RAWALPINDI:

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.

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.

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