*Official* England in Pakistan (T20, September 2022)


State Vice-Captain
Haven't seen him in a while, but funny since his last England stint was ended by getting wrecked on turners in Bangladesh.
Ashwin had him on toast too. He has most batters on toast in India of course but this was particularly gruesome.


Cricketer Of The Year
He had a bit of a reputation as being a destroyer of spin even back then, going into that tour.

Unfortunately he'd acquired that rep playing Div 2 County cricket where spin bowling was dead. He'd never encountered conditions like he faced in Bangladesh or a spinner half as good as Ashwin. The step up was way too much for him.


State Vice-Captain
Ah you're right, was actually India who wrecked him. Was totally hopeless.
He kept getting out to spin of course. Mehidy Hasan had a great series but he actually got a good fifty batting second in the second test when England lost all ten in a session.
