England presents tough conditions for the Asian teams. Pakistan has a quality bowling line-up and have made life tough for England team. In the first match of the series played at Lord’s, Yasir Shah was the pick of the bowlers, grabbing 10 wickets in an innings. Pakistan never had a quality batting line up but if the conditions help the bowlers, they become the most dangerous team in the world.
