I rate him.
He is solid.
He is gritty.
His stats make impressive reading.
He has been one of our better openers over the years especially in the longer version of the game.
He has even been tipped to be Pakistan's next test captain after Misbah.
However, in his last 6 test innings he has been trapped LBW of 4 occasions in similar fashion.
Seems to fall over his front pad and lose his shape/head position.
A technical area of weakness which is being exploited.
He will be disappointed to miss out on a flat track.
On the first ball he faced he got a gift on his legs and clipped it through mid wicket. 4..... all day.
He must have been thinking it was to be his day.
The 2nd over he faced it was a wicket maiden.
Credit to Jarvis. He made the new ball talk and did the trick. He got his man.
