https://sportzwiki.com/wiki/england-cricket-teamEngland Cricket Team had a great day with the bat in hand. The visitors managed to score 354 runs and get a massive 50-run lead on a testing wicket. Harry Brook continued his purple patch as the right-handed batter smashed yet another ton and 3rd of the Series where he scored 111 runs in 150 balls where he struck 8 fours and 3 sixes.
Pakistan on the other hand would be disappointed with their performance as they couldn’t wrap up the tail. The last 4 wickets yielded 94 runs and that could be a turning point in the Test Match. Abrar Ahmed & Nauman Ali took 4 wickets each but at the same time, both the spinners conceded more than 100 runs.
Harry Brook Breaks David Gower’s Record
Earlier in 1984, the legendary David Gower had scored 449 runs at an average of 112.25 in a 3 Test match Series in Pakistan. Harry Brook so far has scored 468 runs with 3 centuries with an average of 93.60. Harry Brook so far has looked unstoppable as his attacking approach has been fruitful.
Exciting Contest on Cards
The Day 3 promises to be a fascinating contest as Pakistan is still trailing by 29 runs. England would be hoping that they are not chasing any total of around 350 as the pitch has started to deteriorate. It would be interesting to see how the youngster Rehan Ahmed fares as in the 1st innings, he had taken 2 scalps.
Pakistan on the other hand should make sure that they bat as long as possible as there’s a lot of time remaining in the Test match. The Men in Green still has a thin chance of making it to World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final. Skipper Babar Azam needs to get a big knock under his belt as he has had a topsy turvy Series so far.
