Pakistan is playing its next match with hosts England on 3rd June 2019 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
England 12/1 in 3 overs
Pakistan 348/8 in 50 overs
The epic clash will start at 2:30 PM PST, 9:30 AM GMT. The game will be the sixth match in the Round Robin fixture of the World Cup. Pakistan will be trying to redeem its pride after its humiliating drubbing from West Indies when it was bundled out for a paltry 105 runs. The West Indies team achieved the total losing three wickets.
The strip where the clash between Pakistan and hosts England is a flat wicket and also the venue where two records breaking scores were put up by England, 481 for six against Australia in 2018 and 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016. It is one of the flattest, and the best batting pitches in the world and one can expect to see big scores and a nail-biting finish.
Fast bowlers crucial
We had seen in the match between Pakistan and West Indies where the Caribbean had used pace and a barrage of short pitch deliveries to decimate the Pakistanis. We can see a repeat of the same strategy by England. The England selectors could include Mark Wood who was at his fiery best and was as quick as Archer while bowling in the nets.
Toss will again be crucial.
West Indies won the toss and had used the early morning conditions to its maximum advantage. The Pakistani batsmen were left gaping after a barrage of short-pitched balls was fired by the Calypso brigade. When the Pakistani bowlers finally started the defense of their paltry total, the match had already slipped out of their grip. If Pakistani skipper again loses the toss on Monday, we could see a repeat of the game played on Friday.
