First ODI was interrupted due to continuous rain, both teams couldn’t get much of for preparation going to the World Cup.
England could be disappointed that much couldn’t be compeleted as they were hot favourite as Pakistan only could manage to post 80/2 after the completion of 19 overs in 41 overs-match which may have suggested that at half overs the runs were very few.
England yet could be happy as they could see Archer was getting into his rhythm, man is in all’s eyes as he is going to make his place for World Cup, everyone is expecting him in squad.
On the other hand Pakistan is also disappointed that Muhammad Amir and Asif Ali couldn’t grab a chance to prove their worth in the match, someone could feel if Asif Ali will be dropped without getting chance as Shoaib Malik has returned to side after 10-days break.
Match is expected to be interrupted again as the weather will be cloudy in first innings and is expected that match will may be shorten too, the pitch will be high scoring yet again as the this year’s domestic average at the ground is 320+ which is too high.
It is highly expected that Pakistan will be playing with same lineup as Pakistan couldn’t check their players performances in first ODI, if there will be any change it would be only Shoaib Malik will be replacing Asif Ali.
England will be playing same lineup yet again, there is no any news about Moin Ali’s injury so there will be no changes.
If Pakistan wins the toss, they will choose to bowl first and will restrict England under 300 and if they could restrict they may go to win the match too.
England wins the toss, they will choose to bowl first and will restrict Pakistan under 280 and will win the match by 6 wickets.
Chasing team will have the advantage to win the match.
