PAK vs ENG 2nd Test Day 1: Abrar’s 7-wicket haul helped hosts to gain Command

PAK vs ENG 2nd Test Day 1: Pakistan & England are battling it out in a three-match Test series on Pakistan’s home turf. And after suffering a humiliating 74-run defeat at the hands of England in the first Test, Pakistan will look ahead to level the scores by winning the Multan Test.

Abrar Ahmed’s seven-wicket haul helped Pakistan to wrap their Innings at 281

Pakistan seemed defiant in its efforts on Day 1. They demolished the England batting attack on a mere 281 run total and put down a touchdown score of 107/2 at the end of Day 1. Winning the toss at the Multan Cricket Stadium, England skipper Ben Stokes made a clumsy decision to bat first.

England was off to a sluggish start after they lost their ace frontline batsman Zak Crawley for 19 runs. However, top-order batsmen Ben Duckett (63) and Ollie Pope (60) anchored England’s batting attack and scored a vital partnership of 83 runs for the second wicket.

The middle order led by Joe Root (8) and Harry Brooks (9) failed to hold the crease and were dismissed in quick succession. Skipper Ben Stokes (30) and Will Jacks (31) rescued the struggling middle-order efforts and put up a resilient 61-run stand for the sixth wicket. In the end, a commendable knock by Mark Wood (36) helped the touring party near the 300-mark.

For Pakistan, Abrar Ahmed was the most astonishing bowler who led the bowling attack and scalped 7 wickets for 114 runs. Zahid Mahmood also made a noteworthy contribution and chipped in 3 wickets for 63 runs.

PAK vs ENG 2nd Test: Pakistan posted 107-2 at the end of Day 1

Trailing by 281 runs, Pakistan was off to a disappointing start as they lost their top-order batsmen Abdullah Shafique (14) and Imam-ul-Haq (0) for a mere 51-run total. Skipper Babar Azam came in next and encountered a fighting escape by scoring 61 runs and putting up an unbeaten stand of 56 runs alongside Saud Shakeel (32).

Pakistan trail by 174 runs and will resume the proceedings on Day 2 at 107/2. Azam and Shakeel will take the crease for the hosts.
