England to cope without Morgan


England will aim to make sure of an ODI series win against Pakistan shorn of the services of captain Eoin Morgan for the fourth match of five at Trent Bridge on Friday.

And, despite the absence of Morgan due to suspension, all the omens appear to be pointing to another England victory, with the hosts already 2-0 up in the series after three games played.

England to win fourth ODI @ 10/31

Backing the Three Lions to win is not going to give a great return, but there really is no other way of looking at the match until it gets under way.

The home side have registered the two highest totals in ODI history at Trent Bridge, smashing 444-3 when Pakistan were beaten in Nottingham in 2016, before going on to club481/6 against Australia just under a year ago.

Add in that Morgan being absent will see Jos Buttler return to lead the side and the signals are that the Pakistan bowlers could be in for another very painful day.

Top team batsman – Jason Roy @ 16/5

The England opening partnership of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow have already made hay in this series, with the former probably slightly frustrated to have missed on making a century by being dismissed for 87 and 76 in the two completed matches.

The Surrey right-hander will want to cash in properly if he gets the chance, while a longer odds option comes in the form of Buttler at 9/2, with the stand-in skipper have been rested for the win in Bristol after reaching three figures at the Rose Bowl.

Top team bowler – Adil Rashid @ 3/1

Trent Bridge is not entirely a bowlers graveyard and the huge 242-run win over Australia last year saw spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali claim seven wickets between them.

Leg-spinner Rashid had figures of 4-47 against the Baggy Greens and, having been rested for the last match, will no doubt be keen to how exactly what he can do on a surface which may be dry enough to suit him perfectly.
