England, the only side yet to lose in the tournament, begin as favourites after winning 11 out of 12 ODIs and posting in excess of 300 in five of the past six matches in which they have batted first. Their blistering form with the bat continues the dramatic turnaround in fortunes since Eoin Morgan’s side crashed out of the 2015 World Cup at the group stage.
In 47 ODIs since then, England batsmen have scored 25 centuries, compared with 22 in 88 matches during the previous four years. Three of those have come from the bat of Jason Roy but the opener could lose his spot to Jonny Bairstow at Cardiff after scoring just 51 runs in eight innings.
While Roy has failed, every other batsman has hit form with Alex Hales (151), Joe Root (212), Eoin Morgan (175) and Ben Stokes (150) among the top 11 tournament run-scorers. Moeen Ali could find himself promoted to opener should Roy be axed, or the selectors could alternatively turn to Bairstow even though the Yorkshireman has never opened in an ODI.
Morgan insisted that England will continue to play with attacking intent, saying: “I think it’s been reassuring that we’ve got to the semi-final by playing in our own way. The game here against New Zealand wasn’t exactly crash, bang, wallop. Looking back on it, we probably did get to a par score and felt as if we fell short, and beating a strong side like New Zealand with a par score is a huge strength.
While England, favourites to lift the title at the start of the tournament, have put in convincing displays throughout – beating Bangladesh, New Zealand and Australia en route to the final four – Pakistan’s path has been rather more undulating.
After suffering a comprehensive 124-run defeat to rivals India in their rain-affected clash at Edgbaston, Pakistan stunned South Africa to claim an unexpected 19-run victory on DLS. That gave the team who came into the tournament ranked eighth the chance to reach the semi-finals by beating Sri Lanka, a feat they duly achieved by three wickets on Monday.
That success, however, was Pakistan’s only win in the five-match series – a series in which England racked up a world record 444-3 off 50 overs, featuring 16 sixes. Pakistan are also considering changes with coach Mickey Arthur planning to meet captain Sarfraz to discuss whether he should bat higher after his unbeaten 61 saw them home against Sri Lanka.
