In the 43rd game of the tournament at Lord’s Pakistan would take on Bangladesh in what would be the last league game for the sides. Bangladesh is out of contention for the semi-finals after their loss to India while Pakistan has looked in good form with three back to back wins which have ignited the hopes for the side to make it to the semi-finals if the result of England’s game against New Zealand goes in their favor.
Pakistan has been building the momentum in the last few games where they have looked in brilliant form and would like to continue with that. Bangladeshi bowlers have let the side down in most of the games and it would be interesting to see how they turn up for the next game. Pakistan isn’t likely to drop guard given the importance of this game to their fortunes.

Sarfarz Ahmed’s side has made the greatest of comebacks in the tournament and with three consecutive wins, they are now aiming for a berth in the semi-finals of the tournament. Their last win against Afghanistan came in a nail biter and this would definitely have added to the confidence of the side. While their qualification still rests on the fate of other teams Ahmed would want his side to play freely and win the next game.
Fakhar Zamand and Imam-ul-Haq have done well opening the batting but have failed to convert their starts into big scores which they would need to do in the next game. In the middle order, Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez have done well and so have Haris Sohail and skipper Sarfaraz. Imad Wasim’s cameo won them the last game and this makes the batting very strong for the side.
It is the Pakistani bowling attack that has impressed the most in the last few games. Mohammad Amir has been at his best in the tournament and Shaheen Afridi did well in the last game. Wahab Riaz also seems to have got back his form. With Hafeez, Wasim and Shahadab Khan in the attack the bowling attack looks very strong going into this game.

It was a spirited performance from Mashrafe Mortaza’s side against India in the last game but they fell short ending their dreams of making it to the semi-finals of the tournament. The side has played well in most of its games and the skipper and the team can hold their heads high. As they take on Pakistan in the last game the side would want to end their campaign in the tournament on a high.
Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar have played well in the tournament and shall look to give their side a good start. Shahib Al Hasan has had a fantastic tournament so far and played well in the last game. Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das and Mosaddek Hossain make the middle order strong for the side and having Shabbir Rahman and Mohammad Saifuddin in the lower order add to the strength of the side.
Mustafizur Rahman has been blowing well and restricted the Indians in the death overs in the last game to pick up a five-wicket haul. Shakib and Sarkar also bowled well in the last game. But it is the performance of Mortaza and Saifuddin with the ball that is causing concerns to the side as they continue leaking runs and this is something the side needs to work on in the next game.
Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mahmudullah, Soumya Sarkar, Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal

The skies are likely to be clear in London on July 05 and this makes the conditions perfect for a game of cricket. The pitch has been an excellent one to bat on so far in the series and it is likely to remain the same in the next game with the ball coming on to the bat. The team batting first would need a score in excess of 300 runs to win here.
Lord’s is undoubtedly one of the best batting surfaces on English soil. The pitch offers true bounce that allows the batsmen to hit through the line. The relatively shorter boundaries also make it easy for the batsmen. Spinners enjoy bowling as the game progresses and the pitch tends to turn slightly slower.
The three games played so far have seen the side batting first pose a huge score and win all the games. The pitch tends to start assisting the spinners in the latter end of the game and we expect the side winning the toss to bat first and try registering a big score on the board.
Pakistan has made a strong comeback in the last three games. They have played well as a unit after the lows they saw in the first half of the tournament. Bangladesh, on the other hand, has played better than the points table would suggest and they have put up a good fight in all the games that they have played so far. What separates the two sides is their bowling and Pakistan has a better bowling attack. With a must-win game for them, we expect the Pakistanis to emerge victoriously
