Pakistan captain Babar Azam did not give a chance to Abrar Ahmed in the Rawalpindi Test but when this mystery spinner got a chance in Multan, he did wonders. Abrar Ahmed did the feat of taking five wickets in the first innings of his debut test. In the first session of the Multan Test, five wickets fell for Pakistan and all these five victims were done by Abrar Ahmed. Like the last Test, England batted fast in this match as well. However, during this time Abrar was seen becoming an obstacle in his path. England scored fast runs but Abrar gave five shocks on seeing them.
Let us tell you that Abrar Ahmed is the first player of Pakistan who completed a five-wicket haul in the very first session on their Test debut. Earlier in the year 2010, Wahab Riaz had made a record of completing five wickets on the first day of the debut test, but Abrar took five wickets in just one session. By the way, a total of 13 bowlers from Pakistan have done the feat of taking five wickets in an innings on their Test debut.
England trapped in Abrar’s ‘claws’
Babar Azam handed over the ball to Abrar Ahmed in the 9th over itself. This leg-spinner of Pakistan did not disappoint his team. On the fifth ball of the first over, he bowled Jack Crawley on a wonderful googly. After this England made a counterattack on Abrar but this player did not panic. Abrar showed Ben Duckett the way to the pavilion and after that, he took the wickets of mystery spinner Joe Root, and Olly Pope. Before lunch, Abrar completed his five wickets by dismissing Harry Brook.
Babar Azam was reminded of his mistake!
Please tell that Babar Azam did not give this player a chance in playing XI in the Rawalpindi Test. After this questions were raised about the decision of the Pakistani captain. Not only the Test series, but former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram had also talked about giving Abrar a place in the T20 World Cup team, but this player did not get a chance. Well now when Abrar got a chance, he proved his talent by getting a five-wicket haul.
