Host England will be looking to complete 3-0 whitewash in the ODI series when they take on Pakistan in the final game at Birmingham.

In the 2nd game, Phil Salt and James Vince splendid half-centuries followed by Lewis Gregory’s all-round heroics was enough to see England beat Pakistan and clinch the ODI series at Lords. It is quite a remarkable achievement as this is England’s second string side that participated in this ODI series.

On the other hand, Pakistan have looked completely out of sorts on pitches that have offered something for the quick bowlers. The team management might go for some changes for this dead rubber. Captain Babar Azam will need to lead from the front to help Pakistan end their losing streak at Edgbaston.

Pakistan Preview

The visitors could make two changes as Agha Salman could make his debut in place of Sohaib Maqsood, who has failed to make an impact with the bat in this ODI series. Faheem Ashraf could be replaced by Mohammad Nawaz, who is expected to get a game at Birmingham.
