Saud Shakeel shines in Pakistan’s victory:
Saud Shakeel had an important contribution in Pakistan’s victory. During the match, in response to 312 runs scored by Sri Lanka in the first innings, at one time Pakistan was struggling in its first innings by losing five top-order batsmen for just 101 runs.
From here, Shakeel not only decorated the innings, but also played the highest innings of his Test career while batting fiercely. Batting at number five in the first innings, he managed to score an unbeaten 208 off 361 balls and took Pakistan to a big score of 461 runs.
In the second innings, when the Green team was faltering while chasing the target, the 27-year-old batsman once again took the lead. This time, batting at number six, he made an important contribution of 30 runs in 38 balls. Meanwhile, six brilliant fours came out of his bat. Seeing this excellent performance of Shakeel in the Galle Test, he has been selected as the ‘Player of the Match’.
