Pakistan Tour of England 2019 – 3rd ODI Fantasy Preview

When you talk to the bookmakers or even general cricket fans, they will tell you about how England is the favourite to win the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup which takes place in England and Wales. However, if you watch the 2nd ODI between them and Pakistan, you will have to rank Pakistan right among the top teams as well.

The visitors almost completed a record run chase, eventually falling just 12 runs short of England’s 373/3. The 1st ODI prior to that was washed out due to rain and now, we’re set for the 3rd ODI at Bristol. There’s no chance of Pakistan winning the series if they lost this one now.

  • Pakistan have won only 2 of their 11 ODIs in 2019 so far.
  • England have won only 5 of their 11 ODIs at this ground.
  • Pakistan won their only previous ODI here in 1999.
  • Liam Plunkett has 8 wickets in 3 ODIs here.
  • Joe Root has 144 runs in 3 ODIs here.


The team that England played in the 2nd ODI is the closest to their playing 11 for the World Cup, suggesting they won’t be experimenting with of Jofra Archer and James Vince after all. Even though Eoin Morgan mentioned it’s going to be tough to select the best 15, not giving them a chance to play isn’t helping the cause. Adil Rashid and Jofra Archer haven’t travelled to Bristol so you can omit them from your fantasy team.

Jason Roy made a good return after injury with 87, while Jonny Bairstow also did well with 51. Roy has never been known to be consistent so pick Bairstow and also pick Joe Root, who has a good record at this ground and 40 in the last game shows he’s in good touch. James Vince comes back in with 79 in the One Day Cup semi final while Joe Denly will be given another chance. Pick them both in your DuggOut (sign-up to get Rs.50 FREE) fantasy team.


Yasir Shah did poorly with 1/60 in 7 overs in the 2nd ODI so he will most probably be left out to give Junaid Khan another go, and the latter is certainly in my team. As for Mohammad Amir, he missed out due to illness in the last game which means he will be out for the 3rd ODI too. Mohammad Hasnain could be given a chance in place of Shaheen Afridi.

Pakistan don’t have a lot of batting replacements they want to give a go, so I don’t expect many changes here. 76, 101, 53, 3, 7 138 – Fakhar Zaman’s scores on this 2019 Pakistan tour of England so far. Another success has been Babar Azam who has also brilliant scores of 9, 68*, 101, 65, 16, 51 on this tour. Pick them both and also pick Asif Ali who has game-changing abilities like we saw in his 51(36) in the last game.
