After being handed a 5-0 whitewash by Australia in the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan has now lost a couple of ODIs against England. Currently trailing the series 2-0, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Co are standing on the verge of another series loss. The next game will be a do or die affair for Pakistan and it is scheduled to be played at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham where they won seven out of their 12 matches.

Their batting has been able to switch on the demolition mode, but it’s the bowling unit that has let the team down to a large extent. England, on the other hand, has batted brilliantly and faltered in the bowling department, though it hasn’t cost them thus far. The Three Lions will be hoping to get another victory under their belt before they head to the Headingley in Leeds for the fifth and final One Dayer.
