Green shirts reach Birmingham to play final ODI of series




The Pakistan cricket squad has arrived in Birmingham to play the last of the three-match ODI series with hosts England.

With England already having a decisive 2-0 lead in the series, the game at Edgbaston on July 13 is going to be a dead rubber.

The squad reached Birmingham on Sunday afternoon after which it underwent another round of COVID-19 testing.

The players had a rather relaxed evening as there wasn’t any training session scheduled for the day. Green shirts will be looking for a consolidating victory to avoid the series whitewash.

Pakistan has so far played 14 ODIs at Edgbaston. The green shirts have been victorious six times, while they have lost eight matches.

In the bilateral series, Pakistan and England have faced each other five times with England winning three of the match, while Pakistan being successful twice.

The very first match played at Edgbaston between Pakistan and England was back in 1974 which was also the 2nd and the final match of the limited-overs series between the two countries.—AFP
