    Pakistan vs England 3rd Test: Karachi Pitch Report

    As seen in the past, the pitch at the National Stadium in Karachi has provided quite competitive conditions both for the batsmen and bowlers throughout the five days of the Test match and something similar will be expected to happen during the PAK vs ENG 3rd Test starting from Saturday. The spinners will once again have a significant role to play in this Test match especially from Day 2 onwards which was also a case in Multan. However, the conditions will be nice for batting on the first three days of the Test match and the batters need to make it count once they are set on the pitch. It will be a perfect decision for the captain to bat first after winning the toss on this track.
