    Babar and Shaheen will be crucial for our wins.

    We have too many passengers in our team. 2-1 to England. If Babar, Naseem and Shaheen have an exceptional series, then it might flip in Pakistan's favor.

    as a neutral indian fan my take is 2-1 to Eng or 1-1 with a rain affected draw....Sorry pak fans...i am basing this on pure ability, eng's superiority(albeit marginal as you have a fantastic pace attack as well)on their home soil and conditions , i also feel yassir (under rated) will be a factor in one test on a wearing wicket where your quicks will get it to reverse better than eng....
    All in all an exciting series beckons....hope to see a real display of skills...fed up of no action....bring on the red ball cricket that matters (with masks ...eh?

    I think England should win 2-1 because they are the home side. They drew with Aussies 2-2 at home.

    If series was in Pakistan/UAE, Pakistan should've whitewashed England.

    Gotta expect shaheen to blow over the top 3 if we win the toss have to bowl first unless it's a belter.

    One or 2 good scores from the Pakistan top order could do the job for the visitors so lets not write off Azhar Ali and men.

    "I am confident we have the players to not only compete but also win the series" : Mushtaq Ahmed



    Former Test wrist spinner Mushtaq Ahmed, who is the spin bowling coach and team mentor for the England tour, is content with the Pakistan men’s national cricket team’s ongoing preparations and believes that players will need to inspire each other in the absence of spectators to bring out best results.

    “This tour is being played in extraordinary circumstances,” Mushtaq said, “There are no spectators, there are hardly any journalists either to analyse the teams or the game. Players need to inspire each other, back each other and support each other to the hilt.

    “I am happy with the start we have made; we are getting accustomed to the environment and conditions and still have a long time to go before the start of the series.”

    Pakistan are currently quarantining in a bio-secure environment at the Worcester’s New Road Ground, where they have been preparing for the three-match Test series against England, which commences on 5 August.

    During the quarantine period, the players are undergoing fitness training, net practice, fielding sessions and intra-squad matches under the supervision of a high-profile coaching staff led by head coach Misbah-ul-Haq.

    Bowling coach Waqar Younis and batting coach Younis Khan are working hard on the players in their respective domains while the reins of spin bowling coaching are in the hands Mushtaq.

    The 50-year-old Mushtaq has worked around the world with leading international teams and T20 franchises in a coaching/mentor capacity while he was also a part of the team management during the absorbing 2016 series in England, which Pakistan drew 2-2 under Misbah’s captaincy.

    Mushtaq has rich experience of bowling in English conditions. He toured twice with Pakistan’s Test squad in 1992 and 1996 and bowled some match winning spells especially in the three-match 1996 series that Pakistan won 2-0.

    In eight Tests in England, Mushtaq collected 32 wickets at 28.81; the 1996 series remained one of the highlights of Mushtaq’s 14-year-long international career span. He took 17 wickets in the series and was named Pakistan’s man-of-the-series, Pakistan’s wins at Lord’s and Oval were largely due to Mushtaq’s match winning spells in the second innings on the final days of both Tests.

    He took five wickets for 57 runs in 38 incisive overs at Lord’s before claiming six for 78 on the fifth and final day at Oval in a 37-over spell. He was named man-of-the-match in the Oval Test.

    Mushtaq also enjoyed stunning success with his county Sussex leading them to three county titles in a five-year span starting from 2003; Mushtaq took 103 wickets in 2003, 102 in 2006 and 90 in the 2007 season. Sussex were crowned county champions in these three seasons.

    Mushtaq fully understands his role with the national men’s team this time around and the unique circumstances have not deterred him as he is as focused as ever.

    “Despite the Covid-19 related challenges, the players have been exceptional so far,” he said. “We are trying to make them familiar with the protocols and they have responded wonderfully well. Players are coping with the new regulations with regards to shining the ball as well.

    “Historically, spinners have used saliva to shine the ball now they are being taught new methods in lieu of the revised ICC rules and regulations.

    “What makes me really happy is that the players and support staff are working together on team goals and objectives and I am sure in due course the players will be fully aware and ready for the new challenges as we prepare for what is expected to be a tough series against a strong English team in their own backyard.

    “I am confident we have the players that can not only compete but also win the series.”

    England are clearly the better team in every regard; batting, bowling, fielding - and by significant margins. I expect them to easily win at least 2 matches, perhaps by innings+ margins.

    That said, Pakistan have some great individual talent, namely Babar, Shaheen and Naseem. If 1 or 2 of them can have a big performance, Pakistan have the potential to squeeze out a win.

    In short, I expect a rerun of the WI series

    Pakistan need to win the 1st Test or atleast draw it.

    If they lose the first, they can easily lose the series by a 3-0 margin

    I'm hoping Babar leads the charge and brings it home at 3-0. In reality, there's too many liabilities in this team so could be the opposite or 2-0 if rain comes to the rescue in one of the test matches.

    Unless it rains for most part of last two days, all three Test will end in direct W/L. Honestly speaking, in that case, I donít see how PAK can save 3-0; if they can itíll be praise worthy.

    This WIN series has helped England to finalise their playing XI, therefore PAK will face the possible strongest Pom XI. Besides, from the edge of being dropped, Butler has saved his Test career and heíll torture PAK. PAK has been robbed by attacking batsmen over the years because these batsmen keep slashing PAK pacers (who doesnít know how to bowl negative line-length) and fielders keep dropping them. Sehwag, Sanath, Warner, Gilchrist, Symonds, .... I am afraid this Butler guy will do considerable damage with the tail. Up front Burns, Pope, Stokes are in fantastic form, Root can join them - suddenly England batting is looking quite strong.

    In terms of bowling, finally England has got their combination right - and all three seemers have better stats against PAK than their career average; in UK itís even better. While, Archer wasnít that successful against WIN, but heíll trouble PAK batting lot with his lifter. PAKís catching has been better in recent days with Asad being a very safe hand at slips; but still England has better cordon; PAKís only advantage is that both WKs are much better gloves man than Butler.

    In terms of captaincy, Root is a massive improvement over Azhar.

    In all four aspects, England is well ahead & they are the hosts.

PAK has been robbed by attacking batsmen over the years because these batsmen keep slashing PAK pacers (who doesnít know how to bowl negative line-length) and fielders keep dropping them. Sehwag, Sanath, Warner, Gilchrist, Symonds, .... I am afraid this Butler guy will do considerable damage with the tail. Up front Burns, Pope, Stokes are in fantastic form, Root can join them - suddenly England batting is looking quite strong.

    In terms of bowling, finally England has got their combination right - and all three seemers have better stats against PAK than their career average; in UK itís even better. While, Archer wasnít that successful against WIN, but heíll trouble PAK batting lot with his lifter. PAKís catching has been better in recent days with Asad being a very safe hand at slips; but still England has better cordon; PAKís only advantage is that both WKs are much better gloves man than Butler.

    In terms of captaincy, Root is a massive improvement over Azhar.

    In all four aspects, England is well ahead & they are the hosts.
    England have failed to whitewash any of the top 8 at home in their most recent home series against any of the top 8.

    That makes it really challenging for PAK - they simply canít get white washed by England. It will be quite shameful for PAK & PakPassion if it happens and this series is played in second half of summer with the English team not playing regular County game - absolutely no excuses.

    Same applies to both teams, pakistan have not played any competitive cricket for a while.

    England are a strong side at home in general, only a few years back they blitzed India 4-1 here.

    Actually itís not similar. Every other years, travelling teams go to UK after their season (Oct-April, domestic cricket in norther hemisphere summer is played only in UK and Srilanka), while English players play first Test after two months into their domestic season starting from April. This year, England is very similar to both touring sides, or may be three Tests more acclimatised than PAK.

    Bowlers win you test matches even when batsman don't score well,seeing Pak pace attack which doesn't have experience and experience is the key because of stuff like playing international cricket after 4 or 5 moths,in such situations experience holds the key which Pak don't have in their bowling, a 2-1 to England

    2 to 1 to England due to their superior bowling for home conditions and better all round and tail end batting. Also England go into the series having played 3 tests and ODIs, in good rhythm.

    Whole batting unit is pathetic apart from Babar and Rizwan to an extent and bowlers (shaheen and Naseem) will do well Yasir is awful and Abbas won't be effective with his 125ks.All in all I really hope they don't lose 3-0. I would be happy with either 2-0 or 2-1.

    a 3-0 loss to pak will be a very poor and pathetic performance, a 2-1 loss will be a competitive & sufficient, a 1-1 draw very good and 2-1 win will be brilliant and excellent performance by Pak

    I predict PAK to be competitive and loss the series by 2-1

    Yep. In fact, the last time England whitewashed a team at home was in 2011 when they beat India 4-0. They also beat NZ 2-0 in 2013 but I don't consider 2 match series a white wash.

    Very good - batsmen have to add around 250 with this Day 1 score to ensure that. PAK already is in driving seat but that lower half can spoil it tomorrow morning.

    Pakistan can be whitewashed if we lose the first Test vs England

    I believe we will be mentally really down and won't be able to get back up if we squander today.

    I hope boys are up for it as the fate of rest of the next two games hang on today/tommorow result.

    What are your expectations from this Pakistan team in the next two Tests?

    For me, these kind of defeats take a toll and I have totally lost any hope and expectation from this current team. What is the current state of the rest of fans in this forum? Will you all watch the remaining matches with same passion? For me, I will try my best to ignore and keep myself busy in other works although it is extremely hard :p.

    If we win the series it will be one of the great achievement ever for Pak cricket, as it will mean that we pretty much had to white wash England.
