Fans on Twitter reacted in joy after 18-year-old England spinner Rehan Ahmed removes Pakistan’s Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan in his debut Test to complete the fifer. They took a jibe at the premier batters and said that even an 18-year-old kid is owning Pakistan.
Rehan Ahmed’s five-wicket haul bundles out Pakistan for just 216 runs in the second innings
In what has been a sensational spell of spin bowling, 18-year-old leg spinner Rehan Ahmed picked a five-wicket haul in his debut Test and helped his team put a step closer to victory.
After England took a lead of over 50 runs in the first innings, Rehan made sure that he helped his team restrict the opposition to a low total and chase a low total. The leg-spinner, who picked two wickets in the first innings, backed it up with a wonderful performance in the second innings.
Rehan picked the first scalp in Babar Azam, who was batting beautifully at 54 with a delivery that was half-tracker. The wicket of the Pakistani skipper boosted his confidence as he then removed Mohammad Rizwan with a leg break outside off, which was caught by keeper Ben Foakes.
If this was not enough he then removed well-settled Saud Shakeel for 53 runs to take three wickets. He then chipped in the two quick wickets in Mohammad Wasim Jr and Agha Salman to complete his first five-wicket haul in the Tests. His impressive spell helped England bundle out Pakistan for just 216 and set themselves a target of 167 runs.
