England travelled to Pakistan on September 15 after 17 long years for a bilateral series.The T20I series comprises seven matches which will serve as an opportune occasion for both the teams to get their playing eleven established for the much awaited ICC T20 World Cup 2022 later in October. In the opening match of the series thus far, Pakistani middle-order batting failed to live up to expectations and thus as needed selectors might grant other batters like Asif Ali from the squad, an opportunity to play in next matches. Babar Azam’s form has been a hot topic as well since the Asia Cup concluded and it will be great to see if he revives his old form. England had a decent outing in both batting and bowling in the first match.
