ENG vs PAK Dream11 Prediction
Lord’s, May 24 at 03:30 PM IST/11:00 AM Local
The stage is set for the first Test of the English summer at Lord’s. The hosts are far from settled, with a troubled opening combination, inconsistent middle-order and lack support for Anderson and Broad in the bowling department.
The touring Pakistan side, accustomed to the conditions by now, have played Kent, Northants and Leicestershire and a one-off Test against Ireland leading up to this test. However, it will be a test for their inexperienced batting line-up against experienced swing bowling.
