Aqib Javed said that England can win series 0-3 against Pakistan.
The former national team fast bowler and head coach of Pakistan Super League franchise Lahore Qalandars have said that the series against West Indies and Pakistan against England is very important for the revival of international cricket and also for matches of other boards. There will be an encouragement to hold.
“It’s very unfortunate that we haven’t seen any cricket in the last three months due to the coronavirus, but it’s a great development that the West Indies and England have arrived and we’ve all played Test cricket in England as well,” the former cricketer said. You will also be able to watch T20 cricket.
Aqib Javed said that despite the selection of 29 players for the tour of England, Pakistan’s squad looks inexperienced and England can win the series 0-3 against Pakistan.
“Pakistan played well in the last two-Test series in England and we managed to draw the Test series but in the last one to two years England have really improved their game and the way they play cricket in all three formats,” he said. Playing is highly commendable.
He said that Pakistan will have to struggle in England as their line-up is very standard, they have James Anderson, Stuart Broad, and Joffra Archer as well as all-rounder Ben Stokes and they have an excellent line-up. is also.
The member of the 1992 World Cup team added that England batsmen not only score big but also very fast and this is where Pakistan lacks because we are still playing in the old style.
“Even if Pakistan plays 125 overs, we will not be able to score more runs than England who score big runs in the same number of overs and then take the opposition out of the game.”
Supporting former national team captain Mohammad Abbas’s position, Aqib expressed doubts about Mohammad Abbas’s ability, saying his pace had slowed down and might not be as effective as he was last year.
“If you look at Pakistan’s fast bowling attack, it lacks experience and quality. Abbas is an experienced bowler but he has lost his momentum and this has affected his performance,” he said.
The former fast bowler said that the ban on polishing the ball with saliva would also affect the performance of Pakistani players as most Pakistani bowlers rely on the reverse swing and take wickets from the old ball.
He said that Shaheen Shah Afridi is an emerging fast bowler and he can perform well but Naseem Shah lacks experience and this series will be a big test for the young fast bowler.
“Yasir has performed all over the world but his form has been declining over the last two years but I still feel that his performance will be very important for this series,” Aqib said.
Referring to the talented Haris Rauf, Aqib Javed said that if given a chance, he could perform well in Test matches as he would have the ability to destroy the batting line with his speed considering the ban on saliva. And they have the aggression to surprise England.
He said that Harris Rauf did well in grade cricket in Australia and later played first-class matches, so he is capable of doing well in Test matches.
When he was reminded that Haris Rauf failed in the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League, Aqib Javed said that the fast bowler participated in PSL despite his injury because he wanted Qalandars to be good for Qalandars in Pakistan Super League. Show performance but they were not fit and could not perform well.
Aqib said that Pakistan Cricket Board should hold the remaining matches of PSL Five and the winner should be decided after the match.
He said that PSL should be completed, Pakistan Cricket Board should try to hold matches in the country or in UAE as the winner should be decided through competition, I hope PCB lives He will be able to find a suitable window for the rest of the matches in November this year.
