Having kick-started their campaign with a thumping win over South Africa, hosts and top-ranked England will look to continue their momentum when they take on a bruised Pakistan side in their second clash of the 2019 ICC World Cup at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Monday. 

The Eoin Morgan-led side are brimming with confidence after sealing a crushing 104-run triumph over Faf du Plessis' South Africa to begin their campaign at the mega event on a positive note.

Pakistan, on the other hand, surrendered before West Indies in their first ICC World Cup 2019 match at The Oval, slumping to their 11th straight ODI defeat including a 4-0 series loss to England recently.

Heading into the clash against England, the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side will look to make amendments and bounce back strongly in order to seal their first win of the ongoing event.
