The time period was coined after former New Zealand wicket keeper Brendon McCullum took over as the pinnacle coach of the England Check workforce. Bazball denotes an aggressive and fearless model of cricket.
Now, Pakistan appeared to have taken a cue from England and adopted the identical strategy in opposition to Sri Lanka within the present Check sequence.
Pakistan’s aggressive model of play impressed the previous pacer Shoaib Akhtar who coined the time period ‘PakBall’ after his workforce’s dominating efficiency in opposition to Sri Lanka.
“Is #PakBall turning into a little bit of a factor?,” Akhtar tweeted on Monday.
After bundling out Sri Lanka for 166, Pakistan took management on the primary day of the second Check and as they scored 145-2 in simply 28.3 overs in Colombo.
Abdullah Shafique displayed his batting prowess with a powerful knock of 74 runs, whereas the skipper Babar Azam, not out at eight, accompanied him on the crease when play was halted on account of dangerous mild.
Shafique and the left-handed Shan Masood (51) shaped a formidable partnership of 108 runs for the second wicket, showcasing their attacking strategy and placing Sri Lanka on the defensive.
The guests registered a four-wicket victory within the first Check in Galle.
