Pakistan’s poor run just doesn’t seem to come to an end. After remaining winless in their bilateral ODI series against Australia and England, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Co slumped to a seven-wicket defeat against the Windies in the World Cup. At the Trent Bridge in Nottingham, the bounce generated by the bowlers turned out to be a massive headache for Pakistan and they got bowled out for a paltry 105 in 21.4 overs.
To make things worse, the Men in Green are now scheduled to run into Eoin Morgan’s men in their next game at the same venue. England is one of the tournament favourites and they showed exactly why, defeating South Africa at the Kennington Oval by a humongous margin of 104 runs. It goes without saying that Pakistan needs to pull a rabbit out of the hat in order to get past the ominous-looking Poms.
The Three Lions won’t be tinkering with their winning combination barring any unavoidable circumstance. Jonny Bairstow got a golden duck versus the Proteas and he’ll want to make amends. Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes looked in good touch last time around.
In fact, Stokes looked at his best with the leather as well as in the outfield where he took a thunderous catch to send back Andile Phehlukwayo. Jofra Archer’s inclusion hasn’t backfired as well. Jos Buttler floundered the other day, but the world’s aware of the damage he can do on his day.

Asif Ali didn’t play the last game and he may get a chance in place of Haris Sohail, who fell to Andre Russell’s ferocity last time at the same venue. Asif was in decent form in the England ODI series and is someone, who can inject momentum into the innings with his wide range of strokes.
Asif’s inclusion will also mean that Sarfaraz may promote himself to number four. Mohammad Amir picked up three wickets and his return to form would be a massive morale-booster for the Men in Green. The onus will be on the top three — Babar, Imam and Fakhar — to build the platform.

When: June 3, 2019, 09:30 AM GMT / 10:30 AM LOCAL
Where: Trent Bridge, Nottingham
What to expect: The match will be played on the same pitch England scored 481 for six against Australia last year and, against Pakistan in 2016, amassed 444 for three. Trent Bridge is the haunted house for bowlers and, just as in all horror films, they can’t help but go back.
But you never know, there may be an exorcism of sorts on the cards. Because on both those occasions, the start time was 2 PM, the sun shining, surface the shade of milky tea (English milky tea – so reaaaaally milky) and the flayed were two attacks who, with all due respect, were not up to the task. Remember, it was an Australian attack without Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood.
Another element to consider is that pitch preparation is now under the jurisdiction of the ICC. Whatever slant the ECB put on previous Trent Bridge decks to favour run-scoring are unlike to be in play here. Take, for example, the greener surface used for New Zealand versus Sri Lanka on Saturday. And while they use a pitch as close to the middle of the square as possible for broadcast purposes there is only so much they can do about the dimensions of the ground. It’ll still be great value behind square on both sides and the outfield will remain electric.
Nevertheless, that 10:30am and the early movement we’ve seen so far because of it will not be a good one to lose.
