Series: – ICC Champions Trophy, 2017
Venue: – Sophia Gardens, Cardiff
Date & Time: – 14th, Jun, 3:00PM
Pitch And Weather Report:-
It will be a batting pitch because there has not been rain recently. There is less chance of rain in yesterday’s match too. This will be the first semi-final match of the Champions Trophy 2017.
Please wait for more latest news.
Pakistan have won the last match in Sri Lanka from this venue. Pakistan’s batting in this match was not good but at the end, they won the match.
Captain Morgan gave him consistent opportunities while relying on Jason Roy but so far Jason Roy did not show any special performance in the match. For this reason, Morgan might possibly give Jonny Barstow the chance at Jason Roy’s place.
There is no doubt that there is no shortage of batsmen in England. There is a lot of depth in England’s batting. Alex Hales, Morgan, Buttler, Stokes, Root and Bairstow all these batsmen will complete the lack of Jason Roy.

Pakistan:- Sarfraz Ahmed(w/k,c), Shoaib Malik, Mohammed Hafeez, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Azhar Ali, Imad Wasim, Mohammed Amir, Hasan Ali, Junaid Khan, fahim ashraf.
