Srinagar: Despite the ongoing first Test match in Rawalpindi between Pakistan and England being a high scoring no thrilling encounter, there were still lot interesting and excitement one produced early on Day two between Ben Stokes and Naseem Shah.

In such a high scoring boring Test, such moments are worth cherish and that was pure moment of brilliance from the two cricketers.

The second days okay started with Ben Stokes charging down the track to hit pacer Naseem Shah for a six off the first ball.

After being shell-shocked straight over the back of his head in the first ball, the talented Pakistan right-arm pacer came back strongly to dismiss the England captain in the same over.

Stokes had taken a single off the next ball after hitting the six but got the strike back from Harry Brook a ball later.


Naseem Shah knew that Stokes would come again. Naseem Shah introduced variety like a T20 mode, take pace off the ball.

Stokes backed away and tried to make room but Naseem didn’t give him any pace. His well-disguised slower ball foxed the left-hander and rattled his stumps. Stokes walked back for 41 off 18 balls even as Naseem Shah roared. Amid all the batting carnage, this was a moment of brilliance from Pakistan’s Naseem Shah.

Naseem then went on to take two more wickets of debutant Liam Livingstone and the rampaging Harry Brook for 153.
