The men’s T20 Cricket World Cup is just around the corner, with the best teams in the game set to battle it out to become World Champions.
This year’s tournament will be the second T20 World Cup in 12 months, with Australia prevailing over New Zealand in last year’s final in the UAE.
Jos Buttler has taken over the captain’s armband, with the England opener looking to follow in Morgan’s footsteps and guide the team to their second title success in just over three years following their ODI victory at the 2019 World Cup.
But before the competition begins, Buttler and England are in Pakistan for the first time since 2005 for seven warm-up matches.
