Bangladesh vs Pakistan
03:30 PM +06
43rd match, ICC Cricket World Cup at Lord’s, Jul 5, 2019
When: Friday, July 5, 2019, 10.30am Local Time, 3:00 PM IST
Where: Lord’s, London.
What to expect: The rain that once threatened to ruin this tournament is long gone. Sun and temperatures in the late 20s are expected for this match, a continuation of the good weather of recent days. The pitch should be hard and dry as a result, which will likely mean a decent day out for the batsmen. There might be some spin on offer too.
Head coach Steve Rhodes said Bangladesh would not be rotating for the sake of rotation, so a full-strength team is expected. Mushfiqur Rahim suffered a blow to the elbow in the nets on Thursday but should be fit for the game. Mehidy Hasan, left out against India, could return given the dry weather. If that happens, Rubel Hossain would probably be preferred to Mohammad Saifuddin after performing better of the two against Virat Kohli’s men. Mahmudullah, who missed the game against India with a calf injury, could return too.
Given Pakistan still have a chance of qualification, no matter how remote, they will be reluctant to rotate their squad and may name an unchanged side from their victory over Afghanistan last weekend. If they do move things about, 18 year-old quick Mohammad Hasnain could get a run and Shoaib Malik could be included for a World Cup farewell.
Possible XI: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfraz Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir
