England seek ODI redemption over Pakistan

New delhi,November 10: Pakistan and England last squared off in a One-Day International (ODI) back in 2012. Since then, both sides have grappled with limited success in the format, particularly in the multi-team events and where they have found themselves often languishing in the middle of the rankings table; 2015, however, has been an eye-opener for both the sides. Following another unflattering World Cup campaign, both teams have adopted a positive brand of cricket with special emphasis on youth.

Pakistan, under Azhar Ali, bounced back from the ignominy of a 3-0 whitewash in Bangladesh to win the ODI series against Zimbabwe (home and away) and Sri Lanka (away). In the process, they just about sneaked above West Indies to the eighth spot in the ICC rankings, sealing qualification to the 2017 Champions Trophy.

England, for so long a middling ODI side, have been given a fresh lease of life under Eoin Morgan. Since their debacle in Australia, they have run both the World Cup finalists - New Zealand (won 3-2) and Australia (lost 2-3) - close.
