England batter Harry Brook was once again at his best on the second day of the ongoing third Test against Pakistan at National Stadium in Karachi. Brook continued his golden form and notched up his third century of the series as the tourists got to 354 in reply to Pakistan’s 304.

The team’s total, however, could’ve been different if captain Ben Stokes had not been involved in a bizarre mix-up with Brooks and eventually lost his wicket with a run-out. It all happened during the 33rd over of England’s first innings when Brooks flicked Mohammad Wasim Jr‘s fifth ball towards deep mid-wicket and ran two runs with Stokes.

As the fielder reached near the ball, the duo tried to fetch an unlikely third run, but Brook stopped midway and turned his back upon seeing the incoming throw towards the non-strikers’ end. By then, Stokes had already sprinted towards the striker’s end. The throw was picked up by Mohammad Wasim as he lashed the bails off the stumps to run-out Stokes.

Here is the video:

Brook, meanwhile, is in the form of his life in this series. The right-handed batter has amassed 468 runs in just three matches at a mind-boggling average of 93.60 with three hundreds and one half-century. Brook said he is extremely confident of batting against spin which has been the biggest reason of his success in Pakistan.

“This pitch is slightly lower than the other pitches. We have had to go about a little bit differently and play it by ear. I’m feeling good at the minute; hopefully, it continues. I have scored a lot of runs in certain areas, and I stick to that. The majority of my batting has been against spin, and I’ve been very confident out here,” said Brooks after the end of the day’s play, as quoted by SkySports.
