Pakistan are the receiving end of all the criticism currently after their Asia Cup debacle. They were extremely confident coming into the tournament and were touted as the favourites. But could only win against Hong Kong and Afghanistan in five matches and were eventually knocked out of the competition. Meanwhile, amidst all the criticism, England cricket’s official Facebook page has taken a cheeky dig at the Men in Green over their performance now.
Pakistan team is scheduled to tour England for five One-Day Internationals and a solitary T20I from May 5 to May 19. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has taken a clever step given that the World Cup is in the same country in the same month. Sarfraz Ahmed and his men though will have to be aware that they don’t lose the series as it is likely to affect their confidence much like it happened in the Asia Cup.
Sale of tickets started
England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) will start the sale of tickets for that series on October 10 and the same was informed by their official Facebook page. However, they shared the news in a different way and trolled Pakistan indirectly. They posted the video of England scoring a world record score of 481 against Australia and captioned it as, “Could we reach 500 one day? Tickets for games v Pakistan in 2019 go on sale 10 October at 10 am.”
Interestingly, England had earlier scored a massive total of 444 against Pakistan itself at Trent Bridge and the record was broken at the same venue a few months ago. The hosts will one try to pile on the agony and with the flat pitch on offer, there is every possibility that they will look to score 500 runs.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will be keen to respond to the critics and will be concentrating now on the upcoming Test series against Australia which will commence on October 7.
