Pakistan batsman Saud Shakeel is looking forward to the three-Test series against England as he is eager to go up against pace maestro James Anderson.
Anderson is the third-highest wicket-taker in Test cricket, but the most successful fast bowler of all time in the format.
Knowing how skilled the 40-year-old is, Shakeel said it “would be a dream fulfilled” if he got to make his Test debut during the series and put his skills to the test against Anderson.
“Obviously, he is a legend, and playing him would be a dream fulfilled. It will be a great honour if I get a chance to face him,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
The first Test between Pakistan and England starts on December 1.
