Legendary Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq revealed that he will do everything in his capability to help Pakistan prep up for their tour of England, to be played in August-September. Mushtaq, who is an ex-England spin coach and the current Head of International Player Development at the High-Performance Centre in Pakistan vowed to share his knowledge of the England players with the Pakistan team ahead of their highly-anticipated series.
While some may feel that this is an unfair tactic, the 43-year-old noted that he used to share details about the Pakistan team when he worked with England.
“I will share my knowledge of the current England players with the Pakistan team. This is the beauty of the game. I was completely sincere with them, when I was working with the side. I used to tell them everything I knew about the Pakistan side back then,” Saqlain was quoted as saying.
Earlier, Mushtaq also said that in the absence of spectators, players will have to inspire each other in the upcoming series against England, to be held in a bio-secure environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests and three T20 Internationals against England, with the first Test starting on August 5 at Old Trafford in Manchester and the T20 series beginning on August 28 at the same venue.
