Defending champions England are virtually out of the reckoning for a semi-final spot. However, the Eng vs Pak World Cup match on 11 November is a must-win for Pakistan. After Pakistan’s fortuitous win against New Zealand in their previous match, they can still get to the knockouts. Both Pakistan and New Zealand are tied on eight points each after eight matches. Assuming that both teams win their respective last matches, net run rate will decide which team goes through.

Weather and Pitch Report
Sunny weather awaits Kolkata on 11 November, with the daytime temperature likely to hit 31 degrees Celsius. The night time temperature is likely to be much cooler at 21 degrees.
During a previous match between India and South Africa, the Eden Gardens track provided some assistance to pace bowlers. Runs are there to be had if batters are prepared to dig in.
England vs Pakistan Today Prediction: Pakistan to Win
England are playing for pride. Their squad is full of marquee names who have failed to deliver in this edition of the World Cup.
Before their match against New Zealand, Pakistan were all but out of the World Cup. After the Kiwis batted first and scored 401 runs, nobody would have given Pakistan any hope of winning. However, a combination of favourable circumstances allowed the improbable outcome to happen.
Rain intervention brought DLS into play. A brilliant hundred by Fakhar Zaman who replaced Imam-ul-Haq ensured that Pakistan were well ahead of the required rate when the match ended.
Zaman’s success underscored Pakistan’s faulty team selection in previous matches. They need a player like Zaman who plays fearless cricket to give them a good start in the powerplay overs. Neither Shafique nor Imam-ul-Haq answers that description.
Overall, Pakistan have disappointed their fans in this World Cup. Their bowling in particular has been below par. Before the World Cup, Much was expected of the likes of Hasan Rauf and Shadab Khan. While Afridi has taken a few wickets, he has not played to potential.
England’s bowling has been equally disappointing if that’s any consolation. Barring Woakes, no England bowler has looked likely to run through a rival side.
Though bookmakers’ odds favour England, I believe that Pakistan’s desperation will secure them the win.
