The Asian side which performed excellently in the recently concluded Test series failed to show the fighting spirit in the 50-over format, and this lack of morale resulted in the loss in the initial match.

Mohammed Amir's inclusion in the playing eleven is still in a dilemma as the young man walked out of the ground in Southampton due to a side problem. Yasir Shah will be leading the bowling attack from the front, and Azhar Ali has already conveyed the need of picking wickets to the leg break spinner.England is expected to play with the same eleven that won the first outing. The presence of Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Jason Roy will help Moran to sit back and relax, as the batting department is settled by all means.

Pitch and weather conditions

Unlike the pitch in Southampton which was dry, the surface in Lords is filled with grass, and it may compel Eoin to pick a seamer in the place of Moen Ali who is not performing according to his potential.

The chances of rain are low, and the weather is dry with less humidity.

The curator believes that this surface is a batting paradise, and a high scoring game is on cards without any doubts.

The captain who wins the toss will choose to bat first, and they will be aiming to put up a competitive total on the board.
