by Himmat Singh Digital Marketer

England has scripted a historic win in the first test match against Pakistan. They secured a 3-wicket victory on the Day 4 of the game, all credits to Jos Butler and Chris Woakes.

During the first test match everyone was looking up to Pakistan, all due to their big lead in the second innings, but things took a turn and both Jos Butler as well as Chris Woakes hammered Pakistan’s bowling attack in the later game to lead England to victory.

Now, in the second test Pakistan will have to bat really well. Concerning the current position of Pakistan, other than Shan Masood nobody looked comfortable in the middle in the last game. Babar Azam is also required to pace-up his game, he looked good in the first innings but was struggling in the second.

On the other hand, England is expected to continue with their winning form.

Weather Conditions and Pitch Report

Weather conditions does not look good at all. Rain is expected throughout the test match, hinting upon the possible inclusion of D/L method.

Southampton pitch has provided assistance for both spinners and pacers. The most recent example is the West Indies win last month on this ground. If rain plays its part then, batting collapses might happen.

England

Ben Stokes will have to miss the rest of the series due to personal reason, which is a big loss for England. Zak Crawley is likely come in his place to strengthen the batting line up. If they follow the bowling rotation like they did in West Indies series, James Anderson might be given a rest and Sam Curran will come in his place

Probable XL-1. Rory Burns, 2. Dominic Sibley, 3. Zak Crawley, 4. Joe Root (c), 5. Ollie Pope, 6. Jos Buttler (wk), 7. Chris Woakes, 8. Dom Bess, 9. Sam Curran, 10. Stuart Broad, 11. Jofra Archer
