December 4, 2022 07:17 PM
Former army chief Gen (Retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa on Sunday saw the ongoing first test match between England and Pakistan at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The former four-star general who commanded one of the most powerful armies in the world for six years remained in the stadium for some time among the spectators to view the game.
At the end of the fourth day of the test match, Pakistan further need 263 runs to win the match tomorrow, the fifth and last day of the match while England require eight more wickets to turn the game in its favor.
Pakistan have lost the wickets of Babar Azam and Abdullah Shafique in their chase of 343 runs. At stumps on Day 4, Pakistan reached 80/2, still needing 263 runs to win on the final day.
Earlier, Harry Brook and Joe Root blasted quick-fire fifties as England set Pakistan an imposing 343-run target to win the opening Test.
The public appearance of Gen Bajwa soon after his retirement raises many questions.
In his Defence Day speech, his last one as army chief, General Bajwa claimed that he would not appear in the public anymore. However, only five-day after his retirement, Qamar Javed’s public entrance tells another story.
