This will be the second match of the day at this venue which means the surface may play a little slower than usual. However, run-scoring should not be too difficult once the batters get their eye in.
Bright and sunny skies are expected on matchday, with temperatures set to peak in the mid-20s. Humidity is expected to be around 30% and there is no threat of rain.
Pakistan opened their World Cup campaign with a victory for the first time in the competition's history. They will be looking to carry that momentum into their next game against England, who are one of the favourites for the title.
England are known to struggle against quality spin and Pakistan might be tempted to include Sadia Iqbal in the playing XI.
