Pakistan and England cricket teams play first T 20 match in Dubai

DUBAI: Pakistan and England play first T-20 Match today. Pakistan and England might have won their warm up T20 matches quite easily against Hong Kong and United Arab Emirates respectively, but both the nations are aware that the upcoming three-match T20 series starting in Dubai is going to be very competitive. Pakistan will be eager to defeat England after their below par showing in the ODI series, which they lost 1-3 after clinching the first ODI. Pakistan, who will be led by their ever charismatic T20 skipper, Shahid Afridi, will ask his players to give it their all and provide a perfect start in the T20 series. The men in green are not short of quality players in their squad as they have experienced players such as Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal alongside Afridi, who needs to deliver in the T20 series. England, on the other hand, will depend on the services of their skipper, Eoin Morgan, who is one of the most dangerous batsmen in world cricket, Alex Hales, Joe Root and Chris Woakes. Irrespective of the form both the teams may have been of late, it is going to be a completely different ball game in Dubai, where both the teams have to come fresh, all guns blazing in the first T20.
