However, as seen in the previous Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match, captains might feel like chasing the runs. Besides this, weather conditions should also be taken into consideration while making a decision.
Scheduled at Headingley Carnegie, this is the third ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match at the venue. It was first established in 1890 with the capacity of 17000 people.

This venue has also witnessed some of the greatest innings, like two Test triple-centuries by Don Bradman in 1930 and 1934. Besides him, John Edricd of Surrey has also made a Test triple hundred in 1965.
Named after a suburb of the city of Leeds, this stadium is also linked to a rugby league ground, home of The Leeds Rhinos. However, apart from all this, the venue has staged a total of 41 ODI matches. Out of this, 21 matches were won by Home side, 10 were won by touring side while the neutral side have come out to be victorious on 8 occasions.
