Pakistan enjoyed their last major success in the 2017 Champions Trophy with their run in the 2019 World Cup being questionable. After a halt in the cricket season due to novel coronavirus pandemic, Pakistan are likely to resume their international affair with a tour to England, for which they have already met the ‘principle’ agreement.

Pakistan’s tour to England is slated to get underway with the three-Test series starting from July 30. It will be followed by as many matches in the Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) starting from August 29 with the series concluding on September 2.

“We want to regain our top position in T20s. I want to see Pakistan among the top three ranked sides in all formats. My personal goal is to perform well and improve my ranking as a bowler and as an all-rounder. But winning the series is more important because England is one of the world’s best sides,” Imad Wasim was quoted as saying by the Dawn.

Wasim averages over 41 in the ODIs and has notched up five half-centuries in the format.
