Pakistan among top three favorites for ICC WC 2019: Eoin Morgan
On five-match ODI series with Pakistan, English skipper termed it an important series for World Cup 2019 preparations. He said, “We will have chance to play some very competitive cricket before WC 2019. At present, Pakistan is title holder of the ICC Champions Trophy.”
England, ranked No.1 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team rankings, have been widely touted as favourites for the mega-event. They are now set to face-off with Pakistan in a one-off T20I on 5 May followed immediately by five ODIs – an exercise that is sure to further sharpen both sides before the World Cup.
