Saqib Mahmood was top class with the new ball in the last match.
Updated - Jul 10, 2021 12:01 pm
With clinical bowling performances and an even better batting display, the new-look England side trashed the men in green by 9 wickets to go 1-0 up in the 3-match ODI series. Saqib Mahmood bowled brilliantly upfront with the new ball and took 2 wickets in the first over, which set the tone for the hosts.
Meanwhile, Pakistan lost early wickets and couldn’t recover from that. They were bundled out of just 141 runs inside 36 overs. Fakhar Zaman and Shadab Khan showed some grit, but that wasn’t enough to up a match-winning target. They must win this match to stay alive in the series.
England vs Pakistan, 2nd ODI
Venue: Lord’s, London
Date & Time: July 10th, at 3:30 PM IST and 11:00 AM Local Time
Live Streaming: Sony Sports Network
The surface here at Lord’s will help the seamers in the initial first hour of play, but later on, it will become completely flat and batters can score runs freely. It’s a 280-290 kind of wicket and bowling first is a preferable choice.

Top Picks for ENG vs PAK Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batsmen
Fakhar Zaman was very composed at the crease in the 1st ODI. He defended the good balls and dispatched the odd bad deliveries. He was the top scorer for Pakistan with 47 runs from 67 deliveries.
Playing in his 1st ODI, Zak Crawley bought up his maiden half-century and remained unbeaten on 58 runs. He played the ball late and rotated the strike really well, which helped his side to chase the target quite easily.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Lewis Gregory took his maiden ODI wicket with a peach of a delivery by dismissing Mohammad Rizwan for 13 runs. The Somerset all-rounder is even handy with the bat as well.
Shadab Khan battled really hard in the 1st ODI for his 30 runs and was dismissed for a well-directed short delivery from Craig Overton.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Saqib Mahmood was top class with the new ball. With his express pace and impeccable lengths, he was unplayable in the first hour of play. He was the player of the match in the 1st ODI for outstanding figures of 4 for 42.
Shaheen Afridi was the lone wicket-taker for Pakistan in the 1st ODI. He has the ability to swing the ball both ways and uses his height to the maximum extent.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Mohammad Rizwan got the perfect start but was dismissed by an excellent delivery from Lewis Gregory when he was 13. He can be backed to do well in the 2nd ODI.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for ENG vs PAK Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Mohammad Rizwan (vc), James Vince, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Dawid Malan (c), Ben Stokes, Lewis Gregory, Faheem Ashraf, Saqib Mahmood, Brydon Carse, Haris Rauf
ENG vs PAK Risky Captaincy Choices:
James Vince hasn’t batted in the ODIs since July 2019, but he has been in phenomenal form in the T20 Blast. You can take a risk and pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
Imam-ul-Haq got out on the first ball of the match in the 1st ODI. He is a talented player and has got huge potential. It will be a bit risky to pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
Player you should avoid:
John Simpson kept well in the first ODI, but since Mohammad Rizwan and Philip Salt are the frontline wicketkeeping options, you can avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
