ENG vs PAK 2018 : Statistical Preview of the Test Series

All the major stats and facts all you need to know as England take on Pakistan in a two test match series at home.

Alastair Cook will play record 153rd consecutive Test match of his career.

England will begin their home summer 2018 with a two Test match series against Pakistan at the Lords on Thursday. And England would love to start their home season with a win after a disappointing performance in Australia and New Zealand.

On the other hand, Pakistan have been preparaing for this series for the last one month and they will be motivated after their hard fought win against Ireland earlier this month in Dublin. Most of the Pakistani players are inexperienced and playing for the first time in England.
