of Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, who shared 13 fours and 10 sixes to secure a 10-wicket win with four overs to spare.

“I’m immensely proud of the guys, that was a brilliant performance, by far our best performance of the tournament,” said Buttler.

“We’re a good team, I think that’s probably where the performance comes from. We’ve got some brilliant players in our team and when they play their best, they’re a tough team to beat.

“We’re an incredibly dangerous side, there’s huge confidence in the group, we haven’t at points played as well as we could have done in the tournament yet still found ourselves in the semi-final of a World Cup.

“To then play like we did in such a high-pressure game is immensely satisfying.”

Hales just took top honours with 86 off 47 balls, as he capitalised on the shorter square boundaries at the Adelaide Oval.

However, Buttler was bearing down on that tally at the finish, sealing victory in emphatic fashion with a six to reach 80 from two more deliveries.

Looking at the 11/4.

Pakistan odds

Pakistan lost out to India and South Africa during the pool stage but took advantage of the Proteas’ shock late defeat by Netherlands to scrape through.

The Shaheens made the most of their reprieve when seeing off New Zealand by seven wickets in the first semi in Sydney.

After being set a target of 153 for victory, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan laid the platform for success with a 105-run opening stand.

Shaheen Afridi had earlier shone with the ball, removing Finn Allen with the third delivery of the game and posting figures of two for 24.

“Everyone knows he’s the best bowler in Pakistan and in the world,” declared Babar.

The Kiwis weren’t quite on top of their game, though, and we feel Pakistan still have it all to prove in the final, especially as their top two batsmen had previously struggled.

Sam Curran could be the England bowler to watch out for, as he is capable of cleaning up late on when the push for runs increases.

Let’s add 3/1 for the Surrey ace to take the most wickets for the Three Lions to our T20 World Cup final betting tips.
