Cricket Match Preview:

After a solitary T20 cricket game, England and Pakistan will take on each other in the first ODI cricket game of the five-match ODI series. England won the T20 cricket game by seven wickets. This series in England will be crucial for the preparation of both teams considering the fact that the World Cup is scheduled to begin on the last week of May.

Pakistan players are coming off from a well-deserved rest after the Pakistan Super League (PSL) tournament, which was played in UAE and Pakistan. Pakistan will have a near full strength squad for this cricket series after several of their cricketers were rested for the series against Australia. For this cricket series, all the English players who were part of the Indian Premier League (IPL), have come back to the English side as well.

The likes of Jos Butler, Jonny Bairstow, Jofra Archer and Moeen Ali were all part of different IPL sides and have now returned to the English side. While England in T20 cricket are a good side, it is in 50 over format that they truly come to the fore. They are hands down the best side in the world and have been so for almost the entire duration since the last World Cup up to the beginning of this year’s World Cup.

There has been a big controversy involving their top order batsman, Alex Hales, who has been dropped from the World Cup squad after being guilty of taking a banned substance. Several of England’s senior players and managing director were involved in this decision-making process. It will be interesting how England will cope with it even though they have ample batting firepower in their ranks.

Pakistan, on the other hand, will be led by their full-time skipper Sarfraz Ahmed for this series and the upcoming World Cup. Shoaib Malik led Pakistan in their series against Australia but it did not prove to be lucky for Pakistan as they were whitewashed by a young Australian side. Shoaib Malik will not be part of the initial part of this tournament due to personal reasons.

Cricket Match Information:

England will take on Pakistan in the first ODI cricket game of this England tour of Pakistan. World Cup is just around the corner and every cricket game from here on is going to be crucial for both teams. These will be the last few cricket games for England before the World Cup, whereas Pakistan will play two additional ODIs against Afghanistan and Bangladesh apart from this cricket series.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

England are going to be strong favourites for the World Cup. They would like to begin this series well and look to continue from there on for the next two to three months. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played in West Indies.

Here is our prediction of England’s playing XI:

  • Jos Butler
  • Johnny Bairstow
  • Joe Root
  • Eoin Morgan
  • Moeen Ali
  • Tom Curran
  • Liam Plunkett
  • Mark Wood
  • Adeel Rashid
  • Jofra Archer
  • David Willey


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Pakistan will be led by the experienced Sarfraz Ahmed. He will be leading Pakistan’s side in the World Cup as well. Our prediction is of quite a few changes to their playing eleven than those that played in the series against Australia.

Here is our prediction of Pakistan’s playing XI:

  • Imam-ul-Haq
  • Sarfraz Ahmed
  • Babar Azam
  • Harris Sohail
  • Faheem Ashraf
  • Imad Wasim
  • Hasan Ali
  • Mohammad Aamir
  • Yasir Shah
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi
  • Fakhar Zaman

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Babar Azam is going to be an important factor behind the success of Pakistan in this cricket series and in the World Cup. Our prediction is of a good knock from him in the first cricket game of the series.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket game played here was between Australia and England back in 2018. England won that cricket game after chasing down 214 runs set by India batting first. They won the game of cricket by three wickets. Our prediction is of a score of around 350 runs especially if England bat first. Conditions are expected to be cold and windy.

Our Prediction:

England will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They are the number one cricket side of the format and are expected to be very tough to beat. Our prediction is of England’s win in the first ODI cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Jonny Bairstow (ENG) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Adil Rasheed (ENG) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Moeen Ali (ENG)
