England’s upstart fast bowling sensation Jofra Archer was rested in the second ODI against Pakistan, and is now expected to be rested again in the third ODI, which, according to a CricBuzz report, is an all-but-certain sign that the 24-year-old is set to take a place on England’s Cricket World Cup squad. There are still bowling spots undecided, and one of those for England could go to leg spinner Joe Denly, who is expected to sub for the resting Adil Rashid, and try to make the most of his World Cup audition in the third one day international match that will live stream from Bristol.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the third England vs. Pakistan ODI match of the Cricket World Cup tune-up series, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. First ball is scheduled for 1 p.m. British Summer Time on Tuesday, May 14, at the 17,500-capacity Bristol County Ground, in Bristol, England. In Pakistan, the game starts at 5 p.m. Pakistan Standard Time.
In the United States, cricket fans will need to set their alarm clocks to catch the third ODI match of the series between England and Pakistan, with a start time of 8 a.m. ET on Tuesday, 5 a.m. PT. In India, the start time will be 5:30 p.m. India Standard Time.
On Pakistan’s side, a replacement will be required for pacer Mohammad Amir, who has taken ill and is now believed to have contracted a case of chicken pox, per ESPN. Not only will Amir be ruled out of the remaining ODI matches in the five-game series, but his place on the World Cup team now appears in doubt as well.
Amir could join spinner Shadab Khan on Pakistan’s sick-list, as Khan is also reported to be suffering from a virus. But with a deadline of May 23 to make final selections for the 2019 Cricket World Cup, Pakistan Coach Mickey Arthur has not announced any final decisions on either bowler, per CricBuzz.
