England may be missing Eoin Morgan for the fourth ODI but Jos Buttler is expected to return as skipper, with Jofra Archer and Adil Rashid also back.
Jos Buttler is expected to return to England’s side as captain for Friday’s fourth one-day international against Pakistan in place of banned skipper Eoin Morgan (England 1/3, Pakistan 12/5 – Match Betting).
England recorded a six-wicket victory in Tuesday’s third ODI to take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series and another win at Trent Bridge on Friday would wrap up the series with a game to spare.
However, the hosts, who are 15/8 favourites to land the 2019 World Cup, will be without captain Morgan after he was banned for the fourth ODI due to a slow over-rate in Bristol.
Vice-captain Buttler, who was rested for the last outing, is expected to come in as a straight swap in the batting line-up and skipper the side in Nottingham.
The 28-year-old, who clubbed an unbeaten 110 in the 12-run victory in the second ODI, is 5/1 to be England’s top run scorer again while opener Jonny Bairstow, who hit a fantastic century in Bristol, is priced at 11/4 to score the most runs for his side.
Pace bowlers Mark Wood and Jofra Archer are both in line for a return and the latter, who is being tipped to make England’s World Cup squad, is joint 16/5 favourite, alongside Adil Rashid, to be England’s top wicket-taker.
Pakistan’s bowlers have struggled throughout the series so far and there may be a change or two with suggestions Shaheen Afridi, who was particularly out of sorts last time out, will be replaced by Mohammad Hasnain.
The 19-year-old paceman only made his ODI debut against Australia in March and is a massive 80/1 to end up as his side’s top wicket-taker in the fourth ODI.
Odds subject to change.
