Green shirts; Pakistan team is going to play against England to save pride in Leeds today on Sep 1. A number of changes are expected after massive defeat in the previous match. Pakistan will get enough with respect to getting their game up in testing conditions. It will not be easy for what is a young team. They will have plenty of chances on the tour in terms of getting accustomed to English conditions.
Earlier Green shirts on Wednesday reached Yorkshire County’s home ground Headingly Leeds where the Pakistan team attended a practice session ahead of 4th ODI to be played against England Today.
England had beaten Pakistan in third ODI, taking an unassailable lead of 3-0 in five-match series. Final ODI between both the team would be played at Cardiff on Sunday.
It was a long tour where we have 4 test matches, 5 ODIs and a T20. Green shirts will get enough with respect to getting their game up in testing conditions. It will not be easy for what is a young team.
They will have plenty of chances on the tour in terms of getting familiarized to English conditions.
Green shirts will have to swing it with the bat. That is the only way they can be in the game against a canny English team and to save the countries pride.
England really need not do anything fancy. They just need to be themselves. They have the batters and the bowlers and they just need to stay true to form.
Green shirts always like to throw a cat among the pigeons and this tour is their chance. But to be fair, it is going to mighty tough for them, much like “Sri Lanka” found themselves in England recently. We are of course talking England here. So it will not be as if Pakistan will feel the heat in the kitchen. But it will be tough nevertheless. They need to make most of the opportunities and do something that no one expects. Luck favors the brave. Can the underdogs be a conquest? Time will tell us.
