Game 44 of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 will feature a clash between England and Pakistan at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday, November 11. England are already out of the tournament, and Pakistan have a slim chance of qualifying. The Men in Green will be keen on putting in their best performance and hope for the best.
Pakistan will be coming into the game on the back of a miraculous win bestowed on them through the Duckworth Louis-Stern method (DLS) and courtesy of some aggressive batting up front against New Zealand, and with the clash against England approaching, it could be interesting to see how Pakistan fares.
