Pak vs Eng: Here is Shahid Afridi’s suggestion for Pakistani batting line-up

As the third and last Test of the Pakistan vs England three-game series approaches, former skipper Shahid Afridi on Tuesday suggested two changes in the Green shirts line up.

The former captain believes that top hitter Shan Masood and wicketkeeper Sarfaraz Ahmed should be included in the Pakistan squad.

Sarfaraz, who has played 49 Test matches, hasn’t featured in the longest format for Pakistan since January 2019. Meanwhile, Shan hasn’t put on the whites for Pakistan since January 2021.

“Players who are out of the squad like Sarfaraz Ahmed and Shan Masood should be given a chance. Players who have done well in domestic cricket deserve an opportunity as we are now out of the running for the Test World Championship as well,” Afridi said. at an event in Karachi.

Afridi also praised the England team for playing an aggressive brand of cricket in Test matches.

“England played outstanding cricket. Their captain [Ben Stokes] made the difference in his decision-making,” he said. “The approach of their coach [Brendon McCullum] was very positive, which is a refreshing sight.

The two games came on the back of an aggressive hitter nicknamed “Bazball,” after new coach Brendon “Baz” McCullum who has transformed the team since taking charge in May.

The win gives England their eighth victory in nine Tests since McCullum and Stokes took charge.

It is also England’s third series win in Pakistan, although they have not toured there for 17 years for security reasons.

It should be noted that England took full advantage of the draw victory – and their depth of shot – to win the first Test by 74 runs from a dead wicket which offered nothing for the bowlers.

Rawalpindi produced 1,768 runs in four innings – the third most in Test history – with seven individual centuries and five fifty.

The visitors also won the second Test in Multan by 26 points to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game series.

The third and final test in the series takes place in Karachi from December 17-21.
