Pakistan vs England Live: Babar Azam In Shatters After Losing The Game Even Before The 3rd Test Began. In the third and final test of a three-match series that got underway on Saturday, December 17 at the National Stadium in Karachi, Pakistan is aiming for a consolation victory. The Men in Green lost their first two games at Rawalpindi and Multan by scores of 74 and 26, respectively. With one game remaining, England won the series with a commanding 2-0 advantage. Since 2000, they had not won a Test series in Pakistan.
On Friday, Pakistani batsman Azhar Ali made his retirement announcement. The Karachi Test will be his final one. Rehan Ahmed and Ben Foakes were substituted for James Anderson and Will Jacks in the playing XI, marking the tourists’ two changes from the last test. Rehan broke Brian Close’s 1949 record of 18 years and 149 days to become the player to make his England debut at the youngest age.
Watch: Saqlain Mushtaq Stuns Babar Azam With Superb Delivery In The Nets
Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, went to the nets on the eve of the third Test against England in Karachi. Azam had mixed results in the first two Tests. Saqlain Mushtaq, the head coach, made the decision to roll his arms and hit Babar with a peach of a delivery.
Babar attempted to play a reverse lap shot as the 45-year-old angled the delivery towards the off-stump line, but the ball swiftly twisted in and went underneath the swinging bat to rattle the stumps. Babar looked back at Saqlain in shock at how it all turned out before picking up his practice once more.
