England vs Pakistan Match Prediction

Three days ago we would have predicted a comfortable England win here. Despite their averages, the record of Pakistan against the higher-ranked nations is poor. They are the experts at picking of lesser opposition but at times fall apart when they are up against a stubborn test like they would have been in this match.

In the last 2 days, everything has changed though with the wholesale changes to the English team. Ben Stokes will pose a threat as always, he’s a world-class cricketer been though he’s been out for a few months. The changes to the team will be hard to implement a style and they will rely on the experience of some of the players and hope for the best.

Match prediction – Pakistan to win

There are so many unknowns in this match that it is almost impossible to call. Pushed for a winner the Cricketics team almost unanimously went for a Pakistan win. We will be watching this closely though to see how the players perform and how the game pans out for the remaining matches in the ODI series. With a comprehensive win, Pakistan could lay down a marker for the rest of the series.
