Red-hot England would be looking to register their second successive win of the World Cup when they take on Pakistan in the sixth match of this competition. Both the teams will be locking horns at Nottinghamshire’s Trent Bridge. England and Pakistan have made a contrasting start to their World Cup campaign and are currently looking poles apart as far as their form is concerned. No surprises then that England would start the game as firm favourites.

England thrashed South Africa by 104 runs in the World Cup-opener. Asked to bat first, England scored 311 for 8 in the allotted 50 overs after losing Jonny Bairstow for a duck in the very first over. As many as four batsmen – Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes – scored the fifties. The bowlers led by Jofra Archer did even better by bowling out the Proteas for just 207 to give their team a thumping start.

On the other hand, Pakistan was battered by West Indies. Performing miserably in front of the short balls, Pakistan were all out for a paltry 105 inside 22 overs. West Indies then chased down the total inside 14 overs to start their World Cup on a stunning note. Pakistan has a herculean task at their hands as it will take something special from them to beat England.

Both the teams, meanwhile, had played four ODIs last month and although England had won all the games, Pakistan had done very well with the bat. They scored above 340 three times out of four against that England attack, and most top-order batsmen got runs. Pakistan will be hoping that their batsmen bounce back and deliver again to give the team a good chance of winning the game.

How’s the weather expected to be

The big clash could be marred by weather conditions. According to AccuWeather, there are seven per cent chances of rainfall when the game gets underway at Trent Bridge. The cloud cover will be around 23% at the start but will increase by a considerable amount as the game wears on. The temperature will be around 17 degrees Celcius.
