While the hosts began their World Cup campaign with a bang, recording a spectacular win against the Proteas, their loss against a struggling Pakistan side will be an important wakeup call for them.
While the batsmen did well, it was the bowling and fielding especially which was a bit disappointing for them. If the Englishmen have to go all the way, they’ll be wary of not repeating the same mistakes again.
Their next game is against Bangladesh at Cardiff on Saturday.
