Multan Pitch Report, Team Records at Multan Cricket Stadium for Pakistan vs. England 2nd Test

The ground at Multan Cricket Stadium is likely to provide a meaningful duel between bat and ball, which was thankfully lacking during the Pakistan vs. England 1st Test in Rawalpindi. However, this will be the first Test match in Multan in as many as 16 years, so the wicket will be fresh, with the batsmen enjoying the conditions on the first three days.

The track is predicted to help spinners from Day 3 onwards, while speed bowlers from both Pakistan and England will face challenges. The captain who wins the toss should undoubtedly select to bat first, given the average first innings total is 344 runs, and batting will be difficult on the final two days of the Test match, especially against spinners.
