Malik and Shafiq inflict torment on England
Shoaib Malik hits a maiden double ton as he Asad Shafiq have now batted for most of the day without giving a single chance to the opposition bowlers. Pakistan started day 2 on 286/4 and until latest report they have scored 458/4 and are rollicking along to a position of authority.
Asad Shafiq also has scored 100 runs and has partnered Malik in the best way possible and left the English bowlers toiling all day for a wicket but to no effect. This is Asad’s 8th test century and he is definitely become a extremely important member of our test side.
Interestingly both players have now scored over 200 runs in this partnership and the record books have taken a tumble as they march on.
Shoaib Malik and Asad Shafiq will look to bat with a more aggressive intent as the declaration looms around the corner. With Sarfraz Ahmed waiting in the wings, Pakistan are making it look like they don’t want to bat for a second time in this test match.
