By capturing seven wickets in the first innings of the second Test match on Friday, rookie Pakistani spinner Abrar Ahmed stunned the England team. The leg spinner dismissed all seven of England’s top batsmen, including Joe Root and skipper Ben Stokes. At one point, England was 117/1 when the rookie got four quick wickets to change the score to 167/5. It was challenging for the visitors to achieve 281 in the first innings since Abrar demolished the top order and took 10 wickets in the process.

Due to his exceptional performance, Abrar quickly gained notice, and many cricket experts began to refer to him as a “mystery spinner.” Ben Duckett, who hit a half-century in the first inning for England, ignored the focus on Abrar. In the second innings, the English hitters will be well-prepared for the Pakistani spinner, according to Duckett, who acknowledged to Sky Sports after the first day’s play that his bowling lacked any true element of surprise.

“Since I can only communicate with one person at a time, I was aware that I was conversing with him. He wasn’t very enigmatic; he was simply a great leg-spinner with a great googly. We won’t be getting in the way, I’m fairly sure of that, but we’ll have our plans for the second inning, said Duckett. Today, he bowled well. His googly was much slower, even though I imagine I swept 90% of the time and you don’t always search for it when you sweep. Most of the men said that they all chose him. After explaining his decision to use the spinner in the second innings of the match, Duckett said that the spinner “just bowled some magnificent deliveries, and unfortunately for us, it was his day.”

Most of the film was of him bowling in the nets, and there weren’t many left-handed bowlers to be seen. I would like not to be concerned about what he may do, make assumptions about his motivations, or be aware of all of his tactics. As Mr. Duckett put it “I’d rather think about how I may hurt him.
