Following on from Friday’s ODI against the Irish, England now have a T20 against Pakistan before a ODI series.
This T20 is really just a warm-up for not just that ODI series, but also for the Cricket World Cup which starts later this month. In the last world cup, Pakistan lost to Australia, the nation that won and also hosted the last tournament. Pakistan’s last ODI series was also against the Aussies, and the lost all five games.
England meanwhile failed to get beyond the group stage in the last World Cup. In more recent months however, England appear to be the stronger side and will have home advantage.
England v Pakistan is on Sky Main Event and Sky Cricket at 14.00 (match starts 14.30).
