In a rematch of the last ICC global tournament (Champions Trophy) semifinal in England, Pakistan takes on England in world cup 2019. That Pakistan team was a team on a mission and full of confident in form players however this Pakistan team lacks the same confidence and form players. But even then England are not taking them lightly considering they were eliminated from a tournament which they were highly poised to win.
England has another opportunity to get an ICC ODI trophy at their own turf and this time they have prepared better. They now have the bowling to match their batting, mainly due to inclusion of Archer and fully fit Wood along with an in form Woakes. They would hope to win this one comfortably.
Pakistan on the other hand would be hoping to repeat the feat of 2017 champions trophy when they beat England to reach finals of that tournament which they went on to win. They remain a team that can surprise anyone if they play to their potential. Their batsmen will be hoping to have a better show with bat this time in their second world cup match.
The pitch should favor the batsmen so especially Pakistan would look to strengthen their batting to ensure they can post a good total which their bowlers can defend. England on the other hand will be comfortable in chasing any total on this record breaking ground. We hope for a cracker of a match if Pakistan can bat well.
