Abrar Ahmed, 24, has made a dream start to his test career with a five-for in his debut match against England.
As a result, the Karachi-born spinner became the first Pakistan bowler in Test history to pick up a five-wicket haul in the first session.
Within the first session of the opening day of the ongoing Multan Test, Ahmed dismissed Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, and Harry Brook, leaving England reeling at 167/5.
In the first session of the ongoing Test, no bowler other than Abrar Ahmed managed to take a wicket. Having decided to bat first in the second Test, England was at 180/5 at lunch.
On his debut, the leg-spinner became the 13th Pakistani bowler with a five-wicket haul. As well, he became the first Pakistani debutant to pick up five wickets on the first day of a Test match since Wahab Riaz at the Oval in 2010.
Leveling the series is Pakistan’s goal
As a result of appendicitis surgery, Pakistan are already without their pace master Shaheen Shah Afridi. Later, Haris Rauf, who made his Test debut against England in Rawalpindi, was also ruled out of the series.
As a result of a niggle in his right shoulder, Naseem Shah was ruled out of the second Test after picking up a five-wicket haul in the first Test. Mohammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, and uncapped spinner Abrar Ahmed have replaced them.
After winning the first Test in Rawalpindi, England currently leads the series 1-0. A Multan victory would give them an unassailable lead. In the ongoing Test, they have brought in fast bowler Mark Wood to replace injured all-rounder Liam Livingstone.
