Pakistan left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz is confident that the national team can beat England in their upcoming limited overs series.
England have been in great form lately and Wahab admitted that defeating them “on their home soil is a very tough ask”.
But, Wahab noted that the men in green are capable of playing good cricket and thus stand a chance of emerging victorious.
“The England vs Pakistan series will be a good series – to beat England on their home soil is a very tough ask but our team has the capability to play good cricket and defeat England,” the 36-year-old, who was not picked for the series, was quoted as saying by PakPassion.
Pakistan will play three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against England. The ODI series will begin on July 8 and conclude on July 13, while the T20 series will be held from July 16 to 20.
