Pakistan toured England in teeth of pandemic and now is time to reciprocate as generation of players visit for first time
Jos Buttler does not recall much about England’s last trip to Pakistan. It was in 2005 and he was a teenager playing for Somerset Under-15s. He could tell you plenty about England’s win in the Ashes that summer – “probably the best series ever” – but he knows only fragments of the tour that followed it.
There are highlight-package snatches of Mohammad Yousuf’s implacable batting, Danish Kaneria’s sly grin as he schemed over his next delivery, and Shoaib Akhtar’s fringe flapping like a crow’s wings as he celebrated defeating another of England’s batsmen who, hapless and baffled, collapsed twice as they lost the Test series two-nil.
