Pakistan vs England are a mega clash which is expected to be the most happening cricket match in UK this season. Both the teams are leading the cricket world cup very comfortably. This is a great opportunity for the two teams to make their rivalry further justified. Both the teams are confident of winning this game as they have a lot of cricketing talent in their side. Here’s a brief run down on each team and how they are preparing for the big tournament.
Pakistan vs England, 1st ODI. This is the opening game of this year’s competition. Both teams have a lot of talent in their side and this could be a really good game to watch. You can expect some heavy hitting from both the batsmen and the bowlers in this one.
Pakistan vs England, 2nd ODI. The second game of the series was played at Old Trafford in Manchester. It was another non-stop day of cricket when Pakistan took an 8-wicket victory against England. Both the batsmen took seven wickets and scored eight runs. This win gives Pakistan exactly what they need in the ongoing cricket season – a humbling experience.
Pakistan vs England, 3rd ODI. This was another day of intense and competitive cricket. Pakistan were all tops on the day and managed to win by an impressive score of 9-3. They controlled most of the first over with great bowling, catching and fielding skills. They were not really at their best but held their own until the end of the day.
Pakistan vs England, 4th ODI. This was another day of tension and chaos in the outfield. England were not able to put any runs on the board and only managed to take three wickets in the entire match, all from batsmen.
Pakistan vs England, 5th ODI. This was a must win game for Pakistan as they were always the underdogs in this match. However, with the bounce that England have been getting lately this shouldn’t be too hard a task. It will be interesting to see how much progress they can make in this World Cup.
Pakistan vs England, 6th ODI. Another day of cricket world cup tension. This time it was all down to the third Test between these two teams in Dubai. There were plenty of reasons for Pakistan to win this match and secure a place in the cricket world cup.
First of all, this is the first day of the cricket season in Dubai. All the other matches are already underway and many fans are already starting to look for the Dubai World Cup. Also, this is the last day of the tournament for this year. Therefore, it is a very good opportunity for fans to get a ticket and go to Dubai to cheer for their favorite team. Although Pakistan has a huge fan base in the UK, Dubai is still a wonderful cricketing destination.
With that said, cricket world cup venues in Dubai are certainly going to give this match a great boost. The venue, which is the only Twenty20 International stadium, holds a wonderful reputation. Actually, it is even the only one of its kind in the entire world. As such, it provides a good atmosphere for both the teams to bat. Cricket fans from all over the world will be in attendance and this will be great Adrenalin for them.
First of all, both the teams are evenly matched when it comes to both styles of playing and preparation. Pakistan obviously has the benefit of having domestic players in their side. On the other hand, England can make use of all those young players who have never tasted professional football. That, for sure, will provide the spark that is badly needed in this day and age of professional sport. In fact, the underdogs will feel the pressure to win this match as well.
The balance of power will definitely favor Pakistan. However, if the English side manages to create an early breakthrough, things could get interesting. For instance, if captain Michael Yarde of England has a good day, then the match is all but won. Yarde is not a regular in the England team and will need all the support he can get. This is one instance where fans in Pakistan should get excited about the outcome.
In addition to that, there are many other factors that come into play when discussing these crucial matches. Fans in Pakistan will be excited about the chance to see their idol in action and will cheer and groan throughout the entire game. Only luck is a factor in such a scenario. A day when their hero does not appear is surely a disappointment.
