England series ‘crucial’ for Pakistan’s T20 World Cup charge

The four-match T20I series between Pakistan and England kicks off on May 22nd, serving as a crucial warm-up for both teams before the T20 World Cup.

Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has called the upcoming four-match T20 series against England a critical stepping stone in their preparation for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan sharpening up for T20 World Cup

Speaking at a press conference before the series opener, Imad Wasim emphasized the importance of this series in finalizing the Pakistan Cricket Team for the World Cup and building momentum.

He believes a strong showing against a high-profile opponent like England can translate into positive results in the global tournament. “Success here can carry us forward positively into the World Cup,” he stated.

Thumbs up for Pakistan Management

Imad commended the Pakistan Cricket Board’s medical team for their effective management of player workloads throughout the season, particularly since the home series against New Zealand. He confirmed that all players are fit and ready for the England challenge.

Pakistan Cricket Team learning from setbacks

Reflecting on recent performances, Imad admitted that Pakistan fell short of their potential against New Zealand and in the opening game against Ireland. However, he vowed that the team is determined to avoid complacency moving forward.

We played with our full strength side and obviously, if we lost (against New Zealand), we did not play good cricket,” he said. He highlighted the importance of learning from these setbacks, which can provide valuable insights for the World Cup.

It gives you an idea of how to approach (the World Cup) and we cannot relax even one per cent,” he emphasized. He pointed out a tendency for the team to become complacent after victories, and stressed the importance of maintaining consistent intensity throughout the England series and beyond.
