Just over two weeks after England and Pakistan played a one-day international match on the record-setting, run-rich pitch at Trent Bridge, the two teams return to the site of what was a surprisingly close contest won by England. The English side won by three wickets with just three balls remaining, per CricInfo. The rematch comes with much higher stakes; points on the 2019 Cricket World Cup table.
For Pakistan, who were comprehensively trounced by West Indies in their cup opener, the win is desperately needed as the team comes in on an 11-game ODI losing streak. The 2017 ICC Champions Trophy winners will look not only for points, but for a confidence boost against the favored host country, in the match that will live stream from Nottingham.

Pakistan’s bowlers face a daunting assignment, with the game set to be played on the same surface at Trent Bridge where England have set ODI world records for run totals, ESPN reports. England first set a record of 444 in a match against Pakistan in 2016, and then shattered that mark last year, posting a 481 for six against Australia.
In Pakistan’s seven-wicket loss to West Indies on Friday, in which they batted first and were bowled out for 105 within 22 overs, their batting lineup was highly vulnerable to the short ball from the Windies’ aggressive bowlers. But Pakistan pacer Wahab Riaz does not buy the idea that his side is vulnerable to short ball bowling, he told The Daily Mail.
“We didn’t play the short ball well but we’ve seen in past series that we can score runs against that sort of bowling,” he told the paper. “If people want to bowl us bouncers, then we will have no problems with that. It’s not a mental issue.”
