Wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler says it would be a mistake for England to underestimate Pakistan ahead of the World Cup. England took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series with Pakistan on Friday courtesy of a three-wicket victory at Trent Bridge.

The win in Nottingham keeps the momentum building for England as they gear up for the World Cup later this month. In contrast, Pakistan have struggled in the one-day format in 2019, they lost 3-2 to South Africa at the start of the year before going down 5-0 against Australia.
But Buttler feels it would be wrong to underestimate them when the showpiece event gets underway on May 30. “Don’t underestimate Pakistan for the World Cup. They are a dangerous opponent as we saw at the Champions Trophy,” Buttler said.
