Unlike previous world cups, this WC is being played in the round-robin format and will watch match no.43 played between the Champion trophy holders taking on the Asian Tigers Bangladesh at Lords.
Pitch Report & Toss Prediction For PAK vs BANG:
Lords have hosted some memorable matches in the past ICC tournaments. Teams have seen a good total scored on this pitch in both innings. Pakistan strength has been in their bowling department. Pakistan will definitely choose to bat bowl first in this condition and restrict the Tigers on a low total.
Bangladesh will choose to do similar in this situation. Average runs scored on this pitch is 280runs. If Pakistan score above 280 it will be tough for them to chase it.
