England vs Pakistan, 1st ODI: Match Prediction – Weather Report, Pitch Conditions
Britain and Pakistan are good to go to participate in a five-coordinate ODI arrangement, beginning at the Kennington Oval in London. These recreations will be very vital for both the groups as the World Cup gets in progress in half a month time. Already, the sides secured horns an irregular T20I at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff and the Three Lions effectively turned out trumps with seven wickets.
The Brits, captained by Eoin Morgan, are positioned number one in the ODI configuration and Pakistan will enter the arrangement as longshots. The Men dressed in Green haven’t won numerous 50-overs diversions in the last one and half years. Besides, in the wake of losing the ODI arrangement against Australia 0-5 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sarfaraz Ahmed and Co would need to get in a positive temper.
The pitch has produced some 300 plus scores in the past couple of years with exceptions now and then. Thus for this contest, a batting friendly strip can be expected. Pakistan and England have some explosive players in their ranks and a high-scoring affair seems to be on the cards.
The weather forecast for the game isn’t something to cheer about for the players. There are chances of heavy downpour throughout the day. The atmosphere will be gloomy with the temperature between 11 degrees Celsius and 14 degrees Celsius. The sun isn’t likely to make its way out.
Jofra Archer, after his impressive show in the T20I, may make his ODI debut. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow need to give England a good start. Joe Root and captain Morgan strengthen the middle order. Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler have the potential of going berserk in the hour of need. Moeen Ali won’t be playing the game due to a rib injury and Adil Rashid is the lone spinner in the lineup.
The left-handed duo of Imam and Fakhar are the openers. The middle-order has the calm and composed Babar Azam and Haris Sohail. Asif Ali and Sarfaraz’s role will also be of prime importance. Imad Wasim and Faheem Ashraf are no mugs with the bat. The team will expect Faheem and Imam to deliver with the ball. The focus, however, will also be on Mohammad Amir, who isn’t a part of the provisional World Cup squad.
