Pakistan’s test opener, Azhar Ali said that 300 above runs would be enough to get hold of New Zealand in the ongoing second Test at Dubai International Stadium.
Azhar while talking to the media said that they were 25 to 30 runs short on day 1 but still they have six wickets in hand to cross 300 runs mark.
“I think if we cross 300 runs mark then our bowlers will get ample space to get rid of New Zealand’s batsmen,” said Azhar who observed fast bowlers dominating on the pitch.
It is pertinent to mention here that at stumps Pakistan were 207-4 with Haris Sohail (81) and Babar Azam (14) on the crease.
Azhar Ali remained unlucky after getting run-out on 81 runs. He had a strong partnership of 126 with Haris Sohail which lifted Pakistan from the danger zone.
Azhar when asked about a series of run-out in the last three matches, said that “It happens in cricket”
“Sometimes you get run-out which is obviously a frustrating moment but it is a part of the game,” Azhar added.
It is worth mentioning here that this was Azhar’s second dismissal through a run-out as earlier against Australia in the second test he walked back due to a silly run-out.
