dominating Pakistan within the five-match ODI
series, European nation didn’t
quite build a
handsome begin to the World Cup warm-ups. Eoin
Morgan lost the sport because of injury and Jos Buttler was responsible of the team, that lost to Australia by twelve runs. Their bowlers
restricted the Aussies to 297 in fifty overs, however the Poms couldn’t recover from the road despite half-centuries
from James Vince and Buttler himself.
Their next game is against Afghanistan tomorrow at the Kennington Oval in London. Afghanistan edged past Pakistan in metropolis, winning the match by 3 wickets.
The temperature will be around 17 degrees Celsius and humidity will be in the 50s. The sun won’t show up. The cloud cover of over 90 per cent is expected for the entire duration of the match.
The track has generally been good for batting, but last time, it assisted the fast bowlers to a great extent. The new ball moved around and troubled the Indian batsmen. Run-making became simpler, especially in the second innings. So, the captain who wins the toss should field first.
