Newzealand 🆚 Pakistan 🇵🇰 2nd test, day 1/as it happened
Hello and welcome dear awesome scorumians, in today's article I would like to bring some analysis of the 2nd test match which is being played between Pakistan 🇵🇰 and Newzealand at Dubai. Before coming to my topic I am going to discuss a bit on my post which I posted on the 3rd day of the first test match and the title of my post was (Pakistan 🇵🇰 in a commanding position against Newzealand after day 3) and I was not wrong because everybody would have thought the same as I did, I remember there is another guy here @umair who titled a post same day as (Pakistan 🇵🇰 on the brink of wining ist test against Newzealand). But as we are aware and the words are being repeated from time to time by the greats that, " crick is the game of uncertainties" and honestly speaking it is a bitter truth and it is hardly possible to predict anything before the end of the game. In the first test match at the end of day 3 Pakistan were 37 for none with just 171 runs to win a test match in their stipulated two days and a session, but the start on fourth day was not good and openers lost their wickets in quick succession after that the game was consolidated by Azar Ali and he made things easier for the time and st the end Pakistan 🇵🇰 needed 5 runs to win with four wickets in hand, who would have thought that Pakistan is going to loose this game but here happened a big uncertainty, all the four wickets got out without scoring a single run. That is cricket and the uncertainty in it. Letus now talk about the second test match which is being played in Dubai. Earlier Pakistan 🇵🇰 won the toss and decided to bat first but the decision proved not to be good earlier as both the openers got out in a quick succession. Imam_ul_haq made 9 runs of 27 deliveries and Mohammad Hafeez also failed to perform well and got out at the same score as of Imam I,e 9 runs from 24 deliveries. Then it was Haris Sohail and Azar Ali who showed tremendous resistance on the ground and batted very dead making the bowlers tired and when it looked that the tiered bowlers won't be able to pick any wickets now, it was a big mistake and it may not be wrong to say it as a blunder when Azar Ali played the ball towards midoff and went off for a single but his partner was just ball watching and didn't respond his call and Azar was caught short of the crease and got out in an awkward fashion. Then it was Asad Shafi who got out after making 12 runs of 36 balls. For Newzealand the Pick of the bowlers was Colin degrandhome who suffered Pakistan 🇵🇰 with a double strike and another wicket was taken by the star of previous matches Ajaz Patel who was a nightmare for pakistani team in the previous match. At the End of the day Pakistan were 207/4 with Haris Sohail on 81 and Babar Azam playing on 14 from 27 balls. A quick summary about the match for those who don't like to read full article.
