The World cup is finally here. It’s the tournament that we get to see after every four years. This year’s world cup will be played in England & Wales in a Round-Robin tournament format. The Hosts England will take on the 2017 Champions Trophy winners Pakistan at the Trent Bridge on 3rd June. The England team is all set to bring the cup to their country as they are the host for this year’s world cup.
Pitch Report & Toss Prediction:
The Pitch at Trent Bridge has always been flat and there is not much swing with the white ball as opposed to the red ball. It is a batting paradise. The match will be a high scoring one and the team that wins the toss will look to bat first. The hitters will have an amazing time batting at this track as easy runs can be scored in the first innings because of the dryness in the pitch but as the second innings starts the pitch will get used to the ball and then the bowlers can take some crucial wickets. The toss will be a crucial one.
England Team News :
Both the teams will be quite familiar with each other as they played a 5- macth ODI series before the World Cup. We are not sure if we will get to see Jofra Archer in the playing XI in today’s match. Adil Rashid will be the key spinner to bowl in the middle overs alongside Ali who will be the key spinner to bowl to the left-handed batsman.
Predicted playing 11 for England:
Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid.
Pakistan Team News:
Sarfaraz will be leading the side with not much changes to the team. The champions of the ICC champions trophy will be a big threat to a team like England. Bowlers like Mohamad Amir will be the key bowler to get those early wickets and take out the quality batsmen of the Engalnd side. Adding on there will be experienced players like Shoaib Malik and Hafeez to strengthen the team with the middle order batting and their bowling skills.
Predicted Playing XI:
Zaman, Imam-UL-Haq, Babar Azam, Asif Ali, Mohamed Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohamed Amir.
The young Pakistani batsman has been brilliant with the bat and has got a very good average on the England surface. He scored a century in the ODI series against the English and could possibly do the same in this match. His batting in the middle order is compared as the spine of the Pakistani batting order.
