England has had its good share of historic events recently, and the trend will keep going when the male’s national cricket team visits Pakistan for the first time since 2005. The opening match of seven Twenty20 Internationals takes place on Tuesday in Karachi, with England playing a green shirts squad that lost by five wickets to Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup final earlier this month.
England Vs Pakistan T20 Series:
A sell-out crowd of 35,000 is expected to witness the event, and English vice-captain Moeen Ali feels “proud” to be leading his team against his home nation, with regular captain Jos Buttler out with a calf injury.
Both nations will be seeking to prepare for the T20 Cricket World Cup by doing well in this series. England has won four and drawn one of their past five men’s T20Is against Pakistani team at home.
Moeen Ali Captaincy 1st Press Conference:
“Being captain is a huge honour, regardless matter who you’re up against,” he stated during a press conference. “But to do it in Pakistan, returning back after such a long time… and to have relatives who moved from here back in the day, it’s incredible to lead the England team. It’s fantastic.” I want to play cricket from every country that has a cricket team. I’ve always wanted to see my birth country and Zimbabwe. It’s incredible that we’ve made it this far. England’s visit to Pakistan is significant.
