After seven members of England's limited-overs squad tested positive for COVID-19, the entire squad that featured against Sri Lanka has been put under isolation. As a result, England Cricket Board (ECB) have named an all-new squad of 18 players for series against Pakistan. While captain Ben Stokes is the only big name included, the team features many new faces. Reflecting on the same, Stuart Broad made a hilarious remark on Twitter that left everyone in splits.
Gotta feel for the Pakistan Team Analyst: Broad
As Pakistan landed in England, the Green Brigade would have had their plans set for all the first-team players. The analyst would have made out all the reports around players like Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan etc. who impressed with their performances in the recently-concluded series against Sri Lanka.
However, with ECB announcing a fairly new squad, England pacer Stuart Broad trolled Pakistan's team analyst who will have to start from scratch once again. Reflecting on the fact that the analyst will need to collect data for all new faces included in England's new squad, Broad hilariously stated, "Gotta feel for the Pakistan Team Analyst- would have had all the plans sorted! Busy few days ahead!!"
9 uncapped players in England's new ODI squad
ECB have notably named 9 uncapped players in the new squad which is going to make the job of Pakistan's team analyst way more challenging than he would have expected. Players like Brydon Carse, Zak Crawley, Lewis Gregory, Tom Helm, Will Jacks, Dan Lawrence, David Payne, Phil Salt and John Simpson could potentially make their debuts in the 3-match series. As Broad said, there are certainly few busy days ahead for Pakistan and their team analyst.
