Pakistani leg-spinner Abrar Ahmed wreaked havoc in the Multan Test while making his debut against England and stopped England’s destructive batting for a small score.

The Pakistani team, which was thrashed by the English batsmen in the Rawalpindi Test, did not allow this to happen in the Multan Test and restricted England to just 281 runs. The reason for this was 24-year-old leg-spinner Abrar Ahmed, who took 7 wickets on the very first day of his Test debut. (TV9 Graphics)

Although veteran Indian batsman Virender Sehwag has a special identity as the Sultan of Multan, but now Pakistan has also got its own Sultan of Multan.  Abrar's performance is the best bowling in Tests at this ground.  (TV9 Graphics)
