But they also have some great players in their top order like Mohammad Hafeez and Shan Masood who will have the responsibility to face the new ball. Ali can also get a chance to open the innings because of his great performance in the practice matches against Somerset and Sussex where he scored two centuries.
Pakistan team will have to give their best against England otherwise, they will have to face a great defeat like the one they faced back in 2010 when they lost the series 3-1. Unlike Pakistan-England have pretty much decided openers like Alastair Cook and Alex Hales who can prove to be a headache if they get going, Pakistan will have to get Alastair Cook out early.
Otherwise, he can be very dangerous and his last century also came against Pakistan in 2015. England also has some quality players in the middle order as well who helped their team to get a good total when their openers failed in their series against Sri Lanka.
As both the teams have some great seamers and the pitches are expected to help them so the top order batsmen of both the teams will have to play the best they can and they have to spend time in the middle which is not going to be easy for them.

The match is going to be played in Lord’s and the pitch is expected to help the fast bowlers as most of the pitches in England do but on the Lord’s wicket, no team has managed to take 20 wickets this season so it is going to be great to see that how the pitch behaves.
