Pakistan cricket team has already landed in England almost a month prior to the start to the first of the four test matches between the two teams. This series is currently getting a lot of hype and has become the talk of the town now.
Pakistan is scheduled to play 4 test matches, 5 Odis and a single t20 game against England. In between this series right before the start of the Odis, Pakistan will travel to Ireland and play two Odis before returning back to England.
Last time Pakistan made a tour to England was in 2010 and the tourists lost the four match test series 3-1. Also the controversy related to spot fixing also overshadowed the whole tour. Amir is still part of the Pakistan team and he is the player to watch out for.
Pakistan team will have two warm up games before the start of the series against Somerset and Sussex. There will be a third warm up game played, but only after the second test against Worcestershire.
It will be a long tour for the Pakistan team, but at the same time it can write history for them. Misbah and his men are ready to take the challenge to the fathers of cricket.
