Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif invited the Pakistan and England cricket teams to PM House for dinner after the first test concluded at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium.

While congratulating the visiting side for the remarkable win, the premier stated that England deserved the victory because they performed admirably throughout the five-day match.

The Ben Stokes-led side defeated the home team by 74 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match Test series, and both teams will now head to Multan for the second game.

Shehbaz Sharif also praised the effort made by Pakistan in the match despite the opposition’s aggressive cricket, stating that he believes in this team and is confident that they will bounce back in the second match.

The Prime Minister also thanked Ben Stokes, saying that while he was unable to attend the dinner, he appreciated his assistance to flood-affected people in Pakistan.

During his speech, Prime Minister Shehbaz congratulated the England team on their victory and thanked them for touring Pakistan again.

“Congratulations! “England played very well in this Test match, and they deserve this victory,” he said.

“I believe in this Pakistani team. “I am confident that my team will bounce back in Multan,” he added.

“England and its people have always helped Pakistan.” “His donation will be really helpful for the people here,” he concluded.

It is worth noting that Ben Stokes has announced that he will donate his match fee for the current three-match Test series to those affected by severe flooding in Pakistan.
