Share

England vs Pakistan Dream11: The first ODI match between England and Pakistan will take place on 8 July at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Both the teams will lock horns in a total of six white-ball matches in this ongoing month. After a smashing series win against Sri Lanka at home, England were forced to name a fresh squad as 7 members of their previous ODI contingent were tested positive for Covid-19. On the other hand, Pakistan last registered a magnificent ODI series win in South Africa. Thus, it will be really important for both these teams to start this ODI series on a winning note.
