Southampton, May 11, Saturday at 03:30 PM IST
Soaring high on confidence, Pakistan will face the real challenge when they will square off against England in the second ODI at Southampton on Saturday. The first ODI between the two sides ended in no result after the match was called off in fifteen overs with the rain coming into the picture.
Ahead of the Cricket World Cup 2019, this tour of England is more like a practice session to get familiar with the conditions. The visitors are coming after securing three consecutive wins in the practice games played against Kent, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire and will be looking to carry forward the momentum.
The hosts on the opposite will be looking to fine-tune their combinations and get the momentum to start the bigger campaign. Jason Roy and M Ali are expected to return and England can be seen featuring with their full strength.
The clash will begin at 03:30 PM IST.
With rain and cloud forecasted in the weather, pacers can get a bit of help from the wicket. Originally, it is a good batting wicket and if the wicket remains dry spinners can get some purchase too.

Fantasy picks from England-
Jonny Bairstow, Joss Buttler and Jofra Archer are coming after successful IPL campaign
Going by the form, J Bairstow is a must-have option in batting. Also, when last time he played in Southampton, he scored 141 unbeaten off 114 balls
Jofra Archer bowled 2 maidens and bagged 1 wicket giving away just 6 runs in his four overs spell
Skipper E Morgan was in good form in the Royal London One Day Cup 2019. He scored a century with a couple of the fifties in the tournament
Fantasy picks from Pakistan-
The top order consisting of Fakhar Zaman, Imam Ul Haq and Babar Azam will be responsible for giving a solid start. Both Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam slammed a ton and a fifty in the three practice games played earlier while Imam ul Haq scored a couple of the fifties.
Imad Wasim, F Ashraf, and Hasan Ali will be responsible with the ball
I Wasim slammed a ton against Kent and can change the course of the game anytime
