, 2:23 PM IST

Karachi : Former Pakistan Test cricketer Saqlain Mushtaq has agreed to a 10-day spell with England as their spin-bowling consultant for the upcoming series against Pakistan.

Confirming the news, Saqlain said he is extremely excited to work with the England players even if it is a short-term deal.

He further revealed that he would travel to England ahead of the second Test against Pakistan in Manchester to work with the players, the Express Tribune reported.

The 39-year-old informed that he was earlier approached by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to work with them for a tour to South Africa, but had to refuse the offer due to prior commitments.

The two sides will play a four-match Test series and five-match ODI series starting July 14 at the Lord’s. (ANI)
