Pakistan VS England Forth and Final ODI Dubai.
After a poor performance from last 2 ODI’s against England. Pakistan made some changes in the team. Ahmad Shehzad replaced Iftikhar Ahmed to show some crisp in the batting order of Pakistan. Same as on the bowling side Yasir Shah came back to the ground after his knee injury during Sharjah ODI match. Yasir Shah replaced Zafar Gohar.
Pakistan made these two major changes in their team whereas England is unchanged. They are playing with the same squad of the team from Sharjah ODI.
Today’s Match is important for Pakistan because Pakistan has not won a single ODI Series from England from last 10 years. And if they lose this time, they will have lost three ODI series. Today Match is most important for Pakistan because Pakistan needs to win to level the series with 2-2 points and secondly needs to break that 10 years record. The third most important issue that could Pakistan face in they loss is that Pakistan is on 8th Rank in One-Day International Rankings, qualification for the Worldcup 2019 may become as issue.
Today Pakistan team needs to show some enthusiasm both on batting and bowling side in order to claim the victory. But of course, England will give them a tuff time as their moral is much higher than Pakistan because of the last 2 consecutive victories.
England Team squad is as follow.
1 Jason Roy, 2 Alex Hales, 3 Joe Root, 4 Eoin Morgan (capt), 5 James Taylor, 6 Jos Buttler (wk), 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Adil Rashid, 10 David Willey, 11 Reece Topley.
