England

England Captain Ben Stokes made the right choice by winning the toss and bowling first. Pacer Saqib Mahmood showed his skills with the new ball and picked up the big wicket of Babar Azam. Lewis Gregory also delivered a probing spell with the new ball and dismissed Mohammad Rizwan with unplayable delivery.

Debutant Craig Overton was disciplined in his first outing for England and picked up key wickets of Shadab Khan and Shaheen Afridi.

Playing his ODI debut for England, Zak Crawley produced a well-timed half-century with the help of seven boundaries. Opener David Malan also showed excellent form with the bat and produced an unbeaten 68 off 69 balls to help England complete the target with 28 overs to spare.

Pakistan

The visitors might drop middle-order batsman Saud Shakeel which could open up room for a debut for Abdullah Shafique. Sarfaraz Ahmed, who remained on the bench in the first game, could come in too if they decide to play an extra batsman in the playing XI for this important clash.

Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, and Imam-ul-Haq departed in quick succession to see Pakistan lose their first four wickets inside 10 overs. Swashbuckling opener Fakhar Zaman showed some fight with the bat and scored 47 runs off 67 balls with the help of six fours. All-rounder Shadab Khan scored 30 runs off 43 balls to help Pakistan push their score beyond the 100-run mark.
