“Who is watching the one-day match with red-ball” – Shahid Afridi reacts to the performances of the players in the second Test between Pakistan and England

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was literally taken aback by the way Pakistan and England have been batting in the second Test match which is currently being held at Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan.

Earlier, England hogged the limelight for implementing the “Bazball” approach to the game and because of this, they reaped rewards in the first Test as they beat Pakistan national cricket team by 74 runs in Rawalpindi.

The visitors drew first blood in the series and the cricketing action shifted towards the second Test match. England stuck to a similar batting template in the second Test but that cost them too many wickets.


They scored runs at the rate of knots just like how they batted in the first innings of the first Test match. However, that didn’t work out as they were bowled out for 281 runs inside 52 overs.

Shahid Afridi reacts to the performances of players in the second Test

The fact that they scored runs at a swift pace triggered former Pakistani international Shahid Afridi to comment on the performances of players in the second Test match.

The former Pakistani all-rounder took to his official Twitter handle and then posted a tweet asking the fans who are all following the ODI match with red-ball.


He also went on to say best of luck to both teams. At the same time, he added that spinners could make the difference and his prediction was spot on. Abrar Ahmed who made his Test debut against England turned out to be a vital performer in the game.

The right-arm leg-break bowler bowled incredibly well and accounted for seven dismissals to his name. His outstanding performance in the first innings helped Pakistan restrict England to a decent total.

“So who is watching the one-day match with red-ball?! All the best to both the teams, great start for @englandcricket so far, but watch out – spinners could make the difference. Duas for Pak to win this and keep the series alive,” Afridi tweeted.
