Hussain describes England’s nine-wicket drubbing at the hands of Pakistan in the first Test as their “most worrying” of recent defeats, with their constant batting collapses a cause of great concern.

“It’s not good enough, and it’s no longer the time for the ‘softly, softly’ approach,” says Hussain. “They need to show more mental application. Are you up for the fight?”

Hussain also talks up his ‘roving reporter’ role at the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge at Lord’s on Thursday.

Wasim, meanwhile, says he is confident there is even more to come from this promising Pakistan Test team and reminisces about inviting Andrew Flintoff round to his house for a barbecue during his Lancashire days.
