Southampton, August 20
Back within the spring, when the coronavirus pandemic was at its most dangerous in Britain, there was a real concern that the England cricket crew won’t play a global sport in 2020.
So, after a packed summer time of Test matches, to be able the place England’s aspect is one victory away from clinching back-to-back sequence wins fills captain Joe Root with a way of satisfaction.
His message, subsequently, was fairly easy as he addressed the crew right this moment on the eve of the third and last Test towards Pakistan on the Rose Bowl. Enjoy it, and cherish it.
“We don’t know the next time we will play Test cricket,” Root mentioned. “So let’s make sure we throw everything into this week. Make sure we leave no stone unturned and give everything to each other and the badge.”
England got here from behind to beat West Indies 2-1 in what proved to be an exciting Test sequence in July. Against Pakistan, England lead 1-Zero after a victory within the first Test in Manchester was adopted by a draw within the second match right here. — AP
