Pitch report: Overcast conditions in London have always favored the fast bowlers making the toss a huge factor. The team winning the toss will most likely bowl first to exploit the seaming conditions. Both teams have quality pacers in their ranks in the form of Jofra Archer, Mitchelle Starc, Chris Woakes, and Patt Cummins.
