Very good that he didn't got the 300. LOL
Just declare FGS.
Enough of this torture.
This is now Buttler’s highest FC score
Still no sign of a declaration
England looking to only bat once
Yasir Shah - 39 overs 2 wickets at an econ of 4
Shafiq and Fawad - 19 overs 3 wickets haha
This team is a joke.
We should have won that 1st test.
how the hell we lost that i can not understand.
Anyone having an iota of Cricketing sense will not make such a statement. You are simply an hater.
Lol people were writing of Anderson. What a quality bowler even at close to 40. Respect
These two need to both hit double hundreds for Pak to have any hope.
I am a hater. Any criticism must be blind hate. OK
Blind lovers of a player and blind haters of a player are one and the same btw
MashaAllah Babar failed again.
This game will end tomorrow with innings defeat for Pakistan.
This tour has been a failure for Babar also. Looked good in patches but that it. Very disappointing, all our experienced/senior pros have been trash (Azhar and (especially) Asad expected, Babar and Yasir very disappointing).
Yasir Shah picked 8 wkts in the 1st test, atleast he has not been disappointing... its not his fault that you did not play 5 bowlers,...
Disappointed by England.
Abhi bhi chance hai ... England k supporters ban jao and your najoomi panna and prophesy will come true.
babar also hasnt proved his worth yet. Final inning will be pretty much meaningless so no point even if he scores a hundred in final inning.

As I stated in my previous posts, his prime and main focus is on only one thing - and that is: get the ball of his liking and play a lovely looking and very stylish stroke - and he is pretty darn good at that.
However, he must understand that this is not the end of the world.
He has A LOT to learn.
The bowlers will not always give him halwa balls.
He needs to become an expert of two things -
1 - He must learn how to play mind games with the bowler and become good at predicting what the next ball is gonna be?
If he is not shrewd and street smart, they will eat him alive with this lallu mindset.
2 - Improvise
Not every single stroke he plays must be lovely and stylish. He must learn to fox out the fielders and rotate the strike to create frustration among the opposition. He MUST learn to get out of his comfort zone and play solid cricket.
If he doesn’t learn that, and if he is not ready to expand his skill set, then chances of him playing long innings on regular basis are slim.
Feeqa. What a joke of batsman this guy is.
Saved by the rain
Only rain can save Pakistan now. Rain for 3 days.
Abysmal display thus far.
Azhar get moving play some shots atleast rotate the strike.. this has come to a standstill.. you got to move the innings now.. You are on 6 notout... you are batting since last night..
Fawad Alam what a stance lol
Bhai this test match was in your favor.. you got them 127 for 4 down... You are losing this cus you did not play 5 bowlers... you needed another pacer on this pitch... there was something in it for pacers in first 2 sessions.. Yasir Shah was overexposed in my opinion... If you had 4 pacers, Yasir Shah would come in to mop the tail and those 4 pacers would pick atleast top 6 wickets amongst them... You squandered this golden chance in my opinion.. there is not much batting in English ranks after Woakes in my opinion.. you failed to exploit that and you could exploit that long tail only if u had 4 pacers and Yasir Shah.. Naseem Shah is a very good bowler but he is young.. he can win you a World Cup he is that good in shorter formats but in test cricket, he needs couple of years... you need to bring back Sohail Khan and Wahab Riaz to do well in test cricket...
Fawad Alam aur Azhar Ali lag raha hai sekre maareinge.. jis tarah khel rahe hein... i hope and wish donon 100s maar dein and save their careers.. Asad ke saath to buhat bura hogaya hope he gets 100 too in next innings... Shan, Abid and Babar all of them should get runs in next innings...
Save your careers atleast...
Eik to jab Pakistani batsman set hone lagte hein is ground per baarish ho jati hai jab England ki batting aati hai conditions perfect ho jati hein...
Any other team Shafiqa would have been discarded long ago. We will probably still keep this 'senior' on to contribute nothing to the side for the next 3 years
Playing for averages now.
Archer is very overrated bowler.
Atleast he bowls with some attitude.. Naseem Shah had a lot of venom and attitude about him... where did it all disappear? Why is he bowling like a medium pacer... Sami played most of his cricket in Asia and had a test bowling average of 50+ he played on some of the flattest pitches of the world... but every ball he used to bowl he used to bowl with some attitude... he wont bowl any looseners.. he would bowl quick every single delivery... even if he bowled one line he bowled at pace.. he did not bowl like Ashok Dinda...
Woakes bowling some real quality
Fawad Alam is a piss poor batsman.
At least 3 batting positions in this Pakistani lineup are wasted.
And one of the opener.
Fawad should stay... he can bowl too..
