Sohail Khan drops easiest catch, 2nd Test vs Australia 2016

Sohail Khan is the right arm pacer of Pakistan Cricket Team. Sohail Khan is a very talented bowler. He came in the Team in second test in the place of Rahat Ali. Sohail Khan can swing the ball a little bit fro close to bat and that is very difficult to play. Sohail Khan now a days batting very brilliantly as well.

In the current series against Australia Sohail Khan was not so good with the ball but he has done very good with the bat. He has made his maiden Test fifty in the first innings of the second Test. Sohail Khan while fielding in the boundary line drops an easiest catch of Mitchell Starc of Azhar Ali. Starc also made his Test Fifty. Azhar Ali couldn’t believe when Sohail Khan drops the easy catch.

One can only wonder on Sohail Khan here. He did not had to move much. The ball was coming at him like a dolly and yet he just spilled it out. This was a flighted ball from Azhar Ali. It was on the off stump and Starc went for a big heave on the leg side. Now he was not in the right position to play this kind of a shot. The ball was too full to be hit on the leg side like this. It hit the top edge of the bat and went straight to Sohail at long off and he just could not take it. His fielding was horrible here.

Pakistan at the moment has lost the game. This catch did not put much effect to the overall result of the game. It was a complete failure from Pakistan after the first innings batting. Pakistan failed for the third time in six months on day 5. Previously against England and New Zealand now Australia.

The batting in the second innings for Pakistan was a completely sad story. The fall of wickets show us that a few batsmen got their poor lucks running out. Azhar and Babar both were given out on balls which could have been given not outs as well. There was that clipping the stick thing involved for them.

Then others just could not resist under pressure. Misbah accepted that despite being one of the good test sides in the world, his team cannot pursue a situation under pressure. He said that this is something we all have to accept now. Pakistan could not even have the bowling going. The bowling is really poor from them again. Definitely it is time to give some youngsters a chance in the test format.
