PAK vs ENG: Test cricket is back in Pakistan once again. The England team has reached Pakistan to play the Test series after almost 17 years. The first match of the three-Test series is being played in Rawalpindi from today. However, on the very first day of the match, such an incident happened, due to which Pakistan’s nose was cut in front of the British in world cricket. Meanwhile, the openers of England thrashed the bowlers of Pakistan fiercely. From the first session to the second session, the Pakistani bowlers ran all over the ground and did not get a single breakthrough. The England team was seen batting in the style of T20 as well in the Test. Meanwhile, the entire Pakistani team lost their sweat, every bowler was used, but none of them worked in front of England.

Clouds of crisis were hovering over the first test match
The clouds of crisis were hovering over the first Test between Pakistan and England. Just a day before the match, several players of the England team suddenly fell ill, including captain Ben Stokes. After this it was believed that the Test match could go ahead for at least one day. After this talks went on between the Pakistan Cricket Board and the England and Wales Cricket Board and it was decided that the match would take place only if the England players were fine before the match. The England team was in a position to play on Thursday, so the match started. But no one expected that the players who were sick a day earlier, after entering the match, would bat against Pakistan in such a way that there would be a stir in the whole of Pakistan. In the meanwhile another disturbance occurred. The Pakistani team could not even get DRS in the first innings. There was no fault of the umpire in this.

The DRS machine broke down early in the first day of the first Test.
In fact, when the first test started, it was found that the DRS machine had broken down. The exercise to repair the machine went on, but to no avail. Under compulsion, it was decided that DRS would not be available to the Pakistani team for some time, that is, the decision taken by the umpires would be the final decision. Its loss was to Pakistan only. The Pakistani bowlers created a chance against Jack Crawley when he appeared to be out, but was given not out by the umpire. The Pakistani team could have gone for DRS against it, but the machine itself was bad and the Pakistani team was left fuming.

England team batted in T20 style in Test
Meanwhile, the way the England team thrashed the Pakistani bowling, probably the Pakistani team and the whole country will remember it for years. In Test cricket, it is not easy for England to cross the 100-run mark in the first 13.5 overs. Jack Crawley completed his half-century in just 38 balls. It seemed that T20 cricket is being played with white jersey and red ball. The special thing was that often maiden overs are also bowled in Test cricket, but the England team did not play a single maiden over in the first session and the team is not able to score runs at its own pace. Former Pakistani players and many veterans were also seen saying on social media whether the Pakistani team is playing cricket on its own land. It has to be seen what is the result of this match, whether the Pakistani team is also able to give a befitting reply to the British or not.
