Players in the Spotlight – England
The team full of professional, talented and in form players is ready to take on Pakistan that is really an unpredictable side for some uncertain, but right reasons. Eoin Morgan played a stunning innings against Australia that helped the team to approach further in the event. Ben Stokes historical performance against arch rival Aussies is also written with golden words in history book. Joe Root, Willey and Wood are also performing well with bat and ball, and they are really key assets for the entire team supporting well. Buttler, Moeen Ali and Billings are heavily in form and they are using the tactics in professional way as they did against Bangladesh.
Bairstow, AD Hales and JT Ball are also well with their bat and would be utilizing the pitch conditions as exactly as they will have to especially in this important game. It would be not an easy task for the English side to face Pakistani seamers if they get the bowling supportive pitch.
Players in the Spotlight – Pakistan
Pakistan is using a rare combination in each and every game so far playing unexpectedly. Sometimes their openers do the job, sometimes tale ender and sometimes their bowlers. In the game against South Africa, the entire team was outstanding including batting, bowling and fielding. Sarfraz Ahmed is in form as he played against Sri Lanka in the 12th match. Junaid Khan proved his selection perfect by picking up the wickets at important stage.
Ahmed Shehzad was not in form and Fakhar Zaman took his place, he has played two matches so far that is really a charming addition in the team. Zaman also scored his maiden half century on 12th June, 2017. Babar Azam is young gun of Pakistan performing up to the mark in his last couple of innings. Fahim Ashraf is in charge and playing an excellent piece of cricket.
Mohammad Hafeez is not going well and failed to perform while his spot in the middle order is really a question mark and the selectors must think for this. Junaid Khan, Mohammad Amir and Hasan Ali, the best bowling attack we have seen so far in the entire Champions Trophy 2017 event. The experience Shoaib Malik is also not performing, his form and experience is at risk right now, but he would have to take control against England if needed.
