Pak vs SL: Babar Azam all set for Galle
On Saturday, Pakistan, captained by Babar Azam, and Sri Lanka, captained by Dimuth Karunaratne, will begin the Galle Test. The performance of the spinners in competition is anticipated with great interest. Captain Babar, though, is up to the challenge. The 27-year-old cricketer captioned Twitter photos of his three-day warm-up match against Sri Lanka Cricket XI with the words “getting ready for Galle.” Babar scored 88 runs off 113 balls in a tie game at the Colts Cricket Club Ground.
A total of eight fours and four sixes were among his hits. Recently, Babar’s batting has been outstanding. He scored 196 runs in March, when the squad lost the home series to Australia by one game to none. Sri Lanka fell to Australia on a severe turner in Galle, but they bounced back to beat the tourists on Monday. These Tests will take place between 2021 and 2023 as a part of the ICC World Test Championship Cycle. On July 24-28, two matches will take place: the first at Galle International Cricket Stadium, and the second at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
