England's Roy back for India match

England captain Eoin Morgan hits out against Afghanistan

The matches with both sides scoring 300 plus totals have been an exception in the 2019 World Cup and that could also be attributed to the fact that a tournament of this magnitude is a different ball game altogether compared to a bi-lateral series between the two countries. "Babar Azam and Haris Sohail played incredibly well", Ajmal said on Twitter.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will also benefit from an England defeat as it will increase their chances of landing on the final four spots.

Few would have anticipated the Proteas being eliminated prior to the final week of the group phase, but their performances prior to Friday had been miserable, while West Indies peaked in their opening game against Pakistan and have since fallen away badly. Axed after the West Indies defeat, this versatile batsman might just hold the key to continuing Pakistan's timely rise.

The Green Army will certainly aim to win their remaining two matches against Afghanistan and Bangladesh. Team with the better run rate will qualify.

Haris Sohail on Pakistan's progress: "We've kept it very simple". "We were quite aggressive in our approach and how we went about things". They have two hard matches to end their group stage campaign - with India and a resurgent Pakistan. "When you get off to a good start, you get your foot on the throat and you don't want to let it off". Bangladesh have won only five while one game was inconclusive. Rashid is a different spinner, a different bowler to other spinners. With no less than half a dozen match-winners in its squad, led by Irishman Eoin Morgan, England could create history this summer. And the 1992 Champions are thoroughly up at the moment, having beaten South Africa and New Zealand in their last two fixtures. With Martin Guptill and Colin Munro looking ever uneasy at the top of the order, fit-again Henry Nicholls is firmly in the frame.

What television channel is Australia vs New Zealand on in the United Kingdom? "When playing Australia, David Warner didn't play at all", he added.

While Mickey Arthur's men are dispensing all the "cricketainment" a team possibly can, it wouldn't hurt Pakistan to infuse a little consistency in the formula they have created. Australia will target him but ruffle him they will not. In 2003, India lost to Australia in the World Cup final to finish as runner-ups. "If we embrace the challenge that is in front of us and play anywhere near our potential we are more than capable of getting in the semis".

"We have to really dig deep in these last couple of games here, not go back on how we know we play well", he said. The defeat to Pakistan was a bit of a blip.
