England cricket squad gear up to face Pakistan in the UAE


England’s cricketers have continued their preparations for the three-match Test series against Pakistan in the UAE that begins on October 13. On Saturday, they went through their paces with another tough training session at the ICC Academy at Dubai Sports City. Batsman James Taylor feels he’s well equipped to return to Test cricket for the first time since 2012.


Taylor is looking forward to going up against Pakistan’s slow bowlers during the tour.


The three Test matches are followed by four One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 matches. Taylor has no complaints about the searing heat the squad have experienced since touching down early on Thursday morning.
