Pakistan Tour of England: Pakistan cancel 2nd intra-squad match, resort to scenario-based practice sessions for warm-up: The Men in Green who were to play their second intra-squad practice match today in Derby, England, took to the scenario-based practice session to get the real essence of the pressure-bound limited over games. Team Pakistan had earlier played an intra-squad match on July 1 to prepare themselves better for the upcoming limited-overs series (3 ODI’s & 3 T20I’s) against England slated to kick off from July 8.


Pakistan tour of England –  Babar Azam XI vs Shadab Khan XI LIVE: Ahead of the second intra-squad practice clash that saw a little drizzle, Pakistan’s Cricket official Twitter account engaged in some fun-based guess-activity with the fans.

Pakistan tour of England –  Babar Azam XI vs Shadab Khan XI LIVE: The right-arm legbreak bowler in the post is Usman Qadir, son of Pakistan’s former spinner Abdul Qadir. Usman is most likely to feature for his side in the white ball series against the Three Lions. A batting allrounder by role, Usman has a phenomenal economy of 7.21 in T20I (Mtch-11 Wkts-18) and possesses an economy of 5.33 in the only ODI he has played for Pakistan (Wkt-1).

Azam, who smashed a scintillating ton in the practice, led his team to a clinical victory by 164 runs.

While Shadab Khan won the toss and chose to field against the other half of Babar Azam led Pakistan team, Khan’s decision seemingly backfired as the latter’s XI aggregated 364 runs with just the loss of 5 wickets at the end of the 50 overs. Continuing his sublime form, Azamsmashed a hundred and jammed 159 run-partnership with Imam Ul Haq during their innings.
