The Pakistan national team will be looking to move past a spot-fixing scandal that made headlines across the sporting world. The squad faces England for a three-game series which starts in Dubai next week.

The recalled when England played Pakistan in the UK in 2010, the tour was marred by match-fixing allegations, ending with Salman Butt, Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif being thrown in jail.

Since then, the Pakistan Cricket Board has attempted to address the corruption which has often attached itself to the national team.

Misbah Ul-Haq’s captaincy has connected with the side being considered one of the top international cricket teams in the world.

He says, "I think everybody knows and the team, both teams knows that we just have to forget the past and they did well, I think the team is really playing well, the players are performing and I think there is nothing in their mind, because whatever they just came, they just came to play, they just give their 100 percent and nobody is worried about what happened in the past, everyone just focusing on the future and the present."
