England pacer Stuart Broad has said that Pakistani bowlers will pose a serious threat to English batsmen when the two sides meet in the upcoming four-Test series. But at the same time, he warned that the bowling a wrong line can make life difficult for the pacers.
“England can be a very very good place to bowl but also if you get it wrong you can go … and generally the real pace bowlers have struggled with their records in England – the likes of Brett Lee, the guys who might miss their length now and again,” he said.

“But I think Pakistan will pose a pretty dangerous threat because they are very skillful.”

Along with Sri Lanka, Pakistan  are the only Test side to have won their most recent series against Alastair Cook’s team. With Sri Lanka already defeated 2-0 in the recently concluded Test series, England would be determined to set records straight against Pakistan after losing to them in their last two series played in the UAE in 2012 and last year. However, in English conditions, Pakistan’s record is not very impressive. The tourists have won  nine Tests in England but only twice since 2000.

“They’ve got some world-class players,” Broad said of the Pakistan side.

The English pacer also said that Pakistan has a very experienced middle-order.

“They are a very experienced batting line-up, certainly in the middle order, quite an astute coaching set-up – now with Mushtaq Ahmed involved as well, who has done a lot of work with the English cricket team.”

Broad said that the prospect of playing for the only trophy they have not won is very exciting for his team.

“It’s going to be an exciting place for us as a team to be and the fact that it’s the only Test trophy we don’t have.”

Pakistan will play four Tests, at Lord’s, Old Trafford, Edgbaston and the Oval, between July 14 and August 15, followed by five one-day internationals. A Twenty20 international at Old Trafford concludes the tour fixtures on September 7.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
