Pakistan are all set to host England in a seven-match T20I series, starting on Tuesday at the iconic National Stadium in Karachi. The long series will definitely come in handy regarding the preparation for both sides ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
The Men Green had a memorable campaign in the recently-concluded Asia Cup, where they lost to Sri Lanka in the final. Though, all eyes would be on skipper Babar Azam, who struggled in the entire Asia Cup with a string of low scores.
England, on the other hand, will be paying more attention as they are heading into this tour, having lost successive home T20I series against India and South Africa.
The track at Karachi offers good support to batters, therefore, fans can expect a high-scoring contest. The dew factor will likely make its impact, so chasing here is an ideal option after winning the toss.
