KARACHI: Left-handed batter Saud Shakeel impressed with his performances in the ongoing Test series against England. 

The 27-year-old batter scored four fifties in six innings after making his Test debut just two weeks ago but the question remains on his ability to convert the score in three figures. 

After another half-century on day three of the third Test against the English side, Saud was asked if he was facing any issues to convert his fifties into hundreds. 

"I know I haven't been able to convert my fifties into hundreds. Shots which give me runs, I am getting out on them," shared Saud who scored 346 runs in six innings. 

"I will go back and see videos to find out the mistakes. Thereafter, I will try to make comeback in upcoming games," he added. 

To a query about players being selfish in the national team, Saud said nobody wants to get out after scoring fifty. 

"Neither me, nor Babar wants to get out after scoring fifty. We are professionals and know how to identify mistakes and work on them" he said. 

"Dressing room's environment is ok. We sit and talk with coaches every time. I hope we will make a comeback in next matches," concluded Saud.

In the ongoing home Test series against England, Pakistan are on the verge of first-ever whitewash in their backyard.

After losing Rawalpindi and Multan Tests, Pakistan are almost done in the last Karachi Test.

England need just 55 runs tomorrow on the last day of the third Test. After bowling out Pakistan for 216, the tourists were set to chase 167 runs in two and a half day.

They scored 112 runs in just 17 overs for the loss of a wicket.
