Babar Azam’s participation in the second Test is also uncertain

Karachi: Babar Azam’s participation in the second Test from New Zealand is also uncertain.

Even before the start of the T20 series against New Zealand, Babar Azam had a thumb in his right hand during practice. He could not play in all the three short matches and then in the first Test. Injury has improved and he has started knocking with hardball.

According to sources, the captain is still not 100 per cent fit, there is still pain in his thumb, he has not batted in the net so far, the team management did not take any risk before the home series against South Africa. Is considering giving it a chance to relax. If that happens, he will return from New Zealand without playing a match, so Mohammad Rizwan Kohi will have to take the lead in the second Test as well.
Sources also said that Babar plans to have net practice in Christchurch on Friday and Saturday, and if he does not feel any discomfort during this time, the management may change its decision.

On the other hand, the sources added that after the defeat in the first Test, head coach Misbah-ul-Haq, bowling coach Waqar Younis and batting coach Younis boosted the team’s morale. Kim Beck directed.
