Pakistani debutant bowler Abrar Ahmed makes historic record in second Test against England
MULTAN – England bowled out for 281 in the first innings against Pakistan on Day 1 of the second Test at Multan Cricket Stadium on Friday.
Pakistani debutant Abrar Ahmed picked up 7 wickets and leg spinner Zahid Mehmood got three wickets.
England’s Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope scored half centuries. Earlier, England won the toss and elected to bat first.
The hosts are already without pace spearhead Shaheen Shah Afridi, who misses the series following an appendicitis surgery, and further injuries have forced them to make three changes.
Fast bowlers Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf are out, along with top-order batsman Azhar Ali.
The home side have replaced them with all-rounders Mohammad Nawaz and Faheem Ashraf and uncapped spinner Abrar Ahmed.
