England’s cricket team has reached Pakistan for the first time in almost 17 years to take on the home side in seven T20 internationals. Pakistan and England will play the first T20I of the seven-match series on September 20. The match will start at 7:30 pm (PST). “We are very excited to be here (in Pakistan). It’s great to be back as an England team after a long time” he said.
Speaking during his first media interaction in Pakistan, Buttler stated, “Seven games will be a challenge. We will certainly try to manage our squad and look after them as we do not want to take undue risk.”
Talking about the Pakistan team’s strength, England’s captain said that Pakistan had the tradition of producing excellent fast bowlers who could bowl with ‘high pace’ and ‘high skills.’
“There are plenty of match winners in both teams and that’s what you need in T20 cricket” he maintained.
Donations For The Flood Victims:
England captain Jos Buttler pledged donations for the flood victims in Pakistan. He hoped to bring joy to the people affected by the disaster through good cricket. Buttler was aware of the flood situations in Pakistan and wanted to unite the people in these tough times.
“As a team, we are making donations which will be matched by the ECB as well to help the people in need at the moment” he announced.
Moreover, he revealed that England players who had participated in the Pakistan Super League had positive experiences in the country.
“Plenty of our players have been playing PSL and share positive experiences about being here and how much the public love cricket here,” he said.
England captain also added that he would benefit from the experience of those teammates who had played in PSL since he has never been to Pakistan before and had no idea about the playing conditions in the country.
