Cricket fans can watch the final match of the Pakistan vs. England series live online Monday, when the two nations play their third and last T20 match, after three Test matches starting way back on October 13, followed by four one-day international matches, and winding up with the three T20 games.
After Pakistan dominated the Test series, winning the second and third Tests by 178 and 127 runs after a draw in the opener, and England turned the tables in the ODI set with three straight wins after dropping the first match of that series.
England kept up their momentum in the limited overs formats winning the first two T20 matches as well, and will now go for a clean sweep in the format by beating Pakistan one more time when the two teams meet Monday in the United Arab Emirates.
The UAE has hosted almost all of the Pakistan home matches since a terrorist incident in 2009 led other top cricket nations to shun Pakistan due to security worries.
England’s T20 domination has served as a wake-up call to Pakistan and Captain Shahid “Boom Boom” Afridi, due to the relative inexperience of England in the shortest, most explosive format of cricket.
England has played only three T20 matches in the 14 months leading into the series against Pakistan — but Pakistan has played more T20 games than any other country in the history of international competition in the 20-overs per side format.

For United States viewers, the match begins at 11 a.m. Eastern Time, 8 a.m. Pacific.
The second T20 between England and Pakistan on Friday went down as an instant classic, coming down to the final ball after a stunning inning from the 35-year-old Afridi that put Pakistan within range of victory after all had seemed lost when they trailed by 46 runs with only 18 balls left to deliver.
But Afridi blasted three sixes in five balls to turn the momentum of the game on its head and leave England scrambling to hold to what just moments earlier had seemed a sure victory, finally hanging on to win by three runs.
The legendary Pakistan all-rounder also contributed with the ball, taking three wickets while allowing only 15 runs in four overs in a match where England finished with an average of 8.6 runs per over.
For England, 30-year-old Liam Plunkett took three wickets for 33 runs for an economy of 8.5, while spinner Adil Rahsid was able to baffle the Pakistan batsmen, taking two wickets for just 18 runs, bowling 12 dot balls and, alone among England bowlers, did not allow a single ball over the boundary in the air for a six.
