The Babar-Fawad show on Day 1…Kemar Roach and Jayden Seales continued to impress and stunned Pakistan to 2/3 in the first few minutes of the second Test. Two of PAK’s best batsmen – Babar Azam (75) and Fawad Alam (76) then resurrected the innings with help from Rizwan and Ashraf.
It was just the first day of the Test, but it already sets up another exciting contest. Meanwhile, the build-up to the ENG-IND Leed’s Test continues to gather pace.
