LONDON: Young skipper Pakistan Test side Salman Butt, shelving Pakistan’s chances of winning third Test match against England, said Thursday: “Victory in Oval Test is still beyond imagination. We have got to work harder and harder”.
Being thankful over team’s performance, he said: “I am happy that two days belonged to Pakistan”.
“Mohammed Yousuf is a senior and experienced customer, which is evident from his brilliant comeback in international cricket, featuring half century at a crucial time in this Test match”, he noted.
At last, Pakistan have succeeded to pile up a total of 308 runs – their highest in an innings on England tour with first innings lead of 75 runs.
In reply to Pakistan’s first innings lead, English team could only manage to score 6 runs for 1 wicket in second innings with 69 more runs still needing to rid first innings deficiency.
Fast Bowler and debutant Wahab Riaz said for me the most memorable moment in Oval Test has been sending English batsman Iyan Morgan back to pavilion, adding: “I will try my best to complete 10-wicket haul in second innings.”
Pakistan lineup is backed by fast bowlers Mohammed Asif, Mohammed Amir, dangerous-looking Wahab Riaz and mysterious spinner Saeed Ajmal.
