In the upcoming clash of the 2023 Cricket World Cup, England is set to face off against Pakistan in the second-to-last group stage match on Saturday. Despite being the reigning champions from the 2019 Cricket World Cup, England has had a challenging campaign, securing victory in just two matches so far. However, their recent triumph against the Netherlands has injected a sense of optimism into the team.

Meanwhile, Pakistan is still vying for a spot in the top four but must overcome England by a margin of 287 runs to level with fourth-placed New Zealand on points and surpass them in net run rate. Join us as we preview this crucial encounter, set to kick off at 14:00 local time at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

The recent win against the Netherlands brought much-needed relief to England's players and fans. Although this upcoming match poses a more formidable challenge, the prospect of securing a place in the 2025 Champions Trophy is sure to motivate England to deliver another stellar performance.
