Wishes also poured in for Pakistan wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan after he struck a brilliant fifty against England on Day 2 in Southampton. Saving the visitors from a collapse, Rizwan’s half-century ensured that Pakistan cross the 200-run mark. Rizwan ended the day on 60* and will be aiming to add a few more runs when Pakistan start Day 3 from 223/9.
Rizwan became the first wicket-keeper batsman to score a half-century in the last 10 Tests of Pakistan in England. Twitter was flooded with praises for him as he flaunted his resilient batting in tough conditions.

4. Sanjay Manjrekar opines on runs conceded towards third man in ENG-PAK Test
Just amazed by the number of runs conceded down to third man. Never understand this general reluctance to keep a third man. Need not come at the cost of a slip but may be extra cover or mid on. #ENGvPAK

6. Ian Bishop defends Babar Azam’s dismissal
Wow, can’t blame Babar Azam for that dismissal at all. That was as close to the perfect leg cutter from Stuart Broad. It really emphasizes how challenging batting in English conditions can be. A world-class Batsman playing well cant do anything about that.
