England cricket team absolutely had a spectacular day at the office as they wouldn’t forget what they accomplished on Day 1 of the first Test match against the Pakistan cricket team in Rawalpindi.
From Pakistan’s point of view, they failed to prepare a Test match pitch and they ended up paying a massive price as the bowlers were absolutely belted by the English batters all over the park with such ease.
Well, Test cricket is supposed to be thrilling and intriguing but the way the game progressed was something that literally nobody expected to be in the first place. The game very much seemed to be like an ODI format.
The English batters scored runs at the rate of knots as the visitors scored close to seven runs an over. As a result, they were able to post a massive total on the board on the first day’s play.
