Pakistan and England will play the 3rd Test of England’s tour in Karachi.
Pakistan has lost their past three home tests this year, one against Australia in March and two against England. They’ve lost the series and are nearly eliminated from World Test Championship 2023 qualification. The hosts want to end the series on a good note for their fans.
Ben Stokes and Brandon McCullum have only lost one Test under England’s Bazball method. They play bold, aggressive cricket and aren’t afraid to lose. Both games they won by 74 and 26 runs. England will now try to sweep the hosts.
