England vs Pakistan: Jos Buttler to play 2nd T20I, confirms ENG Coach


The series between England and Pakistan is becoming interesting due to the off-field comments. The Pakistan team lost the ODI series to a second-string team and the former players like Shoaib Akhtar and Ramiz Raja lashed out on Youtube regarding lathargic performance by the team. But, they won the 1st T20I and beat the strong England squad. The team’s T20 form has been fine and the PSL has certainly benefitted almost all the players.
