A miserable warm-up outing for Pakistan

Ahead of their first Test against the West Indies on Friday, Pakistan were outclassed by a President’s XI line-up in their only warm-up that resulted in a draw.

Batting first in the three-day contest, WI President’s XI put up 419 in 126.1 overs. Vishaul Singh outshone with an unbeaten 234-ball 135. Kieran Powell and Shimron Hetmyer scored 58 and 97 respectively.

Mohammad Amir picked up two scalps in 22.1 overs. Asad Shafiq and Yasir Shah bagged two wickets each.

In their reply, Pakistan managed a meagre 192 in 68 overs as Ahmed Shehzad top-scored with 55. In his 151-ball stay at the crease, he hit five 4s. Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, and captain Misbah-ul-Haq failed to enter the double-digits, scoring 4, 7, and 8.

Sarfraz Ahmed’s brisk 50 down the order took Pakistan past 150.

Deciding to bat despite a 227-run deficit, President’s XI scored 152 before the third and the final day ended with Powell notching 84 at a strike rate of 72.
