England are set to host Pakistan in the third ODI at the County Ground, Bristol. The hosts put up a commanding total in their previous encounter but Pakistan put up an impressive performance and fell short by just 12 runs while chasing 373. Another thrilling match can be expected when the two sides battle it out in the third ODI.

England have been the most consistent team in the limited overs format in the recent past, and that's been mainly due to their power-packed batting lineup. Jos Buttler played a sensational knock of 115 from just 55 balls and was rightfully declared the man of the match for his efforts, and the other batsmen are all extremely dangerous too.

With the ICC World Cup in sight and the batsmen in such good form, the hosts would be one of the favorites to win the trophy. The bowling department will be under scrutiny though, and they were hammered all over the park in their last outing.

On the other hand, Pakistan are an unpredictable side that can defeat any team on their day. The visitors have the potential to make a comeback in this series, but their consistency has been under the scanner throughout the last few years.

Pakistan came close to sealing a famous victory in their previous match courtesy Fakhar Zaman’s explosive innings, but the middle order failed to take them over the line. They would now be hoping to land a counter punch and register their first victory of the tour.
