ENG v PAK 2021: Lord’s, London pitch history and ODI records


After thrashing Pakistan by nine wickets at Sophia Gardens, England will want to continue in the same vein at Lord’s in the second ODI of the series.

Playing under Ben Stokes’ captaincy, an inexperienced English side dominated Pakistan in the first ODI. Pace bowler Saqib Mahmood destroyed the Men in Green with a four-wicket haul, while debutant Zak Crawley stitched up a magnificent 120-run second-wicket partnership with Dawid Malan.


Pakistan will be keen to bounce back at Lord’s. Babar Azam’s men have fond memories of playing at Lord’s as they won both of their 2019 Cricket World Cup group stage matches on this ground. They defeated South Africa by 49 runs and followed it up with a 94-run win against Bangladesh at the ground.

The pitch at Lord’s assists the batsmen and the pacers. Shaheen Shah Afridi picked up six wickets in his last ODI at this venue, while Imam-ul-Haq scored a century in his last ODI knock at Lord’s.
