After failing drastically against West Indies in their opening fixture, Pakistan would hope for a better show from their batsmen as the team prepares itself to take on hosts England on Monday. The Asian side were bundled out on 105 in just 21.4 overs and the pressure will remain the same against a fiery English bowling line-up.
England, on the other hand, would like to carry forward their rock-solid form in ODI cricket. The team started their campaign on a high note and secured a convincing 104-run win against South Africa in the tournament opener. The entire English unit is in impeccable form and Ben Stokes, the all-rounder, shone with both – bat and the ball in their previous fixture. Jofra Archer, England’s latest inclusion in their ODI side is another bowler to watch out for. After having a great outing in India during the Indian Premier League, the Barbadian born English cricketer picked three wickets in the seven overs he bowled against the Proteas.
