Today’s first T20 between the two prolific contenders of World Cup 2019 will take on each other in Cardiff. The team England have ample chance to win this game against Pakistan, because Pakistan is somewhat vulnerable as regards its spin balling attack due to the absence of Shadab Khan – the trump card of Pakistani Team.To face spin bowling like the Shadab Khan – Imad Waseem duo could have been pose a threat to the English batsmen. English batting, especially in T20 games becomes swift and fast paced as compared to one day internationals.
Pakistan which lacks in batting especially against the English attack will try to dismantle the impact, by winning the toss first and will try to elect into the field. To chase a total of 180 -190 runs may be a difficult task for Pakistan team. If Pakistan is invited for batting first, they should have to go for a tally of around 200+ runs to win this sole T20 fixture. The body language of both teams will play a pivotal role in deciding today’s game. As everybody knows, England have a edge of home ground and home crowd over Pakistan. We can expect a good support from local Pakistani crowd in today’s game. Their expectations are very high of Pakistani team. The winning start in this game will give Pakistan team a morale booster and more confidence to enter into the struggle of contesting victory in the upcoming World Cup 2019.
