Pitch Conditions And Toss
An extremely fine surface, the fact that this is going to be the first match to be contested over here, the bat couldn’t have asked for a more exquisite surface to come out and bat on. The ball comes onto the bat squarely, allowing the batsmen all the time and room in the world to cream the ball to the fence with the team winning the toss looking to step out and field first today.
Players to look out for
Pakistan: Javeria Khan, Bismah Maroof, Nida Dar, Nashra Sandhu
For Pakistan, Javeria Khan and Bismah Maroof are important while Aliya Riaz should also earn more brownie points.
England: Danielle Wyatt, Heather Knight, Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole
Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont are expected to be amongst the runs again irrespective of England bats first or chase.
