It was the day of optimism for Pakistan and the day of desperation for England. The home side lacks potency as they were unable to bowl shan Masood out and led him to register his highest score in test cricket. Also, their top order failed miserably once again and they were now 76-4 thanks to Oliver Pop’s strong innings. It was now with Oliver pop and Jos butler who is not out on 15 has to play a knock of their life to save England out of danger. England batsmen lack discipline and they were not up to the mark against world-class Pakistan bowling attack. They lack application and they eventually lost momentum when wickets started falling. Adding to their woe their in-form batsmen ben stokes was dismissed for a duck. So England needs to find answers otherwise this series could be very tough for them.
Pakistan bowlers exploited the conditions better. Mohammed Abbas, in particular, has played an anchor role and has guided youngsters shaheen khan Afridi and Nadeem shah. His deliveries outside the off-stump have forced the batsmen to play in front of the leg which made them commit mistakes. His stunning bowling with less pace and more swing which is considered an old-fashioned cricket model has worked out well and this time he was ably supported by shaheen khan Afridi and Nadeem shah. Both has hit the rock bottom and played a stellar role in keeping English batsmen at bay. With overcast condition will also give them better support it will be really interesting to watch them tomorrow. They have found consistency and it is the right time for them to maintain it properly to take their team for an unforgettable victory. Big plus they have to leave England’s top order in tatters and if they bowl with this consistency they can outsmart English batsmen and can take.
Early in the morning, England bowlers have shown some consistency and discipline that has reaped rewards for them. They bowled Babar Azam who was in great form for 69 then it was Masood who took the anchor role. He played a lot better yesterday morning which has helped his team to post the competitive total. Pakistan batsmen have found pavilion frequently but it was their leg-spinning all-rounder Shadab khan who has ably supported shan Masood. The duo has added century partnership for 7th wicket which also helped shan Masood to register his century. Shadab has played a steady role in the partnership and has scored 45 runs which have helped Pakistan to post a competitive total. English bowlers particularly James Anderson and Jofra archer both looked out of touch and they didn’t support Stuart board and Chris Woakes which also host them badly. Overall it was a decent cricketing affair between both the teams.
