Come November and we have action packed month. First Test series, then ODi and finally the T20 series. Pakistan and England are set to play three matches t20 series in U.A.E. Back in 2012, in the February, similar series was played between the two nations and England won the series by 2-1. So, they will be looking to take the series home once again, and on the other hand we have Pakistan who will try to take revenge bring back the series to their lap. The three match series is scheduled to start from November 26 (26th, 27th and 30th November). While for the first two T20 matches venue is same i.e. Dubai, but for the last match venue is Sharjah. For Pakistan side we see lot of players picked up from the test and ODI teams, but for England, lots of players chosen are different.
But before the series, one t20 match between the elevens of T20 and UAE will be played on 23rd November. Looks like this is an effort by the International Cricket Control to give local teams an exposure to the international level as well. Timing of the matches is chosen as 20:00 local time that means all the matches will be played in night time only. Both teams are strong in terms of t20 matches, and a pretty good hitters and bowlers for this type of matches. Players like Ben Strokes, Jos Buttler are great player to see in the t20 matches.
T20 format is the new, yet the popular format in the cricket world. Each team gets to bat and bowl for 20 over, which is a matter of 3 hours for one team. One bowler can bowl for only 4 over at max. There are 6 balls to be bowled in one over.
