Pak to play England in WC today

After stunned by West Indies in their opening game, Pakistan will be keen to win and set right their batting, and aim for a comeback when they take on hosts England in their second World Cup fixture at Trent Bridge, Nottingham today.

Playing against Windies, Pakistan we're clueless against Andre Russell and Oshane Thomas both having them hopping around. They managed to score only 103 runs and seemed to be in all sorts of trouble. None of their batsmen showed temperament and the ability to handle the short-pitch deliveries, and even rash shots by some of their batsmen didn`t help Pakistan`s cause. England started their campaign with a win against South Africa.There is good chance that a number of short balls at very decent pace will be heading Pak way as England have the likes of Mark Wood, Jofra Archer and Liam Plunkett in their pace battery.

The only silver lining for Pakistan was in the form of Mohammad Amir, who bowled superbly against the likes of Chris Gayle and Shai Hope and picked up all the three wickets.
