The 2nd Test between West Indies and Pakistan is fast approaching and players from both teams are in focus on the CricStox market. The Windies have ensured they cannot lose the series and will now go for the win. Meanwhile, Babar Azam will need to step up again and help his team level the series.
After a drubbing at Lord’s, England have made the expected change to their squad. One of their best limited-overs batsmen in recent time, Dawid Malan makes the Test squad at the expense of Dom Sibley. Ollie Pope returns as well.
STOX IN FOCUS
Shardul Thakur: After missing out in the 2nd Test due to injury, Thakur will be in contention for selection in the next match due to his batting skills. But after Ishant Sharma’s stellar show at Lord’s, it will be interesting to see what the team management decides.
