As the euphoria of World Cup rolls on, we are into the sixth match of the mega event and the two teams contesting here are Pakistan and the hosts England. This match will be played at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
These two teams recently battled it out against each other in a 5-match ODI series which saw the hosts England quite convincingly taking the series 4-0. Pakistan hasn’t started their World Cup campaign on a good note as they succumbed to a 7 wickets loss against Windies where they were completely undone by fiery bouncers from the Windies pacers.
Meanwhile, the hosts England have started their campaign on a winning note by defeating the Proteas in the opening match of the World Cup by 104 runs. They are one confident unit and will be looking to continue with their rich vein of form.
