Match Predictions for PAK vs ENG
England tasted victory in the first game. However, Pakistan will fight back. They won’t let England dominate on their home turf for too long. A good quality contest will play out for sure. England would want to keep their winning combinations intact. Pakistan, on the other hand, would also want to go with the same eleven. They will back the players for the second game. They desperately need to strengthen their batting before the World Cup. The team is heavily dependent on the openers. The middle order needs to fire as time is running out for them. Nevertheless, considering all aspects, England would be the probable winner of the match.
