England will continue to play an aggressive brand of Test cricket in their three-game series in Pakistan, coach Brendon McCullum has said.
Ben Stokes’ side have won six of seven Tests over the summer but are yet to apply their new approach abroad.
“We will push for results, but we want to play fun cricket,” McCullum told BBC Sport.
“There may be a time when you might lose to win and if Pakistan are good enough to beat us, that’s cool too.”
The former New Zealand captain added: “Our aim is to make Test cricket a sport that people want to activate and are willing to pay their money’s worth, and they come away entertained.
“With some of the conditions we’ll be facing, it could push us towards that more aggressive style that we like anyway.”
The first test begins in Rawalpindi on Thursday December 1 (05:00 GMT), with the series due to end just before Christmas.
Test matches in Pakistan have a reputation for being slow burners, with attritional cricket usually being played until a result is forced late on the fifth day, if at all.
On England’s last Test tour to Pakistan in 2005, they were beaten 2-0 with one game ending in a draw – both defeats coming on day five.
Australia toured Pakistan earlier this year and two of three Tests were drawn, with Australia winning the series decider late on the final day.
“One thing that is very important to us is not to be bound by preconceptions about wickets here,” McCullum said.
“They will all be different and if we do that we are not allowing ourselves to play what is in front of us.”
Several members of the England test squad were part of the squad that won the T20 World Cup in Australia earlier this month.
Fast bowler Mark Wood, who is not fit for the first test but should be able to play in the second, Stokes, Harry Brook and Liam Livingstone have all traveled to Pakistan.
Opening hitter Ben Duckett and all-rounder Will Jacks, who were considered white-ball specialists, also received call-ups for this tour.
“Some of them you’re probably more used to seeing in white-ball cricket, but hopefully they can bring a bit of that panache to this setup as well,” McCullum said.
“Even though the test of cricket in the subcontinent can sometimes be more strenuous and exhausting, there can always be opportunities to explode with your skills and I hope they are brave enough to do so when the time comes. “
Meanwhile, Stokes has announced that he will donate his match fees for the tour to victims of the Floods in Pakistan.
It is England’s first visit to the country for Test matches since the 2009 Sri Lanka team bus attack.
