    We are about 90 min away from action now... never seen so much excitement for Pak’s test before lol

    Let’s see if we are rusty or can rise to the occasion

    Pakistan win the toss and bat

    Azhar Ali: "We can't control the weather but we are clear in our heads. We are going with two spinner and three seamers, with Shadab as an allrounder. If you come to England you want to bowl fuller and make the batsmen play. We have bowlers who can hit the seam. We are thankful to ECB for the facilities they have given us and we are ready to go.

    couple of more fours like that and Masood can improve his strike rate.

    Babar is so delightful. A wonderful batsman. Only Mohammad Yousuf was as angelic and aesthetically pleasing to the naked eye.

    Really disappointed by Shan Masood but not really surprised.
    There was not a single convincing stroke that he could play for a boundary. Under confident edges in the slip, unable to make a solid connection, poor defense, scared enough to attack. 100% parchi who is nothing more than mummy papa type burger that looks like a bagla.

    Yeah indeed, he should have got out on andaa. Since when did Pakistan openers start scoring gritty runs ? Bring back the glorious days of Imran Farhat please

    EXACTLY !!
    That would've exposed the parchism and his very weak playing ability.
    We should've at least have had a chance to think about giving someone a chance on merit.

    Exactly!
    He is no different than Imran Farhat. Both quality wise and parchi wise.

    What is important is that he is still there and fighting it out... not everyone is a natural talent like Babar Azam... some work hard too like Shan Masood but important thing is not to throw your wicket under pressure, just keep fighting hard, if a good delivery arrives and has your name on it then so be it... he is still better than many other openers... and its not easy to bat in these conditions against a quality bowling like England's - they have some really quality pacers and conditions are supporting them... Babar Azam on the other end just makes it look so easy from one end which it is not so for everyone else...

    1st morning of an English test match particularly is always like this... there are plays and misses and so many of them.. Babar Azam is just Mohd Yousufish so nobody can be compared with him... he is just a too much special talent...

    Shan Masood's technique is lot better than many other openers in Pakistan... Imam ki technique bhi buhat solid hai... Fakhar ki technique simple hai there are no problems with his technique, Fakhar ka issue shot selection ka hai thora buhat but he is designated a role.. he goes after the bowling in first 10-15 overs whereas Imam plays the anchor role...

    Current openers mein sab se best technique Sami Aslam ki hai...

    Babar threw it away first thing this morning and since then it has been tough for them.

    139-2 was nearly 150-5 with Rizwan luckily saved by an outside edge as it was stone dead otherwise.

    Pakistan somehow need to get 300 on the board.

    Shadab and Yasir will need to string some runs too.
