After a string of disappointing batting performances, middle-order batsman Haris Sohail finally announced his return to form. In the ongoing Test match against Bangladesh, Pakistan looked in control at the end of day 2. However, Bangladesh did well on the third day as they removed Babar Azam, Asad Shafiq and Mohammad Rizwan early.
Amid all this, Haris Sohail stood tall and faced all the adversity. Forming crucial partnerships with Yasir Shah and Mohammad Abbas, the elegant lefty allowed Pakistan’s lead to go past 200. Doing so, he smashed his third half-century in Test cricket. In an innings of 75 runs, the 31-year old showed aggression as his strike rate was over 70.
He was eventually dismissed while attempting to clear the ropes against the left-arm spinner Taijul Islam. Nevertheless, it was a welcoming sight for management to see Haris going well as he recently struggled a lot. Despite a bit of anti-climax in Pakistan’s batting, the hosts, powered by Naseem Shah’s hat-trick, delivered a strong bowling show to take control of the Rawalpindi Test.
