Pakistan squad likely to undergo changes for second test against South Africa
CENTURION – Pakistan squad is likely to undergo changes ahead of the second test against South Africa.
Cricketers Muhammad Abbas and Haris Sohail are fit for playing second test match against South Africa, skipper Sarfraz Ahmad told the media.
While commenting on defeat in the first test match, Sarfraz said, “it is everyone’s responsibility” including the coaching staff, to try and fix the batting department after yet another collapse as they lost the first Test against the Proteas in Centurion on Friday.
After being bowled out for 181 in the first innings, Pakistan fought back with the ball and dismissed the hosts for just 223.
The tourists were then well on their way to a match-winning lead when they found themselves 101-1 in the second innings only to crumble to 194 all out to give the hosts a target of 149, which they knocked off on day three to win by six wickets.
Sarfraz told reporters after the game in Centurion: “We are struggling in the second innings. We get a good start but whenever one wicket falls, we are not able to take control of the match.
