The second day of the first Test, being played between Pakistan and South Africa, is over. Till the end of the day’s play, Pakistan have scored 308 runs at the loss of eight wickets thanks to the brilliant century of Fawad Alam (109). Hasan Ali 11 and Nauman Ali are 6 not out. South Africa had scored 220 runs in their innings. In this way, the hosts Pakistan took an 88-run lead in the first innings.
The second day Fawad scored 109 runs off 245 balls. During this, he hit nine fours and two sixes. The left-handed batsman completed his century by hitting a six off Keshav Maharaj’s ball. But after this, Lungi catches Angidi at midwicket. Fawad shared useful partnerships with veteran Azhar Ali for 94 for the fifth wicket, 55 for the sixth wicket with Mohammad Rizwan (33) and 102 for the seventh wicket with Fahim Ashraf (64).
Let me tell you that Favada started his Test career in 2009 but after that he did not get a chance to play matches for 10 years. He scored a century against New Zealand in December last year and again proved his ability in the team.
