Asif wants to win second Test against England for Pak flood victims

London, Aug.5 (ANI): Pakistan fast bowler Mohammed Asif has said that he wants to win the second Test match against England at Edgbaston starting Friday (tomorrow) for the victims of the devastating floods that have killed over 1500 people and rendered millions homeless in country’s north western regions.

Asif said that his teammates would be sporting a black armband during the second match to mourn the death and destruction caused by the floods, which are being described as the country’s worst in the last 80 years.

“We disappointed in the last match and we need to fightback for them. They can see good cricket and they can forget,” The Daily Times quoted Asif, as saying.

Asif has been in brilliant form throughout the England tour, and provided Pakistan crucial breakthroughs in the first Test against the hosts, but could not prevent his side from losing the match at Trent Bridge by 354-runs thanks to a horrific show by the inexperienced batting order. (ANI)
