Stats™

Babar Azam needs 76 runs to reach 2000

Shan Masood faced more balls from James Anderson (62, without being dismissed) in the previous Test than he had faced in six innings previously (57 balls, six dismissals)

Last time England played consecutive tests without Ben Stokes was the 2017-18 ashes

Who to watch (my opinion):

Babar Azam couldn’t convert his 50 in the first inning at Manchester and collapsed with the rest of the team in the second. Am looking to see how he’ll rebound. Azhar Ali is also one to watch as well as he failed both innings and failed as captain. He’s fighting for his spot now.

Don Sibley was recently talking about how he had good opportunities for centuries but blew them, am looking forward to see how he approaches batting this time around as he looks to convert.
