Key battles: England v Pakistan
Marcus Trescothick v Wasim Akram
Trescothick hit his highest one-day score, 137, against Pakistan at Lord's in 2001. But England still lost the match by two runs.
Wasim is just two dismissals short of becoming the first bowler in cricket history to take 500 one-day wickets.
Trescothick averages 46.17 in six one-day internationals against Pakistan, almost 10 runs above his career average of 37.11.
Wasim has never dismissed Marcus Trescothick in a one-day international.
Trescothick has never played a one-day international at Newlands.
Newlands is not Wasim's favourite ground. In three matches, he has only taken three wickets at an average of 31.33, almost eight runs below his career average of 23.50.

Saleem Elahi v James Anderson
Elahi has a healthy average of 41.33 in four matches against England. His highest score is 58 not out in Lahore in 2000.
Anderson recorded his career best one-day figures of four for 25 in England's six-wicket victory over the Netherlands in East London.
In his only previous one-day international in Cape Town, Elahi was dismissed for a duck by South Africa's Shaun Pollock.
Anderson has only played 13 first class matches for his county Lancashire. He will make his 12th one-day international appearance for England at Newlands.
Elahi was Pakistan's top scorer in their 171-run victory over Namibia in Kimberely, hitting 63.
Anderson averages an impressive 24.56 with a strike rate of 30.44.
