Jos Buttler, the captain of England, won the toss and chose to bat in Kolkata. This decision puts Pakistan in a difficult position to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. If Pakistan batted first, they would have needed to beat England by 287 runs to improve their net run-rate and surpass New Zealand. However, this task is nearly impossible.
Both teams made changes to their lineup, with Shadab Khan replacing Hasan Ali for Pakistan. The semi-finals are now set, with New Zealand facing India, and Australia taking on New Zealand. The teams for the match are listed at the end of the content.
