England on top in Nottingham

Cricket Betting

In their warm-ups for the 2019 World Cup, England put on quite the show against Pakistan this week. England chased down over 350 runs set as a challenge to them by the tourists. It wasn’t just the fact that England managed to complete a successful run chase, it was the ease with which they did it that was so impressive. England are 4/11 to win the fourth match* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 16th, 2019 at 3:16 p.m.) of the series at Trent Bridge on Friday.

England will be without their captain Eoin Morgan for this match because of a slow over-rate during their win over Pakistan in Bristol. It’s not going to be a big issue as it will be another chance to shuffle the line up just a little bit. They did for the third match of the series, including dropping Jos Buttler and still, England coasted to a six-wicket victory.

England chased down a target of 359 to claim the win in Bristol, putting them 2-0 up in the series with two to play. The target set by Pakistan looked as if it was going to be a good challenge for England and their shuffled batting order. It didn’t pan out that way as openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow tore into the Pakistan bowling attack. Roy scored 76 off just 55 balls before being caught and put together an opening partnership of 159. Bairstow went on to pick up a century, scoring 128 before he was bowled.

Bairstow to top score again?

Bairstow is joint 3/1 favourite with Joe Root to be England’s top scorer at Trent Bridge* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 14th, 2019 at 11:51 p.m.). This is, of course, all valuable stuff for England ahead of the summer’s World Cup which they are hosting. They look confident and full of self-belief. There was another key component to their win at Bristol over Pakistan.

Pakistan looked to be on course for an even bigger total, but England’s bowlers did a superb job of restricting their batting at the back end of their innings. It was that tightening up which really was the set up for their batsmen to get themselves into the game. Still, at the end of the day, it was England’s second highest ODI run chase.

This is a tough position for Pakistan now ahead of the world cup. Coming into this series it was their bowling attack which was deemed to be the strongest aspect of their game. That was totally destroyed on Bristol and the fielding display that they put on was woeful. There is going to be a long way back for them from there and they are 11/5 to haul themselves back into the series with a win* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on May 14th, 2019 at 11:51 p.m.).

Predictions

England were majestic in their run chase in Bristol and that will just have put even more wind in their sails. There is confidence soaring through every aspect of their game at the moment and they are likely to wrap up this series at Trent Bridge.
