They have been in good form in recent times. They are one of the tournament favorites for the world cup. They also have the big power hitters like Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Shai Hope in their batting line-up which can explode against any team.

On the other side, their bowling unit was inconsistent and weaker. But the availability of many all-rounders they have several options.
Pakistan Team Updates :
Pakistan team is currently going through a rough patch in the ODI cricket. In 2019, the Sarfaraz Ahmed led Pakistan team suffered humiliating defeats at the hands of Australia and England. They won only two ODI,s before losing ten matches in a row. Pakistan didn’t have a good time at warm-up matches also. They end up losing against Afghanistan, and their match against Bangladesh was abandoned due to rain.
But Pakistan has the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haque and Babar Azam who are in great form. Coming to the bowling department, they have the likes of Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali who have the ability to cause damage to any batting line-up. But coming to their fielding, they have been very poor, which has let them down on many occasions.
Trent bridge is expected to be not -so cloudy for with some sunny intervals in between the match. So rain is expected to stay away from the match. The Nottingham weather is expected to be ranging between 16-22 degrees with no possibility of rain.
The flat pitch at Trent bridge tends to be heaven for batting and it is expected to remain the same throughout the match. It may not help pacers to swing the ball, which will make batsman score high. So we can expect a high scoring contest.
