The former coach of the Pakistan Cricket Team, Mickey Arthur, believes that Pakistan will beat home-siders England by almost 30 runs.
As of now where England are looking forward to chasing the 277 runs target given by their opponent that has struck really exceptional, Abbas has grabbed the opening batsman, Rory Burns, on a low score of 10.
The second innings for Men in Green have not gone excellent so far comparing to that of the first one. After managing 326 runs on the opening day of Test one at Old Trafford, England’s bowlers got dominant in Pakistan’s second innings grabbing all on 169.
Shan Masood, who added a brilliant century on day 1, fall short of luck in the second innings as Stuart Broad got him on a duck. Babar Azam, who managed a remarkable and attention-seeking half-century, could knock only five of twenty balls.
The side was not looking much efficient and the low score diminished the confidence level of the players and deprived the virtual fans of expectations until Yasir Shah added his 33 to make the score looking decent. On the slow pitch, it will not be an easy chase for England as now they trail by 277 runs.
Mickey also believes Shadab and Shaheen will grab up all of their batsmen winning massively for their Nation.

It is to be noted that Mickey Arthur became the coach of the Sri Lanka Cricket Team in December. Since then, the team’s performance has not been sound enough.
