I honestly dont see what there to praise the innings Naeem played. Just hardcore defense. This is something thats required if your team is 8-9 down in first day of a test cricket. His defense isnt flawless at all. I dont see how difficult it would be to simply defend every ball.
I am not saying he cost us the match, but clearly the plan was to declare and have a go and Naeem played a complete contrast innings to what he was supposed to.
Imagine if we see that West Indies is somehow 7 down in their second innings tomorrow.
The conclusion would be, "If we only had 6-7 extra overs, maybe...." Thanks Naeem
