Saturday's ENG vs PAK live stream serves up what may turn out to be the most important game of the 2023 Cricket World Cup group stage. The Shaheens' unlikely last-gasp grab for the fourth and final knockout spot is, of course, the chief storyline, but the fate of no fewer than sevens teams rests on the outcome of the clash on November 11.
All the details for the ENG vs PAK streaming services in the US, UK and Australia are below. But don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on because you can watch ENG vs PAK live streams from anywhere with a VPN.
Babar Azam's men currently sit just outside the top four, two points worse off than the Kiwis, who have the superior NRR despite Fakhar Zaman's heroics with the bat last week. That means Pakistan must win and win big – by 287 runs, to be precise – in order to stand any chance of progressing to the semi-finals.
England, whose victory over the Netherlands was their first in nearly a month, are not just playing for pride but qualification for the 2025 Champions Trophy. They've never failed to make the grade before, but are now in a legitimate four-way battle with fellow strugglers Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and the Netherlands.
Ben Stokes' maiden World Cup century lifted the outgoing champions off the foot of the table in midweek, but with his knee in a bad way, England surely can't pin all of their hopes on their talisman doing yet another Superman impression.
