Before this, the Pakistani team is playing a warm-up match there, which is being played against the Prime Minister’s XI. But in this match, the condition of the Pakistani team has worsened, the condition of the new captain Shan Masood is such that he has had to field 8 bowlers.
Actually, Pakistan batted first in this match and made a big score of 391 runs. Captain Shan Masood played a brilliant inning of 201 runs, Pakistan felt that this was a better score for them but perhaps they took the Prime Minister XI team lightly.
