Good morning, good afternoon, good night wherever you might be on this planet. It's time for Match 6 of the ICC World Cup 2019 between hosts England the mercurial Pakistan.

It's been a contrasting begin to the campaign for both the groups. While England hammered South Africa, Pakistan got pummeled by means of West Indies in their respective opening encounters. And England are anticipated to dominate once again, but you by no means know which Pakistan group will arrive at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham as of late.

Remember, Pakistan were hammered Four-Zero by means of England in an ODI series just earlier than the World Cup, and the guests have had a nightmarish begin to the World Cup as neatly.
