The 6th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between England and Pakistan at Trent Bridge.
The match starts at 10:30 Local (09:30 GMT).
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.
