Joe Root Shows Interest to Play cricket in Pakistan
England Test captain Joe Root shows interest to play cricket in Pakistan. According to the ICC schedule, England is scheduled to play a three-match Test series in Pakistan by the end of 2022. That series is being discussed more now. Behind which Pakistan is currently on a tour of England in Corona.
That is why the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and many former players of that country have thought that the England team should visit Pakistan in 2022. However, England coach Chris Silverwood has already expressed interest in visiting Pakistan. This time English captain Root joined the list. “I want to visit Pakistan,” he said. But everything depends on the decision of the board.
World cricket has been suspended since March this year due to Corona. Finally, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) hosted a three-match Test series against the West Indies on July 6. England also played a three-match ODI series against Ireland after a Test match against the West Indies. Now playing a three-match Test series with Pakistan.
However, former captain Wasim Akram has recently commented that the ECB will be indebted to Pakistan for agreeing to the offer of a tour of England. He said, ‘Pakistan visited England in the midst of the epidemic. England should also visit Pakistan.
However, England team leader Root gave a positive signal about the Pakistan tour. “I would love to visit Pakistan,” he said. Being able to play there is a great opportunity. But unfortunately, it is not my responsibility to decide on this, it will be decided by the board. But I think Pakistan is a great place to travel and play. ‘
England did not tour Pakistan after the 2005-06 season. In 2009, Pakistani militants carried out a terrorist attack on a bus carrying a visiting Sri Lankan team. Since then, the world’s Test-playing nations have stopped touring Pakistan. England has not visited Pakistan for 15 years. So naturally, the route was never visited in Pakistan. Because Root made his debut in international cricket in 2012. That is why the route has a special interest in visiting Pakistan.
“I have never been to Pakistan,” he said. Seeing the wickets there, it looks good, batting is useful. I have heard from many. It would be nice to be able to play on a different wicket than I do in the conditions here. Pakistani spectators are cricket crazy. When the national team plays, the field is full of spectators.
Pakistani militants carried out terrorist attacks on Sri Lankan players. That Sri Lanka visited Pakistan in October last year. Root has done a lot of research on that tour of Sri Lanka. He said, “Pakistan visited Sri Lanka last year and everyone felt their passion for cricket. Besides, I have talked to some players and they are happy to play in Pakistan again.
