New T20 captain Sarfraz Ahmed was instrumental in their pursuit scoring 90 off only 73 balls. He has been in splendid structure all through the visit. Pakistan too have gotten crisp blood for the diversion, including Amad Butt, Khalid Latif and Sohail Tanvir, while Sami Aslam, Yasir Shah, Umar Gul, Hasan Ali and ODI captain Azhar Ali are flying back home subsequent to being dropped.There will be no getting away from the recollections of Eden Gardens when Ben Stokes grabs hold of the ball in a 20-over challenge interestingly since that game changing last over of the World T20. Carlos Brathwaite’s four sequential sixes tore the trophy from England’s grip and left one of their most wholehearted campaigners on his knees and grief stricken. He’s bobbed back in every single other configuration since that day – damage despite – yet it’ll be entrancing to check whether he’s trusted to return to on the steed again with regards to the demise overs.
