Babar Azam and Abdullah Shafique were dismissed by England as Pakistan attempted to chase down 343 runs in the first Test match currently taking place at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. As England set Pakistan an intimidating 343-run mark to win the first Test on the fourth day in Rawalpindi on Sunday, Harry Brook and Joe Root hammered quick-fire fiftys. England accelerated to 264-7 thanks to Brook’s ferocious 65-ball 87 and Root’s 69-ball 73 before captain Ben Stokes ordered his batters back to the pavilion, giving the home team a maximum 130 overs to finish the game. In the first of three matches, England, which is playing its first Test series in Pakistan in 17 years, batted with a limited-overs ferocity.
