Although today's ODI between Pakistan and England is insignificant to most of the fans since England has already won the four ODI series by 3-0 and Pakistan lost vice a versa. Nevertheless, fans would like to see whether its is a whitewash or Pakistan still tries to win over the Englishmen as a last resort.
Although disappointed by the ODI series dismal performance, Pakistan coach Mohsin and captain Misbah looked determined to avoid a whitewash on Monday. Misbah is quoted as saying:
I will not take away any credit from England but we have to look at ourselves and we need to raise our standards in all three departments to defeat.
Eoin Morgan on the other hand is hopeful of a good opportunity to blank Pakistan.
"There's certainly an opportunity to do that. We do want to win 4-0 and if the opportunity arises we could give players (reserves) a bit of experience, but the priority is to win the game."
So let us see now what unfolds today at Dubai. But many speculate that Englishmen would carry the day as they are in a superb winning form and would not let this golden chance slip away of an ODI whitewash victory over Pakistan.
The match is being played at Dubai at 11:00 GMT.
