The Pakistan cricket team touched down in Cardiff on Sunday in preparation for the third T20I against England.

England is ahead in the four-match series with a 1-0 lead after defeating Pakistan in the second T20I, while the first match in Leeds was washed out due to rain.

The third T20I will be played on Tuesday at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff.

However, the weather forecast suggests a high likelihood of rain, with overcast conditions throughout the day.

AccuWeather reports a 66 percent chance of rain in the afternoon and a 50 percent chance during the match, which is scheduled to commence at 6:30 pm local time.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced that the team will hold a practice session from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm on Monday.

The final match of the series is slated to be played at the Oval on May 30, Thursday.
