These days, everyone’s talking about the ICC 2019 World Cup taking place in England and Wales and today, we are going to talk about Game 6 – England vs Pakistan. For those who follow the international cricket scene, you would know that England won that ODI series 4-0 and that Pakistan are going through a very difficult phase at this point of time, having reached 11 straight ODI losses!
To make matters worse, Pakistan even lost their warm-up game to Afghanistan. That series against England was an indicator of what you can expect here today, but remember that Pakistan crossed 300 in each of those 4 completed games, so they weren’t completely pathetic. Keep reading for our complete PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy preview of the ENG vs PAK match…

- Babar Azam has 654 runs in 11 games since landing in England.
- Pakistan have won only 2 of their 15 ODIs in 2019.

We all know it’s a pure batting pitch so ensure you pack you team with at least 3 of the top 4 England batsmen. For me, Jason Roy is a must-have and in fact, you can even select him as your fantasy team captain. He was the highest scorer in that Pakistan series, with 277 runs in just 3 games. He has been in blazing hot form with five 50+ scores in his last 7 international innings including a century and a lowest score of 32. Joe Root has been good too with his last 6 scores being 40, 43, 36, 84, 29*, 51.
Ben Stokes has had a poor run of form in recent months, having a poor IPL 2019 followed by not too many runs or wickets in the warm-ups. However, he scored a fantastic 89 and picked up 2/12 against South Africa. He has arrived at the right time and picking him as captain or vice-captain is an option. With the ball, pick Chris Woakes, who had 10 wickets in 4 ODIs against Pakistan, while Jofra Archer is going to be the secret weapon, especially after his 3-for on his World Cup debut.
Pakistan put up 340 in an ODI here against England but barely managed a 3-digit score here in their first game against Windies. Once again, the first two on your fantasy team sheet must be the in-form players Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam. Azam had a rare failure in the last game but he will bounce back while Zaman himself has 479 runs in 11 games since arriving in England. Pick these two, while Haris Sohail could also be a good option, as he is often thrown the ball as well.
Mohammad Amir has had a poor return to international cricket in the last couple of years but his brilliant spell of bowling got him 3 wickets against Windies which means Shaheen Afridi may continue to sit out on the bench. Shoaib Malik is also expected to remain out of the team. While England pitches supports pace, picking Shadab Khan in your your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team could be a game-changing decision.
