Former army chief Gen (retd) Bajwa watches Rawalpindi Test

COAS retire

As the Rawalpindi Test between Pakistan and England enters into an interesting stage, former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa also came to the stadium to watch the match on the fourth day. As per details, former army chief also came to watch the match along with his family at around 2pm today.

Strict security arrangements were made on the occasion.

After watching the match for about two hours and the former military chief left the stadium.

Having taken a 78-run lead in the first innings, England declared their second innings on 264-7 to set Pakistan an improbable victory target of 343 with four sessions to go on Sunday.

On a docile pitch where seven batsmen smashed hundreds, England’s pace attack bent their backs and diligently pursued a short-ball strategy to dent Pakistan’s top order.

The home side finished the penultimate day on 80-2, still 263 behind their target, with number three batsman Azhar Ali unlikely to bat again after retiring hurt with a damaged finger.
