England Team Preview
The England is currently leading the 5 match series by 1-0 thank to the win in the first match on the back of heroics of JAsoy Roy and Joe Root and later, rain interrupted and England were declared winner according to d/l method.
Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan led side, has been impressive in the last couple of years. The inclusion of dynamic players like Alex Hales, Jason Roy and Joss Buttler has been the success of England in the shorter version of the cricket.
Captain Morgan is also the key in the middle order of England team along with all-rounder Ben stokes and Moeen Ali. The bowling is led brilliantly by the Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett. Chris Woakes continues to impress with his bowling, by hitting the good length and line.
The England team is completely transformed and has become the unforgeable force. They are looking for 2017 ICC Champion trophy and the upcoming world cup of 2019.
Morgan would look to continue his winning streak and they just need to tear up the batting department of Pakistan team.

Pakistan Team Preview
The Pakistan impressed everyone in the cricketing fraternity in the Test series, which they managed to draw by 2-2, but they were shown the mirror in the first ODI, where their batting department struggled.
And, then bowler failed to contain England batsman. Although, Pakistan got all the guns that will easily win them matches. The openers need to fire, especially Sharjeel Khan as he has the potential of winning the matches single handily and we saw the glimpse of this against the match against Ireland where he smashed 152 runs.
The middle order of Pakistan depend heavily on Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Sarfaraz Khan and experienced Shoaib Malik. The team got the quality of all-rounders in the form of Imad Wasim and Mohammad Rizwan.
There is still a possibility that Pakistan will include Yasir Shah and Sami Aslan in the playing XI for this ODI in place of Mohammad Hafeez and Wahab Riaz.
Azhar Ali will definitely look to lead his team from the front and will love to bounce back strongly in this match, but for this, their batting unit needs to smash the scoreboard with the mammoth total, so their bowlers can give some fight.

Azhar Ali(c), Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed(w), Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Nawaz, Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Umar Gul, Mohammad Amir, Sami Aslam, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Rizwan, Yasir Shah.
England is favourite to win this match.
