On a wicket where batters struggled most of the time we have Sohail Khan who is a bowler has played the best knock of the opening test. It was sheer entertainment from the fast bowler. He attacked the kiwi side and showed them his intentions pretty clearly.
Sohail innings is a perfect example for all the other Pakistani players. They have to bat with a clear mind. Sohail came out to bat last night and his intentions were to hit the ball hard from the ball one and he did that.
He did not stop himself much around. He attacked the New Zealand pace bowlers and there is no doubt that his shots were perfect. Some of them might not have come off the middle of the bat yet they served the purpose.
Pakistan batting would definitely like to indulge in the same flavor like Sohail. We have seen so far that Pakistani batters are keener in defending the ball all the time. This would not help them here. They have seen the results by doing that.
He made 40 runs in the second innings. Pakistan would like to add more runs to the lead but they have only got 2 wickets left. Also the pitch is getting perfect now. There is not much coming out from it now.
