Pakistanis are having an edge due to the surplus amount of practice done lately during the Pakistan Super League (PSL 6) for the limited-over cricket. On the other hand, England may suffer heavy blows for missing out on the big names due to COVID-19 positive cases.
The shocking news arrived today that must have brought ‘ease charms’ for the men in green to listen as they can have a better chance to win or even seal the series. The English team can also have an opportunity to test distinct names in the ODI format.
