Pakistan lost the three-Test series against England by a 1-0 margin. The side were outclassed by the home team as they failed to make the most of their opportunities. Pakistan are next set to play three-T20Is against England and will be hoping to come up with a much better performance.
However, former England captain turned cricket pundit Michael Vaughan believes that Pakistan can become a tough team in the next two three years. Vaughan also added that Pakistan have their bases covered and will give a hard fight to all the other teams across the globe.
“I think Pakistan are a side, which over the next two to three years, are going to compete against everyone as they have got pretty much everything covered,” Vaughan said while talking to Cricbuzz.
“They might have lost the series. They should have won it, especially when you think back to Manchester. But they are a side who are on the up in Test match cricket,” he said.
Pakistan have fine growing fast bowlers like Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah in their ranks. They have the potential but the youngsters failed to produced the desired result in England due to lack of experience.
Batting for Pakistan has been largely dependent on Babar Azam. Shan Masood showed spark early but failed to get going later in the Test series against England. Test captain Azhar Ali, on the other hand, played only to his capabilities in the final match.
