Jos Buttler, the captain of England’s Twenty20 team, said on Thursday that he hopes his team rises to the challenge of playing a good Pakistani team on their first visit to the nation in 17 years.

Since the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009, Pakistan has struggled to draw visiting teams due to security concerns, although tours have progressively restarted in recent years, with England being the most recent.

Buttler believed his young team would prepare well for the massive event as this seven-match series is seen as a lead-up to the Twenty20 World Cup, which will take place in Australia next month.

Buttler, who will miss the first few games to properly recuperate from a calf injury, said, “We look forward to the tough task and to be battle-hardened for the World Cup after this series.
