SOUTHAMPTON (92 News) – The first One Day International of the five match series between Pakistan and England will be played at Southampton on Wednesday (today). The match will start at 6:00PM Pakistan Standard Time.
England have undergone major overhaul since their disastrous outing the ICC 2015 World Cup, with their focus being on playing aggressive cricket, which has paid dividends.
Pakistan rested fast bowler Wahab Riaz and leg-spinner Yasir Shah for Ireland game and are expected to bring both of them back for Wednesday’s game.
Yasir could replace either Imad Wasim, who bagged five wickets against Ireland, or Mohammad Nawaz while Wahab is likely to come in for Hassan Ali.
Pakistan, who recently have risen to the No 1 ranking in the Test format, sadly have struggled in the shorter formats of the game over the past two years, finding themselves in ninth spot in the ICC rankings with 87 points.
England captain Eoin Morgan said that the team could play three spinners in the first game of their five-match series against Pakistan in Southampton.
A fixture guaranteed to make history, because the third umpire will call front foot no-balls, will take another interesting twist if England field Liam Dawson alongside Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.
The Hampshire left-arm spinner is hoping to play on his home ground, particularly in dry conditions in the day-night game at the Ageas Bowl.
"Having Liam Dawson brings the option of playing three spinners and that is something we might have to take into consideration as we look ahead to the winter tours of Bangladesh and India," said Morgan. "It will be a very tough series against Pakistan especially as the recent warm weather means conditions may suit them more than they suit us initially. It is a good test leading into the winter."
