POSSIBLE LINE-UPS :

PAKISTAN :

Veteran batsman Younis Khan joined the team after missing first test due to dengue. That means, Babar Azam or Asad Shafiq will make a way for experienced Younis. Mostly it will be Babar’s turn who make a way.

1. Sami Aslam, 2. Azhar Ali, 3. Younis Khan / Babar Azam, 4. Misbah-ul-Haq, 5. Asad Shafiq, 6. Sarfraz Ahmed, 7. Mohammad Nawaz, 8. Wahab Riaz, 9. Yasir Shah, 10. Mohammad Amir, 11. Sohail Khan.

 

WEST INDIES :

West Indies were not in a game in first 3 days of play. But, they came back so hard on day 4 & 5. They last a test on final hour of 5th day. So, most probably there won’t be any changes in their side. If they do, it may be with opening slot. Shai Hope is in good form, he may get chance by replacing Leon Johnson.

1. Kraigg Brathwaite, 2. Leon Johnson / Shai Hope, 3. Darren Bravo, 4. Marlon Samuels, 5. Jermaine Blackwood, 6. Roston Chase, 7. Shane Dowrich, 8. Jason Holder, 9. Devendra Bishoo, 10. Miguel Cummins, 11. Shannon Gabriel / Alzarri Joseph.

 

ALL THE BEST TO ALL OF YOU!!
