    England test tour of Pakistan December 2022

    howe's right here though that if they bowl like dead****s it doesn't matter if they have four sessions, three sessions and more runs or three runs and no sessions, they won't get the result. all down to the execution, and then all of the talking heads will retcon the genius or otherwise the...
