World Cup 2019 is drawing near and the squad announcements have begun. New Zealand, Australia, India and Bangladesh have named their 15-man squads and the cricketing fraternity is busy picking their favorites to claim the title.
England ODI captain, Eoin Morgan, has said that Pakistan is among top three teams capable of winning the mega event.
Talking about the series against Pakistan, Morgan said that it will be a good preparation ahead of the World Cup.
[The Pakistan series] is a nice way to ease into the summer and gets some really good, competitive cricket going.
He further added that they are looking forward to the series.
They hold the Champions Trophy – playing extremely well to win that, in England – so it’s a series we’re all looking forward to.
The players doing well in the series will have the chance to press for World Cup selection, he reflected.
Pakistan will play a one-off T20I and 5 ODIs against England starting from 5th May.
