Their surrender in the face of a short bowling barrage from West Indies means they can expect much the same against England, whose bowlers will keep them on the back foot so long they might bruise their Achilles heels.These two sides played each other in a five-match series just last month, and while England won 4-0, there was no sign of the Pakistan that showed up against West Indies. The pitch - the same one on which England have twice broken the record for highest ODI score, most recently reaching 481 for 6 against Australia last year - is expected to be especially flat, but Morgan insisted it was quite different to that wicket in how it was expected to behave.Forget variation, forget unpredictability, let Jofra Archer bowl short to Pakistan. It will make him the fourth player in the current England setup to reach the mark, behind Morgan, Joe Root and Jos Buttler.Pakistan and England have played each other seven times in World Cups, with three wins apiece and one no-result in the group stages of the 1992 World Cup."It's well known we enjoy chasing. Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood backs his side to stop England surpassing their own milestone of 481 on the same Trent Bridge pitchPakistan's lack of success with the new ball means one thing - for the quick to come good, the entire attack needs to come good'They have to play 300 balls to reach record, we have to bowl 10 good balls to get 10 wickets' - Pakistan bowling coach'To get anywhere near 481 you have to play unbelievably well' - England skipperPakistan's surrender to short bowling in opening game means they can expect more of the same from hostsTo help make this website better, to improve and personalize your experience and for advertising purposes, are you happy to accept cookies and other technologies?
