Babar Azam shines with both bat and ball in scenario-based practice match


Pakistan’s all-format captain Babar Azam has delivered a superb all-around performance in the scenario-based practice match as the Men in Green prepare for the Sri Lanka’s tour.

Babar, who piled on 134 runs before retiring, shined with the ball as he found himself among the wickets. Utilising his off-break bowling, Babar ended up picking two wickets.

Alongisde Babar, Haris Rauf and Mubasir Khan also claimed two wickets each before the match was eventually concluded as a draw.

The Sarfaraz XI featured Shaheen Afridi, Hasan Ali, Fawad Alam and Salman Agha all picked up one wicket each.

Following the conclusion of the intra-squad scenario-based match, all players will have a rest day tomorrow before finalising prepartions ahead of the all-important tour of Sri Lanka.

Salman also contributed with the bat as he was the top run-scorer for his side with 48 runs.
