England's Quest for a Place in the Champions Trophy 2025

England has had a rather disappointing campaign in the Cricket World Cup 2023, managing to win just two out of their eight games.

In their previous outing against the Netherlands, England faced some early troubles, losing six wickets before even reaching the 200-run mark. However, it was Ben Stokes who emerged as the hero of the game, scoring his first-ever ODI World Cup century and adding 129 runs for the seventh wicket. His knock of 108 runs from just 84 deliveries propelled England to a total of 339 runs for the loss of nine wickets in 50 overs.

The Netherlands, on the other hand, had a shaky start to their chase, losing four wickets before reaching the 100-run mark. They eventually succumbed to the pressure and were all out for 179 runs, handing England a resounding 160-run victory. Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid were the standout bowlers for England in this game, both taking three wickets.

Pakistan, too, has had a rollercoaster ride in the Cricket World Cup 2023, winning and losing four games each. Their chances of making it to the top four now hinge on their performance in the remaining matches. A win against England would require nothing short of a miracle for them.

In their previous game against New Zealand, Pakistan faced a daunting target of 401 runs set by the opposition. New Zealand's Rachin Ravindra scored yet another century in the tournament, while Kane Williamson made a splendid comeback with 95 runs off 79 deliveries. Pakistan, however, showed great resilience, with Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam forging a remarkable partnership of 194 runs for the second wicket before rain interrupted the game. In the end, Pakistan managed to win by 21 runs by the DLS method.
