Who is Abrar Ahmed: A Mystery Spinner who scalped seven wickets on his Test Debut

PAK vs ENG Test Series is grabbing the eyeballs for several reasons & the ongoing Multan test is no different. After suffering a humiliating 74-run defeat in the Rawalpindi Test at the hands of ‘The Bazball team’ Pakistan made a note of rectifying all their mistakes in the second Test. Keeping in mind Multan’s spin-friendly pitch Pakistan handed a debut to mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed. And management’s decision of bringing in newbie Abrar for the second Test proved fruitful for the hosts as the terrific spinner grabbed the limelight by scalping seven crucial wickets right on the first day of the Multan Test to wrap England’s innings at 281 runs.

Pakistan which has produced legendary spinners such as Abdul Qadir, Mushtaq Ahmed & Saqlain Mushtaq has added one more name to the list by handing Test Cap to debutant Abrar Ahmed. The 24-year-old mystery spinner made his presence felt on his debut fixture by scalping seven wickets for England’s team & wrapping their innings at 281 runs on the first day of the Multan Test.

He scalped seven wickets for 114 runs in 22 overs by dismissing Zak Crawley, Ben Duckett, Joe Root, Ollie Pope, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook & Will Jacks while the last three wickets were scalped by Zahid Mahmood. Abrar’s seven-wicket haul helped Pakistan to wrap up England’s innings for just 281 runs. For England, Duckett & Pope played valorous knocks of 63 & 60 to help England to end their innings at 281 runs.
