England captain Jos Buttler won the toss and chose to bat against Pakistan in their final group match at the 50-overs World Cup at the Eden Gardens on November 11th. Despite already being eliminated, England hopes to end their losing streak and leave India on a positive note. Pakistan, on the other hand, still has a slim chance of qualifying for the semi-finals. England’s lineup remains unchanged, while Pakistan has brought in spin all-rounder Shadab Khan. Pakistan captain Babar Azam expressed confidence in opener Fakhar Zaman’s batting performance and stated that the team will give their best. India, South Africa, and Australia have already secured their spots in the semi-finals, with New Zealand likely to join them. The teams for the match are as follows:
Pakistan: Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan, Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Agha Salman, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Wasim
England: Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Jos Buttler (captain), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Gus Atkinson, Adil Rashid
