The time is running out for both, England and Pakistan, and are left with only two ODIs before they finalise their World Cup squads. The two teams will fight it out in the fourth of the five-match ODI series on Friday which will be played at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. England are leading the series by 2-0 and will be looking to seal the fate by winning this match.
England have happy memories playing at the Trent Bridge. They smashed a record 481 runs against Australia last year and would love to replicate a similar feat on Friday as well. It will be definitely a high-scoring encounter and the bowlers should somehow come up with the plans of restricting the opposition batting.
Rain is likely to play spoilsport in Nottingham as the clouds are expected to hover over the Trent Bridge. It might rain the whole day with the percentage chances of shower are close to 40-50 according to Accuweather and there is no respite at any stage in the day.
