The rain-hit second Test between Pakistan and England ended in a draw and hence, here is a look at a few takeaways from the game.
A Make Or Break Moment In Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq & Fawad Alam’s International Career
Test skipper Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq failed once more during the game and therefore, it is understood that both senior batsmen now must score runs in the next game or at least one of them is almost certain to face the selector’s axe.
Fawad Alam’s failure too has put his international career in jeopardy. The middle-order batsman then would be desperate for another chance in the next game. Another bad game and/or if the selectors decide not to pick him at all can potentially result in ending his international career for good.
Mohd. Rizwan Cements His Places
Mohd. Rizwan for now has cemented his place in the Test playing eleven. The 28 year old then without a shadow of doubt is Pakistan’s first choice wicket-keeper in the format and hence, Sarfaraz Ahmed has little choice but to either wait or call it a day from Test cricket.
Light Rule Under The Scanner
The light rule has made headlines world-wide and so, the International Cricket Council (ICC) it seems is now forced to review the law.
