Rawalpindi Test: Azhar Ali fit to bat on final day says PCB

RAWALPINDI: Experienced batter Azhar Ali, who sustained a blow to his index finger the other day has been declared fit to bat on the final day of the first Test as Pakistan are striving to chase 373 runs posted by England with three wickets down so far. 

According to the PCB spokesperson, the medical board declared the right-handed batter fit for play on the last day.

 

On Sunday,  Azhar underwent an X-Ray at a local hospital here as a precautionary method to examine a likely injury that the former sustained on the fourth day of the Rawalpindi Test.

Ollie Robinson’s short ball struck Azhar hard and hurt his index finger. The physio treated the right-handed batter on the field, but he made the decision to return to the pavilion.

The Rawalpindi Test entered a crucial stage as England struck down strong-looking Imam-ul -Haq, who was just two runs short of his fifty, early on day 5 to set the alarm bells ringing for Pakistan. The home side needs another 245 runs while England require seven wickets to win the first Test.
