Having won the 2nd Test match against Australia by 356 runs, Pakistan took the Test series 2-0, in what is their first Test series win against the Aussies in 20 years.
Appreciating the team’s performance, former skipper and legendary pacer Wasim Akram termed it an “incredible win”, more so in the absence of key players like the spin wizard Saeed Ajmal, who is facing a suspension due to his action.
“This is an incredible win for Pakistan. Pakistan gave an extraordinary performance, something I had not expected before the series with Saeed Ajmal not there and because of batting weaknesses,” he stated.
In Ajmal’s absence, Zulfiqar Babar and Yasir Shah took spin duties and played a big role in the side’s victory.
“I had thought Australia would be tough to beat but kudos to our players like Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq and spinners that they made Australia look an ordinary team,” Wasim further said.
He also lauded praise on Pakistan’s batting line up, especially Younis Khan, who scored two centuries in the first Test and a double hundred in the second.
Even skipper Misbah-ul-Haq refuted his critics by scoring the fastest 50 in Test history during the Abu Dhabi match. He also managed to score his 100 in 55 balls, equaling West Indian legend Vivian Richards’ record.
