Twitter Reactions: Fans get emotional over Misbah’s final appearance and troll Pakistan for sluggish approach

The fans were definitely not impressed with the way Azhar Ali made the ordinary bowling look exceptional on the day.

The second day of the third and final Test of the series saw the Pakistan team call the shots yet again. They resumed their overnight score of 169/2 against the hapless West Indies bowling lineup. The bowling unit of the hosts, which had castled up the visiting side for a paltry 81 in the previous game, looked very lackluster on the day. Despite the fact that the bowlers were not at their best, the Pakistani batsmen could not make the most out of the opportunity that beckoned.

Pakistan resumed the day’s play with Azhar Ali looking good for another ton and Younis Khan getting a decent start. Younis, who was playing his final Test, could manage to score onlu 18 before being dismissed by Jason Holder on 18. In walked Misbah-ul-Haq, another stalwart featuring in his final game. Misbah and Ali put on a brilliant stand to see the visitors in firm command of the game. In the process, Azhar Ali notched up another ton to continue his scintillating form.

Misbah also cruised past his individual fifty in his farewell game. However, he failed to add more to his tally of runs and perished after scoring 58. Azhar Ali followed him soon after and headed to the dressing room after notching up 127 runs in 334 balls. It was Roston Chase who cleaned him up in the game.

The fans were definitely not impressed with the way Azhar Ali made the ordinary bowling look exceptional on the day. They condemned the sluggish approach that the batsmen had during the day’s play. Sarfraz Ahmed, who came in at number 7, played a handy knock which brought back the interest of the fans on a slow-paced day.

Sarfraz hit 51 off 73 deliveries to help Pakistan stroll past 350-run mark. The tail could not do much and the innings wrapped up on 376 with Roston Chase picking four wickets. In response, West Indies finished the day with 14/0.

Here is how the fans reacted after the day’s play on the social media:
