Pakistan are three wickets down against England on Day 1 of the ongoing third Test at the National Stadium in Karachi. Abdullah Shafique, Shan Masood and Azhar Ali have been dismissed. Babar Azam, who had won the toss and elected to bat, is holding fort for the hosts who made four changes with Azhar Ali, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Nauman Ali and Shan Masood replacing Mohammad Nawaz, Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Ali and the injured Imam-ul-Haq.
Azhar will play his farewell game for Pakistan in what will Rehan Ahmed’s Test debut for England as James Anderson sits out. England have the series in their pocket after victories in Rawalpindi and Multan.
