Abrar Ahmed, a spinner for Pakistan, had a wonderful Test debut for the team against England on Friday. He not only grabbed five wickets, but he also closed the innings with outstanding numbers of 7/114. On Day 1 of the Test at Multan, his outstanding bowling enabled Pakistan to eliminate the visitors after they reached 281. Abrar secured a spot in the Test squad for the series against England after putting up strong performances for his national team Sindh in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy last month.

During his tenure with Sindh, Abrar shared a changing room with former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. He spoke about their discussions before he joined the national team’s roster. Before the second Test on Friday, he also said that he spoke with Sarfaraz.

Saifi Bhai: Achha Talluk, Bohot Kareebi. Abrar, jaise bhi khelo, ghabraana nahi hai, vo ye hi bolte the. Vase hi khelna hai jaise Sindh ke liye. Milegi kamyaabi In the press conference after the conclusion of Day 1, Abrar said, “(I have strong ties with Sarfaraz bhai. He constantly encourages me to not worry. I need to play the same way I play for Sindh, and I will succeed.)”

‘Aaj baat ki thi, ye hi bol rahe the ki jo aapne khela hai Sindh ki taraf se, usko hi andar leke jaana hai, zyada ghabraana nahi hai,’ the speaker said. Bowling karni hai bas concentration hoke. (We spoke today as well; he had said that you should play like you would for Sindh and concentrate only on your bowling),” the 24-year-old Pakistani star added.

After the day, Pakistan’s reply score was 107-2, with captain Babar Azam spearheading his team’s effort to win and tie the series with a composed 61 not out. The play was suspended due to poor lighting with Saud Shakeel on 32 at the opposite end.

Although Pakistan is still 174 down, they may be proud of how they have recovered since losing the first test in Rawalpindi.
