When the players should have been taking the field at 11:00am local time (1000 GMT) for the second day of four, they remained in the pavilion, with the pitch and square under protective covers while the floodlights shone brightly against a gloomy sky. <p></p> <p></p>The umpires then announced they would take lunch 45 minutes early in the hope of making a prompt start to the second session. Kent are 39 for one in reply to Pakistan's first innings 168, a total in which <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/imam-ul-haq">Imam-ul-Haq</a>'s 61 was the top score. <p></p> <p></p>Uncapped at Test level, Imam's inclusion in the tour squad generated debate because the 22-year-old left-hander is the nephew of Pakistan chief selector and former international batsman Inzamam-ul-Haq. But there was no denying Imam's talent or application as he struck nine fours in a 111-ball innings played in typically English overcast and swing-friendly conditions that favoured the bowlers, with medium-pacer Will Gidman taking five for 47. <p></p> <p></p>Kent were one for one in reply when <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/hasan-ali/">Hasan Ali</a>, one of the stars of Pakistan's one-day Champions Trophy tournament win in Britain last year, had Daniel Bell-Drummond lbw. Kent will resume with Sean Dickson 24 not out and captain Joe Denly 12 not out. <p></p> <p></p>After this match, Pakistan face Northamptonshire before providing the opposition for Ireland's inaugural Test, in Malahide, from May 11-15. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan then recross the Irish Sea for a two-Test series against England at Lord's (May 24-28) and Headingley (June 1-5).
