Pakistan’s former spinner Saeed Ajmal is unsure of Pakistan winning in England, and feels it will be a ‘miracle’ even if they win a single match during their tour. Pakistan have already landed in England and are putting up in a bio-secure environment.
Between August 5 and September 1, the three Tests and three T20s are scheduled to be played between two countries, but Saeed Ajmal feels since most of the players are young and inexperienced, it will be difficult for the team to defeat the hosts on their own home ground.
“Pakistan team consists of young players; the England series will be difficult for them. It does not seem possible for Pakistan to win the series. It would be a miracle, if Pakistan even wins one match. As a Pakistani, I pray that the national team performs well in the series,” Ajmal was quoted as saying by Ary Sports.
The first Test will take place in Manchester from August 5 followed by the second and third Tests at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. From August 28, the T20Is will take place with all three being held at the Old Trafford cricket stadium in Manchester.
Pakistan, currently placed seventh in the ICC Test teams are coming off a 1-0 series win against Sri Lanka and an innings win against Afghanistan earlier this year. However, the last Test project overseas was the tour of Australia late last year where Pakistan were clean swept 0-2.
Currently, the Englishmen are hosting West Indies for a three-Test series, where the visitors won the first Test match. The second Test is to be held on July 16 at Manchester.
