After almost 17 years of wait, England have travelled to Pakistan to play a T20I series which will be played in two legs. First, the four games will take place in Karachi and then the last 3 will be played in Lahore. The England tour of Pakistan will resume later in December for 3 Test matches as well. Missing key players like Liam Livingstone and Chris Jordan, England are a bit short-handed as per their habits but stll have plenty of firepower with skipper Jos Buttler, Mark Wood, CHris Woakes and Reece Topley are also not available for the Karachi leg. Stand-in skipper Moeen Ali will lead the side with Alex Hales, who’s returning after 3 years with Dawid Malan also available.
Pakistan have a few injury woes of their own along with some tension following their skipper Babar Azam’s form. The right-hander who’s always recognised for his excellent batting skills only scored 68 runs in the Asia Cup 2022.
