First Test of the three match #PakvsAus series is heading towards a draw but Sajid Khan believes otherwise while Usman Khawaja isn’t happy at all after missing out on his first hundred in Pakistan.
Sajid Shah Thinks Pakistan Can Bounce Back, Usman Khawaja Not Happy
Speaking after the end of third day’s play off-spinner Sajid Khan said, “It was a tough day for our bowlers. We tried to bowl on good line and lengths but Australian batters played really well. There is no doubt, we are 100% in the game. We will try to take early wickets tomorrow. We will sit with management today to discuss our plan to get Marnus and Smith out earlier tomorrow morning.”
Australia’s opening batsman Usman Khawaja who was dismissed yesterday for 97 runs on the hand said, “It’s sad, cricket is a funny game, You bat so well and for 97. I would have loved the hundred, especially at Rawalpindi. It is not the ideal feeling but, I took the good and the bad. Whatever comes, comes. Whatever was meant to happen, it happened. But I am very satisfied.”
“It was touch and go, I thought it might have hit my glove. Though I was telling myself it has not hit the glove more than anything, yeah, it was clearly out. You got to respect Test cricket, you have to respect the wicket, and the opposition as well. I think tomorrow is another big day for us. If we can bat well, keep scoring runs, and then give us an opportunity. We are still 200 runs behind them, we have a long way too, batting well tomorrow is first and foremost for us. The wicket is definitely detreating, there are cracks on it now, it’s hard to know about it in next two days. The rain also has a part. It’s still a good wicket, but it will keep decorating over the next two days.”
