England made a good start to their World Cup 2019 campaign with a comfortable 104-run win over South Africa in the tournament opener. A collective team effort with the bat helped the hosts to post yet another 300+ and later bundled out the Saffers to just 207. They will be up against Pakistan whom they defeated 4-0 earlier this month. Pakistan were demolished by the Windies in their first game as they were bundled out for just 105 and the Caribbean team chased down the target with 218 balls to spare.

All the key stats and numbers ahead of the clash between England and Pakistan in Nottingham:

1 – England has lost only one ODI at home since the completion of the Champions Trophy 2017. They have played 18 ODIs in England in this span out of which two were washed out. They lost to India by 8 wickets in the game at Trent Bridge last year.

10Eoin Morgan has ten scores of fifty and more in his previous 15 ODI innings. He scored 813 runs with nine fifties with a century in his last 15 innings at an average of 90.33. Only twice he got out without scoring a fifty in these 15 innings.

10.61Wahab Riaz’s economy rate across his last three ODI matches in England. The left-arm pacer conceded 237 runs in 22.4 overs he bowled in his previous three ODIs on England soil without picking up a wicket.

11 – Pakistan have lost each of their last 11 completed ODI matches; their longest such streak in this format. Pakistan lost ten successive ODI games between 1987 and 1988.

155.18Jos Buttler’s batting strike rate in ODI cricket against Pakistan. Buttler scored 419 runs across 11 innings at an average of 59.85 with help of two tons and a fifty. His two centuries against Pakistan are the fastest ODI tons ever scored by an England player.

462.5 – Average first innings winning total in the ODI format since 2014 at the Trent Bridge. In seven completed ODI matches since 2014, only twice a team batting first won an ODI at this venue. England posted 481 and 444 against Australia and Pakistan to win those; the top two highest totals in ODI history.

2003 – Only once in the last five CWC editions where England and Pakistan faced off. England won the game played in 2003 by 112 runs which was hosted by Cape Town.

2992 – Jason Roy needs eight more runs to complete 3000 runs in ODI cricket. If Roy scores those eight runs in his next ODI outing, he will become the joint 2nd fastest England player and the joint 10th quickest to this milestone.

12000 – Mohammad Hafeez has scored 11937 runs in his International career till date. The all-rounder needs 63 more runs to become the 7th player to aggregate 12000 International runs for Pakistan.

12929 – Joe Root needs 71 more runs to complete 13000 runs in International cricket. Root will become the 6th player to aggregate 13000 runs in International cricket for England when he scores those 71 runs.
