Pakistan captain Babar Azam decided to bat after winning the toss in Rawalpindi. Ashfaq and Imam have been batting well from the beginning. In the opening match, two Pakistani batsmen scored 105 runs. Although Ashfaq returned to the evening just 6 runs before the half century, Imam continued to play at the crease. 

The left-arm batsman scored a century in the third session after playing slowly in the first and second sessions. He played 200 balls to score 13 fours and 2 sixes.

Meanwhile, Pakistan is having a great time in Test cricket. Babar Ajmara has won 6 of the last 6 Tests. There are additional benefits to playing at home. That is why Pakistan will not talk about leaving Ajit.

Rain could hamper this historic Test. The day before the match for which no team could practice. Chance of rain from the third day of the match. But the batsmen will surely be happy to see the wicket of Rawalpindi. Run festival will be on flat wickets.
