WBBL 2021 | Adelaide Strikers on a roll, dismantle Harmanpreet Kaur’s Renegades to march into Final
25 Nov 2021
Pakistan and Bangladesh will be up against each other in Chattogram in the first Test of the two-Test series. The two sides faced each other in the three-match T20I series where Pakistan clinched a 3-0 whitewash win.
The Babar Azam-led side has been in some brilliant touch in the shorter format of the game. Earlier, they won five matches in the T20 World Cup before losing the semi-final and would now look to unleash similar dominance.
The visitors have already announced the 12-man squad for the first match. While Babar would lead the team, the unit would have experienced lads such as Mohammad Rizwan, Fawad Alam and Azhar Ali.
