Apart from Babar Azam the likes of Mohd. Hasnain, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf and Usman Qadir performed pretty decently and therefore, showed plenty of promise.

Cricketers Who Disappointed Again
Fakhar Zaman could not get going once more and it is now apparent that the opening batsman is under massive pressure to keep his place in the team. It should then surprise no one if the left-handed batsman is omitted from the squad that is named for the upcoming tour to New Zealand.
Same is the case with Faheem Ashraf. Frankly, why selectors have invested in him so much is beyond comprehension. The so called all-rounder neither bowls nor bats effectively and thus, perhaps the time right for the selectors to drop and replace him with a more deserving candidate like Aamir Yamin.
