England were given a wake up call in their first Test of 2012 as they suffered a defeat to Pakistan in the 1st Test. Pakistan demonstrated they are still on the rise with a youthful team that has a lot of talent. England are not the number one team in the World for nothing and they will be hoping to fight back and take this 2nd Test to level the series.
Match Information :
January 25-29, Abu Dhabi
Starting Time: 1000 Local Time
How the Teams Stand:
The 1st Test was very short lasting only 3 days but England would of felt that it had been going on for longer as they suffered a humiliating 10 wicket defeat to Pakistan which was their first match as the number 1 test team in the world. England have a balanced side with a strong bowling attack and strong batting order but the batting let England down which lead them falling behind early in the match and not being able to fight back. Pakistan’s spinners remain to be a dangerous threat to any team Pakistan play and if they can continue landing the ball in the right spot England’s batsman will have to be at their best.
