Another day of run fest ended in Rawalpindi as Pakistan cricket team looks to get near to England team’s first inning total of 657 runs.
The 1st match of the 3 match Test series between hosts Pakistan cricket team and England cricket team is currently ongoing at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi.
Batting first, England once again displayed their attacking cricket in the longest format of the game. The dead pitch further added to their advantage as they went on to score 657 runs with 4 batsmen getting passed 100 runs mark individually.
Chasing England’s total, Pakistan have scored 499 runs for the loss of 7 wickets at the end of Day 3. For Pakistan, their openers too scored a century while Babar Azam also added 136 runs.
Meanwhile, something during the day’s play that caught many people’s attention when former England captain Joe Root used Jack Leach’s head to shine the ball. Note that, the use of saliva has been banned for shining the ball.
Seeing this, many are their views on this while many are making fun of it.

What if leach applied Vaseline on his head in the dugout and now he’s using that to shine the ball. That’s a smart way of cheating tho tbh i would surely use that if i was him— . (@genwiine) December 3, 2022
