Pakistan vs England have a great potential to be one of the most exciting international games for fans of both teams. Both the English and Pakistani teams have recently experienced a bitter war in the Caribbean Islands. The two nations are known to be rivals for the Cricket World Cup title. Can either team come out on top in this historic rivalry?
This will be the first ever Test match between these two nations. Both teams have a lot of respect for each other and have also played several Tests against each other. However, expectations are quite low after such a long period of absence.
Cricket is not a very popular sport in Pakistan, so the audience is normally all but absent during this Test series. It is also not a big market for cricket, so the demand is very low. Cricket is also a religion in Pakistan, so many followers do not even know what the game is all about. Cricket matches are mostly played in the evenings, when the large number of Pakistani families are at home. The evening matches are usually very boring, as there are not many fans around at that time of the day.
The pitches in England are harder than the pitches in Pakistan, making them a difficult proposition for batsmen. Pakistan has a number of talented players, but they’re all rounders are much better. During this Test series, both sides should have no problems scoring runs due to the high quality of pitches. The only possible way for England to win this Test series would be if all their batsmen could score double-digit scores.
There are only three Tests left for Pakistan vs England, and they are scheduled to be played in the West Indies and South Africa. Each team has four batsmen with three extra outfield players. Pakistan has one great batsman in Ramadan Muhammad Karamchis, while England has none at all. Due to the inferior batting order, Pakistan have struggled throughout the Test series, but they have come very close in the last Test match.
If Pakistan wants to win this Test series, then they need to improve on their overall game management skills. They need to learn from the mistakes made in the first two Tests, and then carry these lessons into the next Test matches. If England can win this Test series 3-0, then they will go a long way to proving that they are the world’s number one team.
In the first Test match, Pakistan played with an uncharacteristically slow bowl pace to start the match. After going on the score card late in the second day, the England players realized that their performance had not been good enough. The defeat was a huge confidence boost for the English players, but it was just a small comfort to Pakistan fans. The defeat in this Test was the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Pakistan were out for the series; it seemed as if the dreams of the glorious century were over.
However, since this defeat, all has changed. Now, cricket fans can see a different side of the team to understand why they lost the first Test. It has also shown that cricket is far from becoming a monopoly game, as many have often thought. Cricket is the only sport in the world where two contrasting teams can both win and lose at once. Cricket fans now look at any situation objectively, realizing that there are many factors that can affect a match, and that a simple mix of skill and luck can lead to one team winning or losing a particular match.
