ENG vs PAK Today Match Prediction Cricket 1st Test England vs Pakistan Who will win today 5 August

ENG vs PAK Today Match Prediction: After a thumping 2-1 series win over West Indies last month, England would be looking for a repeat performance when they meet Pakistan in the first of the three-match Test series at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Pakistan boasts a decent bowling attack and can pose a challenge before England if their batsmen click. With most of the batting unit having an England tour under their belt, it should be an enticing contest to watch.

Today’s Cricket Match Prediction

England have to decide between one of Chris Woakes and Sam Curran, and one of Jofra Archer and Mark Wood. Woakes and Archer are likely to get the nod.

To face new-ball with captain Azhar Ali, Pakistan is in a fix to choose their two openers as skipper is likely to bat at three. Moreover, Pakistan coach Misbah has hinted at playing two spinners. Does that leave them thin on batting?
