Pakistan’s dominant cricket commentator, Ramiz Raja, believes Pakistan can get dominancy over England’s side as the home siders will be inexperienced once pulling Ben Stokes and Joe Root out.
He says copying West Indies as they did in the first test against their hosts, Pakistan can have some cards to use against them.
Ramiz Raja: Pakistan can hold England’s inexperienced batting
“Take Stokes and Root out, then you are exposed to some inexperienced England’s batting line-up. If Pakistan replicates what West Indies did in the first Test with the bowl, they can do well,” he said.
The commentator believes in Pakistan’s bowling line-up and finds his side competitive than West Indies.
“One thing is sure, Pakistan will be more competent to England than West Indies following a solid bowling attack. If they bowl with the right line and length, they can overcome the English side,” he added.
Mentioning the veteran’s experiences, he says the players can learn a lot from them.
“This team management will help players a lot during the whole tour. Players will get to learn a lot from the likes of Misbah, Younis, Waqar, and Mushtaq,” he concluded.
