The epic action in the form of Test cricket has started as Pakistan and England engaged in the blazing battle between bat and ball on the first day of Manchester Test.
Babar Azam’s elegance and Shan Masood’s persistence helped Pakistan having a fine outing at Old Trafford. The men in green finished at 139/2 in 49 overs on the day one.
Before the start of the top-notch cricketing action from the Pakistan vs England Test series, skippers of both teams shared a hilarious moment at the toss.
Due to the COVID-19 circumstances, it is impermissible for the players to shake hands with each other to follow the SOPs issued by International Cricket Council (ICC).
The rules are also applicable to Pakistan vs England Test series but a hilarious violation of rule from Azhar Ali and Joe Root in the form of a handshake between both captains gave a pleasant touch to the beginning of the Test series.
The funny expressions on the face of Azhar afterwards told us the whole story!
Pakistan would look to build a strong total on the board to leave a fine platform for its bowlers to defend. The respectable contributions from batting line-up could play a very crucial role in raising Pakistan’s chances of winning against England at Old Trafford.
