It was English seamer James Anderson, who is a veteran and is a seasoned pro bagged his wicket early in the piece denting the Pakistan innings right up-front.

In this picture, he is seen taking evasive action as if he could not spot it well and in the process he gifted away his wicket away.

Masood is an extremely talented prospect from Pakistan; he came into limelight early during his initial days when he was spotted by Aaqib Javed. Early into his career he already has a Test ton to his name against Sri Lanka in a match where Pakistan was chasing a daunting 377 to win, he came up and delivered, scoring 125 and announcing himself at the big stage, on a day when he saw his nation seal a 2-1 series win at Pallekele.

In this series, Pakistan will look up to Masood to deliver at the start to grasp the early initiative. This will also sort them out with their openers’ conundrum.
