Abrar Ahmed claims 5-Wicket Haul on Test Debut – Setting New Test Records


Just In: Pakistan’s mystery spinner, Abrar Ahmed, dominated the first day of the 2nd test at Multan, demolishing the English batting line by taking five wickets on his debut, becoming the 13th Pakistan bowler to achieve this record.

The spinning wizard claimed all five wickets, giving Pakistan the upper hand on an opening day. With this, Abrar also becomes the first Pakistani bowler to take a five-wicket haul in the first session of a Test on debut.

Of course, the young gun has the potential to recreate history at Multan Cricket Stadium by further furnishing the best bowling figures in an inning by any Pakistani bowler, while English batters are continuously failing to read his bowling.

The 24-year-old claimed his first international test wicket by dismissing Zak Crawley and then took wickets of top English batters, including Ben Duckett, Joe Root, Ollie Pope, and Harry Brook.

Currently, the record belongs to the former pacer, Mohmmad Zahid, who took seven wickets for 66 runs against New Zealand in 1996. Internationally, Albert Trott has the milestone for the best bowling stats on debut with eight wickets, achieved in 1985.
