It was a disappointing day for Pakistani team who suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of England side. The Green Team is yet to witness a victory on the tour and all thanks to the rain for saving them from further embarrassment.
Full Scorecard: PAK vs ENG Live Score & Updates
Babar Azam will have to revisit his batting technique. The team expects him to convert the starts into big innings, his role up front demanded a better strike rate than what he offered today. His inability to take the ariel route after almost scoring run a ball half century puts pressure on the next batsman.
If he continued to play in the same manner, the day is not far when a tag of “selfish” will be associated with him
Babar Azam inexperience as a captain, as he is often seen covered with experienced players advising him. A leader tends to take the blame on himself, too many cooks spoil the meal, Babar must take the command in his own hands.
Pakistan needs to play smart in picking the right combination for the match. They should have brought back Wahab Riaz in place of Haris Rauf. Khushdil Shah deserves a role in the 3rd T20I squad after a poor display of all-round performance by Iftikhar.
Amir’s fitness & wicket-taking ability is a question. Amir bluntly endorsed his decision to quit test format in order to focus on limited-overs cricket but today he left the field limping at a crucial time when the team needed him the most.
Hafeez is a deadly bowler against left-handers but he wasn’t bothered to bowl when the partnership was building between Malan and Morgan.
Pakistan lack power hitters who can finish the innings on a high note. Malik needs time to settle down before he can whack the ball out of the ground.
Shaheen Shah Afridi is overburdened. He is the only pacer to play to all three formats of the game.
Pakistani fans take pride in their bowling department and it is considered as world’s best line-up but in the recent past, it was more of their bowling letting them down as compared to their all-time struggling batting.
