Pakistan vs England Highlights today. 3rd Test, National Stadium, Karachi, Saturday 17-12-2022, England tour of Pakistan 2022.
Pakistan, elected to bat first.
Babar Azam breaks his run of bad luck at the coin flip. “We will try to get a score and put pressure on them,” he says. Four changes confirmed for Pakistan: Azhar, Wasim Jnr, Nauman Ali, and Shan Masood come in, with Mohammad Nawaz, Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Ali, and the injured Imam-ul-Haq sitting out.
England announced their team yesterday, with Ben Foakes coming back into the side and Ahmed making his debut. Will Jacks and James Anderson be the players to drop out? “Very exciting times for himself, his family, and for English cricket as well,” says Stokes of the new kid. He too would have batted but was hopeful that there might be something in the deck for his bowlers
