Rain Spoils England and Pakistan’s World Cup Preparations

No Chance to Test Archer or Rauf Before Final Squad Decision on Saturday , We hope weather give permission both bowler to show their strength in England vs Pakistan Second T20 Clash 2024


England vs Pakistan – Match Abandoned

The first T20I match between England and Pakistan was canceled due to heavy rain in Leeds. The persistent downpour flooded the ground, making it unplayable. The umpires quickly decided to call off the match after inspecting the conditions.

This match was important for both teams to finalize their squads for the T20 World Cup. With the squad announcement deadline on Saturday, England missed the chance to see Jofra Archer play. Although they can make injury-related changes after May 25, they must decide on Archer without seeing him in action.

Jos Buttler, England’s captain, shared his frustration with Sky Sports, saying, “We were all excited for the series after some good practice days. It’s disappointing not to play today, but we still have three matches to look forward to.”

Buttler also talked about the unique preparation for the World Cup in the Caribbean and the USA next month, especially for players involved in the IPL playoffs. He emphasized the importance of having the team together for this series and said that international cricket should not clash with the IPL.

“Currently, my primary goal is to serve as the England captain and get ready for the World Cup.” I’ve always told Rob Key [Director of Cricket] that I’d come back as England captain,” Buttler added.

Meanwhile, Pakistan is the only team among the 20 World Cup participants that hasn’t announced its provisional squad. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) planned to finalize their squad after this game, but the weather prevented them from evaluating their players. Hasan Ali was released from the squad earlier to play for Warwickshire.

Both teams will now play three more games before heading to the World Cup – in Birmingham on Saturday, Cardiff on Tuesday, and London on Thursday.
