Pakistan added only 29 runs to their overnight score, but they haven’t lost any wickets in the one-hour morning session. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan continued firmly on the crease.
Babar Azam unfortunately kept leaving the balls outside off and forced the bowlers to bowl at the sticks. Mohammad Rizwan, on the other hand, was happy to nudge it around. Post this lunch break the game is yet to go long for the teams. Still, a long way to go for Pakistan to set a competitive total. England might be working on strategies too in the meanwhile.
It would be thrilling to see whether Babar Azam would be able to reach a fifty. He has currently taken 111 balls and scored 45.Babar Azam has scored a fifty-plus score in each of the last 6 Tests that he has played so far.
