Fifty for Masood
seventh Check fifty and he is seemed good and gritty. Had a bit of scare at this time with an lbw overview in opposition to Broad that was despatched upstairs, however an inside edge saved him. Else it was three reds past that time… England look in a distinct rhythm this morning. All right down to Shafiq and Masood to make sure it does not result in a number of wickets.
Babar goes early
Oh no no no. He is pushed one in opposition to James Anderson early and edged it to Joe Root at first slip. Sufficient motion there, and all Babar needed to do was wait a bit. He does not. Jimmy Anderson, bowling from the Statham finish and with out his facial hair at this time, is glad. Pakistan 139/3
Solely 49 overs could possibly be bowled on however they proved sufficient to determine how Pakistan are going to current a stiffer problem with the bat than the West Indies. Babar Azam, having began scratchily, was quickly at his fluent greatest — chopping and pulling and driving like a dream — and had Shan Masood’s to go on the different finish.
How are England going to get again into this? Their coach Chris Silverwood has thrown to Joe Root and Co.
The climate is about to be truthful for cricket at this time. Cricket begins in 3.. 2.. 1..
