England tour of Pakistan

PAK vs ENG, 1st T20I 



Pakistan will host England in a seven-match T20I series starting on 20th September 2022. The 1st match of this series will be played at the National Stadium in Karachi. Pakistan will face England after being the runners-up in the Asia T20 Series. The team’s key batters keeping in mind their current form seem to be Shan Masood and Mohammad Rizwan. Captain Babar Azam is not in a great tough but it’s a good chance for him to make his comeback before the World T20 Series. The bowling department will be led by Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf who are in the form of their life. Also, Mohammad Wasim Jr will get introduced to the T20I side. 

On the other side, England has lost their last T20I series against South Africa but will surely look forward to a better performance. Unfortunately, the visitors will miss the services of Jos Buttler, who is injured. In his absence, Moeen Ali will lead the Three Lions. They still have a very impressive line-up with skilled all-rounders like David Willey and Sam Curran to their line-up. Their bowling pack has the presence of Adil Rashid and Reece Topley as their key bowlers.
