England vs Pakistan Tips


England finally ended a five-game losing run as they hammered the Netherlands in a 160-run win.

Pakistan have to win this match as they look to leapfrog New Zealand in their battle for a top-four spot.

England Form 


With their World Cup defence already over, England are looking to finish their campaign with a second win on the bounce and third in total at the competition. 

While England have been far from their best, they will want to finish in the top-seven to secure a Champions Cup berth as they look to end a disappointing campaign with another win. Ben Stokes was the man of the moment against the Netherlands as his century proved decisive. 

If England play to their potential then they can win this match, but they have struggled to score runs consistently, which is a worry against a Pakistan bowling attack that can be incredibly dangerous on their day. 

Pakistan Last 3 Results


  • South Africa (271/9) beat Pakistan (270)
  • Pakistan (205/3) beat Bangladesh (204)
  • Pakistan (200/1) beat New Zealand (401/6) 

Pakistan Form 


Pakistan have to win this one if they are to make it into the World Cup semi-finals ahead of the likes of New Zealand and Afghanistan. 

Their last outing ended in a win via DLS over New Zealand as they closed on 200/1 chasing 401/6 before the weather ended the game. This win means that Pakistan have now won their last two in a row, with their batting lineup looking good having scored a combined 406/4 across their last two innings. 

If Pakistan get into the England middle-order early-on then they will fancy their chances of keeping England to less than 250 runs. However, if one of England's batsmen can get in, then they could prove the foil for their explosive batsmen to go big. 

Verdict

I am backing England to come out on top in this one as Adil Rashid takes the most wickets for England.
