Pakistan Inter-Squad Practice Match

Pakistan's frontline pace attack impressed on the third day of the final scheduled intra-squad match at the incora county ground in Derby. Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah each took three wickets while Mohammad Abbas bowled throughout the morning and conceded only 20 runs.

It was encouraging for the tourists, 10 days out from the first Test against England, although question marks over the batting remain with Abid Ali and captain Azhar Ali failing for a second time in the match.

Fawad Alam top scored with 43 for team white who led by 85 after being bowled out for 198. At the close, team green were 133 for 3, 48 in front.
