Pakistan's T20I series against hosts West Indies had its fate sealed by torrential showers, and the cricketing caravan moves on the traditional format. The first Test starts on August 12, and Pakistani batsmen are leaving no stone unturned to prep themselves up for the gruelling challenge ahead.

Babar Azam and Mohammed Hafeez hit the nets while Sarfaraz Ahmed indulged in some wicketkeeping drills to sharpen his reflexes. The two-match Test series will mark the beginning of the campaigns for both sides in the new World Test Championship cycle.
