After a record ODI score a humiliating defeat at Nottingham now there is not much left for the series as the Hosts have won the series 3-0 and Pakistan is still looking totally out of clue that how to do anything. They were outclassed by England in all departments and only thing they can do is to win the remaining match and end this series at a respectable note. The 4th Odi of the series will be played at Leeds and it will be a day night match which will start at 6:00 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from Pakistan where they have nothing left for them in the series as this was the worst performance ever by Pakistan in ODI cricket. Pakistani bowlers were totally outclassed and now Pakistan cricket Board is seriously thinking about changing the captain. Some senior players are also going to be dropped after the series in which Muhammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz are on the list. Sarfaraz Ahmed might be the ODI captain after this series. Coming towards the 4th ODI and looking at the recent performance of the team it will be unfair to expect any excellent performance from Pakistan but now they have nothing much left to lose and they can make this thing a strength. Pakistani batsman also needs to be much more consistent and attacking as they haven’t done much in the series so far and People are expecting a lot from them. Bowlers also needs to be on their line and fielding standard of Pakistan should be improved. Pakistan really needs to start playing modern day ODI cricket as they can’t survive by just scoring 250 in a match and then try to defend it. They also need to give consistent chances to their young players instead of experience players and try to use the talent in them.
Coming towards England who were Fabulous in the last one and a half year. They have won a lot of series and they have given proper chances to their youngsters which is now helping them to win matches. They have won the series and now they will try to use their benched played for the rest of the ODIs. England might try young Liam Dawson for the rest of the 2 ODIs as he has done an excellent job for the England Lions side. England will also be aiming for a Whitewash as their confidence is high and they surely have ability to do this.
Pitch will be a batting wicket as there is not much grass on the wicket. Chances of rain are not much in the match.
