Earlier on Friday, Pakistan debutant mystery spinner Abrar Ahmed dazzled England, taking seven wickets as the tourists were dismissed for 281 on the first day of the second Test in Multan.

The 24-year-old right-arm spinner dismissed Zak Crawley (19), Ben Duckett (63), and Joe Root (8) in the opening two hours before sending Ollie Pope (60) and Harry Brook (9) back to the pavilion.

Ahmed became the thirteenth Pakistani bowler to record five or more dismissals in a single inning.

Despite frequently losing wickets, England scored runs quickly, with Duckett hitting nine boundaries and a six and Pope smashing five over the rope.
