The three-match series will start July 8
Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf has said the role of bowlers will be the key in the high-scoring ODIs against England.
The Men-in-Green will face the reigning world champions in the three-match ODI series starting July 8.
“Usually we have seen high-scoring games in England. When we toured last year, the par score in the series was around 350,” the pacer told the Pakistan Cricket Board.
“Conditions here are batting-friendly but as a bowler, we have to work as a unit in order to restrict the opposition to a respectable total. I think, taking wickets is the key here especially in high-scoring games.”
Pakistan have a good bowling combination featuring in-form Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain and himself, Rauf said.
“We have good combination and I think we would continue the same strategy we had in the South Africa series, where our bowlers did well,” he added.
The 27-year-old has represented Pakistan in five ODIs and 19 T20Is, in which he claimed 33 wickets.
