Pakistan Cricket Team is all set to lock horns against England for the 3rd Test Match on 17th December (Saturday). The Men in Green would be playing for pride as the series has been sealed by England. Pakistan still has a slim chance of making it to the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final.

England on the other hand would be keen to make the Test tour a memorable one by winning the series by 3-0.  The visitors have been quite ruthless throughout the series. It won’t be wrong to say that England has revolutionized Test Cricket through their fearless brand of Cricket.

Babar Azam On Imam-ul- Haq Injury

Skipper Babar Azam was having an interaction with the media and gave an update on Imam. “Imam has a hamstring problem so he will not play tomorrow’s match. We have played continuous cricket and there was no rest, so that is why we are having so many injuries.” said Babar Azam.

“It’s not that we are relaxed about fitness but we have to address fitness issues. If we are playing continuous cricket we have to plan that accordingly. The wicket looks dry and it’s a typical Karachi pitch.  We will try to have a good result for us. We committed mistakes and matches were in our hands, so we must not repeat them.” he added.

Conundrum for Management

Pakistan has been dealt with a lot of injuries throughout the Test Series. The injuries to Haris Rauf & Naseem Shah have made their bowling attack a bit fragile. It is assumed that Mohammad Wasim Jr would replace Mohammad Ali who went wicketless.

It won’t be wrong to say that Pakistan doesn’t have a wide pool of players present.  The decision to drop Hasan Ali was quite questionable as the speedster is quite experienced. It would be interesting to see how the 3rd Test Match unfolds as once again we can expect fascinating action.
