Nasser Hussain praised English Skipper over Rawalpindi Test Victory


Just In: Former England captain-turned-commentary Nasser Hussain has applauded Ben Stokes for showcasing brave captaincy skills that result in a famous victory against Pakistan on the last day of the first test in Rawalpindi.

While talking to a local sports channel, Nasser Hussian said, “I do not think I’ve seen a better week of captaincy than what we’ve just witnessed from that man. They had to get everything right to go 1-0 up, and they did. I can’t remember either in my playing days, watching cricket growing up, or commentating a better performance.”

“It was fitting it was Leach with the last wicket because Stokes has backed Leach since he took over as captain. Undoubtedly, Stokes has changed the culture and mindset of this England side. Since they took over, eight matches, seven wins, one loss,” he concluded.

It is pertinent to mention that the English skipper Ben Stokes had decided to declare in the second innings on the fourth day. Subsequently, Green Caps failed to cross the victory line, running 74 runs short, while Ollie Robinson and James Anderson each took four wickets on Day 5.
