SHARJAH: Pakistan would look to recover after it was out classed in all departments in the second ODI by England, when the two sides will meet for the third encounter at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.
The third one day intentional (ODI) of the four-match series between Pakistan and England will begin at 4:00 pm Pakistan Standard Time (PST).
The PTV Sports will telecast the match live. Earlier on November 13, England leveled the series 1-1 when it defeated Pakistan by 95 runs in the second ODI at Abu Dhabi. While batting first, England scored 284 for 5 in 50 overs. In reply, Pakistan were all-out for 188 in 45.5 overs. It was Alex Hales whose 109 runs helped England to put a decent total on the score board.
From Pakistan, no batsman except Sarfaraz Ahmad could make a worth praising score. He made 64 runs.
The Pakistani leg-spinner Yasir Shah’s inclusion for the third ODI is not yet confirmed. He is reported to have sustained a knee injury. However, the opener Ahmad Shehzad who did not play the initial two games, is likely to be the part of 11-member squad for the third ODI.
“”England bounced back and bounced back well. We probably were not thinking that they are going to play that well and now we have to play out of our skins to make it 2-1,” the Pakistan Coach Waqar Younis said according to www.espncricinfo.com.
Pakistan 3rd ODI Squad (Probable)
Azhar Ali (Captain), Ahmed Shehzad, Muhammad Hafeez, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed (Wicketkeeper), Anwar Ali, Wahab Riaz, Yasir Shah, Muhammad Irfan.
England 3rd ODI Squad (Probable)
Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (Captain), James Taylor, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Reece Topley.
