As you all might know, the Pakistan cricket team is currently in Bangladesh playing 2 match Test series against the host nation. There were also 3 T20I scheduled as part of the series, which in the Men in Green won.
That was followed by Pakistan winning the 1st Test match dominantly against the Bangla Tigers. The 2nd Test match is currently ongoing, however, half of the match was ruined by rain in Bangladesh.
Pakistan batted first and posted 300 runs for 4 wickets before they declared their inning. Bangladesh got all out for 87 runs only.
However, the most interesting thing that the fans witnessed was that the Pakistan cricket team’s skipper Babar Azam, who is renowned for his batting, tried his luck with the ball.
It was during the Bangladesh’s first inning when the Bangla Tigers had already lost 7 wickets for 75 runs, when Azam took the ball on his hand. He bowled the 26th over of the match and gave away only 1 run.
Drinks was called after that, after which, due to light issues, the umpires called stumps on Day 4.
