England will look forward to continuing winning their test after beating Sri Lanka 2-0 ultimately in a longer format. Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow were the limelight stars for their team England. And expect the same performance from their team in home ground, especially.
Alastair Cook peers forward to make a fresh start and keep his performance constant. He has accomplished 10,000 runs up till now in test matches. Then we have James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steve Finn will surely handle all the trouble in pace department, at least the team has high hopes for them and so their fans.
Whereas Pakistani team is concerned, new talent in the team has a tremendous chance to make marks in the history and prove themselves. Talk about consistency, Misbah UL Haq and Younis Khan have the wheel as they the most senior and experienced players in the team right now and obviously under pressure because a lot of trust and expectations are kept in their faith.
