England hold a 1-0 lead after two matches of the five-game ODI series against Pakistan, but they can take little for granted against such a dangerous opponent.

The first match of the series was lost to rain, while the second was won by a mere 12 runs by the hosts, despite a nine-six blitz by Jos Buttler.

There has been little to choose between the two teams to date, with the third ODI taking place at Bristol on Tuesday.

Pakistan to win third ODI @ 2/1

The tourists are appeal at 2/1 as they have pushed England hard so far and may well feel that it is their time to get over the line for the win.

Top team batsman, Fakhar Zaman @ 33/10

Left-handed opening batsman Fakhar Zaman will probably need to maintain his impressive record against England if Pakistan are to cause an upset.

He made a superb 138 in the loss at the Rose Bowl on Saturday, while he also contributed 57 when Pakistan beat England in the semi-finals of the ICC Champions Trophy two summers ago.

His only failure against England came when dismissed for three in the rain-ruined first ODI of this current series.

Top team bowler, Jofra Archer @ 7/2

The man to inflict that low score on Fakhar was Jofra Archer and he is likely to get another chance to impress, especially as the home attack only just saw their side home at the weekend.

Archer has displayed good control and pace aplenty in his short international career to date, building on the fine impression he made at the recent Indian Premier League.

He is a near certainty to secure a World Cup squad place and the usually seam-friendly conditions at Bristol should offer him a perfect opportunity to display his talents once again.
