Pakistan’s pacer,
Since pitches in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are similar to those in Pakistan, Cheema reckons he will get wickets against English batsmen, who do not have much experience playing in that part of the world.
“Through my life I have played on similar pitches and I earned my place in the national side with the wickets I took on them," Cheema said.
Nonetheless, he admitted that England have quality batsmen in their arsenal and would give a tough competition to the Men in Green once the series gets underway, which includes three Test matches, four One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three T20s. at Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday, January 05, 2012.
Talking on the phenomenal batting partnership with, Hussey said, “I don't really mind. I said to Pup out in the middle I'm honoured and privileged to be a part of that. It was a fantastic innings and one that I'll remember for a long time ... and one that got our team into a very strong position in the Test match. That's what I'll remember about it," he said.
Both Hussey and Clarke clobbered a resounding partnership of 334 runs in the fifth-wicket partnership, where Hussey stood unbeaten on 150 runs.
South African all-rounder, will grab their home series win against Sri Lankan soon enough.

The Proteas need a couple of more Sri Lankan wickets to win their Test series against the Asian side.
"Once we get past [Dinesh] Chandimal at No.7, we won't find much resistance from the lower order," Philander said.
If South Africa win the series it will be their first home series win since 2008, and the way the Proteas are playing they are desperately seeking this much needed win against the depleted Sri Lankan outfit.
