Match time, TV info and Pitch Report
The second Test at Southhampton’s Ages Bowl is scheduled to be played from August 13 and the day will start at 03:30 pm Indian time.
It was seen in the England vs West Indies series that this field helps fast bowlers. The conditions here also help the fast bowlers to achieve movement. The match can be seen live on Sony Network and the SonyLIVE app.
Stokes will not Participate
Recently all-rounder Ben Stokes withdrew himself from the remaining two matches of the series citing personal reasons.
England could give Jack Crowley another chance to strengthen the batting. Fast bowler Oli Robinson has also been included in the Test team.
In the first Test, England had fielded four fast bowlers in the form of James Anderson, Stewart Broad, Chris Woakes and Jofra Archer.
Pakistan can land an extra fast Bowler
Even though Pakistan had done everything right until the first half of the first Test, they could not take advantage of it later.
Surprising everyone, he fielded two leg-spinners in the form of Shadab Khan and Yasir Shah and he also got the advantage in the first innings.
Shadab was not bowled too much in the first match and Pakistan could field veteran Wahab Riaz, given the atmosphere of the Ages Bowl.
These records can be made in a Match
Pakistan captain Azhar Ali, who has scored 5,937 runs in 79 Tests at an average of 42.10, will have the chance to become the fifth Pakistani batsman to score 6,000 Test runs.
