Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - ICC Cricket World Cup - Pakistan v Bangladesh - PrePlay
Match number 43 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will be played between Pakistan and Bangladesh at the iconic Lord's in London.
After a couple of losses, Pakistan have won three matches on the bounce and hence were hopeful of making it to the semi-finals, but after both India and New Zealand lost to England in back to back matches, their hopes are all but over. Despite that, both teams would want to make a statement by winning this match.
The two teams have clashed a total of 36 times in ODIs till now, out of which, Pakistan have won 31 and Bangladesh have won five matches. However, the Tigers have had the hold over the Men in Green in recent times. Bangladesh beat Pakistan 3-0 in a bilateral series and also defeated them quite comfortably in the 2018 Asia Cup.
In the last five matches played by Pakistan, they have won three and lost two, while Bangladesh have lost three and won two.
Pakistan are currently placed at the fifth spot in the points table, just below New Zealand with four wins and three losses from eight matches. They are with nine points, which is two more than Bangladesh. However, the Tigers have a better run rate and will finish above Pakistan if they succeeded in winning this match.
Lord's, just like most surfaces in the World Cup, will suit the team which bats first and will start to slow down as the match moves forward.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Pakistan- Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Imad Wasim, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi
Bangladesh- Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Liton Das, Mossadek Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman
