Last Time Pakistan played at Oval was against archrival India where they outclassed them in champions trophy final. Fakhar Zaman was the man of the show and Pakistan would be hoping the same performance from 29 years old opening batsman. The other man is Muhammad Amir, however, his recent performance is not good.
Pakistan after losing only t20i against England will be looking to bounce back and repeat that performance of champions trophy. This series is a real test for Pakistan team before the World Cup. As the recent performance of Pakistan team In ODI is not up to that mark. They have lost 12 of their 23 matches played last year, while they also suffered a 5-0 whitewash through Australia last year. But that team was led by Shoaib Malik in the absence of regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed.
This series is a true test as Sarfraz led Pakistan team will take on England today at Oval. Pakistan team will also be looking for the right combination before the world cup. Match will start at 5 pm Pakistan standard time.
