Asad Shafiq, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz (Again!) and Imran Khan all get a mention in today’s International Duck Watch. The Pakistan quartet faced a grand total of seventeen deliveries between them as the tourists collapsed from 131-0 to 230 all out in the second Test against New Zealand. The result sealed a 2-0 series victory for the hosts.
Like Pakistan, England also find themselves 2-0 down though they still have two Tests in which to restore parity. Ha!
Having survived last night, nightwatchman Gareth Batty fell for nought and fellow spinner Adil Rashid soon joined him. Indian opener Murali Vijay also failed to get off the mark as the hosts (Patel 67 not out) knocked off the runs for the loss of two wickets. A special mention to nineteen-year-old Haseeb Hameed (59 not out) who despite a tour ending finger injury managed to outscore all but one other batsman (Joe Root 78) in England’s second innings.
