After being blasted apart by West Indies in their opening game, Pakistan will look to make amends, especially in their batting, and aim for a comeback when they take on hot-favourites England in their second World Cup fixture at Trent Bridge, Nottingham today.

England vs Pakistan: Pakistan eye comeback against fired-up England

Playing against Windies, Pakistan was not able to deal with the short balls, with Andre Russell and Oshane Thomas both having them hopping around, but they managed to score only 103 runs and seemed to be in all sorts of trouble. None of their batsmen showed temperament and the ability to handle the short-pitch deliveries, and even rash shots by some of their batsmen didn't help Pakistan's cause.

There is good chance that a number of short balls at very decent pace will be heading their way as England have the likes of Mark Wood, Jofra Archer and Liam Plunkett in their pace battery.

The only silver lining for Pakistan was in the form of Mohammad Amir, who bowled superbly against the likes of Chris Gayle and Shai Hope and picked up all the three wickets.

England, on the other hand, seems to have all their bases covered. Their batting clicked against South Africa with Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes all scoring half centuries and making sure they went past the 300-run mark against South Africa. Their bowling has also been bolstered with the inclusion of Archer who bowled with sheer pace and gave a hard time to the Proteas batsmen at the Kennington Oval.

England would definitely be the more confident side going into the match and would want to replicate the performance they came out with against Pakistan during the five-match ODI series where Sarfaraz Ahmad's men were whitewashed before the World Cup.

England vs Pakistan: Dream 11 Top Picks

From the host team, England it would be wise to opt for Joe Root, whose right handed batting prowess could propel the team to victory, Eoin Morgan- who is another promising batsman who has performed well in the past and is consistent. Finally, pick Jofra Archer as he is a right arm fast bowler and could give the Pakistani batters a run for their money.

From the contenders from the east, Pakistan, pick Imam Ul Haq, Babar Azam and spin all-rounder Shadab Khan. The three of them make an amazing combo by themselves and having them on your team wouldn’t go wrong. Each of them is an experienced and consistent performer. They have been in the game for a while and understand the nuances of the sport very well, which make them perfect picks for your team.
