England vs. Pakistan: Fourth ODI Preview

England and Pakistan will lock horns in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) of the five-match series in Nottingham on Friday. The home side are clearly proven to be the better side as they've a 2-0 lead with just two more matches to play after comprehensive 12-run and six-wicket wins in the second and third ODI after the series opener was washed out. Trent Bridge in Nottingham will be used as the venue for the contest, which will be hosting its 45th ODI. Highest team score of 481-5 at the venue in a 50-over contest was registered by the home side in the match against Australia in 2018, whereas lowest team score of 83 was registered by South Africa in 2008. Highest individual score of 171 at the venue was registered by England's Alex Hales, whereas best bowling figures of 6-25 was registered by India's Kuldeep Yadav. At the same venue back in 2016, England scored 444 while batting first and subsequently thrashed Pakistan by 169 runs.

England suffered a major blow for the match on Friday as captain Eoin Morgan will miss the clash after being penalised with a one-match suspension following slow over-rate in Bristol. In his absence, the team will be heavily relying on in-form opener Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, veteran right-hander Joe Root and wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler to score bulk of the runs, whereas on the bowling front, the onus will be once again on pacers to do bulk of the damage.
