Both teams up for the tussle without any injury scare in the respective sides
After the loss against Afghanistan, Pakistan will be cautious in choosing their way of play. In the previous match, low order didn’t capitalize on the good foundation laid by the top order batsmen. Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed would want to get some runs under his name while Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik would also aim to get some runs. Babar Azam looks in good touch as always but the bowling needs to perform well if they are to boost the morale of the side.

Bangladesh will be quite confident coming into the tournament, simply because they won a Tri-series final against West Indies. For now, it seems that Bangladesh has sorted their issues of getting big totals. Their bowling needs a little work and captain Mashrafe Mortaza would hope that the bowlers learn to adjust the English conditions as quickly as possible.
The pitch in Cardiff is likely to support the seamers early in the day with the new ball. As the day progresses, we could see spinners coming into the game as well because of the length of the square boundaries. The weather is likely to be on the positive side of things, with no threats of rains at this point in time.
