England are preparing well for their Test series against Pakistan for which they have arrived as well.
Both teams have started their practice sessions as well side-by-side and head coach Brendon McCullum is hopeful of giving an entertaining show to the fans.
McCullum has stated that England will continue with their attacking brand of cricket and hopefully they will feel a greater sense of accomplishment when they win the series against Pakistan.
In the press conference, McCullum said,
To win away from home is the greatest accomplishment you can achieve as a Test player and as a Test side.
Adding further, he says,
We understand the size of the challenge in front of us. But that’s great- that’s why you want to play the game. You don’t want easy challenges, you want to take on the best in their own conditions and you want to try and test where you’re at as a side. I’m really excited. I don’t know if we’re going to win the series. I can almost guarantee that when the skipper comes in here in 48 hours time he’ll say there’ll be no draws in the series.
The three venues- Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Multan are going to be sellouts for this series.
McCullum wants the crowds to have a fine time in Pakistan.
The boys have already said they’re pretty excited about playing in front of a full house here, it’s going to be a good atmosphere, so they’re really excited. That’s what we want from red-ball cricket all around the world, stadiums packed out and fans getting behind their local team.
Both sides were seen training at the Rawalpindi Cricket Ground on Monday. England’s Mark Wood did not participate in the session because of a hip injury.
